    My 2012 Prius C has 322,000 miles on it and other than the oil pan plug, it has never had a wrench turned on it until now. Original hybrid batteries lasted 320,000 miles and I replaced with refurbished batteries and am very pleased with them so far. The antilock brake pump has gone out and I found an ABS pump/Actuator for 225.00 that has been tested as opposed to the dealership's price quote of 3,500.00. Problem is that the shop that can install it tells me the ABS pump has to be programmed to my vehicle by a Toyota dealer and the local dealership will not program a used one. Does this sound right, or even lawful? This car gets 50 mpg and even 45 mpg when you drive it hard. I'm willing to spend 500 to 700 to get this fixed but in no way will I spend around 4,000. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    That is a lie, the pump does not has to be reprogramed, i replaced both the brake booster and brake pump assembly on mine and no reprograming was needed.
