2001 Ford Explorer Sport ABS

While coming to a stop the brakes seem fine until the vehicle is almost at
a complete stop (approx 5 mph) then the pedal seems to drop slightly and
the ABS seems to activate. The vehicle stops but the brakes pulsate for a
second or two every time. This problem is not sporadic, but only happens a
very slow speeds. Any ideas???? Tom

Check out SeriousExplorations.com. I'm sure I've seen this problem
covered there as well just about anything else that can happen to an
Explorer

Re: 2001 Ford Explorer Sport ABS

Sounds like an incoherent signal from one wheel sensor.... dirty, loose or
misalgined sensor is one set of possible causes, a cracked tone ring (any
recent work?). Easiest way to do it is to drive it while monitoring the
appropriate PIDs...
