ABS warning light

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

The Antilock Braking System or ABS helps the driver maintain the steering control during hard braking on gravel, wet, or icey surfaces. Without the ABS, a car would spin out of control when the wheels lock up during hard braking, especially on slippery surface. The ABS uses wheel speed sensors to monitor the speed of each wheel. If any of the wheels lock up during braking, the ABS quickly releases then applies the braking pressure to the affected wheel, preventing it from locking. If the ABS system doesn't work properly, you will see the ABS warning light on the dash. In Canada, and especially Saskatchewan, it is imperative that your ABS Braking System is working properly during our cold, icy, winter conditions.
