SOURCE: my abs light stays on on my ford focus

when the ABS light stays on it means there is a fault present in the ABS system and the ABS has been disabled, as long as the light is on u just have regular brakes with no ABS, there are many thinbgs that can turn the light on, most common is one of the wheel speed sensors is defective, since these sensors are about $75-100 each and there are 4 of them guessing is a poor idea, so what u need to do is have the ABS systwem tested, there will be a fault code present to help narrow down the defective part or wiring.

SOURCE: 2004 focus brake & ABS light on

Ok the reason I ask is that will help to pinpoint the concern. See ABS system when you first turn the ignition on will do a self test on itself,light turns on for a few seconds then turns off if everything proves out. Then when you start driving once you reach about 12 mph it will activate the pump and perform a 2nd self test.If everything is ok light stays off,if it see's a problem it turns on the light and disables the ABS.
Since yours comes on after you start driving then problem is most likely a wheel speed sensor concern. Since you just did a rear brake job and the problem started after this I would say it is one of the rear sensors.You need to look at the sensors and make sure the sensor and ring look ok and that you didn't get grease or dirt in the teeth of the sensor ring or maybe bent the end of one of the sensors and make the gap larger between sensor and ring.

SOURCE: car died, repeated clicking noise when start attempt...

The clicking is the Starter Solonoid not getting enough CCAs from the battery to start it.
While running - the alternator should be able to charge the system to 14.4V.

11 volts you are experiencing tells me your alternator is faulty.

Your dash and other items were turning off/on while driving because the voltage probably dipped below 8.4v.

Your vehicle runs off the alternator power once started. The battery is only there to get the engine spinning initially.

A backyard mechanic's way to test the alternator is to start the vehicle - then remove the positive wire on the battery (coming from the alternator).

** If the vehicle stays running - the battery is problematic - probably a dead cell - have it LOAD tested at a local parts shop for free.

** If the vehicle dies shortly after removing the + battery wire - the alternator is failing - and replacement is necessary.

The ABS light is on and off. when it is on it will make a feeling of the front tires rolling under the car then the light will come on. you feel it in the peddle also with movement toward the floor while...


sounds like you have a abs sensor failing to read a signal on one wheel , car thinks that the wheel has locked up and as you press the brake it cuts the abs in and tries to release the brakes which is the noise your hearing and poss pulling to one side as you brake untill computer recognises a fault and shuts down the abs system which is when the abs light comes on, this pulling may indicate which one is faulty, it will need a abs sensor or signal ring on the drive shaft,usually a front one ! a damaged wheel bearing can cause an interupted signal to that sensor, failing that your abs pump is faulty, hopefully not the pump as this is very expensive

Ford focus abs light dose not light up at all . ( 99-1.6.petrol)


read your owner manual to see when the BAS light should be on during "prove out." Sometimes the prove out is after the engine starts.
Also, if the ABS ever fails, you always still have regular power brakes.

You should go on a gravel road and slam on the brakes to se if the anti'lock still functions. You will hear the BAS motor run and the pedal pulse. good luck

Warning lights


You need to have your brakes inspected by a professional. The lights indicate that ABS and traction control are not working...although brakes will work without these features, a humming noise can indicate more problems to come.
