This is a safety feature that all cars have, which helps prevent your car’s wheels from locking and ultimately skidding in an emergency. This feature is essential as it can save you from many unsafe and risky situations. They help you have more control and power over your vehicle, especially on slick and slippery surfaces. The purpose is to prevent skidding, which is often caused due to the wheels of the car locking. When the wheels don’t lock, you can maintain more traction in the wheels and steer to a safer location, and eventually come to a halt.
The way these mechanism works is quite interesting. The ABS has electronic sensors and pressure pumps, which can sense the car’s speed, the wheel slip, and the external force applied to the brakes. When they exceed a specific limit, indicating a skid or an obstacle that might cause your car to skid, the ABS pumps the brakes, which is way safer and more effective than when a person applies them. This intelligent mechanism keeps drivers safe in all types of sticky situations.
Several reasons may lead to the light of your ABS turning on. Here is a little bit about the different causes and why that happens.
