Cost of replacing ABS pump controller
The ABS in your car is a system designed to prevent the wheels from locking during braking. ABS causes the braking force to increase and decrease in short intervals, thus allowing the driver to steer while braking. This makes it possible to avoid an obstacle, and the system also shortens braking distances considerably compared with conventional brakes. When the brake is applied, the fluid presses down on the brake pads on the disc so that the car brakes, the pressure is alternately increased and decreased.
One of the components of the system is the ABS pump controller which is responsible for the correct operation of the entire system based on a lot of data, including from sensors that are located in each wheel. The system also includes a brake pressure sensor and a braking pressure sensor. The controller also manages the ESP system.

If the ABS controller malfunctions, you may notice various irregularities, such as uneven braking, pulling the car to one side or wheel locking. A problem could be the electronics or an incorrect sensor reading. Some problems can be similar to a brake fluid pump failure, a system leak or jammed brake discs.
