Sounds like you have a speed sensor with excessive air gap between the sensor and the pick-up wheel. These are usually sealed in the hubs. Check all you hub assemblies for excessive play. Excessive air gap will cause overactive ABS function.

Left front abs brake locking up on dry pavement and pedal goes to floor, also making a grinding noise almost like wheel rubbing on wheel well but its not. i have new brakes and rotors put on 2 months ago...


Hi,

You may have a problem with your abs pump. When the pump malfunctions, it causes the car to do what you are experiencing.


Hope that helps.

While driving ABS light came on and car went into a skid, what could have happened?


Abs Light:
If its glowing momentarily while driving in slick conditions then its normal operation..
But if it stays glowing even under dry pavement then there is a problem with your anti lock brake and traction control system..
It happens commonly of wheel speed sensor which malfunctions..
Try to access the data in the anti lock brake module to find out which one malfunctions..

It was the ABS system kicking in to try to keep the wheels from locking up. The squealing you heard was indeed the tires "sliding" across the surface in protest/resistance to your turning input thru the steering wheel. If you are not comfortable with that feeling go ahead and take it to the dealer/repair shop and have the ABS system checked/tested. (preferably the dealership)

Anti-lock brakes activate on dry pavement


First, is the ABS light on? Does it come on when it's doing it? Make sure the brake fluid is full, and the brakes are still servicable, ie, pads still have meat on them. If so, the abs control module or a speed sensor might be on the way out. This is a safety issue, and I would recommend getting the truck to a good mechanic to have it checked out.
