I repalced the rear rotors and pads now im getting a pulse in brakes i push the pedel it seems stiff and pulses but if i pump them it seems to reset the abs and it will stop fine but some times it will stop some times it wont.
it seems to be a feedback from the abs but i dont know where to start to troubleshoot some one said it might be the wheel speed senor but i would like to be sure before i spend a ton of money on it

I am not familiar with your ABS as to how it is fed to the brakes but I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about. It sounds like your ABS is activating which is in my case the wheel hub. You will notice a wire harness coming down to your wheels and where that attaches is usually where the problem is. (problem being if I am correct when you brake you are getting a rapid pulsing rather than a smooth brake)
The rotors are grooved and you need to spread the brake pads from the rotor with a screw driver, if the caliper doesn't move, open the bleeder valve and spread the pads from the rotor, then you will need to bleed that caliper
its very easy. Pull tires off after putting vehicle on jack stands. There are only 2 bolts that holt the caliper on the rotor. Once you remove those bolts, the caliper will slide off. the break pad removal can be a little tricky, as you must depress a button with a screw driver in order to get he pads out. I recommend having two people to do this part. Once the old pads are out, us either a c-clamp or a pair of chanel locks to push the piston back in. Once the piston is back in, insert the new pads, place the caliper back on the rotor and reinsert the two bolts. I dont know the specs of the bolts, but be sure not to tighten them too much as you can damage parts to the brake system. It literally took me 20 minutes to do my brakes.
The Caliper PISTON Requires CLOCKWISE Turning to Open for Recieving New Pads, And if you Have Metal to Metal the Rotor Is BAD NOW and Will Need to Be Rerplaced. If you Need Illistrations on this I Can Email you Full Instructions. Im @ rejakwilson @ aol.com
