Help! ABS and Advancetrac problems!

I seem to be having some serious problems. When it rains, my ABS begins to make my brake pedal stiffen and pulsate, and even my engine will hesitate for up to 2 to 4 minutes, and then 'service advancetrac' lights come on, and the ABS is disabled and all other symptoms dissappears. Is there a way to fix this? Should the ABS be permenantly disabled (if possible), or is there any other solutions.? I have a 2012 V6, with automatic transmission. Thanks in advance!

I'm assuming driving slow when it shouldn't be engaging...if so I would check the wheel speed sensors/esp the connectors. That is thinking rain/wet is a good clue.

I have had the wheel speed sensors all checked. All appear to be working properly.

Plus one on the sensors. This looks like a case of intermittent signal loss between a sensor and the abs module. If the sensors look good, find someone with a good scan tool (not sure if a flash tuner can access other modules on the can bus, but I have used a friend's solus ultra to get that same data from my car) and record the data from the abs inputs while driving. Look for any data loss, or weird spikes or drops that the car does not physically exhibit. If any are seen, focus all efforts on the corresponding corner.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.

Are all your tires the same size? What fault codes are you getting? How much tread on your tires? If your hydroplaning you could get pulsating when braking.
