99 ford expedition, abs light stays on, front brakes seem to be dragging

When was the last time you changed the front brake pads?
Try this:
Keep the brake pedal pressed down and start the car, after it idles for about 10 second let go of the pedal. If the light comes on just as you leave the pedal - try pumping it a few times, turn the car off and pump the pedal some more until it becomes real hard.
Then, keeping your foot to the pedal, start the car.
Idle for about 10 seconds, let go of the pedal and press it again rel fast.
If the light doesnt come on again - it means you have a leak of some sort or that the main brake pump should be replaced.

Good luck.

It just needs resetting.Hold each window switch down until you hear a click at the top and then go down all the way and hold until it clicks at the bottom of its travel.A low battery will cause this sometimes or a  battery change.Tony/Hills Motors, San Mateo, CA

Programing a remote on a 99 quest

first make sure,that the batter is ok. You will need to have both remotes while doing this.
1: get in and lock the doors with the power door lock
2: insert the key into the ignitoin repeatedly IN and OUT 6 times in a row or just keep doing so, until the hazard flashers flash on the dash board (observe the dash board while inserting key)
3: after the hazadrs flash TURN key into the ACC position/not start.(dash will light up) DO NOT START
4: with the key in ACC position, hit lock button on the remote. That will program that remote.
5: to program the other remote simply unlock the door with the door lock switch and relock it with the swithc and hit the other remote button.
6: done
