ABS module unit replacement and installation

(2000 Volkswagen Passat)
in Riverside, CA on October 29, 2010
What is an average time and labor cost for installing new ABS module unit in my 2000 Passat V-6? I have the part so I don't need a price for part. Thank you.

The cost for the labor on replacing the ABS module is usually around $450.00. It covers:
1) Remove and replace
2) Code module
3) Bleed brake system.

The VW dealer quoted me about $487 so your $450 is about right. However, I went to an independent VW repair shop and paid $163 for installation of ABS unit. The dealer wanted to charge me about $1,400 for the part and service (labor). I was able to get the ABS module including pump (new) for a special price of $330 plus s. tax for a total savings parts and labor of approx. $900. Had I not received this deal, I probably would have driven my car without the ABS repair since the regular brakes worked fine. I was hoping to get a deal by buying the part myself and looking for a repair shop that was reasonable in my residential area. Moreover, I was planning to sell my car and it would be difficult with that bleeping "Stop" ABS failure" flashing on my dash.

Contact the module master (google it) in Moscow, Id. You mail your abs module the them, the fix it sende it b back with a five year warranty. About three hundred bucks. Complete instructions, you can drive the car without the module in. About three day turn around time. It took me about 1/2 hour to remove and re install

Hi, I took my car for a smog test and the system wasn't able to read my car. I have the original Tape but my ABS is busted. So, after googling I realize that this might be why the system can't read my car. Dealer wants 900$ which I am not willing to pay. I wanna fix it myself and get rid of the car asap. I looked up the website modulemaster that you mentioned and wanna give it a try. Is it as simple as plug and play? Do I have to replace any more parts? Do I have to do any more configuration after I replace the ABS? Please help...

I found the part for 250.00 brand new delivered. I decided that paying 800.00 from dealership would be worth it to be knowing also that its under warranty. I have been through hell with this ABS Computer Module. I plan on selling the car within the next 6 months. I wouldn't want anyone else to go through what I did. I would rather them be safe and fully covered just in case. I hope it lasts.

Hi! I was wondering where you bought the new ABS module? Online? I too have a 2000 V-6 Passat and the ABS malfunctioned about a year ago (I get the blinking Brake and ABS lights). I have been driving it since the regular brakes work fine. I'm thinking of selling it this year, and I'd like to get rid of that annoying beeping and blinking lights. Thanks for your help.
