- How dangerous is it to continue driving with the ABS light on?
- What should I expect when I take my car to the mechanic next week?
- Safety with ABS Light On: When the ABS light is on, the ABS function is disabled, but your normal braking system should still work properly. Cars were driven without ABS for many years. It's generally safe to drive, but you should be more cautious, especially in slippery conditions. Without ABS, if you brake hard, the wheels could lock up, leading to a loss of steering control. So, avoid hard braking and remember to pump the brakes in a skid.
- Expectations from Mechanic Visit: The most common issue related to the ABS light is a faulty wheel speed sensor, which is a relatively inexpensive and easy fix. However, the actual cause can only be determined after a thorough inspection by your mechanic. Other potential issues could be related to the ABS module or connections.
