Ford Taurus Owners Manual: Hints on driving with anti-lock brakes

When the system is operating, the brake pedal will pulse and may travel further. Maintain pressure on the brake pedal. You may also hear a noise from the system. This is normal.

The anti-lock braking system will not eliminate the dangers inherent when: • You drive too closely to the vehicle in front of you.
