Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Service & Diagnostics: Stop with Confidence at Cooper’s Automotive Services

Your safety is our priority. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is a crucial safety feature that helps you maintain control during hard braking or on slippery surfaces. At Cooper’s Automotive Services, our expert technicians specialize in comprehensive ABS diagnostics and repair for all makes and models of cars and trucks. Don’t let a malfunctioning ABS put your safety at risk. Trust our team to keep your brakes performing at their peak, ensuring you can stop with confidence in any situation.

Understanding Your ABS System

The ABS system prevents your wheels from locking up during hard braking, allowing you to maintain steering control and avoid skidding. It works by using sensors to monitor wheel speed and automatically modulating brake pressure to prevent wheel lockup. When the ABS is activated, you may feel a pulsation in the brake pedal. This is normal and indicates that the system is working as intended.

Anti-Lock Brake Service & Diagnostics: Ensure Confident Stopping Power

Is your ABS light illuminated on your dashboard? Experiencing unusual pulsing or grinding sensations when braking? Don’t compromise your safety! At Coopers Auto Care, we specialize in comprehensive anti-lock brake (ABS) service and diagnostics for all makes and models of cars and trucks. Our skilled technicians are equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and expertise to diagnose and repair ABS issues, ensuring your vehicle’s braking system functions at its peak performance, especially in emergency situations.

What is ABS & Why Does It Matter?

The Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is a sophisticated safety feature that prevents your wheels from locking up during hard braking. When you slam on your brakes, the ABS system rapidly pumps the brakes, allowing the wheels to maintain traction with the road. This prevents your vehicle from skidding and helps you maintain steering control, enabling you to safely maneuver around obstacles.

Our Comprehensive ABS Services:

  • ABS Diagnostics: We utilize advanced diagnostic tools to accurately identify the root cause of your ABS warning light or malfunction. This includes scanning for trouble codes, checking wheel speed sensors, evaluating the hydraulic control unit, and assessing the overall health of the ABS system.
  • ABS Module Repair or Replacement: The ABS module is the brain of the system, controlling the brake pressure at each wheel. If your module is faulty, we can repair or replace it with a new or remanufactured unit.
  • Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement: Wheel speed sensors monitor the rotational speed of each wheel and relay that information to the ABS module. Faulty sensors can trigger the ABS light and affect system performance. We can replace them with OEM-quality sensors for accurate readings.
  • Brake System Inspection: We’ll perform a thorough inspection of your entire braking system, including brake pads, rotors, calipers, lines, and fluid levels, to identify any issues that could be contributing to the ABS problem or affecting overall brake performance.
  • Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU) Service: The HCU is responsible for modulating brake pressure in response to signals from the ABS module. We can diagnose and repair any issues with the HCU, ensuring proper brake pressure distribution.
  • Brake Bleeding: Brake bleeding removes air from the brake lines, which can interfere with proper brake function and ABS performance. We’ll perform a thorough brake bleed to restore optimal performance.

Common ABS Warning Signs

Pay attention to these warning signs that may indicate a problem with your ABS system:

  • ABS Warning Light: The most obvious sign is the ABS warning light on your dashboard. When this light illuminates, it means the ABS system has detected a malfunction and may not function properly in an emergency braking situation.

  • Unusual Braking Sensations: If you feel pulsing, grinding, or vibrations in the brake pedal when braking, it could be a sign of an ABS issue.

  • Longer Stopping Distances: A malfunctioning ABS can lead to longer stopping distances, especially in wet or slippery conditions.

  • Brake Pedal Goes to the Floor: If your brake pedal feels soft or goes all the way to the floor, it could indicate a problem with the ABS hydraulic system.

Regular ABS Maintenance is Key

To prevent ABS problems and ensure optimal performance, follow these maintenance tips:

  • Regular Inspections: Have your ABS system inspected by a qualified technician at least once a year or as recommended by your car manufacturer.

  • Brake Fluid Flushes: Old or contaminated brake fluid can affect ABS performance. Follow your manufacturer’s recommended schedule for brake fluid flushes.

  • Wheel Speed Sensor Cleaning: Keep your wheel speed sensors clean to ensure accurate readings.

  • Address Warning Signs Promptly: Don’t ignore any warning signs or unusual braking sensations. Have your ABS system checked by a professional as soon as possible.
