Why are the antilock brakes engaging on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500?

Asked by Mar 02, 2015 at 04:08 PM about the 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr ST Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My anti lock brakes will engage
intermittently  when they shouldn't be.
Sometimes at speeds as slow as 20mph on
dry asphalt under lite braking.  It even did
this with a technician in the truck. He gave
up trying to figure it out.  I have replaced
the speed sensor, master cylinder, abs
computer, abs pump, proportioning valve
and rear wheel cylinders. Any help you can
give me would be appreciatted.
