The easiest and simple should be fixed first . Turn off everything in your vehicle, radio, ac. lights, windshield wipers etc. Put the car in park , turn off the key. Disconnect the battery, wait 5 minutes. Without turning anything on in the car reconnect the battery, leave the car in park and start the car. Allow the car to sit and idle for 10 minutes. This allows the cars computer to reset all gauges and sensors uninterupted. If everything remains off including interior lights etc. the computer will not miss any steps in resetting. This step will also reset your cars idle.

2008 ford escape abs and traction control light is on, if the car sets over night the traction control light and abs lite doesn't come on until a few minutes and after the car sits around awhile the...


2008 Escape has a terrible reputation for ABS light and traction control light being. All due to broken ABS tone ring cracked and out of position flopping on frt bearing. Go to local AutoZone store and they will scan this to find which wheel has the broken tone ring. The replacement ring is cheap in the $7 range. It is labor that will sicken you as this ring must be pressed on after the front half shaft is removed. Not a driveway job if you are considering DYI.

Open the hood. Lift the battery cover, then there is a little black box on top of the battery. Open it. bet it is burnt and melted. Do NOT take it to the dealership. You'll pay $600 . You need an alternator cable and a new fuse block. 30min fix.

You can try to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and see if the ABS light clears. If not Autozone or Oreillys may have another scanner to fit the ABS diagnostic socket, a free test.

When you did the rear brakes, the emergency brakes inside the rear rotors can sometimes crumble. Need to clean sensors because dirt and brake debris will keep sensors from counting wheel revolutions.

You could also have a ABS diverter valve stuck and not centered. Sometimes its necessary to rebleed to center the part and clear the light.

2003 dodge ram 1500 abs & brake light came on. also cruise does not work. any suggestions


Problem: I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 L HEMI. My ABS and Parking Brake lights were illuminated, and my speedometer needle would "bounce". Also when sitting at a stop sign or just sitting idle, the engine would stall, and often times stop running.

Solution: After long research on this problem, I decided to dig in and try to find the problem myself. I replaced the Rear ABS Sensor
($35) that's located on top of the rear differential. Still no fix. I then unplugged the ABS Controller (or Module) that's located directly behind the battery (You should see the metal brake lines running into the top of it.) When I unplugged it, I noticed LOTS of moisture in the plug. Using an air hose, I blew out the water and let it dry good. When I plugged it back in, and hooked the negative battery terminal back up THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED!! Simple fix. Hope this helps.

99 ford expedition, abs light stays on, front brakes seem to be dragging


When was the last time you changed the front brake pads?
Try this:
Keep the brake pedal pressed down and start the car, after it idles for about 10 second let go of the pedal. If the light comes on just as you leave the pedal - try pumping it a few times, turn the car off and pump the pedal some more until it becomes real hard.
Then, keeping your foot to the pedal, start the car.
Idle for about 10 seconds, let go of the pedal and press it again rel fast.
If the light doesnt come on again - it means you have a leak of some sort or that the main brake pump should be replaced.

Good luck.

ABS LIGHT STAYING ON


Hi there,
If the light is on it means the ABS computer has detected a fault and it is disabled at present. You can try removing the negative battery terminal for 10 minutes then put it back on. Let the car idle for another 10 minutes and go for a drive . Try a couple of hard braking till the wheels lock. See what happens with the light. If it stays on then you'll have to get the computer scanned at the dealer's.
Let me know how you get on.
Cheers.
