First check your battery and cables... a dying battery and/ or corroded, loose cables may be the cause all those problems

If you don't have the owner's manual, you can get a PDF file of it from a USA ford website: Google search 2005 ford focus owners manual

The battery light means bad battery, alternator, or wires

Oil light means low oil level, bad oil sensor or bad wire to sensor

Abs light, check brakes or wiring to speed sensors or abs computer

Orange check engine light, a sensor or other electrical part has failed or wire broken to that sensor. You will need an obd2 scanner to find out trouble codes!

But, if ALL OF THE LIGHTS ARE ON while car is running, you really need to check and make sure the battery and charging system is OK FIRST

1992 fuel injection 2.6 idle high and loping?


The brake and ABS lights could be on because of a brake or ABS problem. The ABS system uses the hydraulic brake system in addition to the ABS components.
The high idle could be a vac leak or a problem with the idle air control valve. You could check the computer for trouble codes even if the warning light does not stay on.

My ABS light showin my my dash board and it was scanned my mitsubishi. Presently the light is still showing and when I break, I hear some noise as if the break pad is pad. I currently have new beak pad...


Hi,

New brake pads require 'wearing in' and may make a scraping sound for the first 50km or so.

Re ABS

First, I suggest you remove the PCM "Fuse" (in the main junction box, under bonnet) for 10secs, then re-insert. If you cannot find fuse, then disconnect NEG battery cable for 10secs. This will reset your PCM.

Start engine and allow to idle for 15mins (this allows the PCM to re-learn settings).

Drive car a short distance to determine if ABS light comes back on. If ABS light does come back on, then have the PCM scanned for fault codes. This will identify which ABS component is causing the (warning light) problem.

If light remains off (and the pads are worn in), but you still have scraping noise, then something else is causing this problem and will require further investigation.

Why is the Vsa and abs staying on in 2005 honda crv?


Hi did you check your tire pressures and brake fluid level? That would be where I would start to look. If you have changed your tires or adjusted your tires you may need to reset your VSA.
Else you may have a speed sensor issue.

My ABS, brake and oil lights keep coming on at the same time, flashing for a few minutes and then going back off. This happens very randomly, sometimes lasting for seconds, sometimes lasting for up to 20...


Its exactly the abs module! and its keeping the ecu from communicating with the rest of the car, when you remove the module your tac will come back alive and the oil light will turn off. There is way to trick the ecu to thinking the abs module is working but it involves taking out the module, it is fairly simple. My email address is superbikevoodoo@yahoo.com, email me, and I will give you pictures and instructions on what to do. Its really easy, your abs and break light will go off along with the beeping!

2003 dodge ram 1500 abs & brake light came on. also cruise does not work. any suggestions


Problem: I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 L HEMI. My ABS and Parking Brake lights were illuminated, and my speedometer needle would "bounce". Also when sitting at a stop sign or just sitting idle, the engine would stall, and often times stop running.

Solution: After long research on this problem, I decided to dig in and try to find the problem myself. I replaced the Rear ABS Sensor
($35) that's located on top of the rear differential. Still no fix. I then unplugged the ABS Controller (or Module) that's located directly behind the battery (You should see the metal brake lines running into the top of it.) When I unplugged it, I noticed LOTS of moisture in the plug. Using an air hose, I blew out the water and let it dry good. When I plugged it back in, and hooked the negative battery terminal back up THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED!! Simple fix. Hope this helps.

Oil Pressure Light and Beep Alarm after 5 or 10 MPH


On the Brakes, take each wheel off in turn, and check each wheel HUB in turn to ensure there is no break or chafe on the exposed cable, or that a plug in has not disconnected.
At the same time check that each HUB exciter ring for ABS sensor is clean and not broken/missing.
Then check that each ABS sensor which is located on each back mount, is clean and air gap set at approx. minimum of .010 inch [10 thous. of an inch] between the "nose" of the sensor and the exciter ring on the HUB.
I would need to know about the OIL pressure problem.
Is it the LOW OIL pressure lamp that was glowing continuously, or the Pressure Gauge reading that is "acting up"?

Oil light and brake lights blinks on and off and abs light is on


Just a idea. If the car is running at idle and the oil light blinks , it usually from low oil pressure. At a idle your seeing the light respond to the revolutions of the engine. ! thing to try is to replace the oil pressure switch on the engine block. And #2, Most causes in a VW is that the vehicle overheated at one time and weekend the oil pump,or massive amount of miles.
