Most likely it is slight imperfections in the rotors.
there may only be rusty spots in the rotors, or slight warping. best thing is to have the rotors lightly turned on the vehicle if there isn't enough miles put on the vehicle to want to replace the brakes. if the pads are okay, bring it by somewhere like firestone and they'll turn the rotors on the vehicle...

When breaking, my break pedal begins to pulsate when stopping. Also, the steering wheel begins to shake when breaking.


Usually a sign one of the front brake rotors is out of round. It could also be something wrong with the abs but I doubt it.

When your steering wheel shakes at highway speeds when you apply your brakes, this is caused by warped rotors in the front.This is curable by having the rotors machined if they're thick enough or replacing them.Don't forget to install new pads or hardware also.I hope this tip helped!!!!

I would get the vehicle aligned first. Usually, a tie rod will cause the vehicle to shake when you apply the breaks.Take it in for an alignment.

you may have bad CV joints. Each halfshaft has an inner and outer cv joint. One halfshaft going to each front wheel. Check to see if the rubber boots are split and all the grease leaked out.

Well even though you had the rotors turned, they still could be warped and causing the car to shake at a high rate of speed when the brakes are applied. My suggestion is to replace the rotors asap.

Shake in steering wheel


I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.
