For expensive electronics check with a dismantler like erie, was able to pick up a working siren module for $80 that way that also comes with a lifetime warranty so I don't have to worry about it being used.

I don't think the BPS can throw a CEL. I drove around with a bad bps for a few years and never had a CEL. It's easy to replace and they are about $80-90 from FCPeuro.com

I also have a slightly used spare if you'd like to buy it. It was on my car for 2-3 years until I had to replace my brake booster which comes with a new bps installed.

And if your cruise control works, you don't need a new bps.

How do you pull out these sensors? Turn counter-clockwise? I have to replace one of these and I'm nervous I'm going to break it.

Clean the surround of the base of the switch with a toothbrush and a stainless snap ring will reveal itself. Pry the snap ring apart but first remember to release all the vacuum from the booster by pressing the brake pedal repeatedly otherwise the o ring will get sucked in and be a permanent fixture at the base of the booster.

I agree it doesn't set off a CEL and will prevent cruise control from working.
