Brake Pressure Modulate Valve
The Brake Pressure Modulate Valve is a part of your vehicle's anti-lock braking system(ABS). It is a device that is controlled by the electric signal that is generated by the ABS module. The brake pressure modulate valve regulates the pressure that is supplied to each ABS controlled brake in the wheels. The modulate valve has a set of solenoid valves, usually one for each wheel, that are controlled by the ECU. In normal braking conditions, the brake master cylinder provides a constant pressure to all four wheels of the vehicle. When the ABS system senses that a wheel is about to lock up, it sends the appropriate signal to the Pressure Modulator.
In response, the valve corresponding to the faulty wheel is opened or closed to either supply more pressure to the affected wheel or to cut off the pressure supply to the wheel. Once all the four wheels are back to spinning at the normal speeds, the ABS switches off, and all the valves on the brake pressure modulate system are made open again to supply an equal amount of braking pressure to all 4 wheels.
A faulty brake pressure modulate valve will cause your ABS system to fail, and cause abnormal braking behavior at low speeds. Corrosion and brake fluid contamination are usually the culprits in a brake pressure modulate valve failure. You should regularly change your brake to prevent your ABS system from failing. A visual indicator of a brake pressure modulate valve failure is the lighting up of the ABS warning light on your dashboard.
