Look for a bad(broken/bent teeth) or contaminated sensor tone ring on the front wheels, check the front ABS Speed sensors too, for grease , looseness, etc

A bad wheel bearing could also give you the same symptoms. If the truck always pulls slightly to one side when when the ABS activates then it is almost definately a front wheel bearing.

Suggest you have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Also do you hear any grinding noise ? I have seen a bad wheel bearing cause this problem . Unwanted ABS activation locks up the wheel . and the lights come on .

check the fluid level in the brake master cylinder as it appears that the abs pump is running short of fluid to pump. Check for leaks at the wheels and broken brake lines.

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport, recently I have been having problems with the ABS light, I had new brakes put on, but my brakes still are not working properly.


I would have the computer checked for trouble codes first.
If the hydraulic part of the ABS is faulty, it will apply pressure to a wheel even if you don't need it.
It measures wheel speed to see when a wheel is spinning or slipping and applies brake pressure to that wheel or the other three.
Or prevents you from applying the brakes.

check the rotors for scoring,worn rotors will "feel"like the abs is coming on due to the vibration caused.and will account for the extended stopping distance.

2001 Ford explorer sport- The ABS indicator light is ''on'' steady


Try cleaning your ABS senors. They are located on the back side of your brake roters. The each senor reads how fast each tire is turning and if there is a big difference between the four your ABS will kick on.

Brakes


you may have to take the rotors back off completely and look for the baby brake shoes behind the rotors because sometimes they will hang up and give you some of the problems you are having
