"Help Me Obi Wan" I Need An ABS Module for a 2003 4.6is

Greetings enthusiasts, I am in desperate need of finding an ABS module (both the electric and hydraulic) for my 2003 4.6is. My mechanic has unsuccessfully purchased 3 rebuilt ones and none of them has been able to be coded properly. This has been going on for the better part of a year and we are running out of option. He has the proper coding equipment(Autologic Drive Pro-ES) and successfully done several for both 3.0 & 4.4's, and yet, cannot get it to work w/ my 4.6. Looking for a workaround that hasn't been considered or a place where I can get a new one without having to pay $2,000+.

You're our final Hope.

Do you have the round connector in the hood?

I've replaced my 4.6is ABS module (bosch 5.7) with used one came from 3.0L. Nothing special about 4.6is ABS module.
Code it by INPA.
Calibrate steering angle sensor by DIS.

On a previous e46, I had an ABS/ASC/brake light combo on. Split open open the module to get to the board and found 2 cracked solder joints. Re-soldered and all was well. Worth a check for this diagnosis.

Why do you need the hydraulic pump? Why not have your original one rebuilt?
