Unable to stop car slowing down for stop sign. Hit car in front of me. NO WARNING LIGHTS at all. Drove to nearest dealer the next day very, very slowly. Service found air entering into ABS Modulator. Modulator replaced, cost $1,400. As per service, out of warranty. Still trying to get regional rep to fight this charge. To make matters worst, received ticket even though modulator defective? Get the not my job feeling?
As described above. $2200 problem plus labor.
Brake pedal is going all the way to the floor. Brakes need to be pumped up a second time to so it doesn't go to the floor. Not yet fixed, don't have $1,000 laying around for the ABS modulator part aside from the service costs.
