Abs sensor wires are very funny when it comes to just rejoining them as the resistance in the wire is less so abs light may stay on, most earlier fords abs lights will go off after prob is fixed and car is driven, best to go to local garage and get diagnostic done

When applying brakes on 99 Ford Explorer they feel good until just berfore stopping then it feels like a push back on pedal and a bit of chatter like the ABS is coming on. Doesn't feel right. No Problem...


I had the same problem with my 2002 Silverado. The grease seal on the right front wheel bearing went up letting grease build up on sensor . Disconnect ABS sensor wire at wheel one wheel at a time. Abs light on dash will come on but that's ok. drive and stop easy with wire disconnected until brakes feel normal. Then you will know wheel is the problem.

Abs light is on and brake light just come on. brake fluid is full and brakes seem ok


Most commonly a broken ABS sensor wire at one of the wheels. Can you test the car somewhere where you can invoke the ABS? The sensors can fail as well although it's the wire more likely.

ABS light being on could be a bad sensor or broken wire to the sensors. ABS is on the front brakes, check the front wheels inside for wiring going up to the main ABS ecu mounted at the master cylinder. Check the wires from at the bearing assy. then follow up to the ABS ECU or the brain, for any cuts or nicks. You can have a bad wheel sensor you check these with a volt/ohm meter, Find the plug at the wheel and unplug it ck for ohms should read like .018 ohms. If you raise the wheel and spin it you can then read volts, depends on how fast you spin the wheel you can get 2-3 volts. .

Abs light troubles


Possibly have a bad speed sensor or something else. You will need to have it hooked to a computer to find out what is going on with it.

Does your speedometer work ok? There is a sensor on top of your rear differential that provides a signal to both the abs and the computer(speedometer uses the signal from the computer) This sensor goes out pretty common.
