Its not your brake pads. It is your ABS system. Only dealers are certified to work on the ABS systems. I would check all of your fuses prior to sending it to the dealership. You probaby have a bad sensor. Have you drove through water over your bumpers? IF so, then just take it to the dealer because you have shorted a sensor.

ABS light means a failure in the ABS system, brake pads not the issue.

Most likely need to take it to a shop to run the code for the brakes.

This can be a bigger problem, the ABS system consists of more then simple brake pads, it has sensors and computer equipment one of them has a fault. Try geting code data

Abs light staying on


The ABS light comes on when there is a malfuntion in the ABS system, not when the brakes are low. On a Ford you more than likely have a dirty sensor or pick up ring on the back side of the rotor. And no you do not have to change the rear drum brakes when changing your front pads but they should be inspected.
Usually you will change 2-3 sets of front pads before the rears need to be changed.

Abs light stays on, after changing brakes, 1997 caddy deville


ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.

Brake light comes on sporadically


Usually this means a piece of brakepad is loose and floating against the rotor. It can also mean there is rust or debris around the ABS sensors or in the emergency brakes.

You need to inspect the brakepads.

Abs light is on


This light means there is a problem in the brakes. You need to inspect the brakepads, check your brakefluid level, and look at the Rotors for deep scrapes.

The back Emergency brakes can also trigger an ABS warning. The E brakes are drum type and the Rotors must be removed to inspect them.

The ABS system is usually right. You can possibly lose your brakes or at the least make a repair more expensive by ignoring them. You can go to a specialty Brake shop, check the back of Telephone books for Coupons and get a discount. Most places will give you an estimate. But remember the parts are concealed and it will be an estimate.
