Anti-Lock Braking Systems
Vehicles equipped with Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) have the ability to turn the engine brake OFF if a wheel-slip condition is detected. The engine brake will automatically turn itself ON once the wheel slip is no longer detected.
The DDEC VI system will deactivate the engine brake system when the engine speed falls below 1000 rpm or when the vehicle slows down to a preset speed, depending on DDEC programming. This prevents stalling the engine. The engine brake can also be used with vehicle Cruise Control turned ON.
