ABS stands for "Anti-lock Braking System". It is used on modern cars and vans to help drivers maintain control of the vehicle during hard braking. It works by not letting the wheels "lock up" and stop traction.

  • AdditionAdded 5/2/09:

Also, Anti-Lock brakes automatically "pump" the brakes for you, as necessary. That's why brake experts & your vehicle's owner manual will tell you DO NOT pump your brakes. It's absolutely uncalled for; that is, for the newer vehicles that come with ABS. On the older cars, before Anti-locking Brake Systems were made, pumping your brakes was the good & proper thing to do.

Jessica Alba has toned abs. Justin timberlake has ripped abs. Ripped abs are stronger than toned abs. So Justin Timberlake's abs are stronger, sexier, and look better than jessica Alba's abs.

The ABS light is on because there is a problem with the ABS. The light won't go out until the problem is fixed. As long as the ABS light is on the ABS will not function.

The ABS light is on because the ABS module detects a problem with the ABS system. Until the problem is fixed the ABS function will not operate and the light will remain on.

Every time you start and drive the vehicle the abs self tests itself. If there was a problem with the abs, the abs light would stay on until it is fixed. Also when the abs light stays on the abs system will not function.

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

The best exercise for the abs is the one for the lower abs. However, the most important is to practice daily in order to have strong abs and never quit.
