I have a problem with the brakes on Civic 2005 Vti Prosmatec. Last year, I had to lathe the brake disks and change the brake pads as car used to vibrate when brakes were applied. The problem was solved at that time.
Now I am facing another problem. When I apply a little harder brake, ABS is activated and it looks that car is not braking as efficiently as it should. It can be a disaster at times since it is uncommon for ABS to activate under normal conditions. Probably ABS was never triggered before this problem. This happened even at lower speeds under normal weather conditions and I wonder why ABS was came into action.
What type of fault it can be and which is the best workshop for this job.
Tell me if you had some sort of work done on your CV joint?
If no..then see if the Sensor edges on the CV joint are damaged or not : Sensor is the something like threaded metal gear mount on to Cv Joint.
Also,first try to reset you vehicle.
Report if you find some sucess..
clean all 4 speed sensors in the wheel hubs - and you'll be good, this usually happens when the sensors or trigger wheels get quite dirty - they SEE that the wheel is jamming.. and start activating ABS for no reason
