ABS Control Module Replacement Service

What is the ABS Control Module all about?

ABS (anti-lock brake system) is a safety system that prevents your car from skidding or sliding when you apply the brakes. There are two main components: the ABS speed sensors and the ABS control module. When the brake is applied, the ABS control module reads the speed data from the speed sensor and sends the correct pressure to each wheel to prevent any sliding/skidding (wheels locking up).

If the ABS module or one of the sensors goes bad, the ABS warning light will turn on and it will disable the ABS. You will still be able to slow down and stop your car, but it will not prevent the wheel from sliding when you apply the brakes (especially critical on wet or slippery surfaces).

Keep in mind:

  • The brake system will need to be flushed with new brake fluid when the control module is replaced.
  • The ABS often shares a control module with the TCS (Traction Control System), meaning that a faulty ABS control module will also turn off the TCS, and a new module will likely restore both systems.
  • Newer vehicles require a new ABS control module to be programmed, which we will do for you upon installation.

How it's done:

  • Confirm that the ABS control module is bad.
  • Remove and replace the ABS module if needed.
  • Bleed the brake system.
  • Add new brake fluid.
  • Test drive the car.
  • Inspect the brake system.

Our recommendation:

  • Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on regular brake service for your car.
  • If the ABS light is on, get the ABS system inspected as soon as possible and avoid driving on slippery roads (rainy days) completely.
  • During a brake service, your mechanic should make sure the sensor is free of debris and/or grease, which could prevent the sensor from functioning properly.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the ABS Control Module?

  • ABS Light is on
  • Brakes are not working
