About ABS Control Unit ECU

The Sandero Dacia ABS Control Unit ECU is a clever and central part of the anti-lock braking system and crucial to its performance. A highly advanced computerised part, its function is to control your car's anti-lock braking system, making sure that it works properly.

Sensors on your car wheels monitor the speed at which each wheel is rotating and measure the amount of hydraulic pressure needed. This information is sent back to the ABS Control Unit ECU, which adjusts the brake pressure accordingly, stopping your car wheels from slipping and swerving. This action is repeated constantly and can be felt by the driver as a vibrating motion in the brake pedal. Ultimately, the Sandero Dacia ABS Control Unit ECU ensures your car can stop as quickly as possible without affecting steering and control whilst braking. 

If the Sandero Dacia ABS Control Unit ECU has a fault, the ABS alert light will show and the ABS will stop working. This will not affect your ability to apply the brakes, but because the automatic locking system has been disabled it won't stop the wheels from skidding or potentially locking up when you brake.

It's important to check your Sandero Dacia ABS Control Unit ECU as soon as you can if the warning light comes on and if possible don't use your car in rainy conditions when the risk of swerving is high and the braking distance dramatically increased.

If the ABS warning light shows; the brakes are not working; or the brake pedal is really stiff, these are signs that you need to speak to your mechanic and will potentially need to replace your Sandero Dacia ABS Control Unit ECU.  

Dacia trivia

  • Currently, Dacia has only about 2% of the UK car market, but the company is still one of the biggest producers of cars in the whole of Europe. In terms of plant size, the Mioveni factory is the fifth biggest car factory in Europe.
  • The Dacia 1410 was an attempt to break into the minivan market, but it kept not quite making it to production. After adding front headlights from a Nissan Primera, the 1410 proved too odd for motorists, and the production run only lasted for two years before it was cancelled in 2006.
  • The 1989 revolution in Romania saw the newest Dacia called the 1325 Liberta, and it stayed in production right up to 1999.
  • Between 1983 and 1985, Brits could buy one of three Dacia models. The Duster, the 1310 pickup, and the Denem. For a while, the Denem was the cheapest new car in the whole of the UK.
  • Dacia cars are only made in one manufacturing plant, based in Mioveni in Romania. That single plant produces an impressive 350,000 vehicles annually!
