Antilock Brake System (ABS) - ABS works with the regular braking system by automatically pumping them. In vehicles not equipped with ABS, the driver has to manually pump the brakes to prevent wheel lock-up. In vehicles equipped with ABS, the driver's foot should remain firmly planted on the brake pedal, while the ABS automatically pumps the brakes to maintain optimum brake performance — just short of locking up the wheels. An electronic control unit (ECU) regulates the brake fluid pressure in response to changing road conditions and possible wheel lockup.
