Have youchecked the speed sensors on your front tires. Are your brake pads good? Did your caliper come lose?

SOURCE: rubbing or grinding noise in steering wheel

Hi, this could be a combination of many issues. i would check the following.

Check the strut mounts. there could be some damage here concerning the mounts. i would also check the control arm bushings as well. check for damage here. I would also inspect the CCV half Shaft as well. this is a known problem spot(re manufactured)CCT.

The last problem spot here will be the actual wheel bearings in the front. they may be worn or dry. this could cause the symptoms you stated as well.

you will find the issue in one or all of the above problem spots stated.

Please rate and god bless:)

Anti-lock function on brakes is triggered by applying brakes while steering wheel is turned hard over

Sounds like you are losing wheel speed signal when under hard turns. This is commonly caused by the harness at or near the wheel speed sensor has a bad connection of there may be a break in the wiring that intermittently loses signal to the ABS module and causes the anti-lock function to happen, (loss of wheel speed is like wheel skid as far as the ABS module is concerned) It is usually necessary to have a scan tool to monitor the data and read codes on the ABS system. You may have to take vehicle to shop that is capable of diagnosing the problem.

How do l use the ABS function and when does it get used

The ABS function is entirely automatic and comes into action when one wheel looses traction under brakes. It releases the pressure to the brake on that wheel allowing it to turn and then reapplies pressure to the brakes This action will occur many times a minute and all you might feel is a pulsation of the brake pedal as the pressure is released and applied by the abs unit. It is fitted to give you steering ability under brakes as the wheels do not lock up but are allowed to keep turning and so prevents skids allowing you to steer around what you would otherwise hit.. Do not fall for the bull dust that you stop quicker( shorter distance) as this only applies to dry hard surface. ON loose surface ,ice,grass etc you will in effect use more distance to stop in a panic situation.

ABS and power steering light is constantly on

Hi. The only link between abs and power steering that springs to mind is the steering wheel angle sensor but you really need at least a code read of the systems as the faults may be unrelated. I think spending a few quid at the local garage and getting a proper insite into what is going on will be money well spent. The pedal vibration will probably turn out to be the abs activating on low speed braking as it is seeing a low speed signal from one wheel sensor. This can be caused by an abs speed sensor being improperly gapped or a damaged sensor pick up ring among other things, Again without some real details or codes from the ecu its hard to give a real diagnosis. A visual inspection of the wheel sensors and pick up rings may reveal something - you don't need to know exactly what your looking at just that they all look the same and clean, no missing teeth on the pick up rings or cracks. If you get at least a code read and post the results we might be able to delve a little deeper.

2009 Dodge Caliber - The ABS & Brake Light came on as well as the feeling/sensation of the brake being applied very hard for a split second.

take it to an accredited brake specialist shop
I suspect that the brake booster is becoming defective and the small application to the pedal causes excessive booster reaction
the abs section only maintains applied brake fluid pressure as set by the position of the pedal
that is to maintain the pressure as the stopping and start movement of a skidding wheel opens and closes a valve to that wheel /s
if you are on ice that sudden hard braking will cause the wheels to lock and immediately the abs cuts in to allow the wheels to turn and then to allow brake action to be reapplied
if the abs is working under brakes you will get a pulsating feeling under your foot as the fluid pressure is alternation between full on and released by the abs valves

Brake chatter

If you hear the moan of the abs pump that you have a condition known as overactive abs. Especial if you feel it kick in under 5mph. What is happening is a signal from a wheel speed sensor is dropping out at slow speeds fooling the abs module into thinking the wheel has locked up. The abs module responds by activating the abs system in order to unlock the wheel. If you don't hear the moan of the abs pump than you have either a warped rotor. If you feel it more in the steering wheel than its the fronts that are warped. If you feel it more in the seat of the car than its the rears that are warped. It make no difference when parts where replaced. If the wheels are not properly torqued or the hubs are rusty than a rotor will warp in a heartbeat! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Apply brakes at low speed I get a noise and then the brake get hard and you can push the brake down lose your brakes but works fine for a hi speed stop

it sounds as though you are expierencing flase abs activation. this is common on gm (and ford) trucks. this is caused by rust getting underneath the front wheel speed sensors, betwen the sensor and hub mounting surface. the rust opushes the sensor away from the tone ring making it lose sight of it, forcing the abs to engage as it suspect the wheel is locked up @ 0 mph. the vehicle may have a tendancy to have a very slight pull to the opposite side that is affected. meaning if i break @ a slow speed, hands off wheel (be careful :) ) it may pull to the left @ first slightly, this would indicate the right front sensor has lost its signal...if you do not have a can start by carefuly removing the front sensors, cleaning the rust off the mounting surface, then reinstalling with somedielectric greese on the sensor oring and mounting carefule pulling sensor out of hub as it is plastic and may break, try turning left to right veryslightly, working back and forth and it will come out..if it break, you will have to pick out the pieces, not dropping any pieces into the hub asm, if this happens, the hub is junk and very expensive to careful, good luck

ps 4 thumbs up would help me the same as i help you...thanks!

Pulsing sound and feel from wheels

Ok, if the wheel bearing assembly was installed incorrectly the wheel would wobble and you would have a disconcerting feeling in the steering wheel. The rotors have to be within factory specs to be turned safely. What I would do is have the rotors checked with a micrometer and replaced.

2001 chevy silverado anti lock brakes

You most likely have a wheel speed sensor dropping out this would make abs system think one wheel is locking up and therefore activate. this usually will happen rt before you stop at around 5mph or so.Also if you have bigger tires than factory and have not had abs programmed for this size it can aggravate it
