Anti-lock Brakes -> Bonneville, Eighty Eight, LeSabre, LSS, Ninety Eight & Park Avenue -> Description -> ABS Warning Lamp -> Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) -> System Operation -> Wheel Speed Sensors
Vehicle: 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SSE 3.8 V6 GAS

System Operation

The purpose of the anti-lock brake system, Fig. and , is to prevent wheel lock-up under heavy braking conditions on virtually any road surface. When a wheel locking condition exists, the Pressure Modulator Valve (PMV) assembly isolates each wheel's hydraulic circuit, then begins modulation of fluid pressure according to wheel speed inputs to the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) or Electronic Brake and Traction Control Module (EBTCM). The PMV is controlled by the EBCM.

Modulation occurs by means of three ABS modes: pressure hold, pressure reduce and pressure in...

Drum Brakes -> Type 6 -> Precautions

During routine service operations the amount of asbestos dust from brake lining wear is at a low level due to a chemical breakdown during use, and a few precautions will minimize exposure.

  • Do not sand or grind brake linings unless suitable local exhaust ventilation equipment is used to prevent excessive asbestos exposure.
  • Wear a suitable respirator approved for asbestos dust use during all repair proced...
