Unfortunately the abs or anti-lock braking system consist of sometimes many complicated computer controlled components the only way to know for sure (without signs of major braking problems) (or tale tell signs) is to run the computer on a diagnostic scanner which give the error code for the problem ie:sensor x or y out of range pump malfunction etc. Depending on the year you may be able to find a cheap scanner online or at an auto parts store for @$30-@$120 or take it to a GOOD mechanic if you know one and have it diagnosed probably around @$60-$80 US or the dealer will check it and more than likely get it right for around @$80-$100 US

Abs error codes 16


I'm sure the code indicates that your ABS sensor went out. It's located in the front wheel hub assembly, and to change it, you need to replace the entire front bearing/hub assembly. They are about $150 per. But it the truck is handling ok and you can deal with the light, it's not a big deal since it's just a sensor....

2004 Ford Explorer ABS light on constantly and


I just had the same exact problem. The ABS light was on constanly, and the 4x4 high light flashes about 8 times, turns off for about 2-5 minutes, then flashes again for another 8 times and keeps repeating. In addition, I was also hearing and feeling a grinding and clunking noise going in reverse, and the steering wheel was difficult to turn. I changed a bad hub assembly on the front driver side and everything went away...fixed! I wouldn't let anybody tell me that the ABS system and the 4x4 system are not linked together. In fact, my local Ford service department assured me that I had two separate issues. Well, I only had one issue and it was a bad ABS sensor. I hope my exprience helps you.

Does your speedometer work ok? There is a sensor on top of your rear differential that provides a signal to both the abs and the computer(speedometer uses the signal from the computer) This sensor goes out pretty common.

ABS light


ABS STANDS FOR ANTI LOCK BRAKES. FIRST CHECK THAT YOU HAVE THE PROPER AMOUNT OF BRAKE FLUID. IF THE FLUID LEVELS ARE OKAY, THEN YOU PROBABLY HAVE A FAULTY ABS SENSOR.
