Abs 86 Sdl

hey kids!
I have noticed that my ABS kicks in when I am turning into driveways and breaking or sometimes nearing a stop on a semi bumpy road!
This is only the second car I have ever had with ABS and I wondering if this is normal?

thank

PS I spotted an 86 on the side of the road for sale yesterday and will be taking a peak today..... if anyone in Az wants a report...let me know!

cheers

Abs

so should I assume there is something loose in the front end that makes it think one wheel is slipping?

We its a normal problem. Thats pretty high on my "to fix" list this season actualy.

The ABS sensors go bad, on the front wheels. You can clean them but that may only fix it for awhile. One probably needs to be replaced. I don't know what the test procedure is, I think I turned it up once in a search. They cost about $150 each so you have a 50/50 shot if you just take a guess.

Does the light come on?

Maybe you can get away with just cleaning it then.
