    you can't, my 99 had this problem and I found the right side wiring harness laying on the exhaust manifold, i moved it and tied it up, and my light went away, check your front sensor wires under hood at the wheels

Some auto parts stores will read the codes for free, such as AutoZone. Without the code, it's hard to guess. For example, it could be any of the four wheel sensors.

Fix abs light to go off and 4wh drive light flashing


The ABS is connected to the traction control system. When the ABS fails that light flashes and so does the 4 wheel drive. The problem could be a lot of things: Wrong or worn tires, under inflated tires, bad sensor at the wheel, brake system problem.

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.

Wen I began driving my 2000 ford focus zx3.and reaches speed of twenty MPH my abs indicator light comes on and my left front ABS begins to engage itself to attempt to stop my car. This situation continues...


If the abs light comes on before the front wheel starts acting crazy then it sounds like a different problem..Because when the abs light comes on it turns the system off..it shouldnt activate while the lights on..Check out that wheel and make sure there is no other problems

ABS light on and 4x4 light is blinking


Have someone check the wheel speed sensors. One is probably bad and not sending data to the computer. This will shut off your ABS system and all-wheel drive, because the system can't read the speed of one of your wheels. It needs input from all 4 wheels for the systems to work.

'98 Windstar ABS and traction control lights after getting brakes done


Prior to the brakes being replaced you more than likely had metal to metal contact which can throw metal shavings on the ABS wheel sensors. This metal shavings stick to the road grime on the wheel sensors showing the ABS computer a false reading making the ABS light come on. On Ford Windstars, the ABS light and the traction control light are on the same circuit. A simple (and cheap) fix is to pull the ABS wheel sensors and clean them with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. Make sure you dry them well and reinstall. On the Windstar there is one bold holding the sensors to the back of the wheels. I recommend you spray some WD40 on the bold and wait about 10 minutes before removing.
If this doesn't fix the ABS light and brakes, you can have the ABS system diagnosed at a shop for about an hour labor. (Usally about $100)
I have fixed many of these type of problems just by cleaning the ABS wheel sensors. Good luck.
