So ... is your brake reservoir full? I don't think the Element has a separate reservoir for the ABS, but I'm away from my service manual. Your dealer, OTOH, should know, not guess, the answer to this.the dealer ... said it sounds like the ABS pump is going bad or reservoir is low on fluid causing them to activate for a few seconds and that is what causes the vibration sound. He said some models have a reservoir for the brakes and separate one for ABS.
