ABS, ASR and ESP® – and whatever else your car may have
The following is a brief outline of the most important safety systems to enable you to contact a Bosch Car Service expert directly if you have a problem.
Electronic Stability Program (ESP®)
ESP prevents possible skidding if a vehicle gets out of control as a result of cornering at high speed for example. It does so by acting on the brake or engine control system to stop uncontrolled swerving.
Traction control system (TCS)
TCS regulates the drive torque to stop the wheels spinning on driving off or accelerating. This guarantees not only stability but also steerability.
Antilock braking system (ABS)
If the wheels lock up as a result of hard braking, the vehicle will no longer respond to steering action. ABS technology then automatically reduces the brake pressure so that the individual wheels do not come to a standstill and remain under control.
