Question about 2001 Ford Focus
ABS & Tracking Lights on, car consistantly jumps and also has a tendancy to cut out. Have had many visits to the garage, but the problem still persists. I have had both front & back brakes replaced, fixed brake disks, alternator belt, tensioner, water pump, water tank, serviced....however, the problem still persist. Short of selling off the car, as its costing a small fortune to "fix"....what do you suggest?
Have you tried reading the trouble codes stored in the computer? That's always the FIRST step

I have the same issue, mostly when I turn the van on, the emr. brake light is on, then later the abs light comes on, my brakes work fine too..no squeking or anything...wierd, i was gonna take it to Ford and let them look at it, but a nothing issue will cost 500 bucks real quick, neway its mostly just annoying.

Prior to the brakes being replaced you more than likely had metal to metal contact which can throw metal shavings on the ABS wheel sensors. This metal shavings stick to the road grime on the wheel sensors showing the ABS computer a false reading making the ABS light come on. On Ford Windstars, the ABS light and the traction control light are on the same circuit. A simple (and cheap) fix is to pull the ABS wheel sensors and clean them with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. Make sure you dry them well and reinstall. On the Windstar there is one bold holding the sensors to the back of the wheels. I recommend you spray some WD40 on the bold and wait about 10 minutes before removing.
If this doesn't fix the ABS light and brakes, you can have the ABS system diagnosed at a shop for about an hour labor. (Usally about $100)
I have fixed many of these type of problems just by cleaning the ABS wheel sensors. Good luck.

SOURCE: Engine jumps while stopped. RPMs
Hey there, as far as yuor truck is concerned, you may need to check your throttle position sensor, if your truck is equipped with one, it may be bad and that would make your RPM jump and decrease dramatically....
