While driving ABS and brake light came on, and brakes got hard. It was hard to stop at 45 mph. Took to dealer, and they said acid was dripping onto brake line and it corroded anti-lock valve. Consumer has replaced brakes and drums numerus times beford finding problem was with the dripping of acid.

Brake line too near bolt on side of engine, worn through due to friction, resulted in complete drainage of master cylinder.
