Things to mind in ABS system resetting
One day you may find yourself in situation where the indicator light for your anti-lock braking system (ABS) is lit on your car and need to be reset. There are a variety of reasons for why the light may be on. You cannot access the anti-lock braking system with a simple on-board diagnostics scanner, because the two codes are different, and there are different trouble indicator lights for each malfunction on your vehicle’s instrument panel. However, for late-model cars, ABS diagnostics have become simpler. With the development of diagnostic technology, there are tools available to troubleshoot the braking system, and depending on how much you are willing to pay, you can find code readers that can read both OBD-II and ABS trouble codes. Either way, with a scanner, resetting the ABS system is fairly simple to do.
1. Locate the data link connect on your vehicle. It is an angular outlet made of hard black plastic, and it should be near the underside of the steering wheel.
2. Hook the diagnostic tool up to the data link outlet.
3. Turn the key in the ignition to the “Accessories” position.
4. Wait for the code reader to turn itself on. If it doesn’t, then you have a brake code scanner that needs to be turned on manually. Find the “Power” button and press it.
5. Read the code as it appears on the scanner. Make sure that all of the problems with the brakes have been fixed.
6. Clear the codes. You will find a dedicated button on the scanner labeled “Clear” or “Erase.” Press that button to wipe the trouble codes from the system.
Tips & Warnings
Sometimes specific models of vehicles have ABS issues that other models do not. Try to find a user group of people who drive the same kind of car as you. This will often provide you with more exact insight into why your anti-lock brakes need to be reset.
