ABS probs

Postby lanigan » Mon Feb 11, 2008 9:52 pm

My car is after developing a annoying (and possibly dangerous prob if left unattended), my ABS is activating when im slowing down to a stop, even in traffic, just moving about 20ft when i go to stop the ABS cuts in and releases the brake :x
Any body else had this prob? need to get it fixed before i going flying across a junction!!!!

That might be a simple enough problem..
Have a look at the ABS sensors on the inside of the hubs. If they get brake dust or other crap from the road in between them and the "steps" that they read on the back of the disc, it can cause the ABS to operate because it thinks the wheel is stopped. Give it a blow out with an airline or maybe clean 'em up with a wire brush. Hopefully thats all it is.
