junk parts are never a good idea. with all the parts you have thrown at it, you could have repaired it with new and solved the problem for less money.

the module is a common failure and because of this you have put in several that have failed. you should only use new if you want it repaired correctly. put all the wiring back to original and get to a shop for a real diag with a bid.

This may be a case for a diagnosis by anqualified shop with a scan tool or a pin point test to find out exactly what is happening with your ABS system. It could be as simple as a relay failure, ground or a poor connection. Spend the money for a diagnosis, it may be cheaper than throwing parts at it.
