Arming ABS while backing up?
OK brake experts, I have a question. Do you believe that there are any adverse effects that might result from arming the ABS while riding backwards? I know... what a stupid question ... and who would be dumb enough to do this? Well, I do. My garage is several feet above the alley behind the house. I regularly coast down the driveway backwards with slope assist fast enough (>-4 MPH??) that the ABS light goes out, signifying that the system is calibrated and ready for use ( right?). I haven't experienced any braking problems so far, but I am beginning to wonder if this practice might be screwing up the calibration process. I guess the answer would depend on whether the wheel speed compare circuit can tell which direction the wheel is spinning, which seems a little more sophisticated than the functionality of the system would require. Is my thinking correct or should I slow down backing out of the garage to the alley?
