Is that part of the ABS or the actual braking system?
It'* part of the ABS; again, it'* not involved in the service brakes and you can drive safely without it working.
Actually I think I'd go ahead and fix the sensors as required (not replacing parts at random, but testing and fixing the problems one wheel at a time where necessary), and then see if you still have a pump motor test problem after that. If the system can't get feedback from its wheel sensors to begin with, I'm not sure how much more self-testing it would bother doing, or how reliable its self-test results would be anyway.
