ABS warning lights

Modern cars use an Anti Lock Braking System (ABS). This system controls each wheel under braking to avoid any one wheel from locking up or skidding. In order to control this ABS safety system the car uses an ABS Electronic Control Unit (ABS ECU) sometimes called an ABS computer. Your modern car ABS system uses a range of sensors:

  • ABS Electronic Control Unit (ABS ECU) / ABS computer.
  • ABS Pump Motor
  • Wheel Sensors
  • Actuators
  • Hydraulic Brake Lines
  • Brake Fluid

If any of these ABS sensor and actuators are faulty then your ABS warning light will start glowing on your dash. This means the self diagnostic functions of your car ABS computer have detected a fault and will automatically store a fault code in the ABS computer memory.
