The best thing to check first is the ABS sensor on each wheel. Sometimes they get dirt inside them, which would cause this to occur. I am pretty sure its a 10mm socket to take the ABS sensors off. The front wheels could be done by turning the steering wheel each way. You can use brake cleaner to clean them off. The backs are easy to get to also, especially without jacking the car up, but try the fronts first then the backs. The front is usually where the problems are. Hope this helps!!!
