Erratic brake pedal with grinding and pulsating. Can act like it won't stop. Metal-on-metal grinding sound.

The brakes were worked on but this problem still persists. ABS light on, sometimes steady, and you can hear them activating when first starting out. One time they seemed to 'lock'.

abs coming on for no reason at 1 to 3 mph when braking
Around 5k miles ago the abs light came on. Now I know the cause

I talked to the Bosch engineer who designed the anti-lock brake system. He told me that one of the sensors at one of the wheels was defective - probably the LR. He said that was a comon problem.

light stays on and brakes erratic

My ABS light and the BRAKE light go on after driving for about 5 minutes and then stay on. The sensor to replace it is about $1000 (that is the estimate I was given). So I will just ignore the lights.

The ABS front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate or the ABS system may activate erratically
