Question about 2006 Ford Escape XLT
This Warning is usually pretty accurate. There are revolution counters on each wheel and wiring which goes from the wheels to the ABS Master unit. If anything is interrupted, like signals going through the wires or the revolution counters, a Warning will appear. There are a few components which work with the Brakefluid, but usually an additional trouble light with a Brake symbol will appear.
A Scanner with the added circuits for testing the ABS can be attached to the car to diagnose the problem based on the computer Memories of the defect. Call ahead to Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys autoparts for FREE diagnosis IF they have the better Scanner capable of checking this for you.
Sometimes worn out brake material simply gets in the way of the sensors and you need new brake parts and service. Go to one of the autoparts places that have the correct scanner.

On vehicles equipped with antilock brakes (ABS), a second warning light is provided to warn if a problem occurs within the ABS system. The ABS lamp comes on when the ignition is turned on for a bulb check, then goes out after the engine starts. If the ABS warning light remains on or comes on while driving, it indicates a fault has occurred in the ABS system.
What happens next depends on the nature of the fault. On most applications, the ABS system disables itself if the ABS warning light comes on and remains on.
