2001 F250, 7.3, Extended Cab, Lariat, 4WD, 4WABS

When coming to a stop on dry pavement, the ABS seems to kick in on the right front. At about 2 or 3 mph, the right front brake lets go and the truck pulls to left as it stops. No other issues.

Bad sensor? Module? Something else?

Thanks

Im having the same issue on my 01 with 206k miles.

Thanks, Rob

No..... I may start throwing parts at it.

My best guess is the sensor on the front right.

The symptom is typically caused by a weak sensor signal or one that drops out at low speeds. Excessive sensor to tone ring gap will cause this if the wheel bearing is going bad and will always start doing this just as you come to a stop. At that point it wont set a code or turn on the warning indicator. A scan tool capable of monitoring wheel speed can help identify which sensor is misbehaving. My explorer did this and I thought it was the right side... turned out to be the left.

Ah, thanks.

At 160K, I suppose I should just do the bearings anyway. I'll let you know how that works out.

Replacing good OE bearings with aftermarket could increase your problems. Diagnose FIRST; choose how to repair SECOND.

Agreed. When the bearings went on my Explorer I went with inexpensive aftermarket hubs... which came with sensors as will the OEM hubs. One of them only lasted about two years.
