    If the pump is running possible short, The module supplies the power to the pump. Have the module scanned for codes and post here. If the pump is running unplug the pump from the module, 2 wire connector.

    Make sure you can read the ABS module. A code reader will not read it.

    Common, some of the modules can be repaired, others only replaced. Search online for ABS module repair and be very specific matching the picture of the module to the one on your truck.
