new rotors and brakes triggering ABS
I recently bought a 2004 Ranger XLT 4X2. I have had a few issues in the couple of months that I have had it. It only has 68,000 miles. Because of a pulsing in the brakes, I decided to try my first rotor, bearing and pad replacement. Everything went smooth until I drove to bed-in the pads. After getting up to 35 mph and applying steady pressure to the brakes, at 15 mph the ABS kicks in. After doing this 4 or 5 times, the ABS light comes on.
I choose Raybestos rotors, ThermoQuiet ceramic pads, and timken bearings. When I returned home, I noticed that the tone ring was different on the rotors ( at least on one of them. It turns out I had 2 different rotors on there). Could this effect the ABS sensor?
I also noticed the that when I re-applied the caliper, the pads were already biting somewhat and not free spinning. Also, when I went to recheck everything after the drive, the lug nuts were extremely hot.
What am I missing? How can I fix the ABS issues? Do I need to try different rotors with a different style tone ring?
Huge thank you to the forum in advanced for any help!
