Default braking problem

My 1990 Integra sometimes gets a pulsation in the brake pedal just before
coming to a stop. It happens at very low speed under minimal braking effort.
It feels like the ABS is engaging. Any ideas what could be causing this? My
first thought was wheel speed sensor, but no error code is being set.

Thanks,
Rob

Your rotors may be warped. It seems Acura/Honda has crappy rotors.

Rotors, pads and calipers are all new.

Probably a wheel speed sensor that is failing or a damaged pulser ring on
the joint or hub. Do a visual inspection for damage then find out the specs
for a resistance check to see if a sensor is failing. Usually between
500-1500 ohms I believe.

If they are all new, you have to take it easy on them for a little while for
the pads to get seated. If you did not do this when the job was done you may
have warped your new rotors...
