Been really busy lately so I haven't had a chance to check the ABS sensors for the ABS + handbrake light coming on randomly when driving the cat, it's going into Ford's today to have a proper diagnosis but if they come back to me and say "you need a new ABS module/pump" (which going by some recently Google searches costs about 1k) is there any places in the UK that can simply repair them?

There's some place in America that does this for about $100, as far as I can see ABS modules seem to suffer dry solder joints etc. in hot engine bays over time. so it seems silly to spend shitloads of money on a new module when I could just pay someone to resolder/reball it all properly.

I know a place that offers this service for computer motherboards/games consoles and that, but not sure if they work on car electronics too...

Just had a call from Ford...

They said they can't communicate with the ABS module so they reckon (after checking all the wiring/sensors/relays) that it's the module that's goosed.

If I want them to replace it, they charge 1800 + VAT just for the part

I found this place online - http://www.ecutesting.com/abs_pumps_modules.html - just phoned them and they said they can repair mine for about 250 tops (I have to get the part number off it to get an exact price) - much happier with that price!

Steve I can't tell as it's squashed in between a V6 engine, won't be able to tell until I get someone to remove it off the car for me.
