Why Does My ABS System Make a Noise When I Lose Traction?

Locked Brakes

When a driver suddenly slams on the brakes, the car wheels halt all rotation immediately. This is not necessarily good, because the vehicle's momentum will cause it to slide. The wheels then lose traction and the driver loses control.

Brake Tapping

ABS works when you quickly tap the brakes on and off again at high rate of speed. This assures that the wheels keep moving instead of locking up, while simultaneously slowing their rotation so you never lose traction completely.


When the brakes lock, the ABS system engages automatically. This causes the system to emit a loud noise every time you push the brakes too hard and lose traction.
