ABS-Steuermodul
Explanation:
ABSCM müsste für ABS Control Module stehen. Daher mein Übersetzungsvorschlag ABS-Steuermodul. Ich bin mir jedoch nicht ganz sicher.

neutral  Rolf Kern: Könnte stimmen. "brakes down" würde ich mit "wenn es versagt" übersetzen.

  -> Danke

agree  Brie Vernier: Vermutlich, aber "brakes down" sollte wahrscheinlich "breaks down" heißen, also versagen
12 mins
  -> Danke Brie

agree  Ingeborg Gowans (X): agree with R. Kern, ich glaube, es handelt sich um bremsen, "brakes" down,: wenn Bremsen versagen

  -> Hm, jetzt stellt sich die Frage, ob es sich um einen Tippfehler handelt und "Versagen des Moduls" gemeint ist oder ob das Modul selbst "bremst", also die Bremswirkung auslöst. Danke für den Kommentar.
