The corrosion causes a deterioration of the electricalswitch connection and can result in false illumination of ABS and/or the brake warning lights and/or the loss of power assistance because of no hydraulic pumpoperation. Loss of power assist increases the driver's brake pedal effort required for stopping which can result in extended braking distances.

Moisture can follow the electrical harness and enter the pressure switch connector causing corrosion and malfunction of the switch.
Dealers will inspect the electrical connections to the ABS pressure switch terminals for corrosion and install a shrink hose to the wiring harness to avoid moisture entering the connection. Pressure switches with corroded connectors will be replaced.
