Abs Controller Repair

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 S70 Turbo with ~100K miles on it and last month the ABS, TRACS & Brake lights started coming on and sometimes my speedometer & control panel failed. After searching the web, I found out that this was most likely caused by the ABS Controller failing. Searching the web a bit more, I found out that Victor Rocha could repair this for ~$150, MUCH LESS than the local Volvo dealership.

Victor's website explicitly showed how to remove the ABS Controller and once he received it via mail, he had the repaired & upgraded unit back to me within 4 days. The unit came with instructions on how to reinstall it and how to reset the Check Engine light FREE via AutoZone versus having to take it in to a repair shop.

OUTSTANDING SERVICE!

Victor can be reached at his website - http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/Volvo_...lvo_V70_ABS.htm - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Try www.bba-reman.

Need Torx E5 socket to remove it:

http://www.modulemaster.com/volvoabsremoval.html

There are many advertising the fix for this (Rocha, Module Master, BBA, ebay etc and etc.) but I strongly recommend BBA for the following reasons:

- They are authorized BOSCH repair facility in the US

- The rebuilt ABS Module is warrantied for life.

- I replaced mine and a friend's ABS Module with units from BBA, so far so good.

- BBA is INEXPENSIVE....2 options:

a. Remove your own unit, send it in for repair, they will ship it back, you install it.

Cost: $69.00 ABS Module + $20.00 shipping.

Pro: You save $30.00 (see below)

Con: you will be driving WITHOUT ABS Module, liability issue: NO ABS, No Speedometer.

b. Get a mirror and read off your existing ABS Module Part Number, Call BBA for a rebuilt Unit, they send you a rebuilt Unit, you ship them your defective Unit.

Cost: $99.00 ABS Module + $20.00 shipping.

Pro/Con: Opposite of the above.

I would personally prefer, if you decide to spout off, that you should register? Victor is a registered member?

I have used BBA and yes they are good(for Saab stuff) I personally prefer Victor for my Volvo modules. If you take note he spends time here doing Q&A . I don't see BBA doing it here?
