Ok, I've "Searched" and read almost everything concerning this but no luck with a fix, yet. 52,500 miles. 3 days ago I almost couldn't bring her to a stop, and the failure light was blinking. Happened 3 times that day. It appears that after a number of braking cycles it starts to cycle pump on-off-on-off. The 'failure ' light will blink fast and the '!' will be on. When the brake is released the '!' goes off but the 'failure' continues but at the 1 per second pace. It also likes to fail if I manually back up.
The fluid did not appear low but I have since added to and then over-filled the rear and the two ABS reservoirs('05). No luck. I have removed and cleaned the front and rear sensors. No luck. I hope to have the fault codes read tomorrow.
Is there anything else I can try that might clear a simple problem if it isn't the ABS gone bad? I read somewhere about a reset of the ABS.
