Is the ABS light on?


No lights on.


Could fluid not be getting to the caliper due to pinched brake hose?? seems strange, only happens when turning at very low speed .

Ok. then you may need to start by checking the brake fluid,then check the the brakes for leaks, all so check the brake pads,to be good,usually a ABS problem will make the brakes hard,not soft,if all checks out good you may have a bad master cylinder or one of your calipers is bad.


If it were pinched hose brake pedal would not be soft,it would stay the same or even tighter.


Ok thank you will get on it in the morning :)
