SOURCE: abs , traction lights on
I took STEGG's advise and I checked the exciter rings on the axles and I found that one was cracked and loose on the passenger side rear axel. The truck went to ford and because of the information I had about the exciter ring the repair was compleated in two hours and they told me that they could only replace the exciter ring insted of the whole axel. Total Cost for repair.$296.00.
Thank You so much for the info STEGG.

the grinding nose you heard was something rubbing on the rotor, bad brakes, caliper, after market wheels, etc. the pressure of a turn bends something enough to touch, this is produceing metal flake that attached to the magnetic sensor on the abs sending a light on because it couldn't read the tire position as it turned, it may have got blown off, washed off, but when it can read the tire again the light will go off, i would look into the grinding noise on cornering thats the cause of the problem. hope this helps
