Have vehicle scanned for trouble code possible abs sensor or hub going bad --when abs goes out you still have standard / conventional brakes [ means if you slam on brakes they will lock /skid ] but your brakes will work normal

What cause the airbag light on my instrument cluster to come on randomly then go off while driving down the road?


Check the under seat connector for the SRS system. These can corrode and cause intermittent connection. I would clean it, make sure the airbag fuse is disconnected! !!

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.

2005 ford escape. The ABS light is on and 4x4 flashing


You need to remove your tyres and clean the abs sensors well enough.

You might also change your brrake pads if they have gone bad.
