Not always but often when I am driving slow and apply the brakes the pedal seems to push against my foot and I have to press very hard to activate the brakes. The problem seems to be in the ABS system. It never happens when I am backing up and never happens when I am going over 5 kilometers an hour.

It may be due to bumpy road conditions that is causing this. I am assuming nothing else is wrong with the system.

The road conditions do not matter. It will happen on paved or gravel, smooth or bumby.

The only thing without driving the vehicle that I can think of is that there is a low vacuum condition of some sort. Which on a power brake system would make the pedal do as you say it is.
