HI,

Ok, did your mechanic tell you the fault codes for the ABS system or what on the ABS system needs to be replace - control module, hydraulic unit, wheel speed sensor?

And you just wanting to know what cost of repair should run?

Expert:  Eric replied 2 months ago.

HI,

Possible causes are the control module, hydraulic unit, voltage protection relay, wheel speed sensor, wiring harness, modulator valve.

Cost of repair will run from $80 on low end for the relay up to $1000 for the control unit or hydraulic unit.
