    Unhappy ABS kicks in way earlier than req - Corolla Gli

    Aoa pals
    hope you all are doing well.
    I own a 2010 model toyota corolla gli which has done around 11k kms. The car is doing pretty good. Recently however I feel that there is some problem with braking.
    I feel that the ABS kicks in way earlier than it should, leading to very bad braking distance. Even with not so hard brakes, ABS kicks in multiple times causing larger braking distance. Abs even kicks in very slow street driving when brake is applied for negotiating the speedbreakers on very slow speeds.
    I have a feeling that this problem has something to do with the 10k service in which toyota guyz services the brakes as the problem is there after 10 k service however if I brake hard cpl of times by stamping the brake pedal then the car remain ok for some time (some hours, days or even a week) .
    Anyone else has faced this problem and any idea what is causing the problem and how to get it fixed.
    PS: tires are stock eurostars with stock rims
    Regards

    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    Are the tyres still soft or have they become hard? ABS should engage when ever tyre loses its grip. I don't think there should be a problem with the brakes as your car is new. Tyres seem to be fishy here...

    If you go over a bump, the ABS applies, automaticly, thats where the BA (brake assist) comes into play.

    There isnt any thing wrong with your car, Its just Pakistani roads for which these cars arnt made.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    on your hubs would be star wheels and a stationary magnetic sensor, if the star wheels are dirty plugged with mud or oil and have crud stuck to the sensor magnet - it will not be able to detect wheel speed correctly. Those sensors are for ABS regulation, dirty ones cause crazy regulation.

    then you should be smart enough to know it is for the users who reply with a very short reply like LOL or a face only

    Hello,

    I have GLI 2009 and drove it 80K km. every thing was fine just a couple days back i start observing the ABS is triggering abnormally. as explained by you even in slow speed. i have changed the front disk pads and did balancing and allignment, but i dont think so thats because of this.
    What i think is some thing wrong with ABS mechanism, the Sensor etc.
    Can you please guide me how did you fix this problem.
