Fast Friday is our weekly performance column written by famous Volvo tuner Robert "Lucky" Arnold! Yea!
Hi, I have a 1994 850 Turbo with ~170K miles and a lit ABS light. I found this site and, using the very helpful repair database, I pulled the codes from under the hood. From A3 I get DTC 443 "Pump Motor Electrical or Mechanical Fault".
Searching around a little more, it looks like the ABS module in pre- '96 cars rarely fails. But, my understanding is the hydraulic ABS pump has been known to leak in '93-'94's. Is there anything else I should check or test before replacing the pump/motor assembly? I don't see any obvious leaks, and the wiring between the ABS control module and pump/motor seemed to look OK (no visible deterioration of sheathing, or loose wires).
At ~$1,000, a new pump/motor assembly isn't really an option for me. Is it worth trying a used unit? Any tips or instructions for the replacement, is this a manageable DIY repair?
Keep in mind this is the international forum with native and non-native English speakers, you like it or not
