Tell me how you know if there was a problem with your anti-lock braking system

When ignition is turned off steering wheel feels hard to turn. When the ignition is turned on , steering wheel should become easy to turn, if it’s still hard then something wrong with anti-lock-braking system.

1. Warning light should illuminate if there is a fault with the anti-lock braking system

Nissan Micra:
When the ignition is turned to the ON position on the Nissan Micra, ABS lights symbol appears for a second or two and disapears after. If it stays and does not dispear then something is wrong with ABS.

The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) light illuminates and shortly turns off. This informs you the system is operational. If light comes on whilst driving or stays on after engine start, this indicates a malfunction in the ABS where a Nissan technician will need to check system. A fault with the ABS does not affect normal braking. ABS is used primarily to prevent wheels from locking under harsh braking
