Damn Wheel Speed Sensor

Well I have been having this problem for awhile and just yesterday figured out the problem and got it fixed. The problem i was having was while driving around sometimes when i hit the brake i would get a kick back from the ABS but with me needing to stop i wouldnt let off the pedal and i didnt understand why my ABS was kicking in under lite braking. Then my ABS light would come on as well as my Traction light.But if i would stop and turn my Jeep off and restart in and move 4ft forward it would go off but the problem would happen again later that day or anytime. So i thought that was the one time it happen while i would brake but the other night i with over a slight bump and those two light came on right away. so to make a long story Short i found out the problem while rotating my tires the speed sensor on my Pass front was so tightly ran it was retarded so i loosen up the straps and reran the wire so its loose but not to loose but enuff so if i do go over bumps its not gonna try and ripe the senor apart. but after doing that i went from having that problem happening just about everytime i drove my Jeep to not having the problem anymore
