Intermittent Brake Issue

I am having an intermittent braking issue. Very intermittently and at low speeds(when coming to a full stop) the car pulls sharply to the right. It feels like the left caliper had gone on snooze mode. Given it is so intermittent, it does not seem mechanical. Any ideas on what could be doing this?

I have the same problem when it is cold in WA. The dealer cannot duplicate the issue but I am pretty sure it is a DTC sensor. It also happens sometimes pulling on the left.

I will pull the wheels and check for mechanical issues but suspect, as you suggest, that it is electronic

Could it be the control arm bushings? My R53 did this when my LCAB's were shot

Dont think it is likely to be the bushings as I think it would be a more consistent problem if it were - but thanks and I will take a look at it as a precaution
