U WILL NEED TO HAVE THE DEALER RUN AN ABS TROUBLE CODE RETRIVAL TEST, THEN THAT WILL GIVE U THE CIRCUIT OR SENSOR TO CHECK FOR THE FAULT THAT IS TURNING THE LIGHT ON.

Front tire shakes when stepping on brake pedal


Front brake rotors can warp in heavy use. When it becomes warped it'll cause the steering wheel to shake when brakes are applied.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2003 mercury mountaineer brakes locking up abs light is on


Possibly has a bad wheel speed sensor or has a problem with the ABS control module and/or pump. Need to have the ABS codes pulled by a service center. Also, some auto parts stores can pull codes and may be able to pull ABS codes.

Abs light on wheels shaking


If your ABS light is light it could mean several things. First check to make sure that your parking break is all the way down. Secondly, it could be cause by you not having enough fluid for your breaks.

I have a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer with about 105K miles on it. I love the car, and want to keep it. I have several issues: 1. cruise control works intermittenly 2. dvd player does not work 3. abs...


#3.I replaced the hub bearing assembly on drivers side twice and the light stayed on and the brakes worked fine. It was the wires (visible just above the tire on the frame) that rubbed against the frame that had shorted out. It was simply repaired and clip-stripped up out of the way. The light has been off every since then.
#4.Go to an autozone or another auto store and they will plug in to your diagnostic port for free and give you any answers on any codes that come up. My light came on at 133kmi. and i disconnected the battery and it has been of since then. Although you should get some things serviced soon such as tune-up,transmission and general maintenance.
#2.My dvds get stuck and it works about 75% of the time. I just keep pushing the buttons until it plays. They are just junbk and need to be replaced.

My abs light comes on what does this mean


Anti lock brakes have many sensors that could fail, also some cars have a seperate brake fluid resevoir for ABS. If you have a second resevior labeled ABS check the fluid it may just be low. I am no expert in brakes, but I d know you will save money in the long run if you go to a guy who is rather than someone who troubleshoots by replacing parts out of your pocket. Also, what make and model is your car?

2003 Mountaineeer wont shift into Park


There is a shift interlock mechanism that only alows the key to come out in park. It is the same mechanism that will not let you put it into gear unless you put your foot on the brake. You cannot safely bypass it.
