Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
1999 lumina with abs.
when I apply the brakes, I hear a clicking noise in dash above the drivers knees.
The brakes still seem to work fine.
SOURCE: 98 Chevy Lumina has front
I may be a wheel bearing. Try shifting the weight of the car on the front tires by turning the wheelslightly while driving about 30 MPH. Don't turn enough to change lanes, just enough to put the load on the outside bearing. It may quiet down in one direction. The failed bearing is generally the side that you turned to in order to make the noise go away. Say the noise goes away when you steer to the right, the failed bearing is usually the right one.
You can also check for play by jacking up the car and shaking the tire. There should be no play.

sounds like what is happening is one of your wheel speed sensors is dropping out when you slow down and this is triggering abs unit. it would not cut abs light on because system thinks one wheel is locking up just like when you are on ice. need to read data while driving and see what is going on when it activates.

SOURCE: ABS light comes on
Per your description, I would suspect you have a faulty wheel speed sensor. Take you vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto and have the codes pulled for free. Write them down and let me know what they are and we can go from there.
