Rust under the front wheel speed sensors causes them to lift up sending a false speed reading to the brake controller. This has been a problem for quite some time. GM has a safety campaign recall for this problem. Call a dealer tell them about your problem and ask them to run your vin number to find out if it is covered by the recall. If its not covered you can fix it yourself.

Remove the front brake rotor, the sensor is behind it. Carefully twist the sensor while pulling upward on it. There will possibly be a rust ring above the o-ring on the sensor that will cause the sensor to break. After the sensor is removed cover the hole and remove the rust to the point of bare metal, clean the area, spray a non-corrosive primer on the area, wait for it to dry, use a heavy grease on the sensor and the mounting area. Reinstall the sensor and the brake parts.

When press break padel stering shakes

What make? What model? This could be caused by brake problem, worn front end part (bad ball joint can be very dangerous), or even something simple such a worn tie rod end. If you want to test these things, put jack under lower A arm on one side and just lift the weight off the wheel and put on jack stand. Have a helper wiggle the steering wheel while you look underneath for loose motion at some part. Nothing? Then grab wheel at sides and try to wiggle wheel. Now repeat at top and bottom of wheel. A bad steering damper can also cause this. If you are not experienced at front end work, have alignment shop check things out. A bad ball joint can break and cause you to lose control of the car. GET IT FIXED asap.

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.

Front end shakes when turn

Could be a couple of things. If it shakes when you turn but you aren't touching the breaks it could be your wheel bearings in the front. If it shakes when you are on the breaks it could be a cracked rotor or a sticking caliper. Any number of worn out front end parts like balljoints and tie rods could allow your vehicle to shake while turning.

Front end problems

hard to say what is the symptoms front end shaking or shimmying could be a tire out of balance, bad tire(broken belt, goose egg on the tire). is the tires screaming could be alignment problems. is it pulling to one side or the other could be a hanging break caliper (pulls to side caliper is hanging on) alignment problem (bent or broken tie rod ends) car shakes or shimmy when brakes are applied usually is a bad or warped rotor. the possibility is endless.
