This usually means its time to get your brakes changed. It also happens when your running low on brake fluid. It might not be low enough to stay on, but when the road gets rough the fluid is moving around enough to trigger your light. Also make sure your E brake is all the off. It might be close enough to the switch that vibration is causing it to make contact flashing your light. If you experience this during heavy braking then your running low on both fluid and maybe even pads.

2000 Lincoln ls 3.9: Sudden Flapping type noise and vibration when applying brakes. Possible ABS problem per brake specialist. Brakes in good condition. Is this a complicated, expensive repair? Thanks


Could be a problem that occurs in the rear emergency brake assembly, especially if a ABS warning light appears. The rear brakes have 2 sets of brake material, one that shows with the disc pads and the second, a hidden drum inside the rear brake rotor. This is for the emergency brakes on many Ford/Lincoln products.

What happens is the emergency brake material breaks off and gets ground up inside the drum and sometimes sets off the ABS lights.

Not a catastrophic expense but it can cost more or less depending where you go. There is a difference in replacement material thickness too, depending on brand. I do not know the opinion of other experts, but it is not a system you can maintain with any expectations of durability. There is just not enough room to do better.

Abs and brake lights on


Thats a big possibility. The abs light is on telling the driver the abs system is disabled. And the regular brake light could be on because the parking brake is not released.

Where is the fuse for the 2002 highlander ABS


The fuse for the ABS in a 2002 Highlander is in the black plastic covered box under the hood. If you take the fuse out, the ABS warning light and the emergency brake warning light will illuminate on your dashboard. The brakes will work as if you never had ABS, and the car will chime when you first start off if the emergency brakes are on.

Abs light on in my ford ranger 1999


ABS light tells you that there is some problem with the brake system like you have forgot to release the emergency brake or its time for you to change the brake fluid. Ford recommends to change the brake fluid every year.If you have recently refilled the brake fluid , check for any leaks.Abs light indicates that your braking system needs to be serviced.

Both brake and abs lights are on. I've replaced both front wheel hubs, and checked all fuses.cant seem to locate the problem


you have an ABS code in the ABS computer. You most likely damaged an ABS sensor. even after myouo fix this you will need to get the code cleared
NOTE: autozone wont be able to access the ABS computer.
