When there is such a feeling, it is the brakes that needs total replacement.

Also you might have to check the master brakes for any leaks. And you need to check the bushing rubbers on the steering rack too.

Be careful and fix this on time.

Abs sensor problem check the sensors to make sure they are clipped in place the clips act like a ground if not clipped in place[where the sensor connects to the connector by the cv joint and strut] will set off abs light and the tc traction control light with the clip back in place lights auto reset/the other problem that causes the same problem is the rear bad filter/fluid bad/clutches bad or cv joint but most of the abs problems are the abs popping of the clip or being knocked off during a brake job

My abs, traction, and brake lights are on after a front brake and bearing job were done


By "were done" I am guessing someone else did the job for you. It is a common error at garages to forget to reconnect the sensors so that is my first thought but then you say you changed the front sensors, was that after the brake job and do you have 4 wheel ABS? The plugs for the sensors should always be cleaned if not replaced after a brake job in my opinion (high dirt area). More info will get you a better answer if you post back I may be able to help more/better.

When applying brakes on 99 Ford Explorer they feel good until just berfore stopping then it feels like a push back on pedal and a bit of chatter like the ABS is coming on. Doesn't feel right. No Problem...


I had the same problem with my 2002 Silverado. The grease seal on the right front wheel bearing went up letting grease build up on sensor . Disconnect ABS sensor wire at wheel one wheel at a time. Abs light on dash will come on but that's ok. drive and stop easy with wire disconnected until brakes feel normal. Then you will know wheel is the problem.

Noisey front end


first check the plastic splash panel under the front of the vehicle
they have a habit of breaking off the mounting pegs and flap from the air flow under the front of the car
the faster you go the harder they flap
abs and traction lights work off the same wheel sensors so there could be a broken wire to a wheel or a problem wheel sensor
wheel bearings are a growl or a disc brake scratching noise on cornering
cv joints click going slow and when on slight turns
the abs sensor is part of the hub so that brings it back to wheel bearings
best idea is to go to an accredited service center and have a proper diagnosis done and a quote and don't spend a dime until you have that done

Abs light comes on. had a person look at it and he feels its the pump. Is this the right direction to go in?


Good chance that the ABS sensor are dirty or the lead wires are corroded. The common ABS sensor that goes bad 95% of the time are the front ABS sensors and there located on the inner wheel hub.
Pull the front wheel off and inspect the ABS sensor on the inside of the wheel hub for any damages and the ABS lead wire to the ABS. Use Brake parts cleaner to spray any dirt that has accumulated on the sensors it self. At worst, your going to have to replace the sensor and that can be picked up at Auto Zone and they will have the instruction for you to get the job done.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe

ABS problem with GMC 2002 Sierra


its a low speed abs activation the problem is in the front sensors they need to be cleaned or replaced they [or one] probably has some corrosion on the sensor --[the 99 chevy tahoes had a limited recall over this issue and the fix was to remove and clean the abs sensor or if to corroded replace ] this problem doesnt set off an abs code or trouble light also sometimes the abs will activate by itself at under 4 mph without even touching brake

1996 Explorer is similar


It may be a calibration issue. The sensor doesn't know what is considered slow or stop., Yes,your right, a computer thing.

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.
