    Did you find a solution to this problem? Was it related to the brake job? Did you check to see if there were any codes stored in the ABS module?

    I figured out what the problem was. There was some dirt inside the wheel bering, where the abs sensor plugs into. No matter how much you try to clean it out, there will always be some in there. The best thing to do is change the wheel bering, the come with the sensors already installed. Hope this helps somebody, with their problem.

    Thanks for the update, I believe this will help someone out there. Are these the front wheel bearings you are talking about?
