My ABS system is leaking hydraulic fluid, but the rest of the braking system seems to be ok. But since both the front, back and ABS system draw fluid from the master cylinder, it empties out and leaves the brake system without fluid. Is there a simple way to shut off the and lock out the fluid system that fills the ABS system without loosing front and rear brakes?

    ABS Module is part of the brake system.. I do not know of a way to remove it. You'll need to have it repaired. Good luck.

    Thanks for the response. As the repair is more than the value of the vehicle, we need to give this some thought
