Function of ABS

The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) regulates the brake pressure in critical driving situations:

  • During braking, e.g. at full brake application or insufficient tire traction, the wheels are prevented from locking.
  • Vehicle steerability while braking is ensured.

If ABS intervenes when braking, you will feel a pulsing in the brake pedal. The pulsating brake pedal can be an indication of hazardous road conditions and can serve as a reminder to take extra care while driving.
