    CORRECTION: The ABS control module on my daughter's 2000 Ford Taurus is not communicating with any of the 4 wheel sensors. Is there anyplace online to purchase a new ABS control module for this car?

Ford and GM often permanently "marry" the electronic and hydraulic portions of the module making rebuild more difficult as the 2 halves require a different procedures and skillsets to repair (1 is a computer board with chips and circuits, 1 is a hydraulic pump and mechanical valve assembly with some solenoids). You can try BBA-REMAN.COM, they may be able to rebuild it for you, but the majority of rebuilders out there prefer to stick with electronic only rebuilds (Typically european cars all use bosch style seperateable units available as exchange at many rebuilder shops). You may end up with faster luck trying to locate a used unit at a local junkyard that offers say a 30 day guarantee.

Have you verified that the wheel signals are in fact present and are reaching the module? Wheel speed is calculated seperately for each wheel, and processed seperately. It is rare (though not unheard of) for a module to fail in a manner that disables all sensors at once. Typically a module that has lost ability to process a signal or is grounding a signal internally will affect only 1 or 2, and the others will continue to function normally. Also solder cracks on the board are not uncommon, though again that would be very rare to affect all 4 at once.

2004 ford taurus turn signals don't turn off when steering wheel turns straight again

There is a cam assembly inside the steering wheel. It is not too easy to get to and wears out too quickly.

How to change a rear wheel bearing on a 2004 ford taurus???

How to Replace Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly on a 2nd generation Taurus

The following procedure is for a Ford Taurus (VIN S), with rear drum brakes and ABS.

1. Loosen wheel lug nuts, raise rear of vehicle, and support securely on jack stands. Block front wheels and remove rear wheels.

2. Remove brake drum (parking brake must be off).

3. Remove and clean ABS Sensor (Torx E8) with a spritzled rag.

4. Remove grease cap from hub.

5. Remove and discard hub retaining nut (36 mm). This is a compound nut, comprised of several nuts inside a metal cage. Use a 36 mm axle nut socket (e.g., OEM 25206). Many auto parts stores will lend you this socket. A 1/2-inch drive air impact wrench or breaker bar is necessary to remove the nut.

6. Remove wheel bearing/hub assembly from spindle. It easily comes off by hand.

7. Install new Timken Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly, for Drum Brakes and ABS (Part No. 512162). Tighten new axle spindle nut (Dorman 05114) 221 lb.-ft., replace grease cap, and button everything up.
