ABS blocking the brakes ?

I did a search on the forum about ABS and seems there is not much mechanical problems with them and most of the times it is sensor triggering the light to come on. The wises response I was able to find in those topics was "Remove The Bulb From The Instrument Cluster Easier Job"
Funny guys
Anyway, our "new" E300D is blocking front wheels occasionally. There is no light, no error codes just at freeway speeds for no apparent reason the brakes start pulsing, putting additional stress on the engine. It is not too serious. (I drove 1000 miles on it in 2 days and the hottest the rims got was 154 F), but annoying.
I took brake apart and tried to push the piston to max extended position, hoping it is some corrosion holding the brakes, but they are clean and the pump took very long time to pump the brakes and suck the fluid from the tank.
Is it possible that older fluid might cost that, or do I have a problem with computer on ABS?
