    I have a 2006 Saturn Vue that recently started doing the same thing. Could it be the wheel speed sensor?

    it may just need new back brake pads check to see if your e brake is working if not replace brake pads on back brakes that may take care of the problem i will let you know tommorow

    My 2002 LSeries just started doing the same thing. No warning as far as the brakes needing repairing, but the ABS catch at the end of a slow, kind of cruising brake. (not a fast/hard brake). It happens at "the bottom" of the brake response.

2006 Saturn VUE AWD, same issue - only it was very intermittant and happened at very slow braking (like rolling to a stop sign) when it kicked in. Turned out it too was the wheel speed sensor. Although I had to take it to the dealership 2x, the first time they checked engine codes with no avail, and a visual inspection didn't show anything either. It was only when I happened to take it there on a day that it was happening frequently. They actually had to hook up the diagnostic computer, drive around, and get readings from the speed sensor to confirm it was shot.

Took my 2006 saturn vue to the dealer and found that one of the rear wheel speed sensors was bad. cost about $150 for the repair.

There's a service bulliten about that problem with rust build-up on the front hubs pushing the sensors out of posistion [ most common on the pickups in areas that use road salt ], it happens mostly at very low speed. The best way to find out the problem is to have the system scanned.

When i try to stop in the snow or rain my brakes kick back and make a funny noise and i can't stop at all. only when i use booth feet


Those are your anti-lock brakes. Either there is a malfunction, or you are applying to much brake for the road conditions, which is causing the anti-lock brakes to activate. If the road conditions are slick and hazardous, slow down and start stopping sooner.

Electric trailer brakes are kicking out due to anti-lock brakes


The ABS will shut off the trailer brakes if it detects a problem. It sounds as if the problem is in the ABS control unit, or the trailer brakes may not be grabbing hard enough causing the trailer to push the truck when you are attempting to stop. This sometimes can be corrected by adjusting the gain up on the trailer brakes.

What does the anti lock light on the dash mean?


The anti-lock light is indicating that your anti-lock brake system has a problem. Check fluid level. Could be a sensor, time for brake service etc, but I wouldn't wait too long to have it checked, just in case something serious. Anti-lock brake problems may cause a wheel or more, or all, to lock up in a panic stop situation. When was last service on brakes done?
