The vehicle we're driving is a 2005 Ford Excursion. This is common for many vehicles. Okay, you saw that we applied the brakes and the vehicle came to a stop. Even though it was on dry pavement, it pulled to the right. That's because of the ABS on the left side. The sensor's giving a bad signal, so the ABS fires off on the left side and the right side is pulling to the right. The left, or driver's side, ABS sensor is bad on this vehicle. If your right or passenger side front sensor was bad it would pull to the left. At 1A Auto we have a wide selection of ABS sensors for many different vehicles.
