Latest update on the Audi ABS Control unit problems. I spoke with a parts guy at the local Audi dealership and asked whether they get a lot of problems with the ABS Control UNits and he said yes absolutely. In fact, they have had so many problems that instead of selling only the complete control unit for about $1,400, they are now selling the electronics for $500 because that was the faulty part. I asked him why the company doesn't just admit the problem and do a recall and he shook his head and said he didn't know, but that it is a pretty common problem.
So I guess the good news is that the price to repair the faulty ABS control unit is now only $500 plus labor instead of $1,400 plus labor. But the bad news is that Audi still isn't stepping up to the plate and doing a recall, or at the very least covering the cost of the part when the faulty part goes out.
