Abs engages at low speed on dry pavement

When turning into a parking space or up to a stop sign, the abs engages and fights back. being a cautious driver, I hardly ever slam on the brakes. this problem occurs all the time with very little pedal pressure.

Replaced battery and abs started acting up they engage on normal dry pavement under normal stopping conditions...no problems before battery change????


i believe the battery replacement is coincidental.the rear spindles of these vehicles dont drain water properly and as a result corrosion build up forces a white plastic cover on rear of knuckle against the wheel speed sensor which in turn rubs against huib assy.causing false wheel speed signals which engage the abs.simple to check.remove both rear sensors from spindle and look for evidence of rubbing.look CLOSELY its not always obvious at first glance.nissan has a service bulletin for this incident.contact local dealer parts dept. they'll know what you need.

My 2009 Chevy S-10 Blazer's anti-lock brake system activates when coming to a stop on dry pavement. The typical anti-lock sound is heard and the brake pedal pulsates. There are times when it feels like the...


check the rotors for scoring,worn rotors will "feel"like the abs is coming on due to the vibration caused.and will account for the extended stopping distance.

I expereince what sounds like the abs engaging when I turn


a bad wheel speed sensor will do that generally in the wheel bearing on newer models but not always if the sensor is external rust can build up pushing the sensor away bottom line the abs sees the difference in speed and assumes the vehicle is skidding or slideing and deploys generally only happens at low speed 7-10mph when stopping hope this helps

4 wheel drive lock up


hey charlie, 1st problem is 4 wheel drive being engaged on dry pavement. You should only have it in 4x4 in snow, or off road on sand, dirt,etc. Newer all wheel drive vehicles compensate for the tires rotating at different speeds, like going around a sharp corner. The wheels on the outside of the turn have a longer distance to travel than the wheels on the inside of the turn. This results in the vehicle feeling like it's jumping, hopping or jerking as you cut a tight turn. You can damage your 4x4 system, as the wheels are fighting each other, trying to turn the same # of rotations, and something can and will give (like blowing the transfer case). If your light is staying on after changing to 2 wd, it is possibly stuck in 4x4. To shift from 4wheel to 2 or 2wheel to 4, you should be traveling in a straight line, let off the gas, change in or out of 4x4, resume driving. 4x4 low range requires a complete stop to engage.

Antilock brake system engages on low speed stops on dry pavement on my 2004 Silverado.


The most likely cause is rust buildup under wheel speed sensors causing them to dislodge(lift up) from front hubs and read incorrectly. If recall has been performed to fix this problem...You may have to replace the appropriate hub in order to stop the ABS activation at low speeds. Let me know if i can help more.
