Re: car shakes through the brakes and steering
Well, just because the rotors are new doesn't mean they are nor warped, do you feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in your seat? The other thing about Intrepeds is the inner TIE ROD ENDS very common, While your there check lower ball joints and outer Tie Rod Ends, have someone look at the tie rod ends located behind the engine while someone turns the steering wheel left and right in short quick strokes if you see loosness there you have to fix that problem.
If you feel the virbration in your seat the rear rotors are your culprit also make sure whoever does the brakes to clean and service the caliper guide pins make sure they are clean and lubed with lilicone grease made for that porpous and grease all points where the pads ride on the mounts.

OK, when the ABS module is unplugged, the same results. That tells me that the ABS system is not working properly.
Did they look into the master cylinder and other abs related components?
Any ABS codes on it?
If steering wheel shakes above 50 mph that's likely to be the tires on it, rather than a brake problem.
Have tires balanced and rotated and inspected for out of roundness that might cause vibration above 50 mph.
The problem lies in the front rotors. If the steering wheel is shaking without braking, then we need to break this up. If it's low speed(1-15 mph) then you have a tire that is coming apart. Highway speeds, you need the wheels balanced. If it's only while braking then you need to have the brakes inspected. If pad replacemnet is required, go for it. When they address the rotors, DO NOT TURN THEM ON A CONVENTIONAL LATHE. Honda REQUIRES them to be either turned on the vehicle(on the car lathe) or replaced. Then it comes down to quality. Always replace with the higher quality parts on these. If you do not, the problem will occur again, and the sme is true if you turn the rotors off of the car.
The shaking would be from your front rotors. First, loosen the lugs and retighten them with a torque wrench (not an impact gun) to the proper setting as described by Toyota. If the lugs are tightened unevenly or too tightly, it will artifically warp your rotors. If this does not fix the issue, your rotors are most likely warped from overheating, or being sprayed with water while hot, or from age. Get new rotors (and pads - always use new pads with new rotors), install them, and torque your wheels properly, and you should be in good shape.
