ABS Control Unit Replacement
MOBILE ABS CONTROL UNIT REPLACEMENT AT YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
You will know your ABS system isn’t working quite right if you start to skid while doing the kinds of maneuvers that you used to before without skidding. You shouldn’t assume the system is faulty just because you are skidding high, nor should you assume that it has broken down just because you have been driving the car for a while. This kind of problem is usually caught by technicians when you go for your regular servicing, but you do want to watch out for the warning signs when you are driving. Call Wrench today for auto repair estimates, and let the Wrench Mobile Mechanics come to you at your home or office to service your vehicle and replace your ABS control unit replacement.
WHAT IS ABS CONTROL UNIT REPLACEMENT?
The ABS system essentially takes the feedback from how you are pressing the gas pedal and reinterprets it to the brakes so that you don’t damage the vehicle. It staggers the braking on the tires, regulating how much pressure is placed on the brakes. This ensures you don’t have to replace the brake pads prematurely but also allows you to brake enough to stay out of harm’s way. It’s a smart system, but as complex as it is, it is prone to breaking down after extensive use. Make a call to Wrench today to book an appointment with our team of mobile mechanics. You and your car will be glad you did.
HOW IS ABS CONTROL UNIT REPLACEMENT DONE?
- Locate the ABS module
- Determine how to remove the ABS unit from the car
- Remove the module and solenoid block as a unit
- Remove only the module
- Install the new ABS module
- Install the ABS unit onto the car
If the ABS light is on, get the ABS system inspected as soon as possible and avoid driving on slippery roads 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. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on regular brake service for your car.
SYMPTOMS THAT INDICATE YOU NEED AN ABS CONTROL UNIT REPLACEMENT
