Q: What are the uses of the ABS module?

asked by on

i need help on what uses of an abs module has.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Hello. Your car is equipped with wheel speed sensors at each of the four wheels which monitor wheel speed while relaying this information constantly to the ABS and traction control system which are controlled by the car’s ECU. When the ECU senses an abnormal speed given specific conditions, it engages the ABS or traction control as needed to control the vehicle properly and safely. If you’re ABS Light is on, or if you are in need of any other repair, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to perform any needed tasks.
