The electronic brake control module is on the left side of instrument panel probably under the dash on the left side of dash. Thats all the information I have on its location.

I do not have any code numbers, I have a abs light on, I bought a top of the line Innova 3160D, that according to the abs on their web site this car was supposed to be supported, but it does not read the abs codes for this car, and I don't have access to a GM Tech 1 obviously. This is my son's car with 200k on it, we can't afford to take it to a dealer to get it scanned. I checked the front sensors, with an ohm meter, they appear to be ok, they have ac current when the wheel is turned. I had to replace the lower intake manifold and 1 front axle joint, and I thought I might have damaged a wire somehow. The abs system was working before this repair work. Thanks

The problem with the do it yourself scan tools that claim abs codes are hit and miss on which cars they work on. The matco pro scans and otc nemisys scan tools read all the computers the only exception is certain computers on the car on the newer cars you need the added obd smart cable. But most of those computers you dont run into needing them scanned. There pretty cheap sometimes on ebay with the older software.I have the mac taskmaster scan tool which is the same electronics just different box around it. It does live data on the computers etc. Without the codes your looking for a needle in a hay stack.

I understand there could be lots of things wrong, but to me logic would dictate that if the system was working before I did the work replacing, the intake manifold gaskets and the front struts, springs, and the front wheel hubs and the rear shocks, that is highly likely I broke something. So, I want to check, the rear sensors and the continuity on the sensor wires, if that fails, then I will consider taking it to a local former GM dealer repair shop. Thanks

Then I would inspect all four sensors do ohms resistance of all the sensors and compare the front readings to each other and the rear sensors readings to each other. Also Inspect the wires I would think there would be a pinched wire or visible damage to the wire. Theres just a lot to cover with all places you were during your repairs. All four wheels hopefully its something easy to spot without a code to lead you to the wheel where the problem is.

Just to help with your original question, the module is in the firewall, under the windshield.
