    This is a common problem with the GM trucks. There is a TSB (technical service bulletin) on this problem. The ABS will activate at low speeds (less than 8-10 mph) and/or when turning, but not turn on the ABS light or set any codes. The front wheel speed sensor(s) need to be removed from`the wheel hub assembly, the sensor cleaned, and the bore the sensor sits in cleaned of rust to stop the false activation.

    I can't thank you enough. Does this also cause problems with the rear brakes?

    This could be numerous things? Have the ABS system scanned for codes.
