I have had this scenario many times. It is usually one of two things...

1) Brakes are worn and need to be replaced (front pads/rotors)

2) One ore more of the ABS sensors are not reading correctly. This could be either a hub & bearing that need replacing, or just a sensor. It would need to be scanned and road tested to pinpoint the problem.

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

Brake light and abs light is on


Red lite comes on at startup to ck. system. If amber lite stays on, ck. brake fluid level and see if emergency brake is partly up. This shows problem with anti lock system if it stays on, not main brake system. If all is ok with this but still stays on Have ABS system checked. Haynes repair manual, 95-2003 Windstar, all models.

My ABS light and emergency brake light comes on everytime I start my Ford Windstar, and they stay on when I'm driving around, even though my brakes are not on. Anyone have any idea what this means?


I think it means the Antilock Brake System is disengaged. So, a code has been stored in the abs computer. Standard obd tester cannot check these codes, must visit your dealer or some autoshop with ABS reader.

According with the service manual: During starting the RED brake light should briefly come on and then go off. If the RED light stays on, it indicates a problem in the main braking system, such as a low fluid level, or the parking brake is still on.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

The ABS light stays on all the time, brakes are fine, checked all lights


You may need to make sure that Ford Factory pads have built in sensors on them. In many vehicles these built in sensors will cause the abs and brake lights illuminate when the brake pads wear down to a certain point. Also make sure to check your brake fluid regularly. I used to work for a Infiniti dealer in the service dept. When the brake fluid was low it caused the brake lights to come on as well. Just a few things you can check out yourself before taking it in to the dealer to check for codes.

Abs light stays on


It sounds like you have a bad sensor on one of the wheels.Sometimes you can take the veh to autozone or advanced auto parts and they can hook it up to thier scanner and tell you which one is bad(they do this for free) if they have an abs scanner.
