2001 chevy truck brake trouble Sign In

2001 chevy silveraldo 4x4 truck 5.3 My brakes just started giving me trouble. When i pull up to a stop sign my brake petal goes to the floor and it sounds like my anti-lock brakes come on. When i'm going down the road and hit my brakes there fine.I only have trouble when coming to a complete stop. My truck has not been worked on since i bought it last year.

One of the ABS speed sensor is not accurate at low speed and the computer senses that as a brake lockup. You will need a high grade scan tool or lab scope to determine which one it is.
