Want to learn more about ABS repairs?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does the ABS system do?

The ABS, or anti-lock braking system, on your car is a super important system that prevents your wheels from locking up and therefore simply skidding across the road surface. The system is especially important when braking in adverse weather conditions, i.e. when the road surface is slippery due to leaves, frost or when there are traces of oil on the road. Because of this, keeping your anti-lock braking systems properly maintained is vital.

There's a couple of components in the system that can cause problems. In many cases it will be the ABS sensors that fail, which means the system will not receive the information it requires to activate the system.

What does an abs fault repair involve?

  • Depending on the specific job - an ABS repair may include all or some of the following steps
  • Mechanic will diagnostically inspect the ABS system.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the faulty ABS sensor and re-test the component.
  • If the ABS module is at fault, the mechanic will advise on the best course of action in order to have it repaired.
  • Mechanic will test drive and inspect the braking system.

Can I do ABS repairs myself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend an abs repair is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of an ABS fault?

  • The car's ABS warning light stays on permanently once the engine is started.
  • The brakes lock up very easily when braking on slippery surfaces.
  • The brakes do not respond as well as normal under hard braking

How long will an ABS repair take?

The time an abs repair will take will depend on the type of repair needed and a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace components of the ABS system?

It is rare that an ABS control module has to be replaced as it is an electric component that normally would not need servicing. In some cases, though, it can be that the module's electrical connectors have corroded or that the electrical wires might have been damaged.

Often its ancillaries are more likely to go faulty, like the ABS sensors which can malfunction when covered in debris or grease. Of course, if the ABS warning light is on, it is important to have your car inspected as soon as possible to prevent non-working brakes.

How common are ABS faults?

At least one of the ABS sensors is likely to fail at some point during a vehicles lifetime so its a common repair for mechanics to carry out across all manufacturers. ABS modules, as explained, do not fail that frequently thankfully but faults can occur of course.

What happens when the ABS system fails?

The ABS, or anti-lock braking system, on your car is a super important system that prevents your wheels from locking up and therefore simply skidding across the road surface. The system is especially important when braking in adverse weather conditions, i.e. when the road surface is slippery due to leaves, frost or when there are traces of oil on the road. Because of this, keeping your anti-lock braking systems properly maintained is vital.

There's a couple of components in the system that can cause problems. In many cases it will be the ABS sensors that fail, which means the system will not receive the information it requires to activate the system.

When should you consider replacing the ABS sensors?

You will only know for sure if, and indeed which, ABS sensor requires replacement after a diagnostic investigation has taken place. Therefore we advise in all circumstances that this is carried out prior to booking the replacement of any components.

How much does an ABS sensor replacement cost?

Cost for an ABS sensor replacement is on average £100, with prices ranging from £65 to £140. Ultimately, the cost depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement.
