The most common reason would be a bad wheel sensor. the computer may have received a signal that one wheel was locking up and so it keeps releasing brakes until all wheels are spinning at same speed. this can get scary, your braking but car wont stop. have the abs computer scanned for any codes, the codes will tell you where the problem is, lets hope theres a code. otherwise you will need to wait until it gets worse or happens again. good day.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

Brake pedal went to the floor. have some brake left but it does not seem to be leaking fluid


Visiually check the rear breaks and if it is not leaking you the need master cylinder replace. When replacing a master cylinder don't forget to bleed for trap air also.

Abs system


it is a failed wheel bearing.the hub and bearing comes with an abs sensor and when the bearing could not be located by the sensor it will turn on the abs light and make the car skip when braking.check to see if your not missing any brake fluid and that the truck is still able to brake.if all is good then change the faulty wheel bearing.if you dont want to invest right away just disconnect the connector for the abs to the bearing.braking will feel normal and youll just have the abs light on.

ABS brakes shudder


YOU NEED A SCANNER TO MONITOR THE WHEEL SPEED SENSORS. THE ABS IS SENSING A SKID AND THE ABS IS ACTIVATED WHEN THIS HAPPENS. THERE MAY BE A CODE FOR THE HUB THAT IS CAUSING THE ABS TO ACTIVATE.

CHECK THE WIRES FROM THE SENSORS FOR BREAKS OR CHAFFING. AN OHM READING OF THE SENSOR SHOULD BE 850-1200 OHMS, AND AND A-C VOLTAGE READING SHOULD BE 100 MV WITH YOU TURNING THE WHEEL BY HAND.

ABS activating at each stop


most likely have a bad wheel speed sensor- you can either take it to the local ford dealer to have them tell you what sensor it is, or you can remove the abs fuse and it will disable the abs alltogether. your brakes will work normaly, they WILL lock up if you stop fast.hope this helps and good luck
