Disc brakes are the standard for most cars in Alexandria, VA. The ABS or anti-lock brake system improves their function and provides for a safer ride. It accomplishes this by preventing the wheels from seizing up as a driver applies the brakes. The ABS reduces the risk of uncontrolled skids, particularly on wet pavement.

At Wiygul Automotive, we recommend every auto owner have their brakes inspected annually. It provides technicians the opportunity to stop minor issues before they become larger problems. This is true also for the ABS Brake system; repair is always more expensive than following a routine maintenance plan.

The ABS system requires a specialized tool to properly diagnose an issue. Our technicians use a Controller Scanning device to ensure proper function and determine the issue via a trouble code issued by the automobile’s ABS Control Module.

If the ABS indicator light is already lit on the dashboard, the first item we check is the fuse. If it tests positive, that means it works and our technician then examines the fuse harness for corrosion. He sprays the harness with a contact cleaner, wipes it down and does a visual inspection. If he does not find any corrosion or other physical damage, he wipes down the fuse and plugs it back into the harness.

Next, he examines the wheel sensors to make certain they are receiving and sending information correctly. These sensors are located next to the wheel bearing assembly and informs the ABS system how fast each wheel rotates. To properly examine them, a Wiygul technician lifts the car, and loosens the lug nuts securing each tire.

He examines the sensor to see if it is loose, and the connecting wires to make certain there is no physical damage. While the car is on the lift, our technicians also examines the wheel bearing assembly to ensure there is no damage that interferes with the wheel sensors. We replace these items strictly according the manufacturer’s recommendation for each model.

In addition to ABS Brake repair, our Alexandria, VA clinic provides the following services with a 24-month warranty:

  • Brake Line Repair
  • Wheel Speed Sensor Repair
  • New Brake Pad Installation
  • Brake Caliper Replacement
  • Brake Hose Repair

Each of our clinics also offer a free visual brake inspection that includes measuring the brake pads and checking the level of the brake fluid. If we discover any problems with the pad or other component, each of our clinics use Brembo brake parts. As a leader in the design and production of braking system components, we are proud to use Brembo in all vehicle models, foreign and domestic.
