Does the Chrysler Pacifica Have an Anti-Lock Braking System?

The anti-lock braking system (ABS) was invented in 1929 to keep airplane wheels from locking up on landing. No automobile had an ABS until the 1980s. Since then, the ABS has found itself installed in more and more new vehicles. The purpose of the ABS is to keep wheels from locking up during emergency braking causing the driver to lose control.

The Chrysler Pacifica uses an ABS of the most sensitive nature. The system is activated when a certain level of pressure is applied to the brakes by the driver. The ABS sensor notes the rotation of tires and compares the rotation to the other tires. When a difference in tire rotation is noted, the ABS releases the brake pressure on that wheel and reapplies it several times a second.

Displays are available at Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Roseburg in Roseburg, OR so that you can observe the ABS in action.
