Weird Braking Feeling

06 July 2014 - 07:02 PM

Hi all, had the pads & discs changed a few months ago & no problems since (until) a few days ago I drove the car & the ABS light didn't go off for the whole journey.  The brakes worked as normal & on the journey back after the car had been sat for a while no lit up ABS light.


Since then (even the wife has noticed it) it's not every time, maybe one in 30 when the brake pedal is pressed (the 1st inch or so of travel) you get a sensation through the pedal like the ABS is kicking in it then clears & brakes as normal.


I'm off work Wednesday so can take it to a trusted local garage but wondered if you guys had come across anything similar & any sensible starting points.  Oh & both the dashboard trick & my ODB reader don't show any stored codes).


The ABS light hasn't been on since but the weird behaviour remains.  (could it possibly be a loose/dirty/knackered ABS/brake sensor) all suggestions welcome!  :D
