I have a Passat 2001 1.8 T, with 160k miles. A few days back, the brake & ABS light came on. I took it to a mechanic to check the code, and he confirmed it is ABS controller module issue. The mechanic suggested to me it can be replaced only by dealer. The dealer estimate was way too high.
I did some searching on the internet and found a couple of people on ebay who repair the ABS Module controller and charge around 70$. Based on my reading on internet, it looks like some internal wiring connection broke in the ABS Module controller and the guys listed on ebay fix the internal connections.
Has anybody had a similar problem or any suggestions to fix it?
