Is there an alternative to replacing the ABS module?

Asked by Nov 21, 2015 at 12:55 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet SSR 2 Dr LS Convertible Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2005 Chevy SSR.  Three times in the past week the ABS warning
light has come on, but then it goes off for a couple of days.  I took it to a
dealer for a diagnostic.  They said it was "likely"  the ABS module needs to
be replaced at the cost of $800.  "Likely" it not as good as "absolutely"!!  I
don't want to spend $800 and find out there's another problem.  The check
code was C0265 which I think is "unknown". I've read it could be a wiring
issue.  Any ideas of what I should do?  I can't work on the car myself.

You could take it to an independent shop which might charge you less. It is also possible that individual sensors are going bad. That part is expensive BTW ---- http://www.buyautoparts.com/autoparts/Chevrolet/SSR/ABS_Control _Module.html

EBCM upper half of ABS has low temp solder from Factory. Catalytic Converter runs at 1800 degrees, melts low temp solder and lifts from pin. Needs to be re-soldered. Instruction on Tech Discussions, SSR Fanatic.com New ABS will do same thing. Dicktator
