My brother, who also has an Audi with a crappy Bosch ABS control unit just called me up and asked if I know anything about the ABS control unit because his just went out on him and the dealer wants $1,400 to repair it. We have similar Audis and he is also having a problem with the ABS control unit? Coincidence? I think NOT! Audi really needs to recall the Bosch ABS control units now!
Audis and VWs between the years of 1996 and 2001 have had a large number of problems with the ABS control unit. If your ABS light goes on and the brake light flashes while the car beeps at you on start-up, then you probably have a bad ABS control unit and it will cost $1,500 - $1,700 to repair! Audi and VW should recall these cars and repair them!
