Default farting noise in brakes at starting

When I first start my car with my hoof on the brake pedal it makes a farting noise. I'm pretty sure its something with abs since its the same sensation If I dont have my hoof on the pedal during start up it doesnt do this. Is this normal? Does anybody elses bonnie do this.

Sorry for all of the is this normal posts!

I can't tell you how many times I have heard this question...lol

When you first start the car, and take off.... At around 15mph between 1st and 2nd gear you will hear a groaning noise, and if you apply the brakes while this is happening you will get that farting noise....

This is completely normal, that is the EBCM doing a self test of the ABS pump.... Nothing to worry about

When a lot of people experience this they almost see it as a problem... Most think it has to do with the transmission... It will only happen one time and thats when you first start the car and take off... I'm not sure if the test is performed everytime you start the car, but from a cold start the EBCM will do the self test... Kinda of a freaky thing, but you get used to it after a while..

If it normal its then I dont have a problem with it. Now if any passenger notices I just can bust out thats just the EBCM is doing a self test. ECBM means? Couldnt find it in my fsm.

Electronic Brake Control Module. The brain. Controls ABS and Traction control on your car. The pump itself that Don is talking about is actually for the traction control only. It uses applied braking to the slipping wheel.
