I recently had the dreaded ABS/VDC Malfunction warning come up on my 2011 at a track day. I did the standard check of brake fluid and battery/chassis ground before doing a scan with EcuTek and getting the C1111 code. After a failed pump recalibration and some time searching thru the forums I decided to take the hit and order a new 2015+ ABS module to replace mine. Before replacing my pump I did a quick search for a DIY and didn't immediately come up with anything so I figured I would put together a video in case anyone wants to see what is involved before diving in themselves.

 

A couple of quick notes:

  • This is not a difficult swap, if you know how to bleed brakes you are more than capable of doing this yourself
  • This was my first attempt at a How-To video so some of the camera angles weren't great and I realize now that I say "um" too much, so apologies in advance

 

Here's the video:

 

 

Hope it helps someone.

Might have to replace mine in my 09 with 15K. Tried to shut off the code with my cobb last night and didn't work. Any other suggestions?

For your bank account's sake I hope you never need to look at the video again. It was at least easy to do.

Assuming you have already checked your brake fluid level and your battery and chassis side ground connections you can try to do a pump calibration once or twice to see if it will calibrate and clear. I'm unfortunately not very familiar with COBB so I don't know where to tell you to look in their software.
