The first to check is the brackfluid level, its possible that the brackfluid is low, and some car's have a cut-out unit for savety.
If that is not the problem, try to remove the light units at the back of the car. It could be a wire that short out to earth (the body of the car.) Check all the wires to see if there's not one that make a short.

The ABS light is on and off. when it is on it will make a feeling of the front tires rolling under the car then the light will come on. you feel it in the peddle also with movement toward the floor while...


sounds like you have a abs sensor failing to read a signal on one wheel , car thinks that the wheel has locked up and as you press the brake it cuts the abs in and tries to release the brakes which is the noise your hearing and poss pulling to one side as you brake untill computer recognises a fault and shuts down the abs system which is when the abs light comes on, this pulling may indicate which one is faulty, it will need a abs sensor or signal ring on the drive shaft,usually a front one ! a damaged wheel bearing can cause an interupted signal to that sensor, failing that your abs pump is faulty, hopefully not the pump as this is very expensive

Abs light is on and brake light just come on. brake fluid is full and brakes seem ok


Most commonly a broken ABS sensor wire at one of the wheels. Can you test the car somewhere where you can invoke the ABS? The sensors can fail as well although it's the wire more likely.

We just purchased a 2004 Ford Focus. When we bought it the ABS light was on and figured since the brakes worked great....it wasn't a huge deal...got an excellent deal on the car. Later while driving...


You have an ABS System failure

Could and hopefully will only be a Wheel Speed Sensor

Next time educate yourself, and don't buy a vehicle
that needs repair.

If your going to buy a 10 year old Ford, buy a lincoln or mercury
full size, so you got something to work on that will last

The ABS,Brake Light,Battery light go on and off sporadically while driving.Does this indicate an Alternator failure or a sensor/computer problem?


yes it's most likely a alternator problem,usually the internal diode bridge breaks causing all lights you mentioned to come on,if this happens at a idle open the hood and remove green connector on alt.if lights go out you've found the problem
