How much does it cost to fix an anti-lock brake system?

I’ve been having a ton of issues with my brakes recently. I’ve been noticing my brakes lock more frequently and I keep hearing weird noises. I think it’s my anti-lock brake system, but I’m worried about the repair costs. How much will it cost to fix an anti-lock brake system?

Problems like
worn out brakes
or a malfunctioning anti-lock brake system are causes for concern, so you must get your brakes looked at as soon as possible.
On average, you can expect to spend $300 to $1,000 to fix an anti-lock brake system. Since several parts make up an anti-lock brake system, your price will vary depending on what the issue is. The cost is made up of three parts: 
  • A diagnostic test: $80 to $100
  • Repairs: $200 to $800
  • Labor: $100 to $200
In some cases, a mechanic may also opt to replace your entire anti-lock brake module to ensure your vehicle remains safe to drive, which will be a more expensive repair.
To replace your entire anti-lock brake module, you’d be looking at a price point between $500 to $1400.
Pro tip: Since it is a pricey repair, be sure to shop around with a few different shops or go with a mechanic you trust.
