ABS control unit fried

Hey everyone,

I've got a bit of a problem. When the car gets up to operating temp for long enough for the heat to soak through to the ABS unit, the unit konks out and I get ABS and MSP lights on the dash.

Having worked through all electrical supply issues such as battery and alternator charging I'm left with the ABS unit itself not liking getting warm. I've tested this by opening the bonnet and gently hosing down the controller and it'll be fine for a little while.

The long and the short of it is I'm pretty sure I need a replacement ABS ECU as I'm not confident the 'refurbishers' for the bosch unit will know how to fix this problem.

Does anyone have one to suit a Gransport?

There are a bunch of them on eBay. Youíll want to match the part number on the module to yours.

Hereís an example.
