ABS module interchange

ABS module interchange

Postby DentManDave [OP] » June 6th 2017, 8:24pm

I have a 2001 Safari SLE, The ABS light and brake light are on. It's off at start but comes on as soon as I start rolling. Has a code CO265 (Module) I'm wondering, since I have a 2003 Safari LT if the module is the same. The 03 has a junk motor and I'm just keeping it for parts.

I could be mistaken, but odds are you have a Kelsey Hayes 325 abs. Do you plan to repair your abs or pull the abs fuse and enjoy life?

Yeah, 2000-2005 you should be good on swapping the EBCM / ABS module.

Still might be worth re-soldering one or both since they all seem to go bad eventually.

I agree with the tip to try resoldering the board connections and clean and reseal the module and test the motor as well. I spend a great deal of my spare time watching car restoration television shows and they show the abs failures are often cured by resoldering the joints on the board that often can be found via visual inspections and cleaning and reseal according to what I saw on television. I worked to restore failed electronics for years and one of the engineers introduced me to ACF-50 that can be bought via ebay or amazon or at aircraft supply stores. Most people use WD-40 which is great for cleaning, but for corrosion prevention ACF-50 does a great job. Cheers
