ABS pump fix ?

Fault light has been off and on a few times. GS911 says no power to pump. Has anyone done the pump job, how long did it take you and did you post pictures. Is it just a matter of bleeding the brakes after or is there a "trick" The dealer wants to charge me 5 hours labor, that sounds like horseshit .Thanks

Have a Great Ride, Lenbo

Do a search. If that's the fault it's not a simple bleed job. The short of it is: your brushes in the motor are stuck and not making contact, thus, no power. Send it to Module Master. (search again)...

I have. Very simple, no tricks, reconnect the 4 metal tubes and bleed the brakes like normal. You will see when the air bubbles are pushed out.

did mine today due to the last time i did it the brushes did not free up too well so problem resurfaced so this time i removed the whole pump rather than struggle getting the motor fixed back in place. a small amount of fiddling and managed to remove the problem brush and trim it very slightly to allow it free movement.reinstalling it all and bleeding brakes was very easy no dramas at all normal bleed senario nothing difficult.

A standard brake bleed is fine for routine maintenance, but if you disconnect the lines from the ABS module then a proper bleed will require a dealer scan tool or a GS911 to cycle the valves in the ABS system during the bleeding process. When you do this you will release a lot of trapped air from inside the ABS module so yes, it is necessary.
