ANTY-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)

An anti- lock braking system is a safety anti-skid braking system used on vehicles that prevents the wheels from locking up during braking and maintains the contact with the road surface.

ABS uses wheel speed sensors to determine if one or more wheels are trying to lock up during braking. If a wheel tries to lock up a series of hydraulic valves limit or reduce the braking on that wheel.

This prevents skidding and allows you to maintain steering control.

Symptoms of a damaged ABS:

  • ABS light on
  • ABS not working properly
  • Traction Control is active

Specialist Advice: If you are facing any of this symptoms you should address the problem to an expert and have your car checked carefully. It might be only a sensor but it also might be a bigger problem as the ABS is directly connected with your car brakes.

CONTROL UNITS - REPLACING AND PROGRAMMING:

Most of the CONTROL UNITS used on today’s cars are having the chip locked or programmed only for that certain car. This feature doesn’t give the option of changing the control unit from one car to another fact that leads to high costs in buying and programming new control units in case a car is having a failure with this part of the car.

Our engineers are proud to say that they have the knowledge and high technological tools to fix and program Used Control Units from one car to another, keeping exactly the same functions as the car had before the replacement. This feature we can proudly guarantee that cannot be done not even by the Official Dealer.
