My breaks pulse when I stop. They fell like they might not stop the car. If I pulse the peddle it helps. Almost like the engine needs more time to wind down so the car doesnt jump forward after stopping. I do have abs and know that pulsing the breaks is wrong, but its the only way to eliminate the shaky stop. I have new pads and the rotters are not warped and were turned 6 months ago. What could be the problem?

Re: 2002 crystler pt cruiser pulsing breaks
Yes the rotors may only be 6 mo old, but it does not mean they didn't become warped in this little bit of time! try to think back if u had to slam on the brakes at some time to avoid some thing and hitting a big puddle of water and then hitting the brakes hard can warp them easily, i bet if u have them checked u will find they have become warped! ( could also be the quality of parts, it does happen) good luck to u,hope we helped.

its a low speed abs activation the problem is in the front sensors they need to be cleaned or replaced they [or one] probably has some corrosion on the sensor --[the 99 chevy tahoes had a limited recall over this issue and the fix was to remove and clean the abs sensor or if to corroded replace ] this problem doesnt set off an abs code or trouble light also sometimes the abs will activate by itself at under 4 mph without even touching brake
Does the abs light come on when pulsating? if yes then maybe you have a bad ABS sensor or it just the sensors cleaned . Where they turned under spec .which means more likely to heat up and warp or crack
drive the car apply slowly the emergency brake you gonna brake with the rear only if you fell the pulse its our rear drum that warp be carefull when applying the emergency try to hold the release handle at the same time if no pulse change our front rotor there nothing else that can pulse when you brake hope it help fixya our post thanks pierre
