If it finds it's lacking data, or a hydraulic pump or valve isn't responding, it illuminates the ABS warning light on the dash. ABS relies on a properly operating conventional brake system. If the ABS packs up, you should still have normal, unassisted braking, so it's safe to continue your journey.
Also, what causes ABS light to come on and stay on?
An ABS light (anti-lock braking system) that is stuck on doesn't necessarily mean you need an ABS brake repair. The light staying on can be caused by something as simple as the emergency brake or more complicated things like a loss of brake fluid and pressure or bad hydraulic valves.
What would cause the ABS light to come on?
This in turn makes it one of the more common causes of the ABS light coming on. When the wheel speed sensor alerts the ABS that the wheels are moving at different speeds, a hydraulic valve is responsible for releasing, or increasing, the brake fluid pressure to prevent the wheels from losing traction with the ground.
Is it safe to drive a car with ABS light on?
Yes, your automobile is safe to drive; however, you should have us look it over if the light stays on. It's also important to note that if both the ABS and Brake System warning lights come on at the same time while you're driving, you must stop your car or truck as quickly and safely as you can and call for a tow.
