This most likely means one of the wheel speed sensors are failing, it is not a serious problem. This would cost around $150 to have replaced at a shop. First step to figuring out problem is having diagnostic codes checked which can be done at your local parts store for free. Once you get the codes you can reply to this answer at any time without additional fees. With codes I can give you common/possible problems, testing/repair instructions, and costs. Vehicle is still perfectly fine to drive and brakes will work fine, just not the anti lock function. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
