ABS vehicle precautions

(1) When the ABS-equipped vehicle is in emergency braking, the operation of the steering wheel is slightly different from that when the brake pedal is not applied, and the brake pedal is pulsed, so operate the steering wheel carefully.

(2) When driving on a slippery road surface, although the braking distance of the vehicle equipped with ABS is shorter than that of the vehicle without ABS, the braking distance is also affected by the road surface and other factors. Therefore, the distance between the vehicle equipped with ABS and the preceding vehicle must be the same as that of the vehicle without ABS to ensure safety.

(3) When driving on gravel roads and snowy roads, the braking distance of vehicles equipped with ABS may be longer than that of vehicles without ABS. Therefore, the speed should be slowed down when driving on the above road surface.

(4) When the engine is started or when the vehicle starts to drive, a sound similar to the motor will be heard from the position of the engine. If the brake pedal is depressed at this time, the vibration will be felt. These sounds and vibrations are due to ABS self-inspection.

(5) When the vehicle speed is lower than 10km/h, ABS does not work. At this time, it can only be braked with the traditional brake system.

(6) Tires of the same model and size should be used for all four wheels. If different types of tires are used in combination, ABS may not work properly.

(7) When the vehicle equipped with ABS is in emergency braking, the brake pedal must be stepped on at the end (as shown in the figure). It can never be operated by one step or one. Otherwise, ABS can not play its proper function.
