SOURCE: 99 ford expedition, abs light stays on, front

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.

SOURCE: my abs light stays on on my ford focus

when the ABS light stays on it means there is a fault present in the ABS system and the ABS has been disabled, as long as the light is on u just have regular brakes with no ABS, there are many thinbgs that can turn the light on, most common is one of the wheel speed sensors is defective, since these sensors are about $75-100 each and there are 4 of them guessing is a poor idea, so what u need to do is have the ABS systwem tested, there will be a fault code present to help narrow down the defective part or wiring.

SOURCE: ABS & traction control just went out on 2008 Ford Escape.

Chances are it is a bad ABS sensor. Need to get scanned to know for sure and which one.
Not much i know but I hope that helps.

it is an indication that the ABS system is not working. As it is a safety requirement for the road authority then not to have it fixed asap will result in a fine or a death So it could be considered dangerous.

How to fet the abs light off


on most ford cars and trucks the dash lite ABS should lite up when first starting engine then after it self tests itself the light should go out ,if the light stays on it's an indication that the self test has detected a problem with the ABS system, and in case you don't know what ABS stands for thats ANTI LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM yes thats the things that stop your car when you depress the pedal , so thats telling you theres a fault with that, it will require a code reader to get more specific of what the problem is , and as i've said before most national autoparts stores will ck fault codes for free ,they just want to sell you the part to fix it

My ABS light and emergency brake light comes on everytime I start my Ford Windstar, and they stay on when I'm driving around, even though my brakes are not on. Anyone have any idea what this means?


I think it means the Antilock Brake System is disengaged. So, a code has been stored in the abs computer. Standard obd tester cannot check these codes, must visit your dealer or some autoshop with ABS reader.

According with the service manual: During starting the RED brake light should briefly come on and then go off. If the RED light stays on, it indicates a problem in the main braking system, such as a low fluid level, or the parking brake is still on.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Abs light troubles


Possibly have a bad speed sensor or something else. You will need to have it hooked to a computer to find out what is going on with it.

Abs light emergency light stay on


Hi, You should check for a sligt break fluid leak from the break light switch (attacked to the master cylinder). Yeah, I know this seems strange, but on my 2001 this leak caused all types of problems with lots of dashboard indicators. The leaking switch was a recall for Ford Trucks, but not the minivans. Hope this helps
