Why Is My ABS Light On?
If you drive a Ram, Chevy, or Ford diesel pickup, you drive a reliable truck. However, occasionally a light or notification will flash across your dashboard, and you’ve got to get it dealt with. The ABS light is one of the worst offenders; here’s what you need to know.
ABS stands for Anti-lock Braking System. Once a revolutionary design in automotive technology, every vehicle on the road today produced after 2012, and many before then, have this system equipped. In short, ABS is an automated version of “pumping the brakes” to slow down quickly, applying and releasing the brakes many times per second to prevent your wheels from locking up under hard braking.
During normal operation, you probably won’t even notice an issue. During rain, snow, or hard deceleration, however, your truck will have obviously less effective braking power and the danger of losing control, skidding, or hitting a car in front of you if multiplied greatly. You won’t lose your brakes, but it’s certainly an issue you want fixed.
