Your ABS system works both by means of electricity and hydraulic pressure. Fluid levels need to be monitored at all times, and that is the job of the ABS fluid level sensor. Located in the master cylinder, the ABS fluid level sensor is constantly working to make sure that the brake fluid is at the proper level. Essentially, it is a switch that sends a message to your car’s computer if the fluid level ever drops below what is safe. Then, the car’s computer responds by turning on your ABS light, and disabling the ABS system. You will still have your regular braking system, but without the ABS, your brakes could lock up if you use them on slippery surfaces, and your stopping distance could be increased.

There is no set point at which your anti-lock brake fluid sensor has to be replaced. Simply stated, you replace it when it fails. Like other electrical components in your car, though, it is vulnerable to damage due to corrosion or wear and tear. The life of the anti-lock brake fluid sensor can also be reduced if you don’t have regular fluid changes.

Signs that your anti-lock brake fluid sensor needs to be replaced include:

  • ABS light is on
  • ABS system is not working

Any problems with your brakes should immediately be checked out by a qualified mechanic if you expect to continue to drive safely. YourMechanic can diagnose any problems with your ABS, and if necessary, replace the anti-lock fluid level sensor.

Francisco was very knowledgeable. He prioritized which repairs were needed now, and which could be delayed and explained why. Francisco also gave me options on what could be done to save money without jeopardising quality. I'll be using him again and would highly recommend him.

Acura RL - Battery - Seattle, Washington
This is the first time I have used Your Mechanic, and I will be using them again. Noe was great! The prior appointment he was at went a little longer than expected, but Noe arrived in less than his estimated time and I was kept informed the entire time, via text messages and emails from the company. I was helping out a friend whose car has been sitting in a garage for a few months. After the new battery was installed and I inquired about the clicking sound coming from the car, Noe explained in layman terms what that was and why it was happening. He even stuck around until the clicking sound stopped. This is a great service and I have already been promoting Your Mechanic and Noe Reyes to my coworkers. I will be calling again, hopefully not too soon (no offense Noe ). Thanks again and I will be telling my friends and family about you.

Nissan Altima - Car is making a noise - Nashville, Tennessee
My car had a noise, and after Jason did the work, my car still had a noise. So even though he was punctual, professional, and as informative as he could be I (thought) my issue hadn't been resolved. But when I took the car into the dealership this morning, I didn't hear any noise at all! But I took it in anyway thinking better safe than sorry! Well, the dealership checked it out and called to tell me they didn't hear any noise and couldn't find a problem. So Jason did a great job!
