And your speedometer is not working right?? Replacing a ABS control
Module will fix that. It will need to be coded if you replace it...there is a company that
Repair the modules, you will have to take it apart and mail it is about $200-300

If i buy a used abs module what serial numbers need to match so i wont have to get it coded. Before my speedometer stopped working everything was the same. the ABS CEL(P0500) Yellow Triangle were on. Also my MPG & Mileage(Paused) stopped working. The Gas gauge goes back and forth and brakes work perfectly fine. If i disconnect the abs module for an hour will anything happen.

Thanks

No is not going to make a difference if you disconnect your battery..
If it was me having that problem and I'm keeping the car for some years
I wouldn't put a used module, cuz that is a common problem and that module
May get faulty too... And if you go for a used module the donor car
Needs to have the same options as yours..... But there is a big chance
That it will have to be recoded to yours... Hope this help you!
