2011 Malibu LT 2.4L

Are there any difficulties on replacing an ABS module? Any special tools needed? According to a diagnostic datasheet, it’s bad. No communication. Power and ground verified. Brake, ABS, and traction lights are all on. Quoted $567 to replace.

Looked it up on Alldata, 4 bolts hold it on and 1 hour labor. list price on the module 20908753
254.44

Sounds like a high price to me. Amazon has the AC delco part for 147.00

Thanks junkman104!

After reading the dealer diagnostics sheet, it states a body control module is bad. Do those require programming? Seems it’s located in the passenger kick panel. Without communication, we can’t determine if an ABS sensor is bad. The car has 120k miles. Research indicates the rear hub ring falls apart or debri/corrosion builds up.

Not sure what module you are referring to, the Body control module shows to be in the center of the dash. The BCM if replaced would have to have the Vin# programed.

I guess different years have different locations. We'll tell the owner to have the dealer replace it. If afterwards the ABS light is still on, maybe it will tell us if an ABS sensor is bad. Quote was $560 for replacement, programming, and installation.

Thanks for all the info junkman104

Yes, let me see if I can get a copy. The main non abs code was an O2 sensor. I cleared the codes and it came back fast. I replaced the sensor and deleted the code. After replacement, the O2 code stayed off even after running the engine for a while. A thermostat was also replaced.
