These are repairable, unlike those Bosch modules installed in BMWs and
Diagnosis is FOC. For repair of module, cost is only RM400. The module
will be taken out and the customer would usually be asked to drive the
car home, unless they choose to leave it. Normal hydraulic brake will
work as usual - brake lines are not disturbed. Speedometer will stop
working so speed has to be observed with estimation. Generally takes 4-5
hours to repair module. When done, module will be reinstalled and car is
I also service Volvo ABS modules, with a large base of mechanics and part
dealers giving me the support, including the "big boys". Customers even
drive in from Penang and Johor to have their ABS systems fixed.
Provided the ICs and other chips inside the module do not fail, a module
that has been serviced is expected to last a few years, nominally 5 years
but most often longer than the life of a new replacement module. I do not
normally state warranty period as I have to safeguard my own interest.
This is because it is possible that subsequent to module repair, the car
is subjected to abuse or other act of God such as flood, engine wash,
lightning, short circuit (due to installation of aftermarket gadgets),
hard impact and etc. However, I do offer re-work for a module that fails
within 3 months under normal use provided other associated components in
the car are standard and not modified subsequent to module repair. This
covers stricly a fault on my part which I can tell the moment I look
inside the module.
In the past, there were customers who heavily modify their brakes (to
match souped up power) such as installation of aftermarket slotted and
bigger brake discs. When this is done, the position of the wheel sensors
may no longer align with the pulse wheel or resulting too big a gap. This
distorts the sensor signals and hence the ABS fails and when the cars
were sent in to me for a diagnosis, the owner even told me the module was
replaced or repaired before but no mechanic could determine the problem.
The answer is simple - the brake system is no longer standard. The
sensors will have to be relocated to bring back their function and this
is not easily done. Nevertheless, change of bigger rims and tyres usually
will not affect sensor signals.
ABS is a very useful system. It is capable of preventing an accident.
Cars with a failed system or without a system will not be able to steer
away from an obstacle under severe braking. The same applies for applying
brakes while taking a corner at on a wet or sandy curve. With a working
system, you can still maintain control of the direction as the wheels
dont lock up.
Put the safety feature back in your car, have the ABS fixed, call to make

Is it possible to retrofit ABS on a Waja?
How much does it cost?
Posted 18 September 2007 - 12:05 PM
However, considering the cost of parts and labour, it is considered a
massive project. Brake lines will have to change. Connectivity to the ECU
is another question.

Apologies, can you elaborate the shortform EBD and BA? I service many
makes and dont take notice of all short forms. Does your question relate
to a Waja with ABS problem or retrofitting ABS in a Waja without ABS
