mechanic doesn't know what is
causing the problem, the speed
sensor appears fine.

started to cut put, seems to happen

Check the ABS module, common symptoms you listed of one that has failed. If you are unable to communicate with the ABS system using a scan tool then more than likely this module is at fault. The ABS module usually fails when the vehicle has over 100,000 miles. Some companies due offer remanufactured units and or rebuild them to save you some money.
Thank you Thom. I will have a chat with my mechanic.
