The other day my ABS light and the stability control light below it came on and stayed on until the next day for a while. I have never tested my abs in this car before, and since it came on and I have had a lot of electrical gremlins in this car, I figured I would see it it was a bad sensor or if I really didnt have ABS functioning at that time. I slammed on the brakes, but felt no pulsation nor lockup, just a smooth great stop. I tried it again and the same thing happened, thus leaving me wondering. Maybe I could have marginally slammed them on harder, but probably not, as my wife was complaining about how it hurt her tatas :silly: How does it feel in our car when the ABS works? I have felt it in other vehicles and think that ours can't be any different. I guess I should get out there and try it again since the light has gone off (duh, just thought of that). Could have tried to throw it sideways the other day to see if the stability control kicked in or not too, but wife would have had a spitfit (scared to death). Wish I would have thought to go for a jouride after I tossed her out at the house. Would have been really fun if it wasn't working. So, talk to me c-men and women.

I haven't "tested" the ABS, except in (1) actuall situation. I have never had to experience ABS operation with any other car I own. The brakes literally chattered. Everything vibrated. And it was all over in the wink of an eye. I was able to manuever the car, and it came to a safe stop. And I missed the guy who turned in front of me.
When they work YOU WILL KNOW IT!

You should be hearing that “grinding” sound and feeling that tick-tick-tick sensation on the brake pedal. (as a friend said “it sounds like you’re breaking your car”) when the ABS kicks in. It is very noticeable. I would have service take a look. You don’t want to take a chance on your system being faulty or more importantly hurting your wife’s tatas. :biggrin:

Yeah Danno, that's kind of what I have felt in other vehicles, as y'all described. I have heard people on tv recommend doing it so you will know when it happens and not get scared and let off the brakes. But for some reason, I didn't feel anything, nor did the wheels lock up. Really weird or really good I guess.
