I think what you are trying to say is the ABS engages at slow speeds when it shouldn't. This is known as overactive ABS.

GM has a technical service bulletin for this. they want you to remove the ABS sensor. Thoroughly clean the mounting surface of any rust/debris. Apply a thin coat of di-electric grease to the mounting surface and reinstall the sensor.

You will need to remove the caliper and rotor to gain access to the sensor. It will be able to remove the bolt with either an allen head socket or a torx socket. Be careful when trying to pull the senosr out. Sometimes the can be pinched into place by the build op of rust. If it breaks off you'll have to replace the wheel bearing hub assembly.

In order to minimize the potential expense of having to replace both wheel bearings you can have the ABS system scanned. Your not looking for codes your looking for data so a high end scan tool will be needed. While observing wheel speed data during a slow stop note which sensor drops to zero first. That's the sensor you should try cleaning the mating surface first.

I have got a Suzuki Alto.
I been having problems lately. When ever it rains the car get flooded inside.
I keep getting a puddle of water by the back and front and under the seat of the passenger side of the feet.
It happen when the car is standing stationary at night and in the evening when it rains and by the morning there is a puddle of water inside. As attached in the picture.
The garage did a get wash but they could not find no leak and fixed the rim of the doors on the passenger side of the door too but it still keep happened and I went back the garage but they have done all the investigation but they still can't seem to find the problem for the water flooding inside of the car.
Can you please help in understanding what else could be the course of this problem.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello I have a 2003 gmc envoy 4wd had to replace front hub assemblies, brake rotors and brake pads. after the job was complete took it for a test drive and every thing worked fine. my wife drove it back...


sounds like the ABS kicked in while your wife was coming to a stop. This would be known as overactive ABS. It usually occurs under 5 mph while braking. It is usually caused by a speed sensor signal dropping out at slow speeds which makes the ABS module think that the wheel has locked up. It will then engage the ABS to unlock the wheel even though the wheel is turning. The brake pedal will fade and the grind of the ABS motor will be heard.

If this was an isolated incident it will be difficult to determine the source of the problem. It it becomes more frequent and predictable it will become a lot easier to figure out. Most of the time a scan tool capable of reading ABS data will be used. The vehicle will be driven while monitoring ABS wheel speed data. When the problem occurs the wheel speed on one of the wheels will drop out and then that wheel/bearing/sensor can be inspected.

Did you torque the axle nuts after installing the new hub and bearings to the proper spec?

Have you checked to see if the new bearings are still tight? with the wheel off the ground grab it at the 12 and 6 o'clock position. if there is any play than that could cause the problem.

let me know what you find or if you have any more questions.

if you are getting a shimmy in the wheel this is a good indication that your front brake rotors are warped and upon replacement the lug nuts should be torqued to 100 ft lbs or they might warp again,also the rear brakes should be checked for correct operation to make sure all the stopping force is not left for the front brakes to handle all by themselves,hope this helps

Brakes are pulsating and not braking normal especialy at slow speeds, I suspect ABS issue. Can I just disconnect ABS fuse if to expensive to fix? Can I take it anywhere?


try unbolting the front abs sensors and cleaning rust off from where they bolt to.these vehicles build up rust under the sensor and create a bigger gap
