ABS, TCS and ESP®
Most vehicles on the road today could be fitted with some of the braking systems below. Your TEC 41 – Bosch Car Service workshop will know what braking system is fitted to your vehicle and can assist you should you encounter any braking issues.
Antilock braking system (ABS)
If the wheels lock up as a result of hard braking, the vehicle will no longer respond to steering action. ABS technology then automatically reduces the brake pressure so that the individual wheels do not come to a standstill and remain under control.
Traction control system (TCS)
TCS regulates the drive torque to stop the wheels spinning on driving off or accelerating. This guarantees not only stability but also steerability.
Electronic Stability Program (ESP®)
ESP prevents possible skidding if a vehicle gets out of control, as a result of cornering at high speed for example. It does so by acting on the brake or engine control system to stop uncontrolled swerving.
