Report: ABS Light Due to Brake System Control Unit Failure
Chevrolet Astro Problem

ABS light went on at 100,000 miles. Dealer quote was ~$2000.00. I even replaced the ABS control unit with a salvage yard part and the light is still on. Brakes work fine anyway without the ABS. Now at 250,000 I think the van has paid for itself many times over and I will retire it soon.
ABS warning light on, diagnostic ABS system controller module. Web search shows rebuilt units at $600-$800. Need to decide to live with no ABS or replace. Hoping to keep the van for several more years it's a good utility van. We only but 1-2,000 miles on it a year.

brakes go to floor when light is OFF , only front brakes when light is on.can still press pedal to floor with some resistance whether light is on or off.
