I’m sorry, were you hoping this symptom wouldn’t be mentioned? Look, we get it. It's easy to ignore the warning lights on your dashboard, especially that stupid check engine light. A failing ABS control module can cause a number of lights to go on, including the traction control indicator and brake indicator. It also can trigger an ABS warning light. So, I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but when your car illuminates the letters “ABS,” it’s not complimenting your six pack. Get back in the gym, and get your brake system serviced.
Hopefully, you don’t have to figure this one out the hard way. But if you slam on the brakes, and your wheels lock up and you skid...hopefully, you're okay, but your car's braking system isn't. If this happens, you’ve got an issue with your ABS system, and quite possibly the control module.
If the ABS control module is acting up, it’s going to send the wrong information to the brake system. As a result, you might end up with your brake pedal pulsating at random times while you drive. Massage chairs are great. Massage brake pedals? Yeah, not so much.Get a Quote 12-Month | 12,000-Mile Warranty
Time to test your reading comprehension. What is ABS? What are brakes? Are they important?
That last one’s a rhetorical question…hopefully. Brakes are the most important safety feature in your car, so you better treat them as such. If your ABS control module needs replacing, then your car won’t act properly if you have to slam on your brakes. So, get the replacement, and get it done soon.
