Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
ABS light activated, grinding/clunking noise from wheel area (believe front right) at low speed (less than 10 mph). Applied brakes, truck slowed to a stop fine and noise disappeared. Started to drive away again and at 10 mph or so noise came back, slowed to a stop again and noise went away. Reversed and decided to return home (300 ft away) and as soon as speed hit 10 mph noise returned, truck slowed again when brakes applied and noise went away but at 5 mph ABS activated and truck would not stop - both feet hard on pedal, pedal did not go to floor but truck would not stop and I hit parked car in driveway.

Check the brake light switch at the pedal. However an overheated/melted
bulb base means arcing to me. So, BOTH sockets are probably slightly
corroded & rusted. You fix that by scraping the terminals inside
the socket with a pocket knife or screwdriver. Clean with alcohol or
contact cleaner. If the new bulb isn't tight, and can be moved back and
forth by hand, bend the contacts inward slightly, but don't snap them,
they are spring steel. I was wondering when somebody would ask this
question. I fix them at least to once a month - not the same car, but
all GM's, and when fixed, they're good. Use logic if centre
safety/brake light works.
The remote start sounds normal. There are many different types and they are quirky.
You should scan for codes with an OBD II scanner. If the problem was in the brake light connections or is fixed at the pedal, erase codes. It could be, by coincidence, and in no relation whatsoever to this problem, that a front wheel bearing sensor has gone - they do that, and require a new hub assembly.

1. Check the tire to make sure there is not separation, local tire shop can do this. If no problem here, then...
2. Have your mechanic check the run out on the front disk rotors. I believe factory spec is 0.004", check the Honda manual to confirm. Make sure you have him check the replacement rotor run out after installation too. They sometimes get damaged in shippment.
I had this problem with my 1985 prelude. I found both front rotors we out of spec. Replaced the rotors and the problem went away.

I recommend checking the gaps against specification (sorry I don't know what the spec is, check with a local dealer) between the tone wheel and the sensors, and making sure that the wheel bearings do not have excess play. The bearing play can mean that the gap changes when turning a corner, either too much gap or not enough, and the sensor gives a different output from the other 3 wheels which the abs computer thinks is wheel slip and the abs is activated. This may only apply to the front sensors, your vehicle will likely just have one sensor in the rear, mounted on the diff head, but if it has 4 sensors then check out the axle endfloat in the rear also.
Hope this helps,
