Hi, I have an 02 Escalade and have a problem at very low speed braking. Without fail when coming to a stop, like right before your about to stop, it feels like the abs kicks in, pedal goes soft for a split second and the goes back to normal. This seemed to start happening after the vehicle had been sat up non running for approx 2-3 months. Any easy checks first?

Could be the wheel speed sensors

Ok. One in each wheel. I'm running the car in the UK so there aren't a great deal of specialists around, is it a DIY check?

I would just replace them both because if one is acting the other may give troubles later on
