Four-wheel ABS addresses a fundamental safety problem: The fact that average driver isn’t able to modulate pressure on the brake pedal in emergency situations without locking the wheels or lengthening the stopping distance.
The ABS relies on ABS sensors mounted at each wheel hub to monitor wheel speed and send that information to the ABS computer, although some rear-wheel-drive applications have the sensor mounted in the rear differential. The ABS computer uses this information to prevent the brakes from locking during a stop, pumping the brakes if needed.
When you’re recommending a replacement ABS sensor, be sure to recommend a sensor that’s engineered to match the OE performance in all conditions and situations.
