Chevrolet 1500 Pickup ABS Warning Light On and/or Erratic ABS Operation

(47 reports)

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate and/or the ABS system may activate erratically.

ABS would activate when not needed at low speeds, then quite working and dash light would come on. Replaced speed sensor and it solved the problem. -
ABS braking was working whenever it felt like it. Lights on and check engine came on. Failed and the ABS code came up. Replaced brake pads, calipers, rotors and the speed control sensor. They now are worse and can not drive the truck. When pressing the brake, the truck pulls so hard to either left or right(it chooses)and shakes violently, with brakes not stopping truck at all. What else can be the problem? Need input and suggestions please. -
Both front wheel speed sensors register as bad when scanned. i guess it's good(?) to know this is likely 2 bad sensors. -
Brakes get hard and growl a slow speed. -
Feels like a beach ball under brake pedal. Happens more when it's cold. Retards breaking and have to pump pedal to help resolve issue. -

I have owned this truck since I bought it used with 51,000 miles and the brakes on this truck have never been right. I am not impressed with the brake system, the front ABS sensors were bad, the rear drums needed replacing at around 100,000 miles ......... the truck still does not stop in acceptable manner, afraid I would have a wreck with another vehicle if I had to rely on stopping fast. -
