ABS pump failure

Recommended Posts

Being new on here I suspect that this isn't the first time this problem has been posted.

I've got a 2000 GS300SE. The ABS pump failed completely yesterday. A new one from Lexus is over £3k so not an option. Has anyone encountered the same problem and how did you get around it without paying an extortionate amount of money for a new one. 

Thanks in advance.

Do a search for ABS reconditioning for VWs, they should be able to give you an idea if it's possible and the costs. From what I remember, VW want about £1800 for a new pump, but some places can refurbish them for less than have the VW price..

I have not had this problem on the gs, but did have the problem on a Mazda 6. I was able to remove just the pump motor . I then replaced the brushes and the bearings in the motor for very little money.

An alternative to this would be a replacement from a breaker.

The ABS module failed on my wifes Honda Jazz back in 2015, basically i got a mechanic to remove the unit and sent it off to a company called ECU Testing for rebuild.

Costs were £244 inc shipping and the turn around time was about 5 days from when they have received your unit, also it comes with lifetime warranty too.

Once the refurbed unit is back the mechanic refitted and bleed the whole system and its been as good as new. 

Give them a call and see if they can help.

I'll second ECU testing, used them twice in the last year, once for a Audi Mechatronic unit and then for a Rav4 engine/gearbox ECU, both fixed quick with no drama for a few hundred quid...:thumbsup:

I used to break the odd gs300 a few years ago and abs pumps were a hot seller. As said, best to get the ecu tested on it and if its gone, maybe get a used pump with the ecu thats known to work (hard task but not impossible) as a cheaper option but the pump failure thing is fairly common. 

 

I'm guessing a simple pulling of a fuse for a while wouldn't somehow reset anything? I've never tried so I'm guessing not. Anyone else tried some sort of reset?
