ABS light on 2006 F250 King Ranch

When driving the ABS light will suddendly light up and at the same time the truck will spit and sputter. Sometime the speedo will drop from 60 MPH down to 35, then come right back to 60. Brakes are working fine. If I continue to drive the ABS light will go off and everything appears normal- - -until the same cycle will start all over again. Anybody know what is going on?

    this is something that sould be looked at by a dealer 2006 you should still be close to warrenty. the ford scan tool would be the best help for this problem. it is a laptop that shows the trouble codes. time, speed and when if happened.

Your speed sensor in your trans. needs to be checked out sounds like its not working or not getting a good signal until its generating enough power and speed to start until it reaches 30 MPH. Check that out sometimes it could just be some dirt on it. It all makes sense the ABS light is on because its not reading the speed of the tires, and the AOD light is on because It has no idea when to shift into overdrive without knowing how fast its going. I sure Hope that Helps You Out, And Thanks, Bear001

SOURCE: abs light on

I'm a Ford service adviser. There are many reasons for the
abs warning indicator to come on. The usual cause is from a
faulty speed sensor. Either a wheel speed sensor or the
differential speed sensor. I don't think the light is related to your vandalism. You might want to take the truck to an auto parts store and have them read the codes for you. Most auto parts stores will do this for free.
Good Luck

You have an engine misfire....unless you have expertise in this area you need to see your local shop as you will damage your catalytic converter if you continue to drive. An OBD II scan tool will id the cylinder to help but knowledge here is key!!

Eric, The wrench symbol is telling you maintenance is required.
You will have to have truck scanned for diagnostic codes to determine the problem.
