Question about 2000 Ford Mustang
2000 Mustang GT, Auto, conv. The ABS light is coming on in the mornings after about 10-20 minutes of driving (depending on the temp, Hotter it is the quicker it comes on). In the evenings on the way home, if it's in the mid eighties or higher the light will come on when I start the car and stay on for about 20 minutes or so then go off. I have about a 35 minute drive between home and work.
It sounds like your ABS sensor needs to be re gaped and cleaned, To keep it simple, just try cleaning them first with brake parts cleaner. Your going to need two cans, one for the front wheels and one for the rear wheels. Locate the ABS sensor on the wheel hub and spray it clean as possible and see if that fixed the problem, If the the problem still there then your going to have to get a feeler gauge and re gap the sensor to the speed ring on the wheel hub. Can not recall what the gap should be but you can get that from Auto Zone or any large Auto parts store when you pick up the brake parts cleaner and feeler gauge. Good luck and keep me posted. Oh ans almost for got to inspect the wire harness at the sensor to make sure there are no damages.
