Locate ABS relay for 1994 Mercury Sable

The ABS light came on two days ago and I filled up the brake fluid resevoir with dot3 brake fluid today. The light is still on so I think I need to look somewhere else. I need to find the ABS relay for my car. I might need to swap it out for a new one. I want to see if pulling the relay and then reinstalling it might fix it. I need to know before I bleed the brakes. Am I correct or am I missing something. It has been really cold here for the past few weeks.

    Thanks I did not know there were wheel sensors. I will research the wheel sensor subject because my girlfriend did slide the right wheel into a small snow bank when she was trying to make it up the driveway. Thank You

ABS light on problems are either the result of bad wheel sensors, bad connectors, or bad ABS relay.

The relay is usually mounted to the top of the ABS module (it was on my '01 Tahoe). And until mine went out, I didn't know these things were problematic. I found a place in Moscow, IA that rebuilds them for $150 and gives a 5 year warranty. You pull your off, send it to them, and have it back in less that a week.

Find their website by Googling ABS repair, Moscow, IA. They have a troubleshooting guide and everything on their website.

    Wheel sensors are mounted in the spindles and have a connector behind the wheel. The sensors can go bad, or the connectors corrode.

    You can normally get the ABS system scanned at an Auto Parts store and it will give you ABS related codes to begin to help you diagnose the problem.

Abs light

The warning light has very little to do with the hydraulic brake system.
The ABS system uses the hydraulic system to prevent the brakes from locking up.
You would need to have the body computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with repairs.

2002 mercury sable brake light on replaced pads and checked fluids

With the vehicle off, turn the key to the on position and see if there is an ABS light (usually yellow/amber). If so, the brake light is related to the emergency brake and the rear calipers aren't done correctly. If no ABS light, the brake light is most likely the indicator for the ABS system. a sensor is most likely unplugged, damaged or just knocked out of calibration with the ABS drum.

Buzzing noise coming from abs unit on start up, when he noise stops the abs light comes on ?

The light indicates a malfunction in the ABS (ALB) system. First, I would check your brake fluid level in the ABS unit (see pic, similar, I think). It should be between the max and min levels indicated on the front face of the reservoir. You should also check your regulator brake fluid reservoir to make sure the level there is correct. Dot3 or Dot4. If that is not the problem, then wheel sensors would be suspect, but that would be a Honda service indication.
Hope this helps you.75b78f9.jpg

Clutch pedal drops when I apply brake, so can't change gears

I suppose your clutch master or slave cylinder is leaking. You must keep an eye on the brake flui leven and drive to a workshop for a check asap. You can use DOT3 brake fluid.
