ABS Module Reprogram for Non-DSC

Is this available? Has anyone every replaces the non-dsc ABS modules and had the dealer reprogram them? Dealer told me they only come preprogrammed and have to buy a new unit and I canít reprogram a used abs module like you can on DSC models. Let me know if you have. Hate to spend $1k+ for one.

ABS modules all have the same As-Built data. You can replace ABS to ABS without reprogramming AFAIK. The more complex issue is replacing ABS with DSC or DSC with DSC.

Thatís what I just recently figured out. Still getting a list of communication from the used module I bought from LKQ. Iím assuming itís bad but I gotta dig further. It fixed my eps, brake lights though and I can actually get a speedometer reading.

Interesting. This is not the first time I hear there's a problem with USDM ABS or DSC units replacing. European 8s seem to be less complicated in communication between ECU and ABS/DSC
Ok, try to clear and reread DTC errors and post them here.

Itís weird, but may be a loose connection. The loss of communication dtc hasnít came back since I erased it the second time. I do have a failing speed sensor on the right front that I plan to fix soon, but other than that itís been working fine since.
