When the ABS light is illuminated, a scan tool can be used to access the anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module to retrieve any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). Trouble codes allow a technician to quickly diagnose the anti-lock brake system and perform necessary repairs needed to repair the ABS function.
When a vehicle's ABS light is on, this indicates a significant ABS system failure. The ABS system is normally deactivated when the ABS lamp is illuminated. However, the manual service brake operation is still functional. If a braking situation occurs that requires ABS assistance, the vehicle will not be able to apply the ABS system until it is repaired and the ABS light is turned off. Whenever a brake concern is present, it should be quickly resolved in order to prevent the risk of injury. A faulty ABS system any also result in a much more expensive repair at a later date.
The ABS system is a wonderful vehicle feature that enhances overall vehicle safety. When the ABS light is on, it is an indication of a problem that needs to be addressed. Repairing the ABS system now will ensure that your vehicle is ready for an emergency stop and enhance the vehicle stopping effectiveness under poor weather conditions.
