Did you know that the Antilock Braking System (ABS) warning light means the ABS system has been deactivated because of a self-diagnosed fault. Even though this is the case normal braking “should” still remain. The vehicle should be safe to drive under normal conditions provided the driver does not have to call on the ABS system when panic braking on a wet or slick surface. ABS??is essentially an add-on to the existing brake system which??only comes into play when traction conditions are marginal or during sudden panic stops. The rest of the time, it has no effect on normal driving or braking.

An ABS warning light can come on for several reasons. One reason may be a loss of power-assist if the vehicle has an ABS system relying on an electric pump and pressure accumulator pump rather than a conventional vacuum brake booster. The car will still brake, but will not have the usual power assist. This creates an unsafe situation for drivers who have difficulty braking without power-assisted brakes. An ABS warning lamp that comes on when the car starts moving, or anti-lock braking operation where valve cycling occurs during normal stops on dry pavement, often (but not always) indicates a problem with one of the wheel speed sensors.
