I have a 2005 Eddie Bauer edition Explorer and I just went throught this problem last week. I first want to say I know less about cars than the average guy so I took it to a "family mechanic" he said I had a bad wheel bearing on the front passenger side. I went to Autozone and got the Duralast wheel bearing hub assembly w/ABS sensor and some new brake pads since I was taking the wheels off anyway. Bought a Haynes manual and used a friends garage and changed the hub assembly in a couple hours and the problem is fixed. So the thing I learned is don't start throwing expensive parts at it until you can get an "HONEST" diagnosis of the issue. Hope this helps you and others

Unfortunately there are several possibilities that are common to causing the light to come on. I would suggest taking the car in to a dealer and having them read out the fault memory. Such possibilities are a failed speed sensor, a binding DSC/ACS actuator cable, or faulty DCS/ASC control unit. If you know how, you can disconnect the speed sensors, and check for voltage output across the the terminals inside the connector going to the speed sensor while rotating the wheel. A dealer should charge you about an 1hour fee to check out your system. Due to the cost of parts involved, I would recommend having it checked before just guessing.

You have problem somewhere which needs to be fixed. Could be mice eating your wiring or some other short-circuiting fault.
Better to take it to the service and let a couple of professionals to look at it.

the easiest thing to do is scan the ABS module for codes. The trouble codes will direct you to the wheel/wheels that are giving you the problems. The two common causes for this is bad front wheel bearings or bad front wheel speed sensors. Since the light comes on and stays on after you start the vehicle I would bet there is a speed sensor issue or the wiring in the front wheel wells is corroded. Guessing at what the problem is can be time consuming and costly. Get the trouble codes and go from there.
