ABS failure

Truck failed to stop while driving in a snow storm last weekend. Pedal went to the floor as I was sliding out into the intersection and the ABS light came on. The light came on/off throughout the day; then stayed off and the truck appeared to function correctly. The dealer found an ABS failure code and they replaced the rear ABS sensor.

I have an intermittent ABS problem too. Had an emergency stop situation and locked up the rear tires resulting on a flat spot. Replaced the four rear tires at 2500 miles for more than $1000 because the dealer could not find anything that said that the ABS malfunctioned. Didn't happen for a while but returned recently. Took it in again and the Dealer found a code this time. They ordered a new sensor but due to timing I had to leave. Took it in to another dealer in the town where I went (and had the light come on between dealers) but the second one could not find anything wrong with it so no sensor/fix here.

Anyways, just another problem to add to the list.
