There is no reset for this problem. When the ABS system is in working order the system runs a self-test upon initial key on and if all is well the abs light goes out. You need to have diagnostics ran on the abs sytem. If the problem wasn't there before the repair , suspect a problem caused by the repair. Did the new assemblies have the abs option? Did the abs sensors have to be removed or get damaged during repair?

hope this helps

SOURCE: after replacing the left front wheel bearing on a 2003 ford focus, the abs and traction warning light stay on

The bearings on the wheels has to be installed one way only, the rotor ring is built into the bearing and if installed the wrong way round the sensor cant pick up the wheel speed causing the ligt to be switched on in the cluster. The diagnostic equipment should pick this up as a fault once the car has been driven, it will see the sensor when you do the diagnostic if the car is standing still but once the car is moving and no signal is send from that wheel it would register a fault into the memory of the PCM that you would be able to retrieve later.
There is a way for you to test the sensor yourself by using a multimeter set on volts, you jack the vehicle up at that wheel, install a vehicle stand to support the vehicle to be safe, disconect the wheel speed sensor and probe the two wires into the sensor, spin the wheel by hand and a small amount of current will be produced meaning the the sensor is working and the wheel bearing is installed the correct way, you can also do a continuaty test on the sensor by switching the multimeter onto ohms, but be very carefull, if this sensor has three wires you cant do the continuaty test because of the integrated circuit in the sensor, the three wire sensors opperate on a voltage from 5Volt and it would be destroyed by the multimeter opperating on 9Volt.
If the continuaty test passes and the bearing is installed the correct way, the most comon fault would be a break in the wiring leading to the PCM
Hope this will be helpfull.

I put new bearing assemblies in rear 2006 Ford Freestar and now ABS/Traction control lights stay on. How can I find which is the diffective hub?


I can't say if you can meter the sensor or not looking for an AC voltage when the wheel is turning, but if you have the old hubs maybe you can sub them in one at a time, or re-mount one and see what the results are. If the issue goes away then the one you subbed is bad but if the light stays on then the other one is the culprit. Hopefully you haven't returned the old ones yet.

Yes it is possible that you have a bad wheel bearing which has the abs sensor in it. Hence the abs light on. Traction control utilizes the abs as inputs therefore traction control will come on.

Hi, the wheel speed sensor and tone ring are built into the bearing/hub assembly. Make sure the new hub contains an ABS wheel sensor and the cable was properly connected. If it is properly connected, the new hub may be defective.
