Ford uses a sensor for brake fluid, to test disconnect from Master Cylinder and connect the leads together. If light goes out, replace the sensor.

I have a ford f-150 1993 just got new brake pads routers and drums and now my abs light is on and my breaks lock up in the rear and put strain on my engine almost over heated once


I would suspect either the brakes were not installed coorectly, or you have a bad caliper or wheel cylinder. Also, if you do not have good brake pedal height (sinks to the floor or goes down far) it may be air in brake system indicating they need bled properly.

2006 Ford E350 disk brakes front and rear all new just installed now directly after the abs lite stays on however brakes work fine don't know about abs system though do you think I could have confused the...


Using the C-Clamp is the proper way to retract the pistons. So it wasn`t your fault for the aABS light.
check the brake fluid level, check the wheel speed sensors connection on all 4 wheels,
Drive vehicle for a few miles too see if the ABS resets itself.
If the light is still on, then have the truck checked with a SCANNER for the ABS problem..

My 1998 ford windstar abs brake light is on. In the past I had to add brake fluid and in doing so the light went out. I tried that but it continues to burn. Can it be reset?


thats odd. Adding brake fluid shouldn't have kicked on the ABS light..

Low brake fluid would cause your RED parking brake light to come on not the orange ABS light (unless thats what you mean. if thats the case its normal for that light to come on with low fluid. in this case check the brake lines starting to the master cylinder and the components at the wheels to make sure there is no leaks if you go HERE complained about your situation and also noticed a leak on the bottom of the master cylinder (hazardous in more than 1 way) )

not sure of the component locations under the hood of the windstar but check to see if you were bumping wires on the ABS control module when you were putting brake fluid in. may be a loose connection that jiggles loose when you drive.

otherwise it might need a new ABS control module or maybe moisture in one of the components.
