My ABS system isn't working (ABS light on in dash).. mechanic suggests it might need new ABS control valve assembly, very expensive. But, I've also read a faulty pump relay can disable the system & cause the ABS light to stay on. Which is the pump relay? The one the dealer calls "cycle relay" or "main relay".. and the part number.. ? Many thanks

Are you sure the ABS isn't working? The light can come on if there is a simple (and common ) sensor problem in the seat belt recepticle. I think there are both DIY's and info on this problem if you do a search. Good Luck

Also, do you know how to check if your ABS is working? I've just gone to dirt road/loose gravel area and then jammed brakes on at 20-30mph, and if you get the pulsating upon loss of traction, then your ABS works. :P
