Volkswagen Transporter T5 ABS pump fault

Volkswagen Transporter T5 ABS pump fault

This ABS pump and module for the Volkswagen T5 Transporter is a commonly failing part that will cause the constant illumination of the ABS and Traction Control warning lights and an audible beeping on starting the vehicle. In addition to these warning lights; the Handbrake light will flash, the speedometer will become inoperative and the fuel gauge may become erratic. 

Commonly the internal malfunction of these VW T5 ABS pumps will cause codes to be logged for 00285 – ABS wheel speed sensor front right, 00290 – ABS wheel speed sensor rear left and 01276 – ABS hydraulic pump V64 malfunction, or ultimately it may simply fail to communicate full stop giving a clear indication of failure. 

Whilst standard braking will still be in effect, the emergency braking system will not function while these faults are present. Volkswagen specialists and main dealerships will seek to resolve these Transporter T5 and VW T-Porter ABS issues by supplying and fitting a brand new unit. 

Our solution, however, is a much more economical approach of rebuilding the original unit for a fraction of the cost of a new unit. This will also remove the cost of programming a new unit to the vehicle as we retain all the coded information, so no need for an expensive trip to the dealer for programming – simply refit and away you go. Unlike the short one-year manufacturer warranty, all of our rebuilds carry an unlimited mileage lifetime warranty.

Test and rebuild:

During testing the VW T5 Transporter ABS unit is run on our state of the art, custom built HIL (Hardware In-the-Loop) testing rig. This allows us to run the ABS under real-world load and driving conditions and identify all faults within the unit. Once all internal faults have been identified our technicians will rebuild the unit and replace all common failing components with versions that are higher rated than standard, and then extensively re-test to ensure that no faults remain and to ensure that it meets or exceeds the original specifications.

 

Programming:

This unit is coded on installation to the vehicle, however during testing and rebuild we retain all coding so that the ABS is ready to go once physically installed back onto the vehicle.

 

Quality:

Our strict quality control: encompassing testing, components and workmanship will ensure only the highest level of work is carried out to meet our lifetime warranty standards. Due to our extremely high standards we work very closely with dealerships and specialists, offering a better solution to replacement. Our work defect rate is lower than 0.6% on all of our rebuilds, so you can be assured of our very high standard of work.

Warranty:

Lifetime unlimited mileage*

Can I send just module without pump? What would total cost be with testing and repair - fault code 01130 not a plausible signal. Thanks Miles

Hi Miles, we would recommend sending the whole unit in (including the hydro-pump) as sometimes the Hydro-pump is also faulty with the fault code you mention.
