Without a bleeder pump it is hard to do but you can do it by disconnecting the lines one at a time on the side going to the wheels, start the car have someone press on the brake and crack the line open do this till the air is out of the first line then go to next line and do all four lines, once you have done this then you will have to bleed the wheel cylinders starting from right rear or passenger side rear wheel the driver side wheel then passenger front side then driver side front, you will need engine running to power bleed the system, just stepping on the brake pedal without it running won't work, be sure not to let it run out of fluid as your bleeding the system or you could damage the abs system or the brake master cylinder.

Bleading brakes on 2001 ford Taurus no traction lock. ABS pump has been changed can not get the air out and left front caliper will not pass fluid


You need a special tool to hold the ABS hydraulic control valves open during the bleeding procedure. So a well equipped shop needs to do this as the tool is very expensive.

1996 ford explorer+abs light on+no scan codes


Check fluid level in master cylinder first.

Then check the connector on the differential. Leads/connections may be corroded. Follow the wiring harness in the frame channel for abrasions of the wiring harness up to the ABS solenoid. If you have a towing package with the larger "Bergman" plug instead of a 4 flat, check the wiring connections for the controller, and check to make sure the other connections have not broken.

The ABS codes may only show up in real time. Nothing is stored except total failure of ABS solenoid.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on


The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

Are the brakes ABS all around? 8 cylcinder two wheel drive. Does anyone know?


IT DEPENDS ON THE OPTIONS THAT CAME WITH THE VEHICLE. IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT IF THEY ALL HAVE ABS THEN LOOK ON THE BACK OF EACH WHEEL FOR A WIRE THAT GOES TO THE CENTER OF THE HUB SOMEWHERE. THAT WIRE GOES TO A RELUCTOR WHEEL THAT MEASURES VEHICLE SPEED AT EACH WHEEL. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

ABS Light / Sensor on 1996 Ford Explorer


the rear one is a single sensor and is located in the top of the rear differential , unplug it and take the retaining bolt out and it pops straight up out of the differential. the front has 1 for each wheel,and is located on the backside of the wheel hub. take the tire off and look on back side of hub it should be the only sensor thare and is anchored with one bolt then just fallow the wire to its disconnect point. this vehicle is known to have problems with the rear sensor so i would replace it first and see if this fixes the problem

abs pump!!! did you pump the breaks when you were bleeding them? as a rule with abs you just apply the brake and D pump will supply enough pressure to bleed they recommend you do not pump!! them standard brakes yes you must pump to bleed.
