manufacturers add new ones every day. The ABS module continuously monitors brake pedal input, lateral vehicle motion and the rotational speed of each wheel.

The PCM sends the brake pedal switch information to the ABS module over the HS-CAN while the
RCM sends lateral acceleration sensor information to the ABS module over a private HS-CAN. Wheel speed
information is retrieved by the ABS module using 4 active wheel speed sensors. When the ABS module detects
an impending wheel lock during a braking event.

The ABS module modulates brake pressure to the appropriate
brake caliper(s) by opening and closing the appropriate solenoid valves inside the HCU while the hydraulic
pump motor is activated. Once the affected wheel(s) return to the desired speed, the ABS module returns the
solenoid valves in the HCU to their normal position.

The ABS module has 2 self-test options, one uses a scan tool and the other is carried out when the ABS is
initialized (ignition ON). During either self-test the ABS module carries out a preliminary electrical check of
the system sensors and activates the hydraulic pump motor for approximately one-half second. During this time,
a buzzing or humming noise may be heard and a vibration may be felt in the brake pedal and is a normal
condition.

During the module initialized self-test, the pump motor check is carried out at approximately 10 km/h
(6 mph). Any malfunction detected in the system causes the module to set a DTC, disable the ABS function and
send a message over the HS-CAN to the BCM. The BCM then sends a message to the IPC over the MS-CAN to
illuminate the ABS warning indicator. However, the base hydraulic power-assist braking system will function
normally.
