the abs light comes on intermitently. it will come on, beep 3 times, and then flash for a while. it will stay on for some time, and then turn off. this problem has no relationship to when i'm moving or stopped. the abs light may turn on or off an an time. and when i try to connect with the handheld diagnositc system, it fails to connect and give an error code. occasionally we have gotten some obsure error messages about a dash connector failure, but ususly we cannot connect with the handheld unit, or pc. i've been told that the brake should still work, but that the back breaks may lockup.*ak

abs failure: bosch 5.3 abs module found in vw, audi & porsche fail within the first 60k miles. abs modules typically last for well over 100k & generally for the life of a car. audi charges ~$1300 to replace. 3rd party repair is ~$300. abs becomes disabled & can create unexpected situations especially during inclimate weather. replacement or repair of the module resolves the issue & abs functions as expected.*ak

2000 audi s4 abs computer module is defective. code 01203. the abs and brake light flash and beep all of the time for no reason. this is a known issue with the abs units. aoa has not filled a safety recall for htis item yet. we need to have a safety recall for the abs computer/module due to potential accidents when wheels lock up and car skids out of control. numerous other complaints about abs problems and accidents have been documented due to abs failure. it is a simple fix but part costs $1k alone not including labor. looked on forums, it seems to be a simple wiring fix inside of module (apparently there is a poor standard of craftsmanship in the soldering). *ak

abs computer module failure. on the instrument panel, the abs light came on whle the brake light was flashing and beeping. took it ot the dealer and the abs pump with controller was/is bad. the part with labor is $1600.00. after some research, this part goes bad alot and is a major safty issue. if you brake hard the rear wheels will lock up and the car could spin out of control.

abs warning light on dash, accompanied with a flashing brake warning and three beeps. this occurred intermittently and with increasing frequency. based on some invcestigationg, this appears to be a very common problem with the abs controller modules on volkswagen and audi vehicles. when the module fails, it renders the abs system inoperative and can lead to rear wheel lockup in emergency stopping manouvers or in slippery road conditions. i have removed the module and had it repaired. this service at an audi dealer would cost in excess of $1000.

i was going down the street and my abs light and brake light came on and beeped 3 times. i got over as soon as i could to make an appointment to go to audi. i went up there and they said that they have never seen that code before so they just erased the code. i left and was going about 10mph and lightly put my brakes on and my front brakes locked up, i came to a screeching halt. i immediately went back to audi and they said that my abs module is not working. imagine if i was on the highway and my brakes locked up. this product should be recalled. since this is a safety product can you replace the part. it seems like every time i go to audi just for an oil change that i never leave without spending more money, because they find things that are wrong. i have talked to other audi owners and they say that they probably sabotage our cars just so they can make more money. as i just went in for a oil change and they said that my secondary water pump was not working. there was no cel (check engine light) i would imagine that it would come on if that failed. i hope that this abs control module does not happen to anyone on the highway due to this non working safety part. the part number is: 8eo 614 111e or 8eo 614 111a since i could not find audi under manufacturer but i have a 2000 audi s4. thank you and have a great day. *tr

abs/brake light started flashing infrequently and i called maplewood audi service and they proceeding to tell me it was a brake light switch, through further investigation i found that this is a very common problem with their abs control module and it is a "factory only" fix because of reprogramming and such and it would run about $2000. i belong to a couple of audi forums and this is one of the most common problems. i don't see how this proprietary system is allowed to continue without accountability by the manufacturer and or dealerships. unlike their other poor practices for monopolizing service to these cars this one affects braking and thus safety. *tr
