myvi abs problem

What is ABS?

ABS stands for anti-lock braking system which as its name suggests, is a system that prevents the wheels from locking up (stops spinning) while the car is still moving. If the wheels are locked up and there’s an object in front, the car would just plow straight ahead regardless of how much steering input it receives. If you’ve ridden a bike with well-functioning brakes and just brake really hard, chances are you’ll notice the wheel stopping/locking up especially the rear but the bike is still mo

Why is my ABS warning light on? And what is a wheel speed sensor?

One of the warning lights in your car is the ABS warning light. ABS stands for anti-lock braking system, and it ensures you have complete control of your car in emergency braking situations. What does a glowing ABS warning light mean? Unless you see leaking brake fluid, the most common reason for the ABS warning light is a faulty wheel speed sensor. In fact, some car brands have this as a recurring problem. There are other reasons for failed ABS systems too, albeit less prevalent. Some refer to

No GR Yaris, no problem - maybe a GR Perodua Myvi is what Malaysians need

The Internet is a wonderful place for rumour mills (remember the hullabaloo surrounding the Proton X50?) All one needs is to put in a photo, and boom, people will start talking about it. Which is what we saw happen when Toyota Malaysia teased the GR Yaris. People went crazy over it, and that's fair - it's an exciting car, but not expected to be cheap. But if you really need some Gazoo Racing flavour, maybe this can inspire you. GR Perodua Myvi? Enter the 'GR Perodua Myvi'. Rendered by Mr. Kuruma

Penggunaan Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) yang betul

Situasi: Anda memandu seperti biasa dalam keadaan trafik sederhana. Tiba-tiba, kotak terjatuh dari belakang lori di hadapan anda. Refleks semulajadi anda mula bertindak, anda pun menekan brek sepenuh hati, tapi anda sedar yang kereta takkan sempat berhenti. Anda pun memusingkan kereta ke sisi untuk mengelak dari terlanggar kotak tersebut. Aksi mengelak halangan ini tidak akan berjaya dilakukan tanpa Anti-lock Braking System atau lebih dikenali sebagai ABS. Walaupun banyak kereta sekarang telah d

How to properly use Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

You're driving in traffic, minding your own business when suddenly a box falls out of the lorry in front of you. Reflexes take over, you brake hard, but realise you can't stop in time. You then swerve to avoid the rogue box. That evasive action wouldn't have been possible if your car wasn't equipped with Anti-lock Braking System, (ABS). Even though many, if not most new cars are now equipped with ABS, most car owners don't know how it works or how it benefits them. I've had friends come to me an

Kenapa lampu ABS saya menyala? Apa pula penderia kelajuan roda?

Salah satu lampu amaran yang dibekalkan di dalam kereta anda ialah lampu amaran ABS. ABS ialah singkatan bagi ‘Anti-lock Braking System’ dan ia memastikan yang anda mempunyai kawalan sepenuhnya terhadap kereta anda dalam situasi brek kecemasan. Apa maksudnya apabila lampu amaran ABS menyala? Melainkan anda nampak kebocoran cecair brek, satu punca paling biasa terjadi apabila lampu ABS menyala ialah penderia kelajuan roda (wheel speed sensor) yang rosak. Malah, beberapa jenama kereta dibelenggu d

Yamaha Exciter 155 VVA kemalangan di Vietnam! Tiada ABS punca?

Why the Perodua Myvi continues to struggle in export markets?

Before you brush this off as yet another criticism against our own domestic products, let us make it clear that the Perodua Myvi is probably the best point A to point B car on sale right now. As a daily car, the Perodua Myvi is close to perfection. It does its job so well that it’s quite hard to justify paying more for a Honda Jazz – does the Jazz have a built-in Smart Tag, or AEB? Guessed so. The Honda Jazz’s Ultra Seats is nice to have but how often do you even fold the rear seats? So what’s t

MIROS uji teknologi ABS untuk kapcai, guna SYM VF3i 185 LE

Teknologi Sistem Brek Anti-Kunci (ABS) bukan sesuatu yang baharu dalam dunia automotif namun penggunaannya dalam segmen motosikal berkuasa rendah terutama kapcai di Malaysia boleh dianggap 'rare'. Berikutan itu, Institut Penyelidikan Keselamatan Jalan Raya Malaysia (MIROS) akan menjalankan penyelidikan khusus terhadap teknologi berkenaan. Dan untuk tujuan itu dan beberapa lagi kajian berkaitan, MIROS mendapat sokongan daripada syarikat pengedar motosikal Mforce Bike Holdings Sdn. Bhd yang bertin

2 years since the Perodua Myvi came with integrated SmartTag. We’re still jealous…

If you’ve ever car-pooled with a Perodua Myvi Advance owner you would be left in awe of their ability to go through tolls without needing to lift a finger. The built-in SmartTag reader is the most thoughtful device ever to be included in a car and it has further given the Myvi a huge lead as the best value-for-money car in our market. I know what you’re thinking, when you purchase a SmartTag device, we were given a holder to attach the device to our screens. But the trend of breaking wind shield

Someone double parked and blocked you? No problem

All it took was 7 minutes and a group of Malaysians to lift a Toyota Wish that double parked and blocked a Perodua Myvi from coming out of its parking space. From the video, it appears that the Myvi driver got the attention of one passerby, who later got more help from other passersby. Amazingly, the group of men found lifts to lift the Toyota Wish and repositioned the MPV, allowing the Myvi to exit. Watch the full video here.

Japan too has a problem with cars driving against traffic

The problem of motorists riding/driving against traffic is not unique to Malaysia, although your Facebook feeds will give you that it’s a growing problem confined only to Malaysia.

你正在车流中专心地行驶着,突然,从前面的货车上掉下了一个箱子。你下意识地猛踩煞车,然后意识到你没办法及时停下,于是你只能转向来躲避这个可恶的箱子。 如果你的车子没有防锁死煞车系统(ABS)的话,你是无法完成上述的躲避动作的。虽然绝大部分的新车都配备了ABS系统,但大多数车主并不清楚它的原理,也不知道如何正确利用好这个功能。 我曾经有好几个朋友都觉得他们的煞车出了问题,因为在踩煞车的时候,他们的煞车踏板会有抖动的现象。每次当我要求重现一下那个情景之后,我都只能礼貌地指出,他们的煞车系统没问题,这只是ABS系统工作的正常现象罢了。 简单地说,在ABS系统侦测到煞车力度过大,会导致轮子锁死时,它就会间歇性地放开煞车。所以在ABS启动时,煞车踏板就会出现抖动的现象。因为有了煞车踏板的抖动,你的轮子就不至于锁死。这个功能之所以很重要,原因就在于如果你的轮子在煞车时锁死了,那么不管你再怎么转动方向盘,你都无法控制车子的转向了。 通过让轮子保持转动(就算在重煞车下),就算你不能及时煞停,你也能够操纵车子躲避障碍。看看下面的视频,了解一下在紧急情况下,ABS是如何帮助驾驶员的。 同时也要记住,在紧急情

Our Ativa’s rattling sound is fixed! What was the problem? - Long-term review #6

It has been about two weeks of ownership with our Perodua Ativa. How have things been? Well, the rattling sound we mentioned previously had gotten really annoying. Every time we drove over abrupt irregularities on the right side, the sound became more and more apparent. We needed to take the Ativa to Sepang on Tuesday to check out some Malaysian-made electric car, so we held off going to the service centre until Wednesday. About two weeks of driving with that sound, we finally checked in at the

My car is making loud noises when I stomp on the brakes, is something wrong with my ABS?

Although ABS has been around for years, many still do not understand how ABS actually works. It is generally known that ABS has something to do with the car brakes during heavy braking, but the common misconception is that it helps you brake better. It doesn’t, let us explain. ABS stands for Antilock Braking System. Yes, it has something to do with car brakes, but it doesn’t help the car stop faster. Instead, it works to keep the driver in control when under heavy braking. Contrary to popular be

New Proton Iriz - Is It Finally A Better Car Than The Perodua Myvi?

The Proton Iriz was conceived back in 2014 as Proton’s effort to counter the ever-popular Perodua Myvi. Back then, the Iriz offered considerably more safety equipment than the Perodua Myvi, but response from the market remained lukewarm at best. Proton updated the Iriz a couple of times, with the latest update being introduced earlier this year. Five variants are available in total, up from the four variants from the 2017 update.
