Have you noticed the ABS light in your auto constantly illuminated even long after you have cranked your vehicle? This is an indication of problem in your car's anti lock braking system. The ABS light should only blink once you turn the key in the ignition, and then turn off after a while. If it remains on, then that's an indication that the ABS is not working well. You might need to get an ABS repair kit. Before doing so, however, check first whether the sensors are working well. Sometimes, one of the sensors gets too dirty and fails. If the sensors are doing well, the problem may have to do with the module or the entire ABS unit. Depending on the damage, you can decide to rebuild the unit or to replace just the damaged part. Just be sure you don't ignore the problem because damage on the ABS unit often results in problems among other components-such as the cruise control, dynamic stability control, speedometer, and many others. Get a new ABS repair kit as soon as you find you need one to restore your car's ABS.Some drivers venture into the roads with a malfunctioning ABS, and this is possible-although never advisable because it risks your driving safety. Yes, you can survive driving without an ABS unit functioning properly when you drive during a nice day in a nice road without having to deal with any challenging condition. But, when you drive in a rainy or snowy weather, for instance, the absence of an ABS can spell the difference between life and death.

How to Replace an ABS Module Using an ABS Repair Kit
Most cars nowadays are equipped with anti-lock braking systems (ABS) to prevent the wheels from getting stuck in times of hard braking. Moreover, as an automobile safety feature, the ABS prevents cars from suddenly sliding on slippery roads. However, due to wear and tear, its modulator-the ABS module-gets damaged. Once this module breaks, the ABS won't work, so you may get into an accident. Luckily, car parts manufacturers make ABS repair kits nowadays, so it's possible for you to repair the ABS module at home. If you already have this kit, this guide will teach you how you can use it for a hassle-free DIY replacement project.
Difficulty level: Difficult
What you'll need:
- ABS repair kit
- Torx screwdriver
- Floor jack
- Jack stands
- Lug wrench
- Drain pan
- Nut driver
Step 1: With the lug wrench, untighten the lug nuts of your vehicle's tire at the front driver side.
Step 2: Lift your car using the floor jack. Don't forget to put the jack stands near the floor jack so that the car's weight is equally distributed and supported.
Step 3: Detach the tire from its hub by removing the lug nuts completely.
Step 4: Locate the plastic fender lines. Usually these can be found inside the wheel well. Once you found the lines, uninstall them by removing the Torx screws with the Torx screwdriver. Doing this will give you access to the windshield washer bottle.
Step 5: With the nut driver, loosen the bolts of the windshield washer bottle. Then, drain it by disconnecting its rubber hose. Don't forget to place the drain pan underneath to keep your workplace clean.
Step 6: Once the bottle is drained, you can now find the damaged ABS module. This can be found at the back of the washer bottle.
Step 7: After locating the module, disconnect its wiring harness by hand. Make sure that the power pump wire is also detached.
Step 8: Remove the six Torx screws that are holding the module in place. Once these are removed, carefully pull the module free.
Step 9: Put the new ABS module in. This module is included in your ABS repair kit. Then, secure it with the Torx screws you removed a while ago.
Step 10: Reconnect the power pump wire and wiring harness. Once these parts are connected properly, replace the windshield water bottle's rubber hose.
Step 11: Reinstall the washer bottle's nuts and the fender lines. Then, put the tire back in place. Don't forget to tighten the lug nuts properly.
Step 12: Lower your car to the ground. Afterwards, refill the windshield washer.
