Customer Question

The ABS pump on my Toyota Prius stopped working.
JA: Have you checked the brake fluid? And have the brakes been squeaking?
Customer: I have checked the brakes, and they have not been squeaking.
JA: What year is your Prius?
Customer: 2003.
JA: Are you fixing your Prius yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am fixing it myself. I was driving and both the brake and ABS light came on and the car started making a high-pitched wailing sound. I took the car in and had the codes read. It said the pump was seized open. The brakes basically stopped working by the time I got home. Had to press them extremely hard to get the car to stop.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I am just trying to figure out the location of the ABS pump and hopefully get pointed in the direction of what the process for replacing it is.
