    They are telling you the truth!! The pump, the pistons in side the assembly
    or the hydraulic assembly is covered under the recall. 3 things only!!! The
    accumlator is not covered. If the accumultor is bad, each time you press on
    the brake pedal the ABS RED LITE will turn on because the accumulator does
    not hold pressure. So the pump kicks on to try to replenish the it.
    The pump turns on when the pressure drops to 1600psi and turns off at
    2100psi. if you dont replace the accumulator now it will burn the pump up
    and then you will be buying a pump. One more thing you may want to replace
    is and not covered under the recall is the dual funtion pressure switch, it
    will wear out over time and could cause the pump to not turn on. The return
    filter that supplies the pump fluid is not part of the warranty either and
    this should be replaced as well. The dealer has all right to charge you
    for check out.
    I dont think the dealer forget the statement, i think you just dont
    understand the recall. I would replace the accumulator now if I were you.

    Well certainly, you just hie thee down to the local wrecker and get
    yourself a complete NON-ABS master cylinder, booster, brake lines, etc.

    Plenty of those vehicles were made without ABS. It isn't necessary
    for the ABS system to be present on the vehicle at all.
