So the other night I was driving back to Hays from the Wichita area and a deer ran out a little bit in front of me. I hit the brakes with medium force and they locked up briefly before I let off. Even though slowing down was important, I had to let off when I did because in the second or so that the brakes were applied the rear end started to come around. I have thought that the abs has felt a little bit off in the snow, but wasn't certain because I am not too accustomed to driving with abs. It took about a quarter to a third of the pedal force that it took to lock the brakes on my alero that didn't have abs. My question is if it is normal for it to be able to lock that heavily before abs kicks in. It never showed any abs lights. I waited to post until I got a chance to search and didn't find anything. It is something I can deal with, as I am used to no abs, it just caught me by surprise when they locked. I need to know if there is some sort of problem I need to be looking out for though.
