Does car have ABS?

How do you tell if you have ABS? Can you tell from looking at the disks? (it is on an NC fairlane which I assumed would have ABS, but I want to check)

Re: Does car have ABS?

Check for an ABS module under the front lhs wheel arch, secondly when you turn your key on do u get a red "Check ABS" light as it goes into selftest.
thirdly check the dash for ABS fuses or in the engine bay..

Or you could check the lazy way. On a wet deserted (private) road, doing say...60km/h...slam the brake paddle to the floor. If the wheels lock up.. no ABS. If the wheels don't lock,..have ABS.

Re: Does car have ABS?

also if you were to get under the car, you could easily see if there is a tone wheel on the rotor, but you need to know what to look for, and its a little hard to describe

So it would be easier to look for the ABS modulator etc..
