    Hello All

    Recently my ABS has been kicking in while under no braking what so ever. Sometimes i would be driving normally then all of a sudden the ABS will activate causing the car to brake. I have pulled the ABS fuse for the time being and the car drives perfectly.

    It must be noted that when the ABS engages the ABS light will activate however if i slam the brakes on again the ABS light will come off.

    I will clean the ABS sensors tomorrow to see if it will help. Has this happened to anyone else?

    With the fuse in, this problem does not happen all the time. It is the odd occasion here or there however the problem has become more frequent just lately.

    Thanks for reading.
