ABS Light & Other Subaru Brake Repair Information at Subaru of San Bernardino

How Do You Know if Your Vehicle Has Anti lock Brakes?

Schedule a anti lock brake system repair service at Subaru of San Bernardino

If your vehicle was manufactured since 2013, then it's required by law to be equipped with anti lock brakes. However, many automakers including Subaru have been providing this important safety system for many years before it was legally required. If you've ever had to slam on the brakes, the reaction of a vehicle equipped with ABS is very different than one without. Instead of locking up the tires so the vehicle skids to a stop while leaving black streaks from the tires, anti lock brakes rapidly pulsate in response to emergency braking. This provides greater control and much shorter stopping distances.

Instead of taking your car out and slamming on the brakes, we recommend speaking with one of our knowledgeable services advisers if you're not sure whether your vehicle has anti lock brakes.

What Should You Do if the ABS Light Comes on in Your Vehicle?

You should never ignore a dashboard indicator light that comes on in your Subaru, but the ABS light is especially important. When you see this light, it means something isn't right with the anti lock brake system. So, if someone were to pull out in front of you or some other surprise requires you to slam on the brakes, your safety could be at a greater risk.

These are your brakes we're talking about here, so we don't recommend driving a vehicle that has an ABS light on. Instead, call roadside service or contact us to help arrange for a tow. Chances are that the problem is a bad wheel speed sensor or ABS module. However, an expert technician with a specific code reader will need to investigate and determine exactly what the problem is.

Subaru ABS Module Repair

In rare cases, the reason that your anti lock brakes aren't working right is because of the ABS control module. This is essentially a small computer that gathers information from the wheel speed sensors to determine how the ABS motor should operate. It's important to understand that this module is not just responsible for preventing the wheels from locking up during an emergency stop. It's also a central part of your vehicle's traction control system. If the ABS module is the reason for the light coming on, chances are that it will need to be replaced.
