Abs light is on . brakes work just fine and the fluid is full


Hello, lets test that BMW M5 ABS braking system, OK. First, drive down a street with no traffic. Speed up to 30 to 40 MPH. Then slam on your brakes hard, if the brake petal is pulsating and there a noise like clunk,clunk,clunk,clunk noise. Your BMW ABS is working. If not, then the BMW ABS isn't working.


ABS system and what it does to your BMW. All it amount to is it doesn't lock up the braking system. It just applied the brake and release in micro seconds. This keep the vehicle from sliding side ways on wet roads, snowy roads, icy roads or even on dry roads. In other words, it keeps the front of the BMW in a straight line.



If your BMW ABS isn't do this, you'll need to have the ABS braking system serviced. GB...stewbison

When braking right before i come to a complete stop the ABS kicks in every time even when the roads are dry


it sounds like you have a wheel speed sensor dropping out at slow speeds. the abs computer sees a wheel go to zero mph and thinks it locked up so activates the abs will not set a code because computer thinks it is doing what it is designed to do. need to have someone drive it and monitor the wheel speed sensors while stopping and see which one goes to zero. a scan tool will be required for this that can read abs data.

Where is the abs brake controller?


An anti-lock braking system, or ABS (from the German, Antiblockiersystem) is a safety system which prevents the wheels on a motor vehicle from locking while braking.
A rotating road wheel allows the driver to maintain steering control under heavy braking by preventing a skid and allowing the wheel to continue interacting tractively with the road surface as directed by driver steering inputs. While ABS offers improved vehicle control in some circumstances, it can also present disadvantages including increased braking distance on slippery surfaces such as ice, packed snow, gravel, steel plates and bridges, or anything other than dry pavement. ABS has also been demonstrated to create a false sense of security in drivers, who may drive more aggressively as a result.[citation needed]
Since initial widespread use in production cars, anti-lock braking systems have evolved considerably. Recent versions not only prevent wheel lock under braking, but also electronically control the front-to-rear brake bias. This function, depending on its specific capabilities and implementation, is known as electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), traction control system (TCS or ASR), emergency brake assist (BA, EBA or HBA), or electronic stability control (ESP, ESC or DSC).

I have a 2004 saturn vue when i apply the brakes my abs comes on


It sounds like one of your wheel sensors isn't working, and the ABS is thinking that one wheel is locked up, so it's activating ABS.
