You have been offered some suggestions.

What HAVE YOU done so far?

Taken the wheel off and cleaned everything up?

Maybe that rotor is a little out of true?

I just posted yesterday, Nobby, so I haven't done much. The wheels were off recently and a mechanic looked over the brakes pronouncing them fine. Other than the problem I described the brakes work butter.

My plan of action is to defeat the ABS system and then see if the problem goes away. If it does, and I think it will, the next step will be to clean the front ABS sensors. If that doesn't work, I dunno. I may just keep the ABS defeated as I do not want to sink a ton of time and money (mostly money) on ABS when the car is only driven in fair weather.

Thanks everyone for leading me in the right direction. If anyone has experienced my issue (1.loose pedal and that abs pulsating feeling and noise from the front brakes when stopping at slow speeds 0-20 mph. 2. ABS light does not come on when driving. ABS light works with key on.), please chime in.
