You posted this comment earlier this year with regard to your ABS Light, something gripping the front left tire, etc.. I'm having EXACTLY the same problem and haven't been able to diagnose. Can you tell me what was wrong and how it was fixed?
Along with the lights, when taking off from a stop, something grips my front left tire (preventing it from turning smoothly), off and on a few times... then it stops.
However, it doesn't seem to be my brakes, as the sound is more of a grinding/rubbing noise. Did you also experience this?
