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. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Feb 18 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 Feb 19 at 19:31
  • 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. – peter Feb 22 at 18:25
  • Paulster,All new pads and rotors. Happened before and after replacements. Thank you. – peter Feb 22 at 18:36
