In the event you have checked the ABS sensors at the wheels and assuming they are in good working order, you need to have the sensor if it has one at the differential hump checked. Fords SUV have them not sure if your vehicle has one. But if this sensor acts up, your abs light will stay on and sometimes your breaks will chattered as if the wheels were trying to lock up. Advise.

89 ford bronco 2 rear abs sensor light on and no power to radio fuses are good can anyone help also fuses for turn signal has been blowing Does anyone have a fuse box diagram

sounds like you have a hot ground somewhere. Check the wires for everything that doesn't work and make sure there are no bad spots where the power side is cut/damaged and grounding out.
The abs could have nothing to do with it, but either a bad connection/cut wire, or bad sensor.

ABS light stays on - can you unsolder relay in ECM with common iron.

ABS light on did they check codes ? The light staying on an no codes is usually a insturment cluster problem not the EBCM - electronic brake control module . No relay in side the module , a transistor or diver as they call them . This transistor will supply a ground on a electrical circuit from the brake lamp driver module ,when it does this the brake lamp driver module ground a electrical circuit for the ABS light . If anything is bad causing the ABS light to stay on it would be the brake lamp driver module . Your best bet ,take it to a GM service dept.

Abs light comes on when the ignition is on. why?

First I suggest to check fuses and scanned fault codes. Could be a problem with speed wheel sensor.

Abs and traction control light remain on.brakes were checked and are fine.any suggestions.

Most likely one of the wheel ABS sensors is defective, it makes the vehicle think that one wheel is turning at a different speed to the others which causes issues for both the ABS and the traction control.

Abs light is on my pick up truck but when i turn off the truck a running motor sounds under the truck. what does it means? and would it damaged my truck if i keep driving it?

OK, the ABS light being on is caused by a sensor that is pretty cheap, especailly since its just as easy to replace. The rear end/third member has a sensor on top in the middle. Remove the wire harness from the sensor, socket and 7/16 or 10mm should be right size. Unscrew, remove, replace with a new one, put screws back in, connect the plug. Light should go out. Keep in mind I dont know the year of your truck, but thats the ABS light issue. As to the noise your hearing, definately locate the exact source of where it is and go from their. It would be a good idea for anyone who has a car/truck, to have a Haynes or Chilton manual for the year make and model of that vehicle. Lots of good stuff in those books about everything. Good luck
