You think they work better, when the ABS is disabled the brakes go into safe mode bypassing the antilock brakes and the brakes will act just like the old style brakes, so when you lock them up you can't turn the steering wheel and you will skid instead of a quick slow down, I do not recommend removing the fuse for your ABS brakes. For instance if you hit Ice and hit the brakes you will hydroplane and spin out of control the same if you hit water. So if they are not working correctly they need to be fixed. I can go 60 miles an hour and slam on the brakes with ABS and have two wheels in the dirt and two on the pavement and I will stop going straight, when you do that with the standard brakes you will slide sideways and flip your rig. IF the brakes are not functioning right it will feel bad, if it feelsspongy you need to bleed the system you will need to replace the shoes the pads and turn the rotors and drums to make it work correctly, you take your life into your own hands an anyone that is driving towards you. I hope you reconsider.

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

Anti lock brakes light


Good Day,

Usually that indicates bad ABS sensor or ABS component in the system. The quick fix is to locate the ABS fuse in your fuse panel, remove this fuse and abs is disabled. Your brake will function normal and it is safe to drive w/o abs until you can have it checked out, keep in mind you will lock you brakes under heavy braking conditions.

hope this helps

Anti lock brake system


Good Day,

That's usually caused by a bad abs sensor and/or wheel bearing. The quick fix is to locate the fuse box, on that it should be on left side of the dash, only accesable with the driver's door open. Locate the fuse for ABS and remove it, ABS is now disabled, this will trip the ABS light on the dash, also keep in mind you will lock your brakes under heavy braking conditions.


Hope this helps
