Will bad bearings on the tire assembly cause the abs and slip lights to come on along with loud noise

A bad bearing will allow looseness in the hub and may allow the abs sensor to become out of range of the abs reluctor ring/bearing sender which will turn on the abs light/slip light.

I have a ABS problem with my AU Falcon wagon. I have a loud clunking feeling and noise coming thru the brake pedal. Sounds as tho it is coming from the r/front but I think it is coming from the ABS...

If fluid leaking from the master cylinder finds a way into the servo or booster it could cause an entirely different sort of trouble. Master cylinders are usually very reliable unless contamination of the fluid has taken place - usually indicated by a darker than usual fluid colour and sediment in the reservoir, evidenced when a strong light is used.

A loss of brake pressure could signal the master cylinder is failing (the pedal creeping towards the floor) or a brake booster problem, perhaps caused by insufficient vacuum or an air leak. An assistant is useful when looking for such problems and also when searching for noises.

The steady clunk being felt on the brake pedal might be something fairly obvious like a wheel balance weight just touching a caliper when the brake is applied. It is time to become a detective - I recently had one of those. One wheel had a second row of balance weights that caused no problems until I fitted new brake pads.

If a close and careful examination and a vigorous shake of everything by an assistant provides no clues, it could be worth checking the air gap between the ABS sensor(s) and the reluctors if they are the exposed type. Sometimes corrosion reduces the diameter of the reluctor and increases the air gap so the signal is lost at low speed. The ABS brain thinks the wheel is not turning and tries to operate the ABS on that wheel. Usually not a steady clunk but you never know, it could be worth checking...

go somewhere else
the sensor is at the end of the wire attached to the support or axle stub
the exciter is on the hub and will not be damaged unless something drastic has happened , like bearing failure

Loud grinding in front driverside brake when applied, the pads are only half worn and I can't feel any significant grooves in the roter

do u only hear the noise when braking? those vans r prone to wheel bearing failure. the noise will always be there and will get loude with speed. the other thing it could be is the backing plate behind the rotor. all u have to do is gently push/pull it away from the rotor.generally if the wheel bearing has failed and the van has ABS the abs warning lamp will come on from time to time the eventually stay lit permently.

Brake pedal vibrates while braking and doesent stop right away

There's speed sensors at each wheel. You may have got some contamination in front of one of them... sounds like the abs is trying to compensate for un equal speed at each wheel... and something may be blocking a proper read at one of the wheels...
