Kia Cee'd: ABS(Anti-Lock Brake System) / Troubleshooting

Standard Flow of Diagnostic Troubleshooting

Notes With Regard To Diagnosis
The phenomena listed in the following table are not abnormal.
 
Phenomenon
Explanation
System check sound
When starting the engine, a thudding sound can sometimes be heard coming
from inside the engine compartment. This is because the system operation
check is being performed.
ABS operation sound
1)
Sound of the motor inside the ABS hydraulic unit operation (whine).
2)
Sound is generated along with vibration of the brake pedal (scraping).
3)
When ABS operates, sound is generated from the vehicle chassis due to
repeated brake application and release
(Thump : suspension; squeak: tires)
ABS operation (Long braking distance)
For road surfaces such as snow-covered and gravel roads, the braking distance for vehicles with ABS can sometimes be longer than that for other vehicles. Accordingly, advise the customer to drive safely on such roads by lowering the vehicle speed.
Diagnosis detection conditions can vary depending on the diagnosis code. When checking the trouble symptom after
the diagnosis code has been erased, ensure that the requirements listed in "Comment" are met.

Possible Cause
If the HECU detects trouble, it lights the ABS warning lamp while at the
same time prohibiting ABS control. At this time, the HECU records a
DTC in memory. Even though the normal code is output, the ABS
warning lamp remains ON, then the cause may be probably an open
or short in the ABS warning lamp circuit.
