Description & Operation of Abs System on Kia Sportage?

The details are as follows :----

The ABS system detects wheel revolution while braking and improves handling stability during sudden braking by electrically preventing wheel lockup. Maneuverability is also improved for avoiding obstacles.
The system used on the Sportage uses 3-sensors and 3-channels which control front wheels independently and rear wheels together. When the system detects a slip in one of the wheels, hydraulic pressure is applied to the brakes on the side where the slip is first detected. Any malfunction of the ABS electrical or mechanical components is interpreted by the self-diagnosis function in the ABS control unit. All malfunctions are indicated by the warning lamp in the instrument panel.
