ABS Control Module - 08 Grand Cherokee WK

Hey guys, I was reaching out cause I have been told by my local Jeep dealer that my ABS control module is bad and needs to be replaced. They quoted me $1400! I was looking for some advice to see if anyone has done this previously themselves, was it difficult and where did you source your parts? The stock part from Mopar is

part is @850$ (600$wholesale) I do not know labor and a system bleed with a scanner would be needed.

Are the guaranteeing this will correct the issue?

Maybe tell us your issue, codes, any info you could. Very often electrical circuit type codes.

For that price it might be worth checking a local pick-a-part and go used.

I paid $175 for an ABS module for my 2011 Grand Cherokee from moparonlineparts. If its just the module, that is held onto the pump with 4 screws. Not hard to do but you need a scan tool to do a calibration test. $1400 is way too high just to replace the module.

Seems steep. Do you need the module and valve assembly or just the module? I got a brake module for my 09 for $275 from the Jeep dealer, wholesale though since I work for a shop. Then install was 1.6hrs and calibration would have been 1hr but I did that myself with a good scan tool.

I'm unsure of the pump and model are bad. My brakes still work just fine. As far as symptoms I hear a metallic ping sound when I hit about 10 - 15 MPH them my break light, esp, abs and traction control lights all come on and stay on the entire drive. Someone mentioned to me previously that they had a similar issue because coolant was getting on some type of wire harness, I had a water pump fail and I am getting more leaks off coolant but I doubt that's really my issue

There are a couple flavours of that module. Some have an accelerometer in them for rollover protection so make sure you get one from the same model year and part # if you go used. Call the dealer and ask them if they need to program the VIN into it if you buy a new one. I had mine off to change the booster & master cylinder...seemed to bleed OK manually. I bled it before I bled the brakes. Anticipate replacing a couple calipers if you brake the bleeder screws on them.

Sorry for the slow response to this guys, so I have 2 questions for you? How do I use a scan tool to calibrate this and where do I get one? Also if I can't do this, could I install a new pump/control module bleed the system and expect to be able to drive safely to the dealership a few miles down the road? Also can the entire unit on mine be bad? The breaks still funtion as if there are no issues. Besides the lights, a code and some traction control mishaps in sharp left turns going 5 or so MPH I couldn't tell a problem.

Put a want-add on Craigslist to see if you can get somebody to come calibrate it for you, this was a popular service in the past. You could probably disable it by removing a fuse but you would obviously be down some safety systems (ie. I am not taking any responsibility if you do this).

So I finally finished my long ordeal with my passenger CV axle (never buying non Mopar axles again)! And I'm not running into this issue anymore, from what I can tell. All seems normal and I'm not getting any dash lights on. Do you guys think this problem still present? As far as I know The ABS sensors ran off the hubs not the CV axles so I'm confused.
