ABS Valve Assembly

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) valve assembly is operated by the ABS control module. The valves open and close as necessary when the ABS is active, providing the correct brake fluid pressure to each wheel to prevent wheel lockup during braking.

Symptoms of Wear or Failure

  • Illumination of the ABS warning light

Related Repair Advice
