Question about 2001 Audi S4

ABS Kicks in Prior to stopping...always

Similar problem. ABS always kicks in when slowing down on dry pavement. Cleaned front sensors and hall effect rings on half shaft. I have read that warped front rotors could cause this but my rotors seem fine. Rear sensors are rusted in plan will likely be to replace them but at $90 each I'm still hedging.

Hyundai santa fe ABS working when not needed or ABS kicks on for no reason.there is no light on ABS-TCS.

Pull all the ABS wheel speed sensors and clean off any metal or dirt you find attached to them (they are magnetic "hall effect" sensors). Check the wiring to them as well.

1996 Explorer is similar

Abs malfunctioning

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.
