Beside this, what does it mean when my ABS light comes on?
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) helps the tires on your vehicle to maintain contact with the road while you are braking. If the warning light comes on while you are driving, it means the ABS is not working properly. Your brakes will still work, but the ABS might not engage if you need to make an emergency stop.
One may also ask, how do ABS systems work? The components of the anti-lock brake system work together to rapidly pulse the brakes and prevent them from locking up the wheels when a driver slams on the brake pedal. This keeps more of the surface of the tire in contact with the road and allows the vehicle to be steered while it is stopping.
Simply so, can I drive with ABS light on?
In most situations, it is perfectly safe to continue driving with the ABS light on. If the brake pedal seems to work normally, you should be able to continue driving until you are able to take your vehicle to a repair shop or check out the anti-lock brake system yourself.
Can low brake pads cause ABS light?
Most commonly, this light is triggered by low brake fluid or an engaged parking brake. However on some vehicles, it can simply indicate a problem elsewhere in the system and can be illuminated immediately if there is an ABS fault.
