    sounds like a abs actuator has gone bad, you will probably need to take to a shop to find the bad sensor, you can pull the the abs fuse under the hood to by pass this problem also.

    Its not a sensor, the pedal wouldnt get stiff and the vehicle would still stop if it were a sensor. Its a brake vacuum line leak. Shouldnt be very expensive if you take it to a shop
