So instead of going through the hassle of replacing the pump I should further diagnose by testing the resistance to the pump through the pigtail? There is no logical reason that the pump itself could cause those codes? I may just send my old module out to be rebuild, as the salvage yard sourced unit has some damage around the pins, as if they pried the connector off with a screwdriver. There is absolutely no damage to the pins though.
Problems are now fixed! Thanks for the help and advice. I finally sourced a second replacement ebtcm from a different local salvage yard than the first replacement. It was $65 for the second one. So I guess it wasn't too horrible of a job, and not too expensive either. I am happy I did not have to replace the pump like I thought I was going to have to do. And by doing it myself I avoided giving the stealership $2500 of my hard earned money, and yes they quoted me 2500 to do the job.
Yes $2500 is the expected price.
The part alone is ~$1700 BPMV and ~$500 EBTCM (module).
You don't need the BPMV, all you need is the EBTCM but I guess is easier to replace everything (or better yet they don't know better).
The EBTCM replacement (full assembly) is about 2h (my experience).
I guess they charge 3h to be on the safe side.
Some time ago with mtflight's help I scored a brand new BPMV for less than $100. Rural Georgia sometimes is awesome.
Where would be a good place to start looking for a replacement ebtcm?
LKQ used parts is a good place to start they will ship it to your door. The ECBM is two things that are really one. The pump and ECBM can be seperated but I would not do it. The ECBM is valving internal to the modual and the pump is mounted to the side of it. You should replace the whole thing as one unit. New they are over 1000 bucks if they are still made.... I bought mine from a guy on this site and changed it myself for 100 bucks and I have put over 50K miles on it so far. Once you get it back installed just bleed the breaks off normally from each caliper worked fine for me.
It is on the drivers side next to and under the air filter assembly. Remove the air filter assembly and you cant miss it, it has break lines and a 25 pin or so ambilical cord attached to it.
