There is a steel ring with cogs on it that engages the ABS they crack .You need it on a lift to see,they are behind the rotor its a $37 part but a lot of labor

The part the other person was referring to for $37 +/- used to be about #12. The only comment I have is that it seems Ford, even through they surely have been aware of this problem in Escapes for years, has not bothered to do anything to fix it. I don't believe it is related to your brakes per se..at least it never was to mine...however having said that the light first appeared when I had 4 new tires put on my vehicle. It was checked by ford dealers, other mechanics and I have researched it till I am totally over it and still the light blinks.One would think that Ford has had enough grief about this problem that it would have been addressed but then again....Ford isn't the Ford of yesteryear. Test: See if the light blinks approx. every .8 mile and blinks for about 8 times. If it does welcome to the Ford Escape insanity light club.

2005 Ford Escape - have awd. When i encounter bad roads, the 4wd light flashes. It resets it self when i shut off the ignition; however my abs light has never come on and their were no error codes o


Usually it means there is a component of the system that is not working. It could be a sensor or mechanical problem.
You'll probably need to take it to a dealer or major shop to get it tested.

2006 ford escape.. #1. abs light on & stays on. #2. 4wd light comes on,flashes 8 times then gos off


Changing the sensors &/or tone ring may work temporarily but it won't last. I have a 2005 and have had it done and it kept happening. Had it serviced at dealer, asked dealer how to fix it or make light go out and on and on....after I think 5 yrs. it is still on. It hasn't affected my vehicle as far as I can tell. Comes on blinks 8 times, goes off....drive another 8/10ths of a mile and it comes back on, flashes eight times...and so it goes tidily bomMust be an Escape kinda thing.

2006 ford escape - abs and 4wd lights on yesterday - off today - brakes checked - ok - right turn makes grinding noise with slight application of brake -


the grinding nose you heard was something rubbing on the rotor, bad brakes, caliper, after market wheels, etc. the pressure of a turn bends something enough to touch, this is produceing metal flake that attached to the magnetic sensor on the abs sending a light on because it couldn't read the tire position as it turned, it may have got blown off, washed off, but when it can read the tire again the light will go off, i would look into the grinding noise on cornering thats the cause of the problem. hope this helps
