Check wiring at each wheel they could have pulled wiring when grabbing the tire when removing could be as simple as pushing sensor back in

2006 ford focus front right tire keeps locking up. can i take out the ABS system?

May not be the ABS, the ABS is meant to do the opposite, it may be that the Brake Caliper has gone bad, apparently is stays closed after releasing break pedal causing wheel to lock up.

I changed my front and rear brakes on my 2009 ford focus. hooked everything back up correctly, now my abs and traction control light came on. please help

Check the Wheel Speed Sensor's (WSS) on the backside of each wheel hub. Look for damage, broken wires and check all connections.

Abs light keeps coming on what do I do is my breaks bad or not please help I need to know. Thanks

You proberly have a bad wheel sensor that is causing the problem. When this light is one, you don't have the ABS braking feature in operation. You should have brakes, just not ABS. ABS braks are a saftey feature that helps prevent wheel skids on slippery roads.

Brakes all 4 lock up steering wheel shakes above

OK, when the ABS module is unplugged, the same results. That tells me that the ABS system is not working properly.
Did they look into the master cylinder and other abs related components?
Any ABS codes on it?

If steering wheel shakes above 50 mph that's likely to be the tires on it, rather than a brake problem.

Have tires balanced and rotated and inspected for out of roundness that might cause vibration above 50 mph.

I have a Ford Focus Est 1.8TDI left hand drive. Just recently we could hear a noicse coming from the rear right hand wheel. Today as I was driving to work we heard a fiarly loud crunch/bang. could see...

Sounds like your wheel bearing went bad and took out the toner ring. Or? Maybe brake pad broke off and did the damage. hard to tell without looking at it..

My abs light stays on on my ford focus

when the ABS light stays on it means there is a fault present in the ABS system and the ABS has been disabled, as long as the light is on u just have regular brakes with no ABS, there are many thinbgs that can turn the light on, most common is one of the wheel speed sensors is defective, since these sensors are about $75-100 each and there are 4 of them guessing is a poor idea, so what u need to do is have the ABS systwem tested, there will be a fault code present to help narrow down the defective part or wiring.

Wheels lock even though the car has ABS fitted

sounds like a drive pump issue to me but not understand why no light on unless someone has disconnected it for easier sales? but cars with abs are usually not designed to run without it and could be quite dangerous. it is a costly fix but prob better in garage hand. hope this helps

ABS hazard light is on , what should I check ?

Almost nothing! ABS warning lights first require an ABS code scan to find a starting point for vehicle service. Most of the ones I scan have wheel speed sensor failures, but sometimes those failures are caused by the sensors becoming disconnected from the system. Sometimes road debris will break a sensor wire, socket or other component close to the wheel. 96 Taurus will have a sensor for each front wheel which requires sensor wiring to each wheel as well, find the sensor wire (it will be a twisted pair of wires running to the wheel hub) follow it to the hub and make sure it's connected, look at the sensor and make sure it's not damaged. Do this at each wheel. If it has 4 wheel antilock brakes, there will be a sensor at each rear wheel as well, check them all. If you decide to remove wheels, be sure to properly support the vehicle with safety stands before you get underneath the vehicle. A jack is NOT a safe support while any part of your body is in danger from being crushed by the vehicle. If you do remove wheels, do a thorough brake inspection while the wheels are off. Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder, look for brake fluid leakage everywhere there are hydraulic lines or hoses, check the lining thicknesses of the disc brake pads and drum brake shoes. If you can't find an obvious mechanical failure, it's time for an ABS diagnostic. However if you find a visual sensor problem, and you successfully correct it, the ABS light will go off, after the system self test completes. Usually the system self test completes in 3 to 10 seconds. Here's another thing to keep in mind: The wheel speed sensors are sensitive enough to trigger the light due to a severely low tire. They also can detect a tire size mismatch so if you've replaced a tire lately pay attention to the size designations, they must match!
