Citroen C5 09 plate diesel manual; now ,900 miles. Alarming

Customer Question

Citroen C5 09 plate diesel manual; now 69,900 miles. Alarming sudden sporadic ABS braking whilst driving. Example - today: normal driving for about an hour, then, moving off through gears/normal acceleration - into 2nd gear the abs activates itself forcing me to stop. This repeated throughout the day at irregular intervals, sometimes going into 3rd or 4th gear. Sometimes entirely normal.

Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
From what you are describing the issue that you are having is consistent with a failing speed sensor that results in the abs to be activated. The first step is to have the input and output speed sensors tested.
