5th gen ABS Motor Stuck ON - code 53. Please help!

Hi All,

I have the ABS light on, the code is 53 - Motor Stuck ON.

Additionally I have found some brake fluid (i think) or other kind of oily crap around the brake fluid reservoir. It looks like the thing was sprayed all over and there is a stain on the underside bonnet mat.
The fluid level is well ove min though and the car brakes, just no ABS.

I understand the code means the ABS pump module is gone.
I also know this kind of error may be triggered by something trivial like a bad sensor or something, or maybe low pressure in the system.

Could anybody tell me how to diagnose the pump or how to actually find out which component os the ABS system has failed?

I can do some multimeter stuff etc. just don't know where to start.
I don't want to replace the pump and end up with the same error.

All input is much appreciated.

My abs light is on but that is because I bought the car with -4 front camber and my tires chewed right threw them. Doubt thats your cause but you said any info
