How Much Does a Used ABS Module Cost?
When it comes the time to purchase a replacement ABS control module, it can be stressful to wade through the options and make a good decision. However, choosing poorly could cost hundreds of dollars in unnecessary spending - or even worse - put you back in a similar situation later with a low quality replacement. Here are some tips for ABS purchase consideration, and also what it might cost you.
Considerations When Purchasing an ABS Control Module
Typically a used ABS Control Module is sold as an assembly, which means it includes the ABS Module, as well as the ABS Pump (sometimes referred to as the hydraulic unit). When purchasing a used ABS assembly, it is important to consider the source from which you are buying. The company or store should be a reputable supplier that stands by their product, accepts returns, and offers a warranty. We recommend checking a store’s reviews and policies prior to purchasing. Here are some questions you may want to consider about:
1) How long is the return period?
2) Am I responsible for paying the return shipping?
3) How long is the warranty, and what is the warranty process?
4) Does this company have reviews from verified buyers?
5) Is there a real person that can answer questions?
6) Are the parts quality checked?
If you are satisfied with these answers, then you may have a good resource. CarPartSource is one such outlet with a long history of ABS control module sales, stringent testing, customer support, and a satisfaction guarantee.
How Much Should a Used ABS Assembly Cost to Buy?
A Used ABS Assembly with a year warranty that has been run & tested (on the original vehicle) costs around $200. This price can vary depending on age and rarity of the part. But either way, the price is about 1/5 - or 20% - the cost of a new ABS (or Anti-lock Brake Part Assembly). You can find some used ABS Assemblies for a little cheaper, but beware that they are often pulled off the vehicle without being tested, and likely will not come with a year warranty, 30 day return policy, or free shipping. You’ll also often find their customer service is minimal.
Here is why buying used, tested parts makes sense. For example, CarPartSource customers have saved approximately $15 million in the last 5 years on ABS Assembly replacements alone. When you are purchasing a used part from a reputable company that does their due diligence on testing their parts while still on the vehicle, you are much more likely to get a properly functioning part in good condition - and can last you years or even decades! On the rare occasion that you find yourself with a used defective unit even if it has been tested – choose a company with reliable customer service, an accommodating and fair return policy and warranty! Check the company’s reviews from verified buyers.
How Much Money is a New ABS Module?
A new ABS can cost between $500 and $2,000 - but most average about $1,000. Sure, some people can afford to shell out $1,000 on a minor repair for their vehicle, but not all can or wish to do so. Purchasing used / recycled parts is also better for the environment. Additionally, many parts (especially for older vehicles) have been discontinued and can only be found used. In this case, our recommendation to you is find a tried and trusted used part seller with adequate policies and exceptional customer service.
