Antilock brakes are the latest and safer brake systems used on a lot of newer cars. These systems pulsate the brakes on and off in the event of the brakes being applied too hard. There are sensors on the wheels that tell a computer how fast each wheel is going and if one wheel was to suddenly stop, the ABS system will kick in and pulsate the brakes rapidly per second to help assist you with a safer stop.
Traction control, esc, dsc, forward collision alert systems and autonomously braking systems are all forms of advanced anti-lock brake systems. Traction control systems help you regain control of the vehicle by slowing the engine while applying the ABS. Forward collision alert systems use cameras, motion sensors and computer technology to help not only warn you the driver in case of an emergency situation detected, but also automatically works with the traction control, anti-lock brakes and or the steering system to even automatically help avoid the potential crash.
No matter which type of anti-lock system you may have, you will know you have an anti-lock brake problem by the various types of warning lights on your dash. Before starting your car with your ignition switched on, you will notice that the antilock, traction control, ESC and/or brake lamps light up as a self-check until the vehicle is started (most makes). If any of these warning lights come on and stay on after the vehicle is running, this means there is a fault and you need to bring it in to have it checked. Proper scan equipment is required to properly diagnose and repair these systems.
