Why Is My ABS Light On?
If you own or operate a fleet or commercial truck, you’re likely no stranger to dashboard warning lights. Increasingly, a common source of ire for many operators is the ABS, or Anti-lock Braking System light. Here’s what you need to know from T&A Truck Specialist, Inc in Tampa, FL
ABS is a system you’ll find on every vehicle produced after 2012, and many more before that. You may have heard the old saying that you should pump the brakes if you need to stop fast, preventing the wheels from locking up and thereby preventing the vehicle from skidding or losing traction. What ABS does, in short, is pump the brakes for you - many times per second. It allows modern vehicles to stop in a fraction of the time their predecessors were capable of, and keep your bumper as far away from the person in front of you as possible.
If your ABS light is on, your brakes will work fine under normal and light use. However, in rain, ice, or situations where you need to get on the brakes a little harder, you’ll notice a dramatic decrease in stopping power. When you have heavy vehicles on the road in all sorts of conditions, functional ABS is a necessity - especially in a world where almost everyone else has it. You don’t want the car in front of you to have double the stopping power at a moment’s notice.
