Took my 2002 escape to dealership due to abs recall. Dealership replace the required part and while driving home the abs dash light came on and stayed on. Took car back and dealership now says that I have a abs control module problem and needs replacing. Estimated cost for module and possible HCU is around $2000.00. This sounds too coincidential. I don't need the abs and just want the dash light to go out. How is this done?
I took my 2002 ford escape to the dealership for the abs recall service. I was not having any problems prior. They replaced the harness as specified in the recall. Supposedly nothing else. After leaving the dealership the abs light on the dash came on and stayed on. Took it back and now they are telling me that the module and/or the HCU may need replacing as well, Total estimate $2000. I checked and found that the 60 amp and 25 amp fuses are missing. Under the cover of the box where the fuses are identified for location had black dots where the abs fuses were supposed to be. Are the fuses not required? Nothing in the owners manual. I don't need the abs and just want to turn off the abs dash light. What's the easiest way to do this? Thanks
Not sure on the fuses, but you might want to have an independent mechanic look it over for you to determine if the dealership is correct. Even if you have to replace the module, they can do the work for much less. My guess is those fuses probably should be there and the dealership never replaced them when they did the work. Good luck!
