tried taking out fuse for abs
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX let me do a little checking I have an idea or two.
I have found a bulletin that describes your situation. Over time rust accumulates under the speed sensor and increases the distance from the sensor to the reluctor ring, so as you come to a stop the sensor signal drops off and the abs module sees this as a tire skidding and the abs kicks in. Basically the bulletin had you remove the sensor, clean the mounting surface with a file or something and then reinstall it.
This bulletin is being revised to add the 2007 Silverado/Sierra Classic models. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-05-25-007C (Section 05 -- Brakes).
Some customers may comment on ABS activation at low speeds, usually below 8 km/h (5 mph). Upon investigation, the technician will find no DTCs set.
The cause of this condition may be an increased air gap between the wheel speed sensor and the hub reluctor ring due to rust and debris built up on the sensor mounting surface.
Measure AC voltage and clean the wheel speed sensor mounting surfaces.

Did the bulletin come through?
yes....how much something like this cost
Are you going to do it or have a shop?
shop.. if not easy
it only happens sometimes and when it does it happens right before coming to complete stop so that sounds like thats the problem
I agree, that is the first place to start, it is very common. If you had someone do it you would probably be looking around 200 dollars.
and until i fix it ...would disengaging the fuse for the abs and tc work by turning to normal braking
Its up to you, it is actually not hurting anything, but if you wanted you can pull the abs fuse, but the abs light will come on.
i did and it turned the brake light on too ....but should that stop it until i fix it
if thats the problem
Correct it will and wont hurt anything until you get it fixed.
Have them check the wheel bearing on the lf tire also to make sure it is tight, otherwise I would go with the sensor cleaning. Thanks.
