I just replaced my abs module and my mechanic told me I got one with the wrong vin# (used part) he informed me that I needed to go to a dealership and get it reprogrammed to match the car I called to set an appointment and was told that that it was not possible to do that. is this true and what kind of problems or damage can be done driving it in this condition

replaced abs module with used one
hello, that is true and al modules are VIN # XXXXXXXX and all replacements come blank then are programmed to match the car that they are installed in -- as with this module -- it will not function correctly,tim
any further info required--please let me know?
is there any way to get a used replacment part that will work/
is there any way to get a used replacment part that will work?
a used part will not work -- they do make rebuilt ones that have been reset /come blank
is there any way to get the one I got reset
what is involved with rebuilding
the rebuilding is repair of circuits then reprogramming with computer--
if each car has a individual vin # then why do they sell them used?
they should not
do you know of a company that does sell re manufactured modules
the process -- when replacing any module -- is to install -- then hook up dealer computer -- reconfigure module and instal vin # XX match
napa auto parts
so is there a chance that this one is blank and just needs replacement
If it came out of a used car -- it will not work --
thanks for the napa tip
