What is causing brakes to "kick back"? Is it the ABS module?

(1999 Ford Crown Victoria)
in Appomattox, VA on June 18, 2014
Like a previous questioner below, my Crown Vic is experiencing the brakes "kicking back" about 60-70% of the time, like when on ice but during regular weather. It has a grinding sound when it happens and pulsates also. Is this the ABS malfunctioning? And, if so, what part(s) need to be replaced so that I can inform my mechanic that we can get this issue resolved quickly. All insights will be appreciated.

How does your "mechanic" not know what the issue is? This is often caused by rust buildup on either the ABS wheel sensors, pulse wheels, or both.
