    2005 Durango ABS Control Module Fits

    Guys, I searched hard for a replacement ABS control after opening mine and cutting thru wires thinner than a hair...that are laser soldered. Anyway, I came across a 2005 Dodge Durango ABS controller. It sure looked the same. Took a chance and bought for 100. I'm sure they can be found for cheaper and for other years.

    It fits and works perfect.

    Did a salvage yard actually "part-out" and ABS controller -- to provide only "half" the brains? Seems like an unusual find.

    Is the part # in the pic above?

    No partout. This is how they are sold. At least in my searches. I sifted thru hundreds to find a model that fit.

    You need to post the part number, the years it fits and whether this was for 4x2 or 4x4 model. Lets not leave posts half answered! =)

    yeah, it's for a 4x4...I figured everyone should know they must match that. As for part number, the one that it came with should suffice...the one written there. If not, just match on year...or visually.

    AWESOME! I nominate you for this year's forum hero!

    My bro-in-law (owner of an import repair business) is going to help with a little research tomorrow to see if he can find out if they all use the same ABS module. When looking up the '05 Durango, I'm seeing there are 3 different engines, 2wd, 4wd, with and without traction control.

    So when you were talking about cutting "hair-like" wires, did you actually try to pull the coils(?) from the controller? I'm assuming the "hairs" run to the pinned contact panel?

    No, this was once I cut the plastic panel away to try to get to those two wires that need to be resoldered. There's a pic in one of the responses. I used a dremel (someone said use a box cutter...utterly impossible, IMO). There's a gel that someone else wrote "protects" the circuit board. It does not. It keeps hair-like wires in place.

    Anyway, while cutting the plastic covering to get to the circuit board, I must have cut into these wires (multiple magnifying glasses are needed to see them). They are soldered via laser.

    OK, just to be clear...is it safe to say that the Antilock brake black plastic circuit "brain" part (as pictured in the Ebay auction xcelr8 bought) could just be unscrewed/removed in our VX's while under the hood and then replaced with a new one, such as the 05 Durango module, and that could potentially give ABS back and work?
    Please, someone chime in and give feedback, details or confirmation.
