The input to the DIM module is from the ABS system There seems to be no information from the Unit. WHERE isthe ABS unit located?

Finding this unit and checking to see if the cable/plug is connected is first line servicing this should be the first place to check and see if the connection is broken.

This will verify wether the DIM module is US. Therefor what other check are necessary?

Your abs module can go bad you right and effect but it don't effect as much Spedo lights but you can check it. Locate your brake fluid reservoir under that there is abs pump then under abs pump you will see big wiring harness connector going to that module that is your abs module it bolts to abs pump if you can rate neutral please remove negative ratting
