Brakes have to come apart once a year, at least,
to inspect,remove rust & lube-do that,then get your
abs system codes & diagnose them

May be time to replace the rubber flex hoses & caliper
may be rusted inside, if the fluid is not changed every 2
years, since it was new,could also ruin the expensive
abs unit with moisture, for the same reason

Bad sensor in one wheel, they are part of the wheel bearing. Could also be a bad abs computer module, either way, not cheap.

SOURCE: Abs/Brake Light ON, although new brakes, ABS still works

I would suspect a speed sensor.

SOURCE: ABS brakes shudder

YOU NEED A SCANNER TO MONITOR THE WHEEL SPEED SENSORS. THE ABS IS SENSING A SKID AND THE ABS IS ACTIVATED WHEN THIS HAPPENS. THERE MAY BE A CODE FOR THE HUB THAT IS CAUSING THE ABS TO ACTIVATE.

CHECK THE WIRES FROM THE SENSORS FOR BREAKS OR CHAFFING. AN OHM READING OF THE SENSOR SHOULD BE 850-1200 OHMS, AND AND A-C VOLTAGE READING SHOULD BE 100 MV WITH YOU TURNING THE WHEEL BY HAND.

RATE ME, PLEASE

I had a very similar problem in my 93 town car. I ended up changing the Calipers, rotors, and pads. This stopped the grabbing, but still every once and a while the ABS light would come on and grip the brakes on me. I ended up pulling the ABS relay from under the hood.and the problem has stayed away. The only thing is that now i dont ABS brakes. Its a heavy car tho and i havent had an issue yet. Also, if you decide to do this, the relay way mis marked in my car, when i pulled the ABS relay, the Air shocks went out instead. Had to pull one at a time until the anti lock light came on, then i knew i had it.

Yes the rear has sensors, but seeing you just had front pads installed, I'd look for a loose or broken wire in the front first. I've installed front pads with the sensors and thought I got them installed right, come to find out they were not making good connection on the pads.

You had to leave something out, or you got a pad in backwards. The right front right,? it is not grabbing, just grinding, should be easy enough to spot, take the wheel off again and find the problem, Changing the pads should have nothing to do with the abs,. I don't know why the light would be coming on unless you have too much movement for the abs to work, or not enough. Check it out, hope this helps.

it could be the brake pads have absorbed moisture and on the first apply they grab. I would replace the pads with a better quality and see what happens. The noise your hear under the hood is the ABS pump working because the wheels are locking up .
