    ABS Relay Repair & Replacement

    What does the ABS relay do?

     

    The ABS relay is an important part of the ABS (anti-lock braking) system. It is responsible for supplying power to the ABS pump which pressurises brake fluid and allows the ABS system to work correctly when the brakes are applied.

    The ABS system allows for your vehicle to brake smoothly without the wheels locking. This reduces the risk of accidents. Learn more about the ABS system >

     

    Causes of a failing ABS relay

    Like many other vehicle components, the effectiveness of your car’s ABS relay will degrade over time. This is due to prolonged and frequent use and ageing of the ABS relay contacts, wiring connections, ABS computer relay driver circuit failure and surrounding ABS components degrading.

     

    Symptoms of a failing ABS relay

    ABS light on – The ABS light is your vehicle’s way of warning you there is a problem with your ABS system. If the ABS light is on during a Warrant of Fitness (Wof), then by law your car will fail the WoF due to the safety concerns surrounding your ABS braking system fault. When the ABS relay or pump malfunctions, the light will illuminate. It will usually stay on until the problem is fixed.

    When the ABS light turns on, a fault code will be saved to your vehicle. These codes can be read with diagnostic tools, allowing for a quick diagnosis of the problem. Get a fault code scan >

    ABS system failure – If your ABS system is unable to pressurise brake fluid, it may fail altogether. Signs of a failed ABS system include ABS light always ON, on your dash, the car not braking correctly (brake pedal feels different to normal), or loss of control while braking.
