If you are not getting any faults but you are getting communication with the ABS module, I would want to get this on a factory scan tool for code reading. These vehicles are extremely particular about cooperating with third party scanners in several circumstances, ABS being one of them. In addition I would want to scan the ELCAT module as well as it has a few faults that can occur and trip the ABS/TCL lights too.

If the scan tools are not communicating with the ABS module, then you would want to double check all of your fuses are intact and connections on the pump are tight, else the ABS pump/module assembly would be suspect.

For what it is worth... these pumps/modules rarely fail. The majority of the time when I get these cars in from other shops after they have given up it is just a matter of using the factory scan tool to be able to read it properly.
