Audi TT Quattro ABS Controller Module Pump Repairs
The Audi TT is fitted with (most commonly) a BOSCH ABS pump & controller, also known as ECU or Module. We’ve found that the most common faults with these is no communication and fault codes such as P1649 which relates to data bus / data link communication errrors from the ABS control module. So far on these units we’ve repaired the following faults:

  • No Communication
  • Data Bus / Data Link Errors (P1649)
  • ABS Light On Dash
  • Juddering When Braking

The last few we’ve seen had the common P1649 fault which is also a fault code shared with VW’s and refers to the same problem (Implausible Signal From ABS Control Module). Audi’s & VW’s are very well known now for their weak ABS pumps & control modules so it’s not uncommon if you’ve got an Audi and your ABS light is on, get it checked out by an auto-electrician and if it does turn out to be a faulty ABS unit then call us with the part numbers. We could possibly have one sitting on the shelf ready to exchange or repair your own unit. All our products & services are fully backed by our 1Yrs warranty.

When your ABS unit fails or you can see the ABS light lit up on your dash board, you should take caution when driving because this means the ABS pump will not pump the brakes. In some cases it will not effect normal driving, but we have seen on many new vehicles with ABS & Traction Control in one that the vehicle becomes somewhat unstable when the module is not working. Also, you must remember that if the ABS pump is not pumping, then the brakes efficiency will be greatly effected under heavy braking. It is advised that you should only drive the vehicle if you really have to when the ABS light or Traction light is on to be absolutely safe. If you’re unsure, call us for more information on 0871 2887 666.

Audi TT Quattro ABS Pump Repairs P1649

We are repairing ABS pumps & ecu’s on a daily basis so if you think yours has failed, or your not sure then give us a call with your part numbers and we’ll tell you how much it will cost and the turn around time. As a general guideline we aim to repair all units within 48-72 hours, however, this may vary and we will always notify you of any changes.

If you do decide to send your unit in to us, we do ask that you keep the module attached to the pump and send both parts into us so that we can do a complete test on both the pump & module at the same time. There is no extra charge for this service.

  • Hi, have the Stabilty Warning light on intermittantly, (Mk 1 V6 Manual TT Conv – 05) Dealer non committal but mentionjed ABS, ABS light NOT on however. All other checks OK. Only seems to occur when really hot in traffic, fan OK, engine cooling and A/C all OK. Temp shows normal. Any ideas welcome, currently booked into specialist later this week for an investigate prior to planned trip to Italy next week.

    Many thanks, John

    • Hi John,

      Yeah it could be linked to the ABS Controller as it does operate the traction / stability control as well. We do repair these units, we’re currently taking in 3-4 of these Audi TT ones every week so they’re fairly common. If you need a quote, please call us on 0871 2887 666 or email us with your contact number and we’ll get someone in our team to give you a call back.

      Thanks for your enquiry.

  • Hello, I have a Audi TT 225 BHP Quattro year 2000 with ESP etc. My ABS light is on constant also my ESP light is on constant. After looking at your site I decided to strip out my air box etc to get some numbers off my control module/pump etc VW DEC TA 10.0204-0228.4 06540812507002 RE 0532 01324329? (Battery Disconnected) While I had access to the pump I decided to remove the main connector block from the module to check the connections etc (by dropping the module off the 3 mounting bolts) they looked ok so I reconnected the block connection and bolts and put it all back together. now I have no central display working on dash (OK etc) no fuel/ temp guages working I guess no ignition feed to dash? The car fires up when you are cranking the starter but cuts out in ignition on position? what have I done? I need it to run to fix ABS/ESP fault please can you help Thanks Nic

    • Hi Nic,

      The modules do all handshake together, however, having the ABS pump disconnected will not stop the vehicle from starting or staying started. It would at most bring up the ABS light(s) and fault code "no communication" because there is nothing on the end of the loom. I would go over everything that was touched and anything in the surrounding areas to see if it could be something you knocked. Check fuses & relays. Did you at any point connect the battery terminals the wrong way round?

      Thanks for reading.

  • Hi I have a 2004 audi tt 225 where engine management light is constantly on. error code says implausible speed signal. is this related to the abs module. I have no other warning lights on.

    • Hi Jon

      May not be ABS pump related, it could just be one of the speed sensors has failed. The fault code will generally relate to which sensor has failed and on that vehicle you should be able to find replacement sensors fairly easily from a local parts place.

      Kindest Regards

  • Hi, I have a 51 plate Audi tt 225 Quattro with the Bam engine. The ESP light is lit on dash (not abs light) I have scanned the car and it is coming up with an abs fault code 00812 – brake pressure release solenoid/sensor. The code is constant and will not reset. Is this an abs pump fault?
    Many thanks Liam

    • Hi Liam

      Yes, you can send the pump in for repair. To get a quote please call us on 0844 847 9999 or alternatively please email us.

  • Hi, I have a mk 1 tt yr 2000 225 bhp , I have had a battery drain for quite some time now , driving me mad , but we have finally traced it to the abs nodule, the code reader says no communication , is this an easy fix? Is it easy to remove abs module, regards Paul

    • Hi Paul
      Thanks for the enquiry,

      Battery draining problems can be a fault with the ABS Module and it is a fault we’ve see and repaired with the Audi TT units in the past. They are fairly straight forward to remove and refit but being part of the braking system we always recommend it is fitted by a competent mechanic as they will be required to fully bleed the braking system. We’ve sent over an email to you with some prices and further information.

      Kind Regards


  • Hi, Please will you let me know costs involved for you to refurbish an ABS controller/pump from my Audi TT 1.8 coupe 180BHP year 2000? The abs light is on and juddering occurs when braking heavily and occasionally there is no power at all on the brake pedal making it difficult to stop at junctions etc.

    Kind regards,

    Carole Smith

    • Hi Carole

      Thanks for the enquiry,
