I had the same problem. Exactly same. Turn the steering either left or right at that speed and it will always kick ABS. Its your lower ball joints loose. Mine were replace both sides and BAM... problem gone.

One of the wheel speed sensors are bad. It is hard to tell which one it is without a scan tool. You might be money ahead to have a shop with a scanner tell you which sensor is bad if you don't own a scanner. It needs to be driving with a scan tool on it while watching the speeds of the wheels. The one that is bad will read different than the rest at slow speeds.

My 2002 Chevy Trailblazer anti lock breaks system is kicking in on dry pavement when slowing down to stop? The break peddle is pulsating upon stopping?

Usually a front speed sensor/wheel hub going bad. is there a humming noise from the front end area while driving at highway speeds? If there is, try to isolate which side it is, and have that hub bearing replaced and make darn sure the axle nut is torqued to the proper spec, or it will fail. To many auto techs just tighten them up withan impact gun, and say its good.

I have a 2002 sierra gmc 4 x 4, when I come to a rolling stop the break peddle gets hard and you hear the abs working but it not stop you feel the pulse without the break or abs light coming on. I can...

This is a common problem with these trucks. You will need to set-up an appointment with the service Dept. at the dealership. There is an update for the ABS system. The function of this update is to reduce the sensitivity. When you get down to five MPH (with the brake applied) the ABS turns on (no light on dash) and you get the sensation of Sliding (braking is reduced).
This is assuming that the tires are the same size and pressure, And that there are no defects in the wheel speed sensors. Good-luck and please let me know what you decided to do and how it went.

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
