Brakes & Brake Repair

ABS

Today’s braking systems are extremely sophisticated and complex. Almost all cars & light trucks have ABS, Anti-Lock Brakes. Sounds neat, but what is it? It is a secondary brake system, when all is working correctly, can save your life! It does exactly what it’s name says – it will not let a wheel lock-up when hard or panic braking is experienced or when you are on a slick road surface . A computer senses through wheel speed sensors when a wheel is slowing down rapidly & it will pulse brake pressure to that wheel to prevent it from skidding. When a wheel skids, loss of control follows, and accidents can happen.

This all happens in the blink of an eye & keeping these systems operating correctly takes good quality technicians using the right procedures. At East Mountain Auto, you & your family’s safety is paramount, so we use top quality parts, most of which have a Lifetime Warranty, and vehicle specific repair procedures provided by your vehicle’s manufacture.

If your vehicle has an ABS light on, we have the diagnostic tools & data to diagnose the cause of the code that set the light.
