Hi All - I have been lurking on this forum for about a week or so and decided to join. Good info and I never realized what a big community there is for these vehicles. I actually stumbled on this forum searching for the "ABS Light" problem that popped up early last week and was impressed with the wealth of information. "Vanna White" is my 2003 Safari, bought off the dealers lot and my steadfast friend ever since. She lives in Central Florida and is my main travel vehicle as well as a business van. When the light came on I took it to my mechanic and got the "$2000" to fix news - are you serious??? I also took it to the stealership just to confirm the code and sure enough, ABS module and valve assembly. $2100 from them. SO, I got on the internet to sort this out and did send the module for "repair" (only $71.00) and bought the valve assembly off Amazon for $300.00 That part may not have been bad but I decided me and my family are worth the extra $$$ and just got it all fixed this morning. All done for $581.00. Needless to say, I'm happy and feel safe in Vanna once again.

Sorry for the long rant - looking forward to interacting with the community and thanks!! Nadine

Welcome to the site. Either you have a very rare van, or you made a mistake filling out your extra information. It says FWD. Welcome again.
