then some stuff about the labor if they where to fix to but $100 seems a lil pricey to me
So they don't truly know what wrong with the system?
Here is the deal..
Your car has the EBTCM - Electronic Brake Traction Control Module, This is the system that controls the ABS and the Traction Control...
Its Possible to have the Traction Control portion fail and still have ABS... But you have neither system.. We have pretty much never seen an EBTCM Fail in any manner.. Usually the problem will be with a wheel speed sensor, or an inlet or outlet pressure valve in the ABS/Traction Pump assembly..
Being that you have a 95 with Traction control, the PCM does not control the EBTCM directly, but the PCM works in conjunction with the system and will pull timing to help you keep traction..
I'm not sure I'd say firestone is the place to tell you that its a total failure and you need a new PCM.. I don't buy their diagnosis at all... I'd take the car to a dealer and have them read and give you the codes, as well as what they feel the issue is...
