Generally a brake pulsation when stopping is due to the brake rotors being warped. A slip light coming on usually indicates a problem with a wheel speed sensor. You may need the rotors to be cut but you also may want to inspect the speed sensor wires in the front for damage and also check the front wheel bearings. Play in the bearing can cause both those issues.
