I have a 2003 dodge ram 1500 4x4 my abs turns on when I step on the brake usally when I am going 3-5 mph
I have changed the speed sensor in the rear end cleaned the sensors at each front
bearing at rotor. Also there is no abs light on at dash. But the problem is still there abs
coming on at very slow speed when stopping
I had the same problem on my Tribute, not sure on the Dodge but in my case it turned out to be a cracked tone ring on one of the front ones. No ABS light and only activated pulling into parking spots. I ended up replacing the other one soon thereafter. Darn rust!
I believe you maybe right. About 4 months ago my abs light came on and my speedometer was fluctuating. I took out the speed sensor out of the rear end of my truck and exchanged with a new one. I did notice there was some metal chunks on the old one. But it did fix the problem. This time no abs light just abs acting up so I changed speed sensor and it did not fix problem. When I changed speed sensor before I put new one in I put my finger in the hole the sensor goes in and I felt the ring and it was very sharp. Like something hit the teeth. From what I have been reading Dodge trucks have been having a lot of problems with clips coming off. I guess this is not going to be a quick fix looks like it will be taking the rear axle cover off and replacing some parts. I have 112000. Miles on the truck but its in mint condition other than this problem I guess I have some work to do. Thank you for your help and confirming a problem that I suspected I had to fix.
