If the ABS light is on then there is a fault in the anti lock brake system . This system monitor all the wheel speed and determines what wheels to apply the brakes to during a panic stop. The ABS light will have to be diagnosed by a qualified technican.

SOURCE: ABS Light / Sensor on 1996 Ford Explorer

the rear one is a single sensor and is located in the top of the rear differential , unplug it and take the retaining bolt out and it pops straight up out of the differential. the front has 1 for each wheel,and is located on the backside of the wheel hub. take the tire off and look on back side of hub it should be the only sensor thare and is anchored with one bolt then just fallow the wire to its disconnect point. this vehicle is known to have problems with the rear sensor so i would replace it first and see if this fixes the problem

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.......

First question is: have you recently done, or had done, replacement of bearing hub assemblies or brakes? If so, check the wheel speed sensors on those wheel hubs. Second, look for the connectors, located less than 2 ft away from the hubs, and ensure they are snug. Much of the diagnostic work after the above has to be done by the dealer- these are of course complicated and sensitive systems. But there's no need in spending the cash unless you're sure it's a complicated breakdown.

Code b2900 on a 2003 ford explorer


This is an ABS code. Have codes read by someone with a scan tool that can read ABS codes. For some cars, this means the ABS unit does not match the vehicles VIN number. I would try cleaning the wiring plug to the ABS unit.

My ABS light stays on, Can the ABS system cause my rear wheels to heat up? (To hot to touch) 2003 ford explorer.


Remove the ABS fuse to disable the ABS system . The brakes will work as NORMAL brakes and you will now see if the rear brakes heat up. They more than likely will as the ABS would not have any effect on the brakes in normal running situations.
Suggest take the vehicle to a GOOD brake shop and get them to fix the problem

Abs light on/grinding and clunking in turns on front left side of 2003 ford explorer


Sounds like left front loose wheel bearing knocking ABS sensor out of range causing ABS light to come on and causing grind noise at same location. Grinding noise is probably rotor rubbing on calipar.

My ABS light is on all the time. The other day i felt the brake paddle shaking under my foot? Does that mean my brake is failing and how bad is this? Does ABS light on indicate a brake failure i.e. that...


The ABS light being on means that there is a problem with the ABS, but not the basic braking system. The "shaking" in the pedal you felt is probably a warped rotor. This common on Ford vehicles.
An ABS failure usually is related to the wheel sensors being defective or dirt buildup.
