IT DEPENDS ON THE OPTIONS THAT CAME WITH THE VEHICLE. IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT IF THEY ALL HAVE ABS THEN LOOK ON THE BACK OF EACH WHEEL FOR A WIRE THAT GOES TO THE CENTER OF THE HUB SOMEWHERE. THAT WIRE GOES TO A RELUCTOR WHEEL THAT MEASURES VEHICLE SPEED AT EACH WHEEL. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

If yu van find the abs controller see if there are two lines or just one going to the rear. if its just one you have three way ABS. if two are going to the rear from the abs controller you have four way.

What makes the ABS MOTOR turn on and off . 1996 ford explorer. My ABS MOTOR WORK IF I hot WIRE IT To BATTERY. BUT WON'T WORK normal. ALL BRAKER AN FUSES REPLASED. IT QUIT WORKING AFTER I BLOW A tire


The ABS motor is controlled by the computer. The function is different for 2 wheel vs 4 wheel ABS. My guess is that you have 2 wheel ABS. Look at the write ups by Chris and Helmet. Basically the computer will compare engine speed and transmission speed to wheel rotation during braking. If very different, it will pulse the braking system to avoid skids and most effectively apply braking pressure.

I need to know what fuse to pull to disable abs system on 2006 explorer 2 wheel drive.


Educate me because I know of only hydraulic ABS systems only the dash light is electric, help me. Now there might be magnets and coils in the wheels sending a pulse of electricity to stop the brake or release and start the brake but these solenoids do go out to lunch, why the fuse?

When applying brakes on 99 Ford Explorer they feel good until just berfore stopping then it feels like a push back on pedal and a bit of chatter like the ABS is coming on. Doesn't feel right. No Problem...


I had the same problem with my 2002 Silverado. The grease seal on the right front wheel bearing went up letting grease build up on sensor . Disconnect ABS sensor wire at wheel one wheel at a time. Abs light on dash will come on but that's ok. drive and stop easy with wire disconnected until brakes feel normal. Then you will know wheel is the problem.

I have a 2009 ford explorer and after changing the front wheel bearings, my ABS lights came on, brake system lights came on and it says I should service the RSC. My engineer has done everything possible...


Nothing changed because you have to component test
to find problems with a part

Only if you understand the parts being tested & they fail a test,
do they get replaced

ALL VEHICLES since 1996 have those problems & lots more

You use the OBD2 Codes & reference material,trouble charts
and such, to diagnose the issues,that apparently wasn't your approach

Not a bad vehicle,just needs some proper figuring out

Once done & resolved, it seems simple, until the next event,
which will be about once a year on all vehicles

You may have an ABS Braking System issue
Changing the wheel hub brg assy ,assuming the
correct parts used,shouldn't put a problem in there

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport, recently I have been having problems with the ABS light, I had new brakes put on, but my brakes still are not working properly.


I would have the computer checked for trouble codes first.
If the hydraulic part of the ABS is faulty, it will apply pressure to a wheel even if you don't need it.
It measures wheel speed to see when a wheel is spinning or slipping and applies brake pressure to that wheel or the other three.
Or prevents you from applying the brakes.

have the ABS wheel sensors checked for broken wires or out of adjustment at the wheels where the pads were replaced
take it to an accredited brake professional shop that understands the connection between the abs operation and the autopilot operation

How do you blead the abs pump on a 1996 ford explorer


without a bleeder pump it is hard to do but you can do it by disconnecting the lines one at a time on the side going to the wheels, start the car have someone press on the brake and crack the line open do this till the air is out of the first line then go to next line and do all four lines, once you have done this then you will have to bleed the wheel cylinders starting from right rear or passenger side rear wheel the driver side wheel then passenger front side then driver side front, you will need engine running to power bleed the system, just stepping on the brake pedal without it running won't work, be sure not to let it run out of fluid as your bleeding the system or you could damage the abs system or the brake master cylinder.

1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on


The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

1996 ford taurus abs activates for no reason


this is normal, all abs systems are full time, if they weren't then the systems would be useless.
