This problem is better delt with a dealer or up to date shop, there are a multitude of things that could be wrong, wheel speed sensor short, internal abs module problem, wiring for the abs module(pcm to abs communication or vise verse) this is one of those situations where you need the dealership computer communication to see what is going on.
the only thing you can do is check wiring at the moment, the abs will need to be "talked" to find the issue faster.

2001 ford f150 supercab XLT (i think) with short bed, 4.2 L V6, 5 speed manual, styleside (i think). Check engine light on, codes say 02 sensor. How many do I need to buy??? I keep reading different...

bank 1 sensors you have 2 on exhaust bank 2 you have 2 sensors there are 4 02 sensors they range in cost of $75.00 each it will be much easier to replace one at a time. reset your computer each time by disconnecting the positive cable from your battery for 10 mins. each time. you can do this several times, or you can take it to mechanic that has code reader to tell you which is bad. $75.00 minumal cost. you can reset the computer in the truck by disconnecting the positive cable from the battery for 5 to 10 minutes,10 recommened. this will make the light go of, but if you have a bad 02 sensor it will come back on.your 02 sensors are in the exhaust system just behind the motor. hard to get to,need special tool to remove them,but you can purchase at autozone,or advance auto for $20.00 for the tool. the 02 sensors range in price $75.00 each to $85.00 and can go higher. you need to be sure which is bad. or be prepared to pay.hope this helps and thank you for we are here 24/7 to assist thank you!

I have a 2002 1500 4X4 suburban it started with oil leak so a macanic took tranny out to put rear main seal new and everything back together now security light flashes and wont start

try one simple thing, reset the computer by disconnecting positive cable from battery for 10 mins.also make sure the crankshaft sensor is plugged back in,will not start without it.he may have missed it when removal of may even have to reset the trucks computer,disconnect the positive cable from battery for 10mins.. this will accept any new products,i'm sure they had to unplug the 02 sensors to remove the transmission! this will help, is it getting fuel? if not,try fuel pump fuse,or relay. is it getting fire to plugs? if not, something is not plugged back in right. suggest you check under and on top of motor for a missed plug in. it was running when they replaced rear seal?go from there. hope this helps and thank you for choosing chat support is available,phone support also.
