the ABS system wants to slow your car down by applying various brakes from time to time depending on conditions~ wants to "anti-lock" ya~ there are "curtains" the sensor looks through...they can get clobbered up and then abs don't work no more~ so inspect these "curtains" inside each wheel~ that may cure our troubles~

Throttle body
