Can i un-A.B.S. MY 1997 ford falcon futura wagon,


the ABS is a system that allows wheels that have stopped turning under brakes to turn again momentarily
the brakes work through the abs system normally at all times from the booster and it is only when a wheel stops turning that the electric motor in the abs unit provides pressure to a line to compensate for the fluid returned by the valve in that line that was opened when the wheel stopped
you can disconnect power to the abs ( fuse ,relay) and the brakes will still operate normally except that when in extreme braking situations the wheels will lock up and steering control will be the same as pre abs cars ( side skid and not able to steer around an object)
there may be a abs light come on but you will have to live with that
best talk with an accredited brak specialist shop as they may have an idea as to what can be done to bypass the abs
remember that the abs is part of the vehicle safety requirements and in by passing it or making it inoperable you may be making the vehicle un-roadworthy for the purposes of inspection and insurance.

Abs for 2001 ford excape


The ABS is controlled from the sensors at the wheels . The sensors signal when the wheel stops turning and the ABS releases the brake pressure to that wheel to allow it to turn again while maintain pressure to the other brakes. It has nothing to do with weather conditions or road conditions-- just wheels turning under brakes Under normal driving and brake applications you will not notice ABS operation as it will not be working. You will only notice the ABS assistance when you are under very heavy brakes and the sensation is a pulsing in the brake pedal under your foot. Run the fault code to check for recorded faults in the ABS or have an accredited brake shop specialist check out your concerns

My ABS light came on, how long can I safely drive it before taking it in?


the ABS just prevents you from skidding, it does not affect the opperation of the brakes. So long as you dont slam on the breaks you will be fine, however it is always best to have all systems functioning properly.

the ABS light on my 2000 S-10 has been on for the last 15 months and I have never failed to stop.

That means there is a problem with your anti-lock brake system. should be looked at by a pro unless you are familiar with the new braking systems

Brake and abs lights stays on in a 2003 gmc safari wile driving after a small period of time. put new pads and there's no leaks in the calipers


Have the ABS Distribution Unit/Computer checked at the dealer.

NOTE: ABS Unit located under the vehicle, under the drivers seat. Listen to it with the vehicle running with no brake on... if you hear ABS motor running continuously, unplug ABS fuse in fuse block under hood to turn ABS motor off and be able to use vehicle in the meantime whether you decide to get the ABS fixed or not.. This will not affect brake operation, but will disable ABS feature. ABS and Brake idiot lights will remain on. No way to turn them off short of having the correct repair done. ABS Distribution Unit/Computer is very expensive part and requires expensive labour for replacement.

ABS light, Brake light, and trac control lights on no brake problems. have to turn off engine and restart to clesr lights 2001 windstar


You most likely have a problem with the ABS brake system. First, check your brake fluid level as many vehicles have a fluid level switch that monitors brake fluid level and if the level is low it can turn off the ABS and turn on all those lights.[ABS is part of the Trac control] If that is good then you may have a failing wheel speed sensor, wiring, or a problem with the ABS controller itself which would require having someone connecting to and reading the ABS service codes with a scan tool to identify what the system saw that caused it to turn itself off. Brakes are a very important safety item so you should get it repaired as soon as possible!
