2008 E60 pulsating wheel braking

I have searched forums but cant find this problem anywhere. 08 E60...replaced pads, rotors, sensors. Drives fine for 3,000ish miles then wheel begins to pulsate on braking. I have replaced the rotors 3 times and it continues to happen. When rotors are replaced it brakes fine for 3000ish miles. What could be causing this? Please help.

Have you had the caliper inspected? Their could be something causeing inconsident pad contact which would cause that. Or their may be a fault with the ABS system. If you can, have the ABS system scaned for trouble codes. If their is a problem with the ABS system the code would be stored differently then an OBDII code. Unfortunatly not many shops have ABS code scanners so you may have to go to the dealership.

Other things that could potentially cause that include your tires, wheel out of balance, and tie rods bieng worn.
