Front Brake Problem - ABS

Has anyone experienced this issue? Last week as I was parking my bike in the garage, the front lever froze in the unbrake position. I have to squeeze the lever very hard and long to apply the brake. bike is a '10 with ABS.

2017 FLTRXS, Givi V56 Topcase, Windvest 10", National Cycle Hand Deflectors, Rapid Transit Tank Bag. My last bike was 2014 Triumph Trophy SE. Before that: 2010 FLTRX.

I had a 2000 chevy truck do that in town years back in traffic, It was very unsettling. I believe it had to do with a sensor on one of the wheals. It was expensive so the shop pulled the fuse. that experience has caused me to rethink abs. I'm not intending to get an abs thread started, however we're about due.

Recommend you take the bike to your HD dealer and have them connect the digital technician to your bike to exercise the ABS solenoids and flush the brake fluid at the same time.....this MAY unstick the ABS solenoid... .if not you're probably looking at ABS module replacement.

The problem was the ABS unit. The dealer replaced it and the extended warranty paid for it.
