ABS Light: Description and Operation
ABS AND BRAKE WARNING INDICATORS
The amber Antilock Brake System (ABS) warning indicator lamp is located in the instrument cluster. It is used to inform the driver that the antilock
function has been turned off. The ABS warning indicator is indirectly controlled by the CAB. The CAB will send a message across the PCI Bus that
informs the instrument cluster to turn the ABS warning indicator ON or OFF. If the 24-way CAB connector is not connected, the instrument cluster
will not receive a message from the CAB via the PCI BUS circuit. The instrument cluster will then turn on the ABS warning indicator.
The ABS Warning Indicator will remain lit during every key cycle until a circuit or component fault is repaired and the CAB no longer detects the
fault. After repair of a sensor signal fault or a pump motor fault, the CAB must sense all four wheels at 25 km/h (15 mph) before it will extinguish the
The Instrument Cluster will illuminate the ABS Warning Indicator if it loses communication with the CAB.
The red BRAKE warning indicator is also located in the instrument cluster. It can be activated in several ways. Application of the parking brake or a
low fluid signal from the fluid level switch located in the master cylinder reservoir will cause the indicator to come on. The status of the red BRAKE
warning indicator is not monitored by the CAB.
