So I've had an issue with my truck which so far I've been ignoring, but with winter coming, I want to get it resolved.
Starting about 2 months ago my ABS would activate when there was no need for it. Just moving around a dry parking lot it would go off and scare the crap out of me. As a short term solution I've pulled the fuse, but I would like to fix it properly.
Where should I start looking?

My 98 does that, it started when leaving the parking garage at work. Steep down hill with hard right at the bottom approaching the gate, made the turn and the abs activated approaching the gate. Scared the crap out of me as I had never had a vehicle with ABS before. Didn't do it all the time and then it did it pulling into a parking space and I ran over the curb. The ABS light would come on intermittently then go off. I tried replacing the left front sensor and it just got worse. Finally I pulled the fuse as it was getting dangerous. Been driving without the fuse or ABS for a couple of years now.
