When turning sharply to the right when pulling in to a parking place, there is a shuddering and delayed stop.

ABS light has come on intermittently.

FIXD shows nothing.

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! I'd suggest you look at your brakes. Ensure you check the brake pad thickness on both sides of the rotor. This is for both sides of the front end. Feb 18, 2019 at 21:50
  • Have you used a code reader, or better yet a diagnostic computer to see if your ABS system is has intermittent sensors? Sometimes there will be codes for ABS which do not get flagged with a check engine light. I have had similar problems, including sporadic triggering of one wheel ABS. The ABS system logged errors, and pointed me to the correct sensor.

  • Mongo, The only diagnostic device I have is FIXD, which does not show ABS. I've seen what you are talking about on Youtube. Is there an affordable device that you recommend? I doubt parts stores will loan that out. I saw somewhere where the senor that is broken is opposite the side that the problem seem to be on. I also saw someone using a volt meter on the sensor while the hub is turned- a voltage output was shown. Mongo,Thank you.
