Pulsating brake pedal is usually a result of a warped rotor or drum. Yes, you can disable the ABS by pulling the fuse, but I doubt this will fix your problem.

Try unbolting the front abs sensors and cleaning rust off from where they bolt to.these vehicles build up rust under the sensor and create a bigger gap

Your brake rotors are warped from excessive heat build up , Replace your rotors with a GOOD OEM part not that China junk

What's wrong with my ABS?


Random would be a broken wire. Read the codes to see which side. GM put hard plastic coverings over the wheel sensor wires. Follow it back, while bending and see where it is broken. Most likely the wire is broke there also. It could be several places in the harness.

I have a 2003 chevy silverado 1500 4x4 no engine or abs light comes on but when i apply the brakes the brake pedal pulsates and pulls to the right just replaced front brakes didnt make a difference. but if...


pulsates ARE normal for this truck it means abs is working.
if truck pulls to the right then the LEFT brake caliber is not working right check to see if rusted up... also install NEW calb. BOLTS never reuse old one if one is bent calb. wont slide correctly

When slowing down approaching a light the brakes work normally until just before stopping when the ABS kicks in and the brakes pulsate. Help!


One of the speed sensors are bad. It might be hard to tell which one unless you have a scanner. Do you ever see an abs light on?

I have pulsating front brakes when I come to a slow stop. Changed rotors and brakes, no help


Have to get your ABS sensors and Airgaps checked... May be as simple as too big an air gap on one of the sensors or as expensive as needing to replace a faulty sensor. I just went through the process of fixing this exact issue with my local mechanic.

When I apply my brakes at low speeds like parking I hear the ABS


Sounds like you are going into ABS when braking. This usually is for in wintery conditions when you start to slide, your vehicle uses ABS to slow you down and keep the brakes from locking up and skidding out of control. If this is happening under normal circumstances, you have a pretty serious brake problem. First check your brake fluid level at the master cylinder. If it is very low, it is possible to have air in the lines and could explain the problem you are having. In any case, you definately need your brakes and should at least seek some better diagnostics from an auto shop

My problem is similar, in that it started after hitting a bump


HAVE THE ABS SYSTEM CHECKED FOR CODES FIRST. I SUSPECT YOU HAVE A HUB WHEEL SPEED SENSOR BAD. AT FIRST THEY WILL HAVE AN ERRATIC SIGNAL THEN THEY SOMETIMES QUIT ALL TOGETHER. THE SYSTEM THINKS A WHEEL IS SKIDDING THAT IS WHY THE ABS ACTIVATES.

IF YOU HAVE A HUB WHINING THAT IS A POSSIBLE PLACE TO START.

Anti lock brake system


If the light is not on it may not be the ABS that is pulsating on slow braking but it may be that your have warped brake rotors, even if the rotors were replaced with the pads the new ones may be warped already, we always check new rotors on a brake lathe before installing them because we have seen this happen many times

Anti lock brake system


Good Day,

That's usually caused by a bad abs sensor and/or wheel bearing. The quick fix is to locate the fuse box, on that it should be on left side of the dash, only accesable with the driver's door open. Locate the fuse for ABS and remove it, ABS is now disabled, this will trip the ABS light on the dash, also keep in mind you will lock your brakes under heavy braking conditions.


Hope this helps
