It sounds like it's possible the front caliper or pads are hanging up. This will cause things to get heated up and create the thump sound. Usually it's the pads or caliper shifting with the rotor runout. The only sensor up there is the abs sensor and that won't cause any sounds. I would make sure you remove the caliper and check to make sure both of the slider pins move freely and that your pads move freely in the pad bracket as well.
