#1 of 2 99 Grad AM SE ABS Rear Brake Module
Jul 03, 2009 (12:01 pm)
Occasionally my ABS and brake light would come on and would go on just after starting the car. They would go out after stopping and starting the car. Now they stay on constantly. The cheap $100 Walmart code scanners didn't help, but the local shop found that it's the rear ABS brake module. They sent me to a dealer to have it taken care of. I'm wondering where this module is located on my car? Can anyone help with that? I'd like to replace it myself and see if this takes care of the problem. Thanks.
#2 of 2 ABS Module 2006 Honda civic coupe

I purchased a 2006 Honda Civic Coupe from a private party in July of 2009, the car had 25,000 miles and was in excellent condition, (personally knew the previous original owner). In September approx 6 weeks of the 3 yr warrenty expiring the battery went dead, after receiving a hot shot I immediately took it to Sears to have the battery replaced - after that the ABS break light would not go off - I took it to Honda (Heritage Honda in Parkville MD) and they told me that Sears disconnected the battery prior to turning off the engine and that caused the ABS Module to blow - and it would cost approx $1k to replace the ABS Module.
I have never had issues with Sears auto service which was obtained many time for my 1999 Honda civic sedan, I sought the advice of 3 different 3rd party mechanics and all agreed with 100% certainty that the Sears mechanic would not disconnect the battery prior to turning the engine off b/c it would not be worth the harm it could cause to the mechanic -
I have written to BBB and to Honda America - BBB says the car is too old for them to get involved, Honda America says it is Sears' fault and that is that -
Has anyone out there had simular issues -
