Disc brakes are the standard for most cars. The ABS or anti-lock brake system improves their function, providing a safer ride by preventing the wheels from seizing or locking up as the driver applies the brakes. This ABS function reduces uncontrolled skids, particularly on wet pavement.

At Wiygul Automotive, we recommend every car owner have their brakes inspected annually. It provides technicians with the opportunity to stop minor issues before they become larger problems. This is especially true for the ABS Brake system repairs for Waldorf, MD autos.

To properly diagnose an issue with the ABS, service technicians use a specialized tool called a Controller Scanning Device. The device receives a trouble code issued by the automobile’s ABS Control Module that provides data on the possible problem.

To start, the first item we check is the fuse. A technician removes and tests it. If it tests OK, then he examines the fuse harness for corrosion. After spraying the contacts with a cleaner, he wipes it dry and performs a visual inspection. If the technician does not find corrosion or physical damage, he wipes the fuse clean and plugs it back into the harness.

Next, he examines the wheel sensors to ensure they are sending and receiving information correctly. The sensors are located next to the wheel bearing assembly and provide rotation speed on each wheel to the ABS Control Module. To fully examine them, our Wiygul technician lifts the car on a rack and loosens the lug nuts to move the tires without necessarily removing them.

He checks to see if the sensor and the connecting wires are physically damaged or if there are any loose connections. While he has the car on the lift, our technician also examines each wheel bearing assembly to ensure they do not have any damage that might interfere with the wheel sensors. We replace damaged parts strictly according the manufacturer’s recommendation if needed.

Along with ABS Brake repair, our Waldorf, MD clinic also provides the following services backed by a 24-month warranty:

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

Each of our Maryland clinics offers a free visual brake inspection. It includes measuring brake pad thickness and checking the brake fluid level. If they discover any problem with the pad or other components, each of our clinics uses Brembo brake parts for their replacements. Brembo is a respected leader in the design and production of braking system components, and we are proud to use them in all foreign and domestic models.

So regardless if you need an ABS brake repair, brake caliper adjustment, or any other type of vehicle service, contact our Waldorf, MD Clinic today. To schedule a service appointment or if you simply have questions about your auto, call Wiygul Automotive at 866-702-8050.
