Top 5 Remanufactured ABS Units

The ABS system is one of the most important safety systems in a car. The ABS unit consists of three components – the ECU, hydraulic system and pump motor. Together these parts ensure that the brakes of a car do not fail during a sudden braking action. However, faults can occur in the ABS system, which could result in the ABS unit experiencing total failure. That is why ACtronics has various remanufacturing solutions to solve problems with the ABS system, so that your car will quickly be back on the road.

1. ATE MK61

The ATE MK61 is one of the most used ABS systems in the last 15 years and has been used by many different brands and types of cars. This unit often comes to our remanufacturing department with errors on the wheel sensors, a defective pump motor or communication issues ABS ECU.

Bosch 8 ESP

2. Bosch 8 ESP

The Bosch 8 was for years Bosch’s most produced ABS. The German electronics giant made a version with and without an ESP. Frequent problems with this unit include  errors on the pump motor, communication problems with the ABS ECU and issues with the brake pressure on one of the wheels. It is important with this ABS to also pay attention to power and/or earth-related faults. Our experience has taught us to first check the fuses of the ABS system carefully as this is often the cause of problems.

ATE MK60 Hydraulische unit

3. ATE MK60 Hydraulische unit

The MK60 is essentially a simplified version of the ATE MK61. Just like the MK61, this ABS unit from the German brand ATE Teves has been used in many different cars. However, the defects that the units produce differ greatly. The hydraulic unit often causes problems with the MK60, which can result in brake pressure sensor-related faults. Temperature changes and vibrations can also cause connection wires in the pressure sensor to malfunction.

Bosch 8 ABS

4. Bosch 8 ABS

We also often see the "standard" variant of the Bosch 8 ABS coming into our remanufacturing department. However, this does not mean that the amount and/or type of defects are all that different. With this ABS we often see the same complaints as the version with ESP. In addition, errors on the wheel sensors with this system often reoccur.

5. ATE MK70

The MK70 from ATE Teves could be seen as "mini MK61". The MK61 is not only slightly larger, but also offers more functionality. The MK70 has been developed for smaller cars and, unlike the ATE MK61, has no ESP function. Common problems with this model include the controller area network (CAN) bus, wheel sensor and pump motor issues. In some cases communication with the ECU is not possible.
