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 system constantly active when brakes applied. Sensors were corroded from winter salt etc. I just pulled the fuse out and killed the system. They are a joke anyways and not required for inspections. A real bad design flaw that costs a fortune to get fixed. Not worth the money. Same yourself a lot of trouble and just pull the 15A fuse in the fuse box. I have driven for over 40 years without ABS just fine and don't miss them one bit. Just more Detroit planned obsolescence to get into your wallet.

    Abs brake system light comes on at times. Brake shoes and fluid levels are good. Light goes off when car is turned off and usually does not come on when started back. It might come back on just driving down the road and not using brakes usually.
