Default antilock brakes replacement?

My daughters both have Acura Integras (GS). One is a 94, the other a
95.

The mileages are 50k and 60k.

On both the ABS lights have come on. They have both been told that the
ABS system has failed and need replacemnt at around $1800 ea. OUCH.

Is this commonplace? Does this sound right?

any advice appreciated.

John

BTW, both have had a rattle inside the left rear door since new.
Doesn't seem to bother the girls, but it would drive me nuts. The
dealer has not be able to hear this most obvious noise.

Default Re: antilock brakes replacement?

Fairly common. There are several failure modes. If there fluid is
disappearing from the ABS reservoir, you just have to replace the leaky
seals. If the fluid is still up, you can try changing all the fluid (both
the main system and the ABS reservoirs), exercise them a few times (invoke
the ABS on a dirt road or something) and see if the systems start working.
Otherwise that's about the right price.

Fortunately, the main brakes are not adversely affected by the ABS going
out. You can just pull the fuse to the ABS and the car will behave with
full braking power as if it didn't have the ABS option. For $3600 you can
probably find a pretty good school for the girls on how to pulse the brakes
themselves if they ever lock them up.
