PUMP CIRCUIT FAILURE
When Monitored: Ignition on. The CAB commands the pump on at 20 km/h (12 mph) to
check its operation, if the brake switch is not applied. If the brake is applied, the test will
run at 40 km/h (25 mph). The CAB monitors pump voltage every 7 milliseconds.
Set Condition: The DTC is stored when the CAB detects: 1) Improper voltage decay after
the pump was turned off. 2) Pump not energized by the CAB, but voltage is present for 3.5
seconds. 3) Pump is turned on by the CAB, but without sufficient voltage to operate it.


I've seen the harness rub through and get corroded down by the hydraulic unit bracket.

Check wiring loom, especially on all the connectors from Fuse Box to ABS unit. Most of the time is one of the connectors corroded off.
If nothing found visually, you HAVE to check for power and ground at the ABS pump before u condemn the ABS unit.
75% of the time this is a Wiring problem instead of the ABS unit failure. Mainly pay attention under the Fuse box.
The wiring loom runs under the Battery, and you have to remove the battery and battery tray to gain access to check the ABS unit. I recommend you to remove battery, put it aside, and use a remote jump cable to power vehicle for testing.

Of course, check for blown/missing fuse.

if nothing visual found, you HAVE to run the diagnostic tree for the code. The Pump cost $400 + 3 hrs of labors.
When Monitored and Set Condition:
