The Anti-Lock Brake System or ABS on an automobile improves the function of disc brakes and increases the safety of both driver and passenger. As the driver applies the brakes, the ABS prevents the wheels from locking up or seizing on wet roads, especially when turning. It reduces the possibility of skidding, which increases a driver’s control in this type of situation.

Wiygul Automotive Clinics recommend annual brake inspections for every automobile. Repairs to an ABS Brake system in a Clinton, MD auto are invariably more expensive than following a maintenance schedule, so the inspections enable each technician to analyze and repair each minor problem before they become a larger issue.

Our technicians use a Controller Scanning Device to diagnose ABS issues found in each inspection. If something within the system is not functioning correctly, a trouble code sent by the ABS Control Module provides information on the issue. The technician then researches what is needed for repairs.

He starts by removing the control fuse. If it tests OK to function properly, he looks for corrosion issues on the fuse harness. He sprays a cleaning agent on the contacts on the harness, wipes them dry, and does a visual check. If the technician finds no corrosion or other physical damage, he cleans the fuse and inserts it back into the harness socket.

Examining the wheel sensors comes next. They are mounted next to the wheel bearing assembly and provide rotation speed for each wheel to the ABS Control Module if they are functioning correctly. To examine each one properly, technicians lift the car on a rack and loosens the lug nuts for all four tires.

He examines each wheel sensor and its connecting wires for physical damage or if they are simply loose. The technician also examines each wheel bearing assembly before lowering the vehicle for damage that could interfere with the wheel sensors. If there is damage, he replaces the sensor or assembly parts according to the car manufacturer’s recommendation.

Our Clinton, MD clinic also provides full brake support and replacement in addition to ABS brake repair. The following services come with a 24-month warranty:

  • Brake Caliper Replacement
  • New Brake Pad Installation
  • Brake Hose Repair
  • Resurfacing or Replacing Brake Rotors

Each Maryland and Virginia clinic offers a free visual brake inspection. If our technicians discover a problem with the calipers, lines or other components, they replace them with quality Brembo parts. As a design and production leader in brake parts and components, Wiygul is proud to use Brembo in both domestic and foreign automobiles.
