ABS Light Diagnosis and Repair

ABS Light - What does it mean?

Your anti-lock braking system (ABS) prevents your car's wheels from locking during hard braking. It ensure you have full control of the car and do not skid.

When you brake hard, the wheel sensors send a signal to the engine control unit (ECU) that the wheels may lock and skid. In which case, the ECU releases the brakes in the wheels, enabling you to keep control of the vehicle and stopping them from locking.

Every time you turn the ignition on, the ABS system will self-test. It will usually turn off after a few seconds, but if the ABS light stays on - there's a problem with the vehicle's ABS system. We would recommend getting the car to a garage quickly. The ABS system is an essential safety feature which you may need at any point. Bring your car to the South Coast Garage team, who will run some diagnostic tests and get it sorted for you quickly and efficiently.

If both the brake system light and ABS light are on at the same time, you should carefully stop in a safe place and wait for recovery. You have a serious issue with the braking system which needs to be looked at immediately.

Causes of ABS light being on

Your ABS light could be on for many reasons. It may be that your brake fluid is too low and needs topping up. You can do this yourself and the ABS light should turn off.

Or, it may be a more serious issue such as the wheel sensor being damaged or reduced pressure in the braking system which can be caused by cracks in the brake fluid reservoir or brake lines. We will diagnose the issue for you in-house and suggest the best route forward.
