ABS Pump failure - ball park costs?

Hi Guys and Gals,

Sods law occured this morning..

Car has been faultess as per normal.. Today is MOT day and as I pull off up the road the ABS light comes on (with some other associated ones).. I get to the MOT Garage which happens to be my Local Indie.. They say the ABS pump has gone... Ball park quote 1000...

Any thoughts?

Being a positive man.. the car sailed through the rest of the MOT...

Cheers

Tarbs

Garage List
On a 6 cylinder engine the full part (mechanical pump and electronic module) costs around 1,800. The mechanical unit (repair kit) is around 900.

Send the whole unit to ECU Testing and the cost will be approx 250 including testing, repair and return postage. Do not send to BBA Reman.

On a 4 pot the repair kit mentioned above is about 200.

ABS pump refurb

Yeah, go to www.ECUtesting.com and fill out the online form with the part number of the unit and they'll let you know if they can repair/refurb it. If they can, remove and send it to them and once they get it they'll turn it around in 3 days with text updates to let you know what's going on (255). I got mine back last Thurs and mechanic fitted Fri morn and so far so good. Forget BMW. Get yourself a good indie and it'll be all sorted for a fraction of the price. Thoroughly reccomended.

Guys - thank you ever so much for this.

It has turned out to be an interesting saga.

Because I am time bound this is going to be a bit squeaky.. I am certainly not paying the ridculous price that BMW want.. My Indie, who I really do see in a different light after my last two visits, doesnt want to get involved in the whole ECUTesting.com thing..

So i took the car back (MOT doesn't run out till the 28th Feb) and a mate is going to look after the car and get it to his Indie who said he will sort it all in for about 400.

Will keep you posted.

Another ABS issue yep they seem to be going down good and proper, refurb unit wise is the most cost effective way we've got 2 in progress now down side is the cars off the road for a week or so.

all 4 cylinders are cheap by comparison, the repair kits around 142.80+VAT plus fining and brake fluid and fault clearing, therefore making it look damn cheap compared with a 6 cylinder model

Instead of starting a new thread i thought I'd revive this one... So, the abs light came up on the dashboard the other day, with two other lights, the hand break light (in yellow) and can't remember the other one, I used the code reader and the codes that came up where

005DF0 - pump motor faulty
005DF1 - pump motor connector damaged

I've had a look around a few other forums, and it's seems to be a VERY common problem with the 07 year, I've seen people say it could vary from

Faulty wheel sensor
Faulty steering angle sensor
Faulty wheel bearing
Battery on the way out (low voltage)
ABS pump

I've had the car just under two months, it's under warranty with 'Warranty first' for another month, so my plan is to book it in with BMW and let them fiddle about.

What is the most likely scenario? A nackered sensor? or the worst case, the pump?

For those codes it is definitely the ABS unit. They are etched in my brain. Send the whole unit to ECU Testing after phoning them or filling out their online form.

funnily enough (well not actually that funny), mine has gone too, in at BMW today as i still have the extended warranty on my 335. They mentioned the cost would have been the unpleasant side of 1500

What mileage do these tend to fail at? Don't know why my indie was against the idea of ecutesting too when we needed a new mechatronic for my audi.

Took the car into Bmw today, but as I pulled off, the lights disappeared..decided to take it in anyway because they'll no doubt return.. BMW rang to say the lights have not come back on since they've had it, but the codes are still there, and the pump will need replacing at some point, so it's over the the warranty company to see if they give the go ahead!
Seems to be a very common fault on 07 plates!
