This has been happening ever since I got the car but not this bad. For the past couple of months sometimes the break pedal will act like there is "low traction" and the pedal will start pulsating at very slow speeds (15 mph or lower). It doesnt necessarily effect stopping, BUT it is very annoying and there obviously is a problem. Not to mention the damn abs light has a mind of it own and is on 40% of the time... Im pretty sure ive made posts of this before but I cant seem to find them.

ALSO! ive been meaning to make a post about this. Does anyone notice when breaking aggressively to a sudden stop there is an annoying down shift that kind fucks up the flow of breaking? Kinda hard to explain but ive almost know to ease off of the break because I know a down shift is coming. The reason I ask is because maby its something with my tune? Dunno but im scared of the 3800 trans

Get the car scanned when the ABS light is on and see what the deal is.

Could be the O rings in the master leaking down on you, my friends 02 GTP had similar problems and after I replaced the master the brakes have been better then ever.

Yeah its getting worse. Especially if the car is facing down hill and I am braking. Really getting annoying. Any other suggestions?

Can Vato zone do this or do i have to take it to the dealer?

I had this when I had a failing Wheel speed sensor, the car thought that wheel was locking up, and triggered the ABS... That is where I'd look first

Wheel speed sensor will def. yield these results and the fact that you have the abs light on just further reinforces that.

I agree as well with the wheel speed sensor. I'm pretty sure that vato zone scanners will work. Go get it scanned and then post up whatever codes you get in here.
