    Who says that it failed?? Most of the time shops and dealerships condemn the ABS pump when all they really need is an ABS Module i.e. $300-400 vs $1200 +. You may just have a wheel speed sensor problem. I have yet to see any ABS pump wear out, after all it is an electric motor, I have seen zillions of ABS Modules go out, because the internal relays wear out.

    Get a second opinion and refer to this answer, it will make the Tech sharpen up if he/she knows that they are being scrutinized.

    Is it possible for the pump to fail while driving and what would happen if it did? There was no warning lights on before it died.
