ABS "upgrade"

Postby fpieri » Sat Apr 11, 2009 5:11 pm

Hi, i would like to know if somebody knows if there is an "upgrade" for the abs system (mainly the module i guess) in order to include traction control.

I have beed reading about ABS and Traction control or ASR and they share a common platform and work like in reverse:

while abs during a brake detects and reducing pressure to the wheel that is blocked, traction control try to stop the wheel that looses traction and is rotating faster than the other.

Mostly, abs and traction control come in the same module.

My cc is year 2001, has 4 wheel abs and the brand of the module is hayes (usa).

i will appreciate your help.

i have a full automatic locker in the rear end y and i want to add traction control to the front end.

Thanks!

Fermin

I have traction control on my 98 park avenue and DO NOT LIKE IT. Seems to rob too much power whenever it applies. The Buick is 3.8 V6 equipped and does not lack for power otherwise. Fortunately there is an override button to shut it down which I have used in stuck situations. It is not as good as one might expect in a wheel slippage situation. Proceed with caution.

They had a crew cab years before us too. That is where our Isuzu bed came from.

Hi, the front bumper needed a good paint and taking advantage of that i replaced the front grille with the new model one year 2009.
i spent usd 100 and other usd 90 in the upper part that is chromed (not in the photo)

it looks very nice.
they still produce the s10 in Brazil which continue to be the best sell mid size truck since 14 years ago

Bye
