Power Brake Units -> General Service

The second type is a hydraulic pressure assist mechanism, which use pressure developed by an external pump (usually the power steering pump). Both systems act to increase the force exerted on the master cylinder piston by the operator. This in turn increases the hydraulic pressure delivered to the wheel cylinders while decreasing driver effort required to obtain acceptable stopping performance.

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.8 V6 GAS

System Operation

The Bosch Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) with Traction Control System (TCS) minimizes wheel lock-up during heavy braking on most road surfaces to improve driver control. ABS monitors each wheel's speed and controls brake fluid pressure to each front wheel independently and both rear wheels simultaneously.

A separate hydraulic line and solenoid valve for each front wheel, and one hydraulic line and solenoid valve for both rear wheels allow hydraulic pressure to be modulated, preventing wheel lock-up. The ABS can decrease, hold or increase hydraulic pressure.

The system c...
