THESE 3 CASES OF AN ABS FAILURE OCCURRED ON DAMP ROADS. TWO CASES INVOLVED THE RIGHT FRONT TIRES BEING OVER LEAVES ON THE ROAD WHEN BRAKES WERE APPLIED. ALL THE CASES INVOLVED TRYING TO STOP AT A STOP SIGN. NORMAL PRESSURE(NOT A PANIC STOP) WAS APPLIED TOBRAKES, AND ALL 3 CASES WERE AT A SPEED OF 5MPH OR LESS. WHEN THE ABS SYSTEM KICKED IN, THE CAR BASICALLY WOULD NOT STOP WITHIN ANY REASONABLE DISTANCE. WE HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS ABS SYSTEM(KELSEY-HAYES) EVER SINCE WE PURCHASED VEHICLE IN 1994. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THIS SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK!!!! IF THE ABS EVER KICKS IN, YOU ARE IN TROUBLE. WE HAVE HAD ONLY 1 ACCIDENT SINCE 1994(CAUSED BY THE ABS), BUT HAVE HAD NUMEROUS NEAR-MISSES. I HAVE EVEN LOOKED INTO DISCONNECTING THE ABS, BUT THERE IS SIOME INTERLOCKING OF THE ABS TO THE TRANSMISSION OR OTHER SYSTEMS THAT PREVENT YOU FROM DOING THAT. I HAVE TALKED TO THE DEALERS, MANUFATURER, AND THE NTHSA. THE DEALERS AND THE MANUFACTURERS ARE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT WOULD INVOLVE REPLACING THE WHOLE KELSEY-HAYES SYSTEM NOT JUST A MODIFICATION.
