    I assume you have an ABS light as well? Also are you running the factory size tires? Width profile and OD all need to be very close for the ABS to function correctly. Also swapping to more aggressive pads and rotors has know to upset the ABS system. Is this lockup, at partial braking force or full pressure?

Steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied at highr speeds like highway...


When your steering wheel shakes at highway speeds when you apply your brakes, this is caused by warped rotors in the front.This is curable by having the rotors machined if they're thick enough or replacing them.Don't forget to install new pads or hardware also.I hope this tip helped!!!!

High rpm at highway speed


No idea why you would drive that fast,
but 2800 is about right at that speed

Did you just get the car & never own one that
went to 2800 at that speed

Tap the brake around 55 & see if the rpm goes up,
indicating that torque converter lock-up is working

Don't do that at 70 mph

2000 Chevy Impala 3.8L- While driving at a constant speed the transmission will shutter or flutter between RPM's. If I back off the gas, the shuttering will stop likewise if I step it down, shuttering...


If it does it only at highway speeds...over 40 mph or so....you could have a lock up torque converter issue. (This locks up electrically for overdrive) Dissable the overdrive and see if it will go away. (drive it in 3rd, if you have a 4 speed) (Or tap the brake, this will dissable it also)

Severe Brake noise and shaking when applying brake at highway speed.


Sound like your front rotors are warped. Replace the front brake pads and rotors and that should take care of your problem. 4 thumbs up is appreciated if this helps.

2003 Nissan Sentra automatic When hard braking at highway speed, get pulsing vibration - tires/alignment/shocks or sturts


Probably your ABS brakes. Thats how they work, they pulsate so as not to lock up and go into a skid

What could be causing my 1997 Ford E350 15 pass.club wagon to have excessive vibration when braking from highway speeds 60mph & up. Not so bad at slower speeds? Ford Tech said brakes were good. No...


ABS------ Anti Lock Brakes will cause a chatter if applied with a lot of weight pushing it. An E350 is a big rig.
Might ask your Ford Tech about that possibility.

Speedometer


check for a connector not fully seated.

here's info

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
On vehicles equipped with 4-wheel anti-lock brake systems (4WABS), the vehicle speed signal is generated by the rear anti-lock brake sensor and sent to the 4WABS module. The 4WABS module sends the vehicle speed signal via circuit 679 (GY/BK) to all systems that require a vehicle speed signal input. Vehicles equipped with rear anti-lock brakes (RABS) generate a vehicle speed signal from the rear axle speed sensor. The generic electronic module (GEM) receives this signal (VSS_GEM) for internal use and then distributes it to the appropriate other users (i.e., the powertrain control module [PCM], speed control module, and speedometer).
Speedometer
The electronic speedometer (17255) receives a speed signal from the 4WABS module (if equipped with 4WABS) or the generic electronic module (GEM)/central timer module (CTM) (if equipped with RABS). RABS = Rear antilock brake system
