Question about 1994 Ford Thunderbird
The abs light on 3.8 v-6 comes on and stays flashing. Any help?
It means there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system! could be moisture in connections! Unless you're experienced with this system, you might consider taking it to a certified mechanic for repair!

SOURCE: abs light stays on
Usually means you need to have it serviced asap. This usually signifies the ABS sensor is bad or some other serious problem. While this light is on, your anti-lock brake system will not work, so it can cause serious problems if you need to stop in a hurry.

When the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. Meaning, when the abs is light is on and you brake, the tires will lock up with heavy braking.
Escapes have a common issue of the ABS excitor rings cracking causing ABS problems. Sometimes it activates on almost every brake application. It may set a code in the ABS computer for an intermitten wheel speed sensor or no wheel speed signal. Check all the "rings" on the outside of all four axleshafts. If none of the rings are cracked it is likely a bad ABS wheel speed sensor.

I just had the same exact problem. The ABS light was on constanly, and the 4x4 high light flashes about 8 times, turns off for about 2-5 minutes, then flashes again for another 8 times and keeps repeating. In addition, I was also hearing and feeling a grinding and clunking noise going in reverse, and the steering wheel was difficult to turn. I changed a bad hub assembly on the front driver side and everything went away...fixed! I wouldn't let anybody tell me that the ABS system and the 4x4 system are not linked together. In fact, my local Ford service department assured me that I had two separate issues. Well, I only had one issue and it was a bad ABS sensor. I hope my exprience helps you.
