SOURCE: 2004 Ford Explorer ABS light on constantly and

I just had the same exact problem. The ABS light was on constanly, and the 4x4 high light flashes about 8 times, turns off for about 2-5 minutes, then flashes again for another 8 times and keeps repeating. In addition, I was also hearing and feeling a grinding and clunking noise going in reverse, and the steering wheel was difficult to turn. I changed a bad hub assembly on the front driver side and everything went away...fixed! I wouldn't let anybody tell me that the ABS system and the 4x4 system are not linked together. In fact, my local Ford service department assured me that I had two separate issues. Well, I only had one issue and it was a bad ABS sensor. I hope my exprience helps you.

SOURCE: ABS Light / Sensor on 1996 Ford Explorer

the rear one is a single sensor and is located in the top of the rear differential , unplug it and take the retaining bolt out and it pops straight up out of the differential. the front has 1 for each wheel,and is located on the backside of the wheel hub. take the tire off and look on back side of hub it should be the only sensor thare and is anchored with one bolt then just fallow the wire to its disconnect point. this vehicle is known to have problems with the rear sensor so i would replace it first and see if this fixes the problem

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on

The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

Abs light on/grinding and clunking in turns on front left side of 2003 ford explorer


Sounds like left front loose wheel bearing knocking ABS sensor out of range causing ABS light to come on and causing grind noise at same location. Grinding noise is probably rotor rubbing on calipar.

WHY DOES THE SBS LIGHT COME INTERMITTLY


Sensors, tone rings, wiring, fuses or the actual module itself are all possible causes. If the front and rear wheels/tires are different sizes, that will also set of the ABS light...however since you said it comes on and goes off later, i would suggest checking the magnetic piece near the tone ring. Make sure it hasn't picked up a bunch of shaved metal or anything.

ABS Light Stays On


Since you replaced the pick up units or sensors, check the tone rings on the axle shafts. The tone rings is what the sensors detect and are located at each wheel that has ABS. A tone ring looks like this:

1_3_2013_9_47_55_pm.jpg
This tone ring is on a Ford Ranger - which is pretty much the same as your Mointaineer. Notice the break in the tone ring. This will cause an ABS Fault indicator and will need to be replaced to extinguish the lamp. Check the brake fluid level and top off if needed.


Try another AutoZone or similiar to get a code and be non-specific about the light - just say a light came on on the dash and you don't know what it is about.

Good luck!

2005 ford escape tone ring replacement


I assume your referring to a front or rear drive axle

You will have to remove the axle & replace them

There may be ways to stake it in place, if it isn't split
around it's diameter

The tone ring you can see on the outer ends of the axles,
it has about 25 teeth on it & is used with the ABS Braking System
for a variety of things

How to clean the abs tone ring on a 2004 X-Type Jaguar


Sometimes the Tone ring can be cleaned and the problem is corrected. It has to be carefully inspected to be sure it hasn't split or become broken or teeth are missing. Spinning the rear wheel will involve jacking up the back of the vehicle on jack stands so the wheel can be rotated for inspection of the ring.

Hello my abs light is on constantly and the 4x4 high light flashes can you tell me how to fix


For your car when the ABS light comes on the 4x4 light is triggered as well. Run a scan on the car to be sure. However a broken or cracked tone/impulse ring can cause this. Have them checked. Even if you replace parts, a scan tool will be needed to clear the MILs ( malfunction indicator lights)

The ABS has been deactivated but the normal barkes are still active. This is why your brakes run fine now. You might have damaged the sensors or the tone ring. The tone ring is made up of teeth that the sensor reads. If one of them are damaged, the computer will miss diagnose your problem and the ABS light will turn on. Good luck!

2008 Escape has a terrible reputation for ABS light and traction control light being. All due to broken ABS tone ring cracked and out of position flopping on frt bearing. Go to local AutoZone store and they will scan this to find which wheel has the broken tone ring. The replacement ring is cheap in the $7 range. It is labor that will sicken you as this ring must be pressed on after the front half shaft is removed. Not a driveway job if you are considering DYI.

The ABS light came on (stayed on) and the 4X4 HIGH light flashes. There is also a noticable grinding/rubbing noise coming from the front wheel-well when I'm making a sharp turn, going out of a tight space...


Here is my question

The ABS Light is on. For how long,and why are you here,v.s. having it checked out and repaired.
The grinding/etc,would have me putting the vehicle up on stands immediately, and checking it out. I would in no way drive it,like that

Sounds as though your wheel bearing,tone ring,abs sensor etc ,are being chewed up, and causing the code to set
