ABS/ Stabilitrak

Hello everyone. So I have searched through this forum and have found what could potentially be issues and solutions to my issue. But since none seem to list the same exact issues I have, I thought I would pose the question here. Recently I have had my ABS kick in at slow speed, 5 mph or less. No ABS or Brake light during this process. And right about the same time, my Stabilitrak has started kicking in when I start moving from a complete stop. Coincidence? Maybe. Related, not sure. Does Stabilitrak use the wheel sensors that the brakes use? I have seen yes and no. I have heard steering wheel position sensor and vehicle speed sensor as possible issues. I have read also abs sensors for the brakes obviously. I just want to know if they could be tied to the same issue or are separate. And has anyone experienced this and how did you fix? Thank you in advance.

No still looking for a fix. Pulled fuse for ABS most of the problems have dissappeared. So I believe it's the controler

This behavior is usually caused by a weak front wheel speed sensor or rust/corrosion build up under the mounting plate for the speed sensor. Essentially, this causes a weaker speed signal being produced and the ABS gets confused.

I had this same issue (abs activation at slow speed) on a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer. Replacing the driver side front wheel sensor fixed the issue (passenger side was already replaced with the wheel bearing). There is a testing procedure in your service manual, and posted here on the forum.
