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.
