Default Brake issue on my 2004 Ranger help please

When I turn right at a slow speed like into a driveway or parking space less then 10mph, it feels as if the abs is kicking in. This happens on dry conditions any clue anyone?
Much appricated
Chuck

have you bleed the brakes lately. air in the ABS module can cause this or a bad ABS sensor.

some speed sensors you can pull out and clean, but be careful sometimes they dont come out so early

I'd also say to check your E-Brake, if you use it at all...sometimes, they won't release all the way, and need to be readjusted; luckily, the easy way to adjust your rear brakes is to simply back up about 10-15 times, and then try your brakes to see where they are...usually that will solve the problem.

And, as always, if the problem persists, have it checked out by a reputable shop in your area.

Excessive metal dust on the ABS sensor or if you've replaced the rotors recently, the ABS tone ring could be off centered.
