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.

Both front wheel speed sensors register as bad when scanned. i guess it's good(?) to know this is likely 2 bad sensors.

very common on all three trucks I have had
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.
