So my abs control module is shot. I have no abs on my car and have my abs light on as well as a blinking brake light. I was wondering if you could take a working control module off a junk car and just interchange them? Or is there coding involved with getting a new one. Also how trustworthy are websites that have you send in the module

When mine went bad, I got one from a salvage yard. Been working for over a year now.
Some units need programming, some don't.

This site - CHEAP ABS Module Repair for Audi - has gone out of business, but at least you can use their info to determine if your old one needed programming. Mine didn't so I just found one that also didn't.

Whether or not if you replace one needing programming with one that doesn't and it will function - that I don't know.

Sam,
I just removed mine from my 2005 1.8t with ESP and sent it to ModuleMaster in Moscow, Idaho. I can let you know how it goes upon reinstallation.
