Brakes acting funny

Ok so heres the deal,

My brakes where acting fine until the other day when I was pulling fuses looking for blown fuse. No they are acting in a way that I can only describe as loud. They still seem to work ok but may be a little sluggish. The sound is like the brake "motors" are having a hard time working.

my question is, did my checking fuses somehow cuase this, or is it chance that it started right after I started pulling fuses?

oh, 2000 sable dohc

Re: Brakes acting funny

Pulling fuse shouldn't cause anything like that. Does it sound like the ABS is actuating? Hard to tell without hearing it first hand. Being a safety item, I'd have it checked right away. Could have picked up something on the raod that's causing it and it's minor.

Re: Brakes acting funny

What would abs problem sound like?

after driving today I am thinking that my left rotor is bad. I looked at it today and the inside spaces are pretty rusted, plus I have the tell-tale thumping in my brake pedal. I am guessing that the timing of this and pulling my fuses is just coincidental.

I will have to tear it apart tomorrow if the weater is decent.
