ABS brake issue

130

Asked by Aug 27, 2009 at 10:41 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Short Bed 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently experienced ABS tripping when braking under normal conditons in my 02 1500 2 wheel drive. The brakes would pulsate and the pedal would vibrate under my foot, this tells me its abs issue. But I have not thrown a MIL or ABS light.

Here is what I have done so far to try and fix it.

New rotors and pads (it needed done anyway).
I cleanded the front wheel speed sensors, and finally replaced the worse looking one which was the passanger side.

Still nothing works. What else could it be. and are there other ways to troubleshoot since I dont have a code.

Update, I also pulled the ABS fuse to disable. But I still had the braking problem.

It could be your hub also that's what's wrong with my truck

The aftermarket Chevy (non-OEM) rotors were know to have issues with fitment, causing the pads to ride on the hub of the rotor causing all kinds of fun issues, ultimately leading the catastrophic brake failure. Have you checked to make sure the pads aren't riding on the hub portion of the rotor?

Also, I had lots of issues with both Chevy Tahoe/Suburbans I owned and front brake pulsing issues. Seems like it only took one time of emergency braking to cause issues that immediately lead to brake pulsing.
