          Hello,

 

        Here is the history ...

 

 

   Purchased car     (no lite on)

 

  light came on,,,,,, say about a year later.....

               (there were no noticeable symptoms)

then

 

   On one of my   annual inspections...

(where I have to get the check engine light out)

 

       I was using AN OBDII  scanner.....

  THE SCANNER SAID   " POSSIBLE OPEN CIRCUIT ON  REAR PASSENGER SIDE WHeel SENSOR"

 

                               (STILL::::::::: there where no noticeable symptoms)

 

 

ReCENTLY::::::::::::::::::

 

                           Now there is a symptom.......

    AS the vechicle comes to a stop (pretty much under speeds of 20mph)

        there is a constant shutter in the brake pedal....(false ABS pump actuation)

 

              Possible causes::::

 

                       Maybe it is the wheel sensor that came up on the scan..... but it is possible that it is not.........

                  I don't know for sure.As I have not investigated this.. but, my point being... these sensors are expensive..... I don't want to

                  get into dumping money into sensors  and racking up a big bill......

 

                     ALSO,,,,   at the current time I am not able to repair vehicle due to the vehicle's location.....

                  It is not near me that I can just go and work on the car....

 

                  Is there a way to DISABLE the ABS system completely  (SO it doesn't do this false actuation as low speeds)??????????????

                   I understand that if disable is possible then no ABS system on any of the wheels

 

                           Thanks, Grannie
