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.

SOURCE: ABS LIGHT COMES ON AND DISENGAGES THE ABS BUT

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.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Explorer ABS light on constantly and

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.

Abs light stays on and is flashing a i think acode


hi Robert

you can check the ABS fault code as following:

switch ignition on and wait for the abs light to start to flash.
it will flash in long and short flashes, long flash stands for ten, short flash stands for one, there is a short pause in between, and long pause after each code, take a note of the code and Google it
good luck

Check to see if the plugs on the wheels are plugged in check that the pins are all the way into socket, that your ABS problem, next check to see if you knocked loose the wire on the differential most likely cause and be sure to top off power steering fluid.

ABS/CHECK ADVTRAC/SKIDDING CAR LIGHTS GO ON


The abs sensors also control the traction control and 4 wheel drive actuators so if one of the sensors is faulty the traction control will be disabled and the drive system will be stuck in the mode set at time of failure be that 4x4 or 2wd
get the abs system repaired

Brake, ABS,STC,CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ON.


I had the same problem which was diagnosed incorrectly 3 times
Could be one of 2 things you may want to check
Have a tech read your codes
Have the ABS Control Module checked by a technician. If that is ok then make sure they look at the altenator
In my case, I was getting voltage spikes that were shorting out system controls -the ABS Control Module and the battery, etc. Once they put in a new altenator, the problem was fixed.
