Over the winter, my ABS light (and brake light) came on a few times,
but reset itself without issue. This spring, it happened again, but
again it quit after a few times. Then about a month ago, I felt the
ABS motor kick in while I was driving during cruise conditions, with no
brake pedal applied. Only happened once, and for a very short
duration. Today, I was making a normal stop, and all of a sudden the
ABS kicked in, and I was not stopping. Pumped the pedal, but still no
good. Slammed the shifter in a panic into reverse, which slowed me
down, and I was able to stop. I drove it about another 5 miles without
incident. The ABS light never came on. All I have ever read or heard
about is that if the ABS malfunctions, it disables or limits itself and
normal braking equipment functions regularly. I can't figure out even
where to go to begin to chase this problem.
Thanks in advance for any help!
