About a month after purchasing vehicle, brakes failed or shuddered a couple of times when braking at low speeds. Finally abs light went on and according to the manual this means the abs brake system is no longer working - have had no braking problems since. Dealer says it's a rear switch that's out, and wants over $200 to replace, but I haven't fixed it since research leads me to believe the abs system is faulty anyway.

First, I heard a sound as I was slowing down to approach the signal. Then, the abs went off for approx. 5 to 10 seconds and during that time, I was not able to stop. I proceeded to turn right at the red signal with no other option available to me at the time. From there, I took the vehicle to suburban Honda where I originally bought and serviced my Honda Passport. Please note that the abs indicator light came on the night before the 2nd incident.

I have experienced multiple failures of the abs system since purchase. The problem was intermitnt and generally at speeds of less than 20 mph on dry roads. I would estimate no fewer than 25 failures in two years wherein the brakes fail to engage properly at low speed causing the vehicle stopping distance to be excessive. When braking, the brakes often failed to engage particularly at rough intersections. It feels as if the vehicle slides over the bumps. Now the abs light came on and remains lit. The abs unit itself runs even with the motor off. I have removed the fuse and disengaged the abs which allows the vehicle to operate safely although there is no abs active. With the abs disengaged, I have had no additional problems. I believe this is a very dangerous and common safety defect with the 1999 Passport. There are a significant number of similar complaints to NHTSA and on the web which indicate this to be a manufacturer defect. I understand that this defect is currently under investigation and I would recommend fast-track recall action to avoid accidents related to this defect.
