ABS feed back

I seem to have a problem with my E-350 van, I'm getting 'push-back' from the brake pedal, pulses like ABS. Can the ABS be unhooked, so I can drive the dang thing like I'm used to, I grew up on old-school non-ABS trucks. I'd rather the wheels lock up so I can modulate them my self, rather than pushing the heck out of the pedal, turning red in the face, and not even havein' a skid mark to show for it, just a racing pulse...
Made for a wild ride down a twisty turny muddy gravel road the other day... thought I was goin' over the hill. Imagine rollin' a 10K tool box over side of a mountain... gonna take a big tree to stop that one.

thanks...

sure....u can unplug the HCU...just follow the brake lines from the master cylender down to the HCU and unplug the electrical connector there....but i dont know why you would ever want to do that. Its a fact that ABS will stop in a considerably shorter distance than you can ever modulate your brakes because they do it so fast. Wheel lockup doesnt help slow a vehicle down as fast, but braking just to the limits of lockup (which ABS allows for) gives you maximum braking ability....

Marc,

I know ABS will help... however, it seems to be not working properly, to the point of being unsafe, sevral stops have left me feeling like it should stop quicker, and that for all the force I'm stompin' on the pedal, the ABS is wasting most of it... pushing back at the pedal, and not stoping the van... unhooking things is a short term fix. What things in the ABS system will 'push back' on the pedal? What could be wrong with the system to cause the problem I have?

Thanks for your time...

No ABS light... just pedal pushback, and scary moments when stoping...

Wouldn't he get a push back if one of the calipers was frozen?

Seems to stop straight, frozen caliper would make it pull to one side, wouldn't it?
