If the new rotors were not allow to seat after replacement they will warp extremely easily. Easy to check. Remove wheel and check for trueness of rotor, a dead give away is if you see a blueish tint on the rotor.

2004 Chevy Aveo The brake pedal pulsates and activates the ABS system when the brake is applied at low speeds


check rotor and brake pads. also check fluid level. one of those 3 causing problems.
more and likely its the rotor. its cheaper to buy new ones for around 20-30 dollars.
warped rotor will cause the pedal to ..pulsate. and more and likely you pads are wore.
when getting new rotor always put new shoes on so the rotor it can wear evenly.

2002 chevy silverado 1500 2 wheel drive when appling brakes it pulsates and fells as if there is no real braking


The brake rotors are warpped [ the pulsation ], The pads may be worn out, and-or have a frozen caliper causing the loss of braking power.

I have 2002 silverado, the brake pedal pulsates and pushes back as the vehicle is slowing to a stop.I replaced the pads and rotors and the p loblem still exists. I now believe this isABS related.


Hello. What you are experiencing with the pulsating brakes and the brake pedal pushing back is the antilock brake system [ABS] working correctly. Joe

I replaced both brake pads and rotors on both the front and rear of my 2007 Jeep Liberty but when I brake, especially from a higher spped such as an exit ramp, there is shaking/pulsating in the brake...


The brake rotors need to be cut or replaced. There are high spots and low spots on the rotor, and due to this, the brake pedal will pulse when the brakes are applied. When ever brakes are replaced, the rotors should also be serviced.
