Anti-Lock Pressure Switch Replacement in Hamilton

What is the Anti-Lock Pressure Switch?

The anti-lock braking system (ABS) is an important safety component in modern vehicles. It prevents the wheels from locking when the brakes are applied, allowing for improved control over your vehicle when you are slowing down or coming to a stop.

Inside the ABS system, pressurised fluid is pumped into the accumulator, where it sits ready to apply force to the brakes. The anti-lock pressure switch monitors pressure and turns the pump on and off according to how much fluid is needed to fill the accumulator. This ensures that the ABS system runs correctly at all times, keeping the driver and passenger(s) safe in the event that they need to brake quickly.

Symptoms of a faulty anti-lock pressure switch:

  • ABS warning light – When a problem occurs in the ABS system, the ABS warning light will normally appear on your dashboard.
  • Reduced control while braking – When the ABS pressure switch fails, your ABS system will stop working correctly. This may cause your wheels to lock while braking, reducing the control you have over your vehicle.
  • Increased wear of ABS components – When the pressure switch is failing, it may send an inconsistent signal to the ABS pump. This will cause it to operate incorrectly and wear quickly.

What else can cause the ABS light to turn on?


How important is an anti-lock pressure switch replacement?

If the anti-lock pressure switch fails, your ABS system will be unable to function correctly. This can affect the safety of your vehicle by reducing the control you have while braking. For this reason, it is important that you get your vehicle inspected and repaired if the ABS light turns on.

Please Note – if your ABS warning light is ON constantly for an anti-lock pressure switch failure, then you will fail a Warrant of Fitness (WOF). You will need to get this correctly diagnosed and replaced before your WOF can be issued.
