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 replace 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 in Cumbria 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.

  • 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

What are the signs of a bad ABS wheel speed sensor?

A bad ABS wheel speed sensor will often cause the ABS dashboard warning light to come on. Other symptoms may include a loss of traction control, and the vehicle may take longer to stop. It is recommended to get it checked and fixed by a qualified mechanic as soon as possible.

Is ABS light on a MOT failure?

Yes, if the ABS light is permanently on, it will result in an MOT failure. The rules state that the car will fail if the ABS light does not follow the correct sequence of operation and indicates an ABS fault.
