ABS

1998 Ford E-Series Van

Brakes problem
1998 Ford E-Series Van V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 127, 00 miles

Hello,

Not sure what is wrong, in the winter My abs kick on at bad time< g> that is to say if I'm driving and hit the brakes some time the ABS kicks on and the van will not stop, If I let off and reapply they work normal some times, but mostly the abs kick back in and it will not stop, , this only happens in the snow, the work just fine in the rain. I could be going only 5mph and hit the brake pedal softly, full ABS and the van will go straight into the intersection, but if it hits a dry patch it stops right know. Does this sound like a bad sensor on the wheels or the ABs brain. OR could it be a sticking caliper.
