Unwanted ABS Activation on Chrysler Town & Country

When braking during low speeds (under 10 MPH), the brake pedal may vibrate and the ABS hydraulic unit may cause a rumbling noise. This is caused by a momentary loss of the wheel speed signal to the ABS controller. Adjusting or replacing the wheel speed sensor will commonly fix this problem.

Unwanted ABS activation when brakes applied and vehicle drops below 10mph. Didn't start until I had my bad engine replaced with a "new" used engine to keep this poor girl on the road (hey, it's paid for). Could a short or loose wire also cause this? I have trouble believing that it's not related to my engine install and just "happens" to start when it did.
