The C4 Brake Pressure Modulator Valve (BPMV) is a component in the braking system of 1986 to 1991 Corvettes that is responsible for controlling the hydraulic pressure to the wheels during braking. The BPMV is part of the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) and helps prevent the wheels from locking up during hard braking, which can cause loss of control of the vehicle.
The C4 BPMV works by sensing the wheel speed of each wheel through sensors located at each wheel. When the system detects a wheel that is slowing down faster than the others, indicating a possible lock-up, it reduces the hydraulic pressure to that wheel to prevent it from locking up.
The BPMV is also responsible for controlling the pressure to the brake system when the ABS is activated, which can occur in emergency braking situations. The valve helps to rapidly pulse the brake pressure to prevent wheel lock-up and skidding.
If the C4 Brake Pressure Modulator Valve fails or malfunctions, it can result in reduced or ineffective braking performance, increased stopping distances, or loss of control of the vehicle during hard braking. Replacing a faulty BPMV typically requires a qualified mechanic and may involve bleeding the brake system to ensure proper function.
Proper maintenance of the ABS system, including regular inspections and brake fluid changes, can help prevent potential malfunctions and extend the life of the C4 Brake Pressure Modulator Valve.
This C4 Brake Pressure Modulator Valve Rebuilding Service will include the following:
- Rebuilt Electric 12 Volt Motor

The Corvette Salvage Crew has written a guide with necessary steps that must be performed BEFORE installing the rebuilt Brake Pressure Modulator Valve. Failure to follow these steps will result in a voided warranty for your unit.

I recently had a rebuilt brake pressure modulator valve from Dino’s installed in my 1990 C4. The valve worked perfectly and I could not be happier with this purchase. I’m so thankful that there’s a place Like Dino’s where out of production parts can still be obtained. Thanks Guys!
