Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
I am working on a 1999 Ford Taurus with and intermediate abs light. Connected it to the compter and it read "No response" from abs system. Anyone have any thoughts as to how to proceed from here?
I had same issue on my mustang. try here: www.cheapabs.com
after they fixed the towncar, I sent them a whole bunch from our taxi fleet of crown vics. No issues at all since they fixed them. I'm sure they can do the Taurus too. Ask for matt, he'll hook you up. his card says VW and Audi repair, but told me he does a lot of ford stuff too. hope this helps. -Abe

You can look up any codes & go from there
If no codes-- check for corrosion on abs module harness
Most likely you have a bad wheel speed sensor-- but need
the pcm to first run a check on abs at start up -then work
Near impossible without factory manuals
I only have 2004 ford gas eng manuals --but if you have codes
I can work on something

I have the same issue - I have the gage package and there is a small wire harness running from the back of the gages to the odometer area. The harness looks like a ribbon cable with about 10 or so wires in it. The wires are solid and break inside the insulation. I tested and found the broken (open) wire and soldered a wire in parallel around the open. This is kinda hard to do as the wires are really small. It can be tough to remove the gage assembly - look out for the headlight switch! I don't know if the small harness is available from Ford.

You have a bad ABS module. Had the same problem with my 2000 Taurus. The ABS module is a Bosch 5.3 You can have yours rebuilt for $170 or go to a junk yard and pull one from a 2000-2003 Taurus. Make sure its a traction control module if you have it on your car!

Its a faulty sensor switch on your brakes master cylinder. It leaks brake fluid into the wires that are plugged into it and causes a short in the circuit, resulting in a blown fuse that controls the AC, odometer, speedometer, cruise control, and ABS light to come on. This problem can also cause a fire. The fire can occur even when the vehicle is off. To fix this problem go to this URL - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/
