What You Need To Know About Your Car’s ABS


Make sure your car’s ABS is in good repair before the first snowfall of the season!

If you’re driving a new car, chances are that your vehicle makes use of the anti-lock braking technology. This braking system is essential because it stops your car safely and effectively, ensure the safety of both you and your passengers. It’s essential for you to maintain your car’s anti-lock braking system is in good repair at all times. Here is some information about anti-lock braking systems (ABS), how they work, and why maintaining them is important.

The Basics

If your car has ABS. your wheels have sensors that check to see if your car is skidding on a road or just slowing down. In these cases, your vehicle’s wheels stop turning for a moment, allowing you to take control of your car and to steer it to safety. This technology is particularly useful in cases when the roads are slick because of weather conditions, but it’s always important. When you are in a situation that can potentially cause you to lose control of your car, ABS allows you a moment to regain control.


Issues & Maintenance

As you drive your car more, you may experience some issues with your vehicle’s ABS. If you find this is the case with your car, it’s important to get it serviced as soon as you can. Your car’s braking system is extremely important and ignoring this problem can lead to negative consequences in the future. Just like the check engine light, there is also a light signaling your ABS needs to be serviced on your dashboard. Usually, when you start your car it’ll be lit up for a moment, but it should turn off shortly afterward.


If it doesn’t, you should get your car serviced. Sometimes, it won’t mean that your brakes are in disrepair, but it’ll instead reveal issues with the sensors on your car’s wheels. Either way, it’s important to do routine maintenance on your car’s braking system regularly to make sure it’s always working properly.
