    when a abs sensor goes bad it effects the 4x4 and the overdrive also because it thinks 1 tire is spinning faster then the other which kicks in the 4x4 have the sensors checked at a auto part store so you replace the right one usually easier and most times cheaper to replace the whole hub it comes with a sensor

I just had the same exact problem. The ABS light was on constanly, and the 4x4 high light flashes about 8 times, turns off for about 2-5 minutes, then flashes again for another 8 times and keeps repeating. In addition, I was also hearing and feeling a grinding and clunking noise going in reverse, and the steering wheel was difficult to turn. I changed a bad hub assembly on the front driver side and everything went away...fixed! I wouldn't let anybody tell me that the ABS system and the 4x4 system are not linked together. In fact, my local Ford service department assured me that I had two separate issues. Well, I only had one issue and it was a bad ABS sensor. I hope my exprience helps you.

This means that you need to service your 4x4 and abs systems, you also may have some faulty sensors

ABS light is on and 4x4 high flashing. Noise when making a sharp turn


Sounds like you have a brake problem or a bad wheel bearing. If it makes a noise should get it checked out. My ABS light came on and I had to replace my rear wheel bearing as it made a noise also . Your ABS light is lit by a sensor in the wheels.telling you something is wrong.

2004 ford explorer abs light constant and 4x4 blinking any ideas?


According to the manual pg 10. http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/04expog3e.pdf
Anti-lock brake system: If the ABS light stays illuminated or
continues to flash, a malfunction has been detected, have the system
serviced immediately. Normal braking is still functional unless the brake warning light also is illuminated.

My ford explorer 2004 makes a loud banging noise while turning and the 4X4 high light flashes on and off as well as ABS light stays on


One loud bang is usually a ball joint. Jack up one side of car and shake tire to see what is loose. Shake each steering component while the side is lifted. Do both sides of car.

Hello my abs light is on constantly and the 4x4 high light flashes can you tell me how to fix


For your car when the ABS light comes on the 4x4 light is triggered as well. Run a scan on the car to be sure. However a broken or cracked tone/impulse ring can cause this. Have them checked. Even if you replace parts, a scan tool will be needed to clear the MILs ( malfunction indicator lights)

2004 explorer goes into engine failsafe mode when it shifts from 1st to 2nd. Engine still seems to idle ok, shift fine and run good but has reduced power. Tool light, abs light and service engine light...


No way to guess at this symptom,too many possible causes.You will need to have the diagnostic codes retrieved from the computer by a repair shop or a parts store.When I have that information I would be happy to make a recomendation as to a repair.Thanks!

The ABS light came on (stayed on) and the 4X4 HIGH light flashes. There is also a noticable grinding/rubbing noise coming from the front wheel-well when I'm making a sharp turn, going out of a tight space...


Here is my question

The ABS Light is on. For how long,and why are you here,v.s. having it checked out and repaired.
The grinding/etc,would have me putting the vehicle up on stands immediately, and checking it out. I would in no way drive it,like that

Sounds as though your wheel bearing,tone ring,abs sensor etc ,are being chewed up, and causing the code to set

4x4 high flashes, abs light on constantly, check engine light on and gringing noise


Sounds like your toe ring on one of the front axles has separated and needs replacement. Its a $30.00 part and about 1 hour labor.

ABS light on blinking 4x4 high ligh griding noise wheel well


your front hubs are probably going out thats the noise you are hearing and thats why your 4x4 lights probably on and that being said your abs sensors are part of that hub assembly so the sensors are probably full of metal, they are a magnetic sensor just jack the front of your vehicle up and spin the tire by hand and you will find the bad one the drivers side usually goes first, but my as well do both at the same time
