Antilock Brake System (ABS) Repair Service Information serving Beaverton, OR

Chances are that your Subaru is equipped with antilock brakes (ABS) that help keep the wheels from locking up during emergency braking. If the antilock brakes stop working, an ABS warning light should appear on your dashboard. If all goes well, this is the only symptom you'll experience.

You see, the ABS system relies on wheel speed sensors on each wheel to determine when and where to operate. Typically, the ABS warning light is triggered when one of these sensors isn't sending good information to the computer. Fortunately, this probably won't affect normal driving. However, if the ABS light is on in your Subaru, it's much more likely that the vehicle will lose control during an emergency stop. That's why we strongly recommend getting an ABS light looked at right away by certified technicians like those at our authorized Subaru service center in Beaverton.

Why Is the ABS Important?

Simply put: ABS keeps your wheels from locking up. Before this system was commonplace, drivers were told to quickly pump their brakes if they had to come to a hard stop in order to prevent the wheels from locking and sending the vehicle into a skid. ABS does the exact same thing, but better. It pumps the brakes much faster than a human could, making the stopping time shorter. If you've ever had to brake hard, or apply the brakes on a particularly wet surface, you may have noticed the ABS. It's the vibrating, pulsating feel from the brake pedal. ABS failure means that your Subaru will be much more likely to have its wheels lock if you have to brake hard, which could put it and you in danger.
