ABS pump won't stop pumping!
First time poster looking for advice.
1998 Durango 5.2 4x4
Started her up this morning, started to drive off and I noticed an annoying squeal that I had never heard before. 'ABS' and 'Brake' console lights were on so I turned around and parked. Opened the hood, with the engine still running, and traced the noise to the ABS control unit/pump area.
I then turned off the vehicle but the pump continued to pump. I had to disconnect the control unit to get it to stop.
I have a feeling that the ABS control unit is probably in need of replacement. Would this be a logical assumption? Also, I read on another forum that these can cost in excess of $800...is this accurate??? Would it be possible to find a used replacement unit, from a salvage yard or wherever, and change it out myself?
Also, any idea if I could safely drive with the ABS control module unplugged?
Any and all advice is appreciated.
