Default Abs problems rx300

I have an issue stopping and was told it was abs sensors. I'm not sure if it's all or one. The pedal also pulsates when I apply brakes and SOME times the truck will roll after I come to a stop. I then have to press the pedal twice to get it to stop. Any ideas as to what it could be? I know the sensors are too expensive for me to buy right now and I read that you may be able to clean the sensors.

Welcome, do you have an abs light on? If you are rolling after you come to a stop, the issue is with your brakes themselves, not the sensor. Do a basic maintenance and check on the condition of your brake pads and thickness of your rotors. Replace as necessary. Flush and bleed the brakes. Sensors can be cleaned by removing the 12 mm bolt holding them at each hub.

Susie, can you clarify this one? Did it really come to a stop, and it won't stay stopped, or was it slowing to a stop and you feel like it's letting go (accompanied by that ABS grinding sound and pulsing feel)?
