1.22. System of anti-blocking of brakes
The system of anti-blocking of brakes prevents blocking of wheels when braking, helping to keep controllability the car and to reduce a brake way.
If on the car the system of anti-blocking of brakes is installed in case you turn a steering wheel at sharp braking, it will have the same effect as though you turned a steering wheel without pressing a brake pedal. Therefore, be accurate at rotation of a steering wheel.
Though the brake way of the car with the ABS system of usually well brake way of the car without the ABS system, its size very strongly depends on road conditions and on many other factors. Therefore, observe the same distance with ahead the going car as though at you on the car the ABS system was not installed.
Also, as the brake way on the gravel or slippery road at the car with ABS is more, than at the car without ABS, on such roads it is necessary to move with the lowered speed.
At movement along the slippery road, press a brake pedal gradually and do not release it sharply.
Do not try to release a brake pedal to prevent blocking of wheels, on the car with the ABS system.
After movement along the ice-covered or snow-covered road clean off snow and ice which could gather around wheels. At the same time be accurate and do not damage sensors of speed of rotation of wheels and their connecting wires. Sensors are installed on each of car wheels with the ABS system.
If the alarm lamp of the ABS system lights up after start of the engine or when driving, it means that in the ABS system there is a malfunction and that now only the ordinary brake system functions. In this case, address experts for check of the ABS system.
During the work of the ABS system small vibration of a body of the car, a steering wheel and pedal of a brake can be felt. It is normal and does not demonstrate emergence of malfunction.
After start of the engine and when the speed of the movement of the car reaches 8 km/h in a motive compartment noise of the working motor and the howling sound can be heard. These sounds are made by the ABS system when conducting self-testing, and they do not demonstrate emergence of malfunction.
In order that the ABS system functioned correctly, it is necessary to observe the following.
Do not install on the car with ABS differential with the increased internal friction.
Establish on all wheels of the tire of the identical size and brand.
