How do i reset abs light 1996 f250

On this 1996 ford the abs will reset itself as you drive about 1/4 mile, if the light stays on then theres still a problem. the computer will test the system at every key cycle and when theres a problem the light will come on and after the repairs are made and the computers runs a test and it passes then the light is turned off.good day, no scan tool needed will reset on its own.

have you unhooked the negative battery cable after the repair was completed? this will erase all codes in your system. unhook it for about 10 minutes then hook it back up. your engine light should stay off if not then you have another problem.

Door ajar light stays on, leaving the interior and exterior lights on for about 25min after we park. 2003 f250. We cleaned the contacts and just fixed the power locks.

Try unhooking one of the battery cables and leave it off for at least 20 minutes. When you hook it back up the computers should re-boot. That has solved problems for me with heater, interior lites, power windows, AC, day time running lites, power mirrors, CD player, and wipers on GM autos and S-10 PU and Dodge trucks. None of the switches are connected to the device they control anymore. The switch tells the computer to open the window and the computer send a signal to the window motor. When the computer gets confused strange things will happen or not happen. Of course you may have to re-set your radio stations.

You have to fix the problem with the ABS first. If you have done this, you can reset the light by leaving the battery cable (negative cable) unhooked for 15 minutes. If you have a factory radio with OEM anti-theft, be sure you know the code before you unhook the battery.

How long do you leave your battery cables unhooked to reset an engine control modual on a 93 Ford f-250 diesel?

I usually wait 10 minutes. That is the amount of time it takes to clear "check engine codes" on a gas truck.
Haven't heard of ECM needing anything different.

2002 F250 4x2 SC - abs light comes on momentarily under hard acceleration, speedometer drops down at same time then pegs back up to normal speed. Coincides with tranny downshift. No loss of power, no wheel...

I bet you also lose the function of your cruise control when it happens. I would start first with checking the wiring connection on the vehicle speed sensor (also acts as abs sensor). Remove the sensor, clean it up and reinstall. If that doesn't work, replace the VSS.

You will find it on the top of your rear differential.

Side note: If you ever get stuck in the mud/snow and have to rock the truck forward/reverse, sometimes that will trigger your ABS light as well. This will normally reset itself after a few on/off cycles of the engine.

Abs light stays on

i believe you have to have the computers code cleared....try unhooking the battery for 10 minutes......that should clear out the computer.....if not bring to autozone or the local shop that runs odbc2 and tell them to clear the code.
