Question about 2006 Ford F-150

1 Answer

I drive for 20 to 40 miles(it varies) and my abs light comes on.

This is on a 2006 Ford F150 XLT.

When I stop and turn the engine off for a while, the whole process starts again. What is the most common cause of this? Can I get a scanner to troubleshoot this problem?

Thanks,
George.

    The ABS light comes on after driving my 2006 ford f150, for 20 to 40 miles, (It varies). It stays on until I stop and shut the engine off for a while. When I restart and drive, the whole process starts again. What is the most common cause of this problem? Can I purchase a scanner that will troubleshoot this problem?

    You can, but it would be a lot cheaper to have an independent garage scan your truck for ABS codes. Once you find out what code is flagging the light, I should be able to tell you what is wrong. ABS has a volatile memory, so every time you cycle the key the light will reset, but the code that set the light off will be retained in the memory of the ABS computer.

It sounds like you might be having a problem with your Electronic control module. Are the only codes coming up just for the sensor? Have you recently cleaned your engine or driven in very wet weather? If so, water could have gotten into your connections at the modules and causing odd codes. I hope this helps. Jay
