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 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 has a service bulletin for this local dealer parts dept. they'll know what you need.

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

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.
