    try bleeding all your brake lines also and your abs system in in the hood i fluid line runs from the brake cylinder to the abs system you might have to change it.

The abs lighton my 2000 mercury mystique comes on and the brakes make loud noise


The noise you hear from the brakes? is it a scraping grinding noise? if so your metal to metal on one or more of your wheels and that can cause the ABS to mal-funtion. If the brakes are good then it sounds like the ABS module is failing. I wouldn't remove the fuse because other systems may be relying on that fuse to work. Find the ABS module and dis-connect it. To find out more information on your ABS system go to your local library.

Brake light (in dash) intermittently comes on when I accelerate after a stop, then goes off.


Does the car have ABS? Sometimes the brake light indicates a problem with the ABS sensors.

My 2002 Lincoln LS v6 Lost Engine Power,Traction Control Light was flashing & ABS light Came on! ANY IDEA?


Had the same problem with my 2002 Lincoln LS, it was a bad wheel speed sensor. The right front wheel bearing had some play in it, so I had the hub assembly replaced. The hub assembly comes with a new wheel speed sensor attached. After I replaced the hub assmbly with sensor, the ABS and Traction Control lights went off. No problem since!

I have a 1998 Mercury Mistique. The heater fan is not working. It's located under dash but I want to know if I can get to it from the glove box.


Yes you can. Open the glove box then "lightly" pry the the sides of the glove bix inword. If you do 1 side at a time it makes it a little easyer. When you open the glove box, if you look between the box and the dash you should find a white plastic stoper on either side. You can "lightly" pry the box to move it past the stopers and it will flop open exposing the blower moter. note: empty the glove box before you do this. I know any idioty would know to do this right....... not this one. sometimes i amaze my self at how stupid i can be LOL o well..... hope that helps :)

1999 chevrolet LS malibu V6, ABS light comes on


yes it is safe -your brakes will work normally only difference u will see is if u hit[stomp] on the brake hard will cause wheels to lock up[skid] check the sensors wiring ,connections and connection to clips the sensor is incorporated into the wheel hub but the wiring and clips connections are exposed which can get damaged or hit by road debris -if u remove the wheel will see wire running into back of rotor --to replace will have to replace the whole hub[wheel bearing] average price about $80 for part if diy

Dash warning light


on the 93 there is a problem with the abs system. there are several things that could be wrong. if i remember correctly the module is behind the passenger side kick panel. you will find a single wire coming off the module. if you ground it then turn on the key it will flash the brake lights in the dash. count the flashes this is the code for the error. it will help in the repair. as for the second truck you have a leak that needs repaired.
