ABS (Anti-Lock Brakes) Service
The anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are designed to prevent the wheels of your vehicle from
locking during hard braking. No matter how good of a driver you are, when the wheels of your
car are locked, instead of stopping, they end up sliding over the road. This can cause you to lose
the ability to steer, resulting in the vehicle spinning out of control. Therefore, the ABS system in
your car is an important safety feature, especially in Ontario, where roads can often get slick with
rain and snow
The ABS system has predefined service intervals. We urge you check the Owner's Manual of
your vehicle and keep to the manufacturer’s recommendations as the maximum amount of time
What the ABS light means
When there is a problem with the ABS system, it will turn the warning ABS light on to alert the
driver that this safety system is no longer active. It is a good idea to call our service department
to have it checked out just to be on the safe side.
Every driver has unique operating conditions. Only you know how frequently you use your
brakes, under what load, and in what weather. Hence, pay attention to changes in brake
performance, even the small ones, and if your car’s ABS system isn’t responding as quickly as it
used to, it’s time to schedule brake repair services.
