Understanding the ABS Pump
The ABS pump, or Anti-Lock Braking System pump, is a crucial component of your vehicle’s braking system. Its main purpose is to prevent wheel lock during intense braking, assisting in retaining control over steering and decreasing the chance of sliding. In a hybrid vehicle like the Toyota Camry XV50, the ABS pump plays an even more significant role, as it integrates with the hybrid system to enhance efficiency and regenerative braking.
Hybrid Automotives understands the intricacies of the ABS pump in the Toyota Camry XV50 Hybrid. Our technicians are well-versed in diagnosing and replacing this critical component, ensuring your vehicle’s safety and performance.

- Illuminated ABS Warning Light: If the ABS warning light on your dashboard stays on continuously, it clearly indicates a problem with the ABS system, including the pump.
