I have a 2002 Buick Rendezvous that just recently started having abs and traction active issues. This only occurs at slow speeds such as pulling into or out of a parking space, going through drive thru's, etc. When it happens, the anti-lock brakes come on and the pedal vibrates and it takes the car longer to stop. When the abs kicks in, it sometimes then activates the "traction active" light. I also notice this happening when driving on downgrades or small hills that I'm traveling at slow speeds. I also sometimes hear a rubbing sound when the traction activation light comes on. I have had this car in the dealership twice and they first said it was because I had two different brands of tires - so I replaced them and that didn't make any difference. I have asked them to check the abs sensor/wheel bearing, but they state it's fine. After reading several of the same issues on this site, I feel there is definitely a faulty issue with the abs sensor. My car has 73,000 miles on it.

At a slow turning speed the brakes give out and you have to re-pump the brakes for the brakes to work again . Also when you make a turn it sounds like somthing is straining ( sounds like a bunch of dying cows are under the hood of the car ) had the car in twice and was told I am turning the car to hard and there is nothing wrong with the brakes ! I have almost had two accidents because of the brakes and the moaning under the hood of the car is getting worse . This has been going on since they end of April 2005.
