Default Anti-Lock Brakes not working

I have a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT that I bought this summer. Today is our first snow fall and I have just noticed that the Anti-lock brakes don't work. The truck just locks up the brakes and slides. The ABS light does NOT come on either. Both the ABS and ABS pump fuses appear to be in good working condition. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I have just noticed the same thing with my truck. Haven't had much time to look at it yet. To cold for me. Hopefully some one has some answers for us...

The last week, at the garage, i learn my Ram 2008 has only ABS at the rear of the truck and work properly.
No abs on front, what is it ???
On my old Pathfinder, the ABS worked very best than a new Ram...
I'm very disapointed on this cheap ABS.
My truck slide on a Stop...it's not safe.

I have the Auto mode on my transmission (auto, 4 high, 4 low), and it's not engage at the good time. Frequently it's engage after little slide. Again on my old Pathfinder 2001, it's worked very best.

Your Pathfinder was an SUV and by industry standards therefore a car. Your truck is not classified as a car and therefore not required to have ABS on all wheels by law. Now the later models I believe have ABS all around.

I have the same problem. And the front wheels have what looks like abs sensors.
