Antilock brakes do not increase the braking force.
The Mercury Mountaineer has hydraulic brakes, not air brakes.
If the ((ABS)) Light is on then it's a good thing indicating that the Antilock brakes sensor is in good condition. I too have a 2002 mountaineer
Antiliock braking system is the mechanism which controlls the braking of brakes, If the pedals are fully pressed it will oppose the motion to protect your braking
Anti Lock Brakes ABS = Antilock Braking System
Yes some Jeeps do have antilock braking system.
They make it so the car does not lock up the brakes and slide. Antilock braking system.
You may be hearing the ABS (Antilock Brake System) kicking in, this is normal.
Exactly what their name implies - the prevent the brakes from locking up.
ABS is antilock braking system (not 'air' braking system, especially seeing as air brakes are typically only present in heavy duty and some medium duty trucks). It engages and releases the brakes automatically as you are braking in order to prevent brake lockup and skidding.
An anti-lock braking system, or ABS is a safety system which prevents the wheels on a motor vehicle from locking up (or ceasing to rotate) while braking. anti lock brakes were designed so that when you do a "panic stop" or slam on your brakes, it will control your wheels so they dont slip or loose traction.
Disc brakes ( with small brake shoes in the back of the rotors for your parking / emergency brake )
You will be able to steer thru a situation because your brakes are not locked up into a skid. When your wheels lock up and skid you have no control of where the vehicle is going.
4 wheel ABS brakes are standard on the Mercury Mountaineer in 1999
It is quite likely it is the anti-lock brakes activating. When any wheel loses traction while braking the brakes will be pulsed so that the car will not go into a slide. When driving on slippery roads, you are suppose to pulse your brakes to stop. The antilock system does this for you.
Antilock Braking System sensors are mounted at each wheel to directly monitor the rotation. Look for the wires going to each wheel near the brakes.
Keeping the brakes from locking up will allow you to steer out of a situation.
It is a branch of engineering which involves Mechanical,Electronics,Instrumentation and Control Engineering. An example for Mechatronics application is the Antilock brakes used in cars where The speed of each wheel is sensed and controlled braking is implemented.
brakes are the braking system It could be a part of the control system It has a hydraulic system in the braking system
lateral runout. your rotors or drums are warped and need to be machined or replaced depending on the thickness. if your slamming the brakes this is normal its your antilock braking system functioning as it should to keep you from sliding.
Hey Brad No, They should be ok. GoodluckJOe
no only the EX had antilock brakes in 2004
