Understanding ABS malfunctions
Before you visit us, you must be aware of certain tell-tale signs of ABS problems.
Take a look!
- You have to push the brake pedals harder: Ordinarily, a slight tap on the brake pedal is enough to slow down the car. It is true even if you are driving on iced-out roads; a properly functioning ABS will also ensure there is no skidding. But if you notice that it takes a significant effort to decelerate or stop your car, the ABS module may have problems.
It is vital that you contact a professional service station like V-Tech Auto immediately. Driving without an optimally functioning ABS raises the chances of increased aquaplaning and loss of traction.
- The ABS light comes on: A triggered amber ABS warning light indicates that an ABS module has malfunctioned, and the system is not fully operational. We recommend that you visit us for a meticulous ABS repair Reading without wasting any time.
Please note that ABS sensors are easily damaged by metal shavings and debris collected during drives and also due to electrical issues. False-positive readings are not uncommon either. We will inspect all possibilities.
- Brake locking: It is the most obvious sign that your car’s ABS has developed performance issues. The reason this technology exists is to ensure that even when you ‘panic brake’, the mechanism does not lock and the vehicle holds firm. There might also be a series of irregular clicking sounds, and you will find it pretty tough to control the car.
Our technicians recommend that should this suddenly happen, you must pump the brakes and downshift gears, while gently using the handbrake. Else, there might be serious issues.
