Volkswagen (VW) Passat ABS Pump Problems
The Volkswagen (VW) Passat came fitted with many different types of ABS pumps, from ATE modules to Bosch and TRW modules. This particular TRW ABS / ESP Pump module has been found fitted to some variants of the Volkswagen (VW) Passat in models from 2006 – 2007.
This type of ABS / ESP Pump ECU is a common failing part and can fail with many symptoms including loss of communication and speedo not working. Below are some of the most common symptoms associated with a failed ABS ECU Controller.
Common Volkswagen (VW) Passat ABS Module Faults:
- ABS Light On
- Traction Light On
- Handbrake Light On
- Steering Light On
- Speedo Not Working
- Wheel Speed Sensor Faults
- No Communication via OBD
- Pressure Sensor Faults
- Brakes Juddering
Most common found part number on this type of unit is 3C0 614 109 ABEF which supersedes the earlier unit with part number 3C0 614 517 SBEF. When this unit has failed, most dealers and workshops are not aware that it can be repaired and would normally suggest a replacement part which will be much more expensive.
A new replacement ABS / ESP pump module comes with a limited 12 month warranty, is very expensive and will require programming to the vehicle. Used second-hand parts are generally quite cheap but are not advised because they come with a very limited 30-90 day warranty, will require re-programming at an additional cost and there’s no way of knowing how much life the unit will have left or how well it’s been maintained.
