when I step on the break it feels like the ABS system is working and it should not be fluttering and it has not done that before under normal situations

Asked by Oct 09, 2014 at 05:56 PM about the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my abs breaks are fluttering when I gently step on them and usually they don't unless I
make a sudden stop or the roads are slick. I have a 2008 Dodge 1500 quad 4x4 "sport"

1 Answer

I would check the ABS sensors. Front brakes may be the culprit. You may need to replace the sensor at the wheel, or it may just be dirty/rusty, and cleaning with a wire brush might do the trick. If that all checks out OK, I would suggest a trip to the dealer. Brakes are not something to take chances with. Good luck.
