System of anti-blocking of brakes (ABS) – the general information and codes of malfunctions

General information

Typical scheme of an arrangement of the ABS components

1 — the Wheel sensor
2 — the ABS Relay
3 — the Hydraulic ABS modulator
4 — ABS system ECU
5 — the Diagnostic DLC 1 socket
6 — the delay Sensor

7 — the Control lamp of ABS
8 — the Wheel sensor
9 — the Rotor of the wheel sensor
10 — the Wheel sensor
11 — Rotors of wheel sensors
12 — the Wheel sensor


Sharp squeezing of a pedal of a foot brake on the car equipped with brake system of usual type, leads to blocking of wheels. Coupling of a protector with a paving is thus broken, and the car can go yuzy, losing controllability. The system of anti-blocking of brakes (ABS) (address to an illustration above) prevents premature blocking of wheels, continuously operating speed of their rotation during braking at the expense of modulations of pressure of hydraulic liquid in each of brake mechanisms.

Electronic ABS control unit (ECU)

ECU of ABS system is fixed under a forward overlay of a threshold of the right door.

ECU traces speed of rotation of each of car wheels, being guided by arriving signals from wheel sensors. When at emergency braking any of wheels it starts to be blocked prematurely, ECU gives out command for activation of the electromagnetic valve placed in the hydraulic modulator which, working, opens the corresponding site of a brake contour, letting out from it a part of working liquid in the tank and, respectively, reducing working pressure. As soon as speeds of rotation of wheels are equalized, the valve is closed again and pressure continues to rise. The cycle lasts fractions of a second on each of wheels and repeats until braking will not be complete. The design of system allows to correct pressure in hydraulic contours of each of four wheels. Actually the scheme of functioning of ABS is much more difficult, than it can seem, therefore originators of the real Management do not recommend to owners of cars to make attempt of independent performance of repair of system. In case of malfunctions it will be most reasonable to address to specialists of car-care center.

Hydraulic modulator

The modulator is established in an impellent compartment and equipped with the electromagnetic valve of adjustment of hydraulic pressure working at the command of ECU in contours of brake system.

Wheel sensors

Each of wheels is equipped with the individual sensor of turns. The sensor consists of a rotor (a ring with teeth evenly located on its perimeter) and a sensitive element in the form of the podmagnichenny coil. The sensitive element of the sensor fixes the moments of passing of teeths of a rotor by it and will transform received information to the electric signals which are continuously transferred to the module of management of ABS. By results of processing of arriving signals of ECU receives information on relative speed of rotation of each of wheels. While all four wheels rotate with identical frequency, ABS stays in a passive condition. As soon as any of wheels starts to be blocked, the control unit fixes change of an entering signal and develops command for operation of the modulator which is instantly dumping pressure of hydraulic liquid in the brake mechanism of the corresponding wheel.

Sensor switch of stoplights

By the signals arriving from the sensor switch of stoplights of ECU determines the moment when the driver squeezes out a pedal of a foot brake, at once activating ABS.

Diagnostics and regenerative repair

If built in in the car dashboard the control lamp of ABS lights up and continues to burn during movement, first of all make sure that the parking brake is completely released, and the brake system functions regularly. If all in norm, therefore, was ABS refusal. Thus in memory of ECU the malfunction code should be brought. At diagnostics and reading of codes of malfunctions the warning bulb on the dashboard will blink. In the presence of several codes, their indication will be begun with smaller number on increasing, regardless of time of their receipt. At car movement codes of malfunction are not displayed. Carry out visual survey:

  1. Check a condition of brake supports and wheel cylinders;
  2. Check a condition and reliability of fastening of contact R
  3. азъемов electroconductings of ECU and wheel sensors (see. Onboard electric equipment);
  4. Check the corresponding safety locks (see. Onboard electric equipment).

Regenerative repair of ABS falls outside the limits qualification of the average amateur mechanic.

Reading and deleting of codes of malfunctions

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Turn the ignition key in the situation OFF. Check an accumulator condition; work of system needs tension not less than 12 Century.
2. Include ignition and be convinced that the control lamp of ABS on the dashboard lit up. If the bulb does not light up, check a safety lock, a bulb or conducting.
3. Short-circuit a crossing point conclusions of EC and Е1 on the DLC1 socket. Include ignition.
4. If in memory there is a malfunction code, in 4 seconds the bulb will start blinking. The quantity of the first package of flashes means number of tens of two-digit number of malfunction, then the pause in 1.5 seconds follows and the second package of flashes meaning quantity of units of two-digit number is transferred. If at system there are other codes of malfunctions, they will be consistently transferred with an interval in 2.5 seconds. After the completion of reading of codes all of them will be repeated in the same sequence four seconds later. If codes of malfunction are not present, the bulb will flash each 1/2 seconds without variations.
5. Turn the ignition key in the situation OFF.
6. Check system or repair it according to the received codes of malfunctions.
7. After repair it is necessary to erase malfunction codes from memory. If in the course of repair disconnected the accumulator, all codes of malfunction will be erased automatically. Deleting of codes of malfunctions is made by pressing a pedal of a brake of 8 or more times within 3 seconds.
8. Remove a crossing point and attach to an aktyuator the technological socket.
