How does the ABS control module work?

The ABS system is designed to keep the brakes from locking up on one of the wheels while the vehicle is in motion by quickly engaging and disengaging the brakes in rapid succession until the vehicle is out of harm's way. The ABS control module is the brain of this system, and is physically attached to the brake lines to control the amount of pressure that is being applied when the driver depresses the brake pedal.

What are the symptoms related to a bad ABS control module?

Generally, if the ABS control module fails, the brakes will still function, however, the vehicle will not have skid protection in a turn, under hard acceleration, during hard braking, or if any of the wheels leave the tarmac. ABS, traction control system (TCS), and vehicle stability warning lights will illuminate on the dashboard if the ABS control module suffers failure, and trouble codes specific to the ABS system will be stored in the ECU memory.

Can I drive with an ABS control module problem?

Failure of the ABS control module does not disable the vehicle, but safety is a concern as drivers become accustomed to the road manners of their vehicle's. If hard braking that is normally controlled by the ABS control module is necessary, a collision may occur. We do recommend towing the vehicle to a repair facility if the brakes feel unusual under light or normal driving conditions.

How often do ABS control modules need to be replaced?

ABS control module replacement is less common than most other repairs. If the brake system is properly maintained, the ABS control module can be expected to last the lifetime of the vehicle in most cases.
