The (ABS) Anti-Lock Braking System is a computer module on your ABS Pump that enables improved control of your vehicle in case of an abrupt stop. The ABS operation is available from approx. 5 Kph to the maximum vehicle speed.
An ABS warning light on your dash means a problem has been detected, and the system needs to be scanned for codes in order find out what area the fault is. With the light on, ABS operation may not be present, but normal braking may be. As with your ECU and Airbag modules. When your ABS module becomes faulty in your vehicle and you take it to a main dealer, the best they can do is to replace it, this also can cost you vasts amount of money in most cases as they can be very expensive to replace.
