The ABS system uses a 3 solenoid system within the actuator. Brake fluid line pressure is controlled separately to each of the wheels, while the signal line to both rear wheels is controlled by the remaining solenoid. This model uses only 3 sensors, one at each front wheel and one mounted in the side of the differential housing.
