helps you avoid skids caused by over braking.
helps you avoid wheel lock up.
should help you steer around an obstacle while braking.
All of the above.
3. The maximum leakage rates per minute after the initial pressure drop are:
1 psi for single vehicles and 2 psi for a combination of 2 vehicles.
3 psi for single vehicles and 4 psi for a combination of 2 vehicles.
4 psi for single vehicles and 2 psi for a combination of 2 vehicles.
5 psi for single vehicles and 6 psi for a combination of 2 vehicles.
4. ABS malfunction lamps are located:
on the driver'door.
under the hood.
