Problem Description and Possible Solution
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.

My ABS system is kicking in (even at low speed stops) and you can hear the hydraulic pump making noise as well as a grinding noise. My mechanic told me that this will cause my brake pads to wear out prematurely. Since the vehicle is still under extended warranty I brought it to Atlantic Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep in St. Augustine, FL. But, they told me that unless the ABS light comes on there is nothing that they can do. So...if they know that there is a problem, and they know that it will cause my brake pads to prematurely wear out, why are they letting me drive around in it? Doesn't this sound like a safety issue?
