Stealth ABS computer

The ABS light on my 94 Camry is not lighting, and the ABS is not working ( wheels lock up), so after "extensive" testing (per AllData) I've determined that the ABS computer needs to be replaced. The dealer quoted me $800, which I am not about to pay. So off I went to the salvage yards to find a replacement. That's where things started to get interesting. My car is made in north america in 05/94. Apparently there was a production change on 6/94, so almost everything on that car is different. There are also two ABS type on the car, either a Bosch or a Nippon/Denso. I know I have the Bosch unit (it says so on the actuator). However, AllData shows the computer and actuator to be together in the engine compartment. All of the salvave yards I talked to keep telling me that the computer is actually inside the car on the passanger's side. Who's right? I was quoted prices for both the ABS computer and the "engine compartment unit". I don't want to buy both of them if I don't have to, and since the light is not working, and the diagnostic codes can't be pulled from the ABS computer I assume it's bad.

Nipp has ecu not on unit under hood, on those I think the ecu is under the package tray in the trunk. You need a Bosch unit, which has ecu attached to the actuator

So I was right, the computer is on top of the actuator. Is it possible to replace just the ECU, or does the whole unit has to be replaced?

Toyota and the aftermarket companies out there all offer reman controller units. I'd go that route.

Keep the junk in the junkyard where it belongs. A Toyota rebuilt will have the latest and greatest updates as well as far as durability.
