ABS: Antilock Brake System (or Anti-locking Brake System) - enables you to steer whilst keeping the brake pedal full on. Can be felt as a vibration through the pedal when it cuts in. Also useful in stopping in a straight line if one side is on slippery stuff and the other on grippy stuff (non-ABS will tend to spin). EBD: Electronic Brake Distribution (or Electronic Brake-force Distributor) - alters how much of the brake force goes to the front and how much to the rear. Cars always have more braking on front as if the rears lock before the front then the car will spin. How much braking you can do with the rears depends on how much weight is in the vehicle so EBD dynamically adjusts this balance. Without it, the manufacturer sets up the balance so the rears don't lock when the vehicle is empty which is less braking than is possible when the vehicle is full. EPS: Electronic Power Steering - enables the amount of assistance with steering to be varied depending on speed and how much you turn the wheel. This means it can give lots of boost when parking the car whilst still giving you a good feel for the road at speed. As this was asked along with ABS and EBD, I think it might actually be ESP which is asked about. ESP: Electronic Stability Program - senses when the car is about to go out of control and can apply an individual brake to a wheel to help avoid the spin. Will not totally prevent the spin but means that it takes more to lose control. Often also used to give traction control where brakes may be applied if a wheel begins to spin due to too much power for the grip. N.B. many cars have TCS (Traction Control System) without having ESP.

yes. every car having ABS must have EBD system. basically EBD is a part of ABS system which provide braking operation to it. ABS sensors provide rpm readings of each wheel to ABS control system. after analyzing speeds of each wheel if any wheel is skidding controller gives signal to EBD to provide braking to that particular wheel.

How do you disconnect the ABS in a 1996 Lincoln Town Car

In a car without ABS, if you slam on the brakes, your wheels will lock and your car will skid. ABS prevents the wheels from locking by releasing the brakes if you start to loose traction.

abs as in URGHH IM STRONG or a.b.s? you don't it come with the car...if you wanted one but your car don't have it then go buy a new car have abs system.......kapi

Yes, but the entire braking system would need changed. It would be easier and cheaper to buy a car with ABS.

User Avatar

Because the car thinks that there's something wrong with the ABS system. Get it checked out.

ABS is the designator for anti-lock brake system

EBD controls and monitors the brake pressure on rear wheels enhancing drivng stability during braking.

User Avatar

It could be. It depends on the reason why the ABS light is on.

Abs are most effective when you need to pick up a car. Then there abs need to be used for the lifting of a MV.

User Avatar

Not dangerous. When ABS lite is on means that ABS is not working, brakes will work just like a car without ABS.

Put the key in your ignition, turn it so the dashboard lights come on, without starting the car. A yellow light saying ABS will come on if you have antilock. Also sometimes the car manufactures put ABS on the break pedal.
