Help Abs unit burnt out

2002 2.4 JTD Alfa 156,Yesterday my asr and vdc failure lights were on and are still on,plugged in examiner and was unable to connect to the abs ecu,this evening I was looking around the engine bay and noticed a funny smell near the battery, only to discover that the plug on the abs unit had a hole melted in it,seems like the abs ecu had some king of internal fault and burnt out inside,I disconnected the battery immediately and thanked my lucky stars the car and the whole garage did not go up in smoke,anyone ever heard of something like this happening? I heard that if the abs ecu has a bad earth it can run continuously? now i must get another ecu and wiring plug off a scrapper,any ideas greatly appreciated.

Hope you find another one... You might be lucky finding one at a scrappy, but if not try AutoLusso...
