I believe that Dodge calls it the CAB (Controller antilock brake). See if this sounds familiar:


The Controller Antilock Brake (CAB) is mounted to the Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU) and operates the ABS system.


The CAB voltage source is through the ignition switch in the RUN position. The CAB contains a self check program that illuminates the ABS warning light when a system fault is detected. Faults are stored in a diagnostic program memory and are accessible with the DRB III scan tool. ABS faults remain in memory until cleared, or until after the vehicle is started approximately 50 times. Stored faults are not erased if the battery is disconnected.

NOTE: If the CAB is being replaced with a new CAB is must be reprogrammed with the use of a DRB III.


(1) Remove the negative battery cable from the battery.

(2) Pull up on the CAB harness connector release and remove connector.

(3) Remove the CAB mounting bolts.

(4) Remove the pump connector from the CAB.

(5) Remove the CAB from the HCU.


NOTE: If the CAB is being replaced with a new CAB is must be reprogrammed with the use of a DRB III.

(1) Install CAB to the HCU.

(2) Install the pump connector to the CAB.

(3) Install mounting bolts. Tighten to 2 N·m (16 in. lbs.).

(4) Install the wiring harness connector to the CAB and push down on the release to secure the connector.

(5) Install negative battery cable to the battery."

Hope this helps, good luck
