From faulty ABS lights to excessive engine oil consumption, Technical Editor at CAR Magazine Nicol Louw answers questions related to some of these common car problems.
He also explains some of the functions of your car parts.
The ABS, what it does is, it prevents the wheels from locking and the car skidding on a hard breaking. It also allows you under full breaking to still be able to steer. It is an amazing safety feature that should be on all modern cars. So if that light is on, it means there is something wrong with your system.— Nicol Louw, Technical Editor at CAR Magazine
What I would advise is to take the car for a diagnostic check where they can plug into the ABS unit and it will tell them exactly what code is still there and what it is linked to. My guess would be it is a wheel speed censor that might be on the way out or failing.— Nicol Louw, Technical Editor at CAR Magazine
