4 wheel disc brakes, just replaced front calipers and rotors, new pads and wheel bearings. ABS light has been on for over a year, but just before replacing the front brakes the driver side brake locked up causing it to burn the pads !!!
The problem is when I start applying the brakes to stop or slow down from a speed of 35mph the brake pedal pulsates ,now if i'm attempting to slow down or stop from a speed of 45-60mph the brake pedal pulsates and the steering wheel starts shaking!!!! NEED A SOLUTION !!! PLEASE ANYONE KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS!!

    For whatever reason the front rotors are not running true!!! Have a 'MECHANIC' check the rotor runout!
