Sounds like you either have a bunk ABS sensor or your control module is failing. Have you preformed any electrical testing?

It's not what you have. It's how well it works.

I believe what you mean by force is momentum? And if you have a bad ABS sensor or control module then your answer is yes. The ABS takes power away from your wheel when it detects loss of traction when attempting to stop. The same will happen if your traction control module goes bad except this usually only happens if you are accelerating. I wouldn't replace either until you test the units themselves.

It's not what you have. It's how well it works.
