Default ABS/TCS/ESC needed for inspection?

My ABS control module needs to be replaced. GM has not found one in the past month.

QUESTION: IS ABS/TCS/ESC necessary to pass inspection? Many vehicles do not have these safety features. Is it possible start with a vehicle that has them, and modified it into one without?

Just looking for solutions!

Default Re: ABS/TCS/ESC needed for inspection?

Did you check Canadian motor vehicle regulations? In general, abs was and is an enhancement to basic braking. Design and safety wise, if abs failed during everyday engine startup self tests or when driving, abs disables itself without affecting the hydraulic braking system. In other words, before abs, stopping can sometimes result in one or more wheels locking up. Having abs removes wheels from locking up while providing steering control........ possibly avoiding a crash only to steer into a different crash. Abs in reality lengthens stopping distances for anyone not anticipating real world stopping on less than glass smooth roads that makes up a large percentage of our driving world. Without abs, we return to old school braking. As it is, if your abs light is on then abs is disabled and doesn't affect everyday braking because that's the default for abs failure. Whether or not Canadian motor vehicle regulations requires abs to operate falls on you to find out unless a Canadian Saturnfans member knows the answer.
