Question about 1997 Mercury Mountaineer
I don't have a manual for my mountaineer, so I don't know if it's a fuse blown or the bulb itself.

Go to the local parts store, have them check the codes (they will do this for free usually). It will tell you what sensor needs to be checked/replaced. Once the part is replaced, it will clear on its own. They can also reset the code, but it will come back if the trouble persists.

My 2002 M Mountaineer had the same problem and was fixed by reading the code that showed a leak in the gas tank pressure via the cap. When I replaced this with a good after market cap and drove the car for a while and it cleared itself. A mechanic told me that's not possible, but it did clear and has not lit up except on start up where it lights for a few seconds to test the bulb - a normal function.

SOURCE: i need fuse bx information
If the abs light comes on than the fuses are good. If the abs light did not come on when you turned the key on than I would be suspicious of a fuse or relay failure. The first thing you need to do is have the abs module scanned for codes. You local auto parts store may do this for you for free otherwise you can either spend a couple hundred dollars on an abs scan tool or pay for an abs diagnostic charge at your local auto shop. Once you know what code or codes are causing the light to come on you will have a much better idea opt what the problem is. To things that will help you out. 1. If the abs light comes on when you start the car and then goes out until your start to drive than it is likely you have a speed sensor that is going bad, or possible a wheel bearing that is getting sloppy and causing excessive air gap. 2. If the light comes on and never goes out than the abs system is failing it's self test. The first thing I would do is ohm check all four wheel speed sensors (1998 might only have three, one on each front wheel and one in the rear differential). If one is open or low on resistance than it is bad. Hope that helps.

Left side,Drivers side
Either in the converter inlet or just ahead if it
Bank (1) Pass Side
Bank (2) Drivers Side
Sensor (1) closest to engine
Sensor (2) monitor sensor in outlet of converter
An O2 Code does not mean it is bad or needs to be replaced.
Could be any number of other causes that set a MIL Lamp
