The Anti-lock Brakes come on in my 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe when I am driving and braking normally. It doesn't happen all the time (intermittent).

Sometimes the light is NOT on. I actually feel the peddle pulsating when I brake at normal speeds. I could be driving five miles per hour on a dry road and the brakes will start pumping. It doesn't happen everytime, but it is definitely happening when it shouldn't. any idea?

this is caused by a faulty wheel sensor or a broken abs status/sender ring. this has been discussed in detail before, for much more information use the search engine

lovemysantafe is an unknown quantity at this point
I see you live in Canada; does the area where you live use road salt in the winter? If so that may be causing your problem. I've heard of the salt rusting the metal bracket that holds the sensor in place and it eventually cracks the metal to the point that the sensor starts to jiggle loose. Good luck.
