The anti-lock braking system (ABS) on your Toyota Camry is responsible for electronically pumping the brakes during hard-braking situations where, otherwise, the wheels would lock up and cause the car to skid. The ABS system can pump the brakes for you much faster than you could pump them yourself which will allow you to brake effectively but still retain control over your vehicle. The ABS system rarely malfunctions, but when it does you need to have it serviced right away. Sometimes, the fix to a malfunctioning ABS sensor is simply to reset the sensor.
