Abs light on in my ford ranger 1999


ABS light tells you that there is some problem with the brake system like you have forgot to release the emergency brake or its time for you to change the brake fluid. Ford recommends to change the brake fluid every year.If you have recently refilled the brake fluid , check for any leaks.Abs light indicates that your braking system needs to be serviced.

Abs light on


It's likeley that a wheel speed sensor is bad, but to really find out it will be necessary to utilize an OBD-II ABS Brake Scan Tool such one made by Actron which covers 1996 through about 2005 year models of most American makes and models.

This tool will tell you in English what is wrong with the ABS brake system, or at least point to symptoms which can lead to a solution.

I have a 1999 ford ranger 2 wheel drive automatic


Sometimes this works, ABS light on, check engine light on, speedometer not working, and the automatics start shifting hard or not shifting at all? One bolt and the part is cheap, its weird how one part controls so much.

I have a 1997 gmc jimmy. the abs unit locks up between 7mph and 5mph and the brakes stop working.


There was a recall on the ABS system on your truck. The problem was the ABS sensor on the front wheels were getting dirty and corroded causing a faults signal to the ABS module. The fix was to inspect the ABS sensor and clean them with brake parts cleaner and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring on the hub. The ABS sensor and speed ring is on the inside of the front wheel hub, spry brake parts cleaner and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring with paper folded 5 times. I feeler gauge will work but put a paper between the sensor and gauge cause the sensor is magnetic and the gauge will stick. Look for damages to the lead wire to the abs, but i think that's all fine since you did not mentioned any abs light on. You may be even lucky with just a good spray of the brake parts cleaner. Good luck and keep me posted.

"check Engine" will not turn off.


Take it to Autozone or other chain parts store, most of them will (for free) plug into your computer and get the code and tell you what it needs

ABS light won't turn off.


It could be that changing the switch told the ABS there was a fault. Try removing the fuse for the ABS and waiting 5 minutes for it to reset. ---I had a small ABS issue with my Volvo and the ABS fuse had blown. Good luck-- and if this helped can you give a rating?
