While approaching a stop on dry pavement (at just a few miles per hour) the ABS unit kicks in. After this happens a few times, the ANTILOCK light on the dash illuminates. The car has new front and rear brake pads and I had the lines flushed about 6 months ago. Just prior to this problem the ABS was working fine. Could this be a dirty or mis-aligned ABS sensor? Or...worse yet...the ABS unit?
