Brake System Service & Repair Information at Hanson KIA in Olympia, WA

ABS Light & Brake System Service at Hanson Kia, Just West of Lacey, WA

Schedule your brake system repairs at Hanson KIA

If you've ever had to slam on the brakes to avoid a surprise on the road and the brakes sounded like they were rapidly pulsing, then you've engaged the anti-lock brake system in the vehicle. Instead of the wheels locking up and you losing control of the vehicle, the anti-lock brake system (ABS) quickly slows the wheels' rotation instead of instantly stopping it. This provides for much shorter stopping distances while allowing the driver much greater control. If anything isn't right with this system, a red ABS light should appear on your dash, and that's something you should have looked at right away.

Why is the ABS Light on in Your Vehicle?

The anti-lock brake system is also part of the traction control system, which every US car is also required to have. These advanced safety systems use a computer that makes calculations based on information from wheel speed sensors at every wheel. The most common reason for an ABS light to come on is that one of these wheel speed sensors isn't working right. It will most likely need to be replaced, but check with an authorized technician to make sure that's the problem and that the sensor will need to be replaced.

Other Important Brake Services at Hanson Kia

No other system is more important than the brakes, so be sure to keep up with regular inspections and brake pad replacement as necessary. We typically look at the brakes when we do tire rotations with oil changes, but be sure to mention it to us next time your Kia is in for basic maintenance and service.
