Complaint - Service Brakes Air

I HAVE A 4 YEAR OLD CHEVY ASTRO VAN WITH A KELSEY HAYES EBC UNIT. RECENTLY THE ABS LIGHT STARTED COMING ON FROM TIME TO TIME WHEN THE ENGINE HAD BEEN RUNNING FOR A WHILE, BUT IT WOULD GO OFF WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS TURNED OFF AND RESTARTED COLD. I HAD MY BRAKE SYSTEM CHECKED AND THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE BRAKES. THE CODE INDICATED A BAD RELAY IN THE COMPUTER CONTROL SYSTEM. THE PROBLEM IS THAT IT CAUSES THE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS I HAVE NO ABS WORKING. THIS COULD CAUSE A SAFETY ISSUE UNDER CERTAIN BRAKING CONDITIONS. THE LIGHT DOESN'T COME ON ALL THE TIME SO THE QUESTION IS DO I PAY OVER $900 FOR SOMETHING THAT I BELIEVE TO BE A MANUFACTURING DEFECT OR DO I TAKE A CHANCE THAT WHEN I NEED MY BRAKES THAT THE ABS SYSTEM WILL WORK. AS OF NOW, I HAVE NOT REPLACED THE PART. THE DEALER INDICATED THAT THE PART # WAS 12478045 . THIS PART CANNOT BE PURCHASED EXCEPT THROUGH A DEALER. IT IS THEIR PRODUCT.
