Picture this, when you start your vehicle, think about that ABS light that illuminates briefly on your dashboard, but quickly goes out.
Does your ABS light stay on?
This is your car letting you know your antilock brake function, well, it won’t operate. Not having the ability to stop quickly to avoid a collision could be deadly.

Now back to the ABS light.
The function of the antilock brake system referred to as an ABS, uses speed sensors located in each wheel. These sensors detect and control the speed at which the wheel turns just in case of the need for an emergency stop.
If the sensor detects one or more wheels spinning slower than another, your ABS will spring into action by causing a rapid pumping of the brake at the wheel that is locking up.
This helps the driver brake and gain control of the vehicle to steer the vehicle, potentially avoiding an accident.
A faulty ABS system can be caused by several different problems, such as:
- Faulty sensors
- A bad module
- A wiring problem
Do not avoid this light because your vehicle may fail you next time you need to quickly stop in order to avoid a collision.
The warning sign of your ABS light staying on, it’s telling you that you have to have your system diagnosed and repaired so the next time you need to stop quickly, your ABS won’t fail you.
