The ABS light on may be do to a loose connection on either the right or left ABS sensor which is located on the inside rocker panel on each wheel..The sterio may have speed control like mine.....The faster you go the sterio will increase in volume and lower when going slower cause of road noise or sun roof...Hope this helps you out.

Brake light (in dash) intermittently comes on when I accelerate after a stop, then goes off.


Does the car have ABS? Sometimes the brake light indicates a problem with the ABS sensors.

I need to tighten the emergency brake cable,where is the place where the brake cable is tightened?


Hello, There are really two things to do. There is an equalizer adjustment in the rearward part of the cable to make both rear wheels operate evenly. Put on the Ebrake lightly and see if both rear brakes are applying even pressure. Adjust until they are balanced.

Then push down fully on the Ebrake lever until tight, then push down, repeat and the Ebrake reel under the dash will draw in the extra slack.

While driving my 1.6 focus the speedometer goes to zero and the radio volume goes low. Whats up?


I can give you most of your answer and it depends on the Radio. Ford has a speed-compensated Radio that will adjust the volume of the Radio to the speed of the car. This feature means you will not have to adjust a radio down at a stoplight or when going to a drive-thru.

Then when the car speeds up and engine and road noise increase, so does the volume on the Radio. So you will not have to adjust the volume of the Radio when you drive.

You need to fix the speedometer to get the radio to work correctly. You probably have a sensor connector or the sensor itself making the problem. Go to an Autoparts store and get a sensor and it will probably work fine.

Speedometer stopped working and mileage has dashes in display


Replace your speed sensor. Your speedometer is controlled by a sensor in the transmission, and when it goes it can cause irregular shift patterns, check engine light, abs light, ect. It's a simple fix, but the part is kind of expensive, generally between $75.00 and $100.00.

Check you speed sensor on the transmission, Overdrive wont work without speed sensor, nor will ABS, or Speedometer.. it all boils down to a speed sensor.

ABS PANAL LIGHT & EMERGENCY BREAK PANAL LIGHT ON.


your is mostlikly on because there are 4 sensors on each axle that read wheel speed, when one malfunctions it sends a signal to the ecm to throw that light, the brake light is probably due to the tention of your ebrake, if it engages right when you start pulling it up then the lever does not go high enough to let the plunger out of the sensor attatched to the ebrake lever, or that sensor could have gotten broken or stuck also, i would adjust your pedel down by the lever should see a sensor that can be unscrewed and backed up then retightend back down, or you may have to adjust your break. the abs should be able to be taken to a autopart store and they can hook it up to a codereader for free and let you know which one is malfunctioning or if it is the entire abs unit since there is a computer that goes to them all though the sensors are out to the elements and usually always mess up down the road from heat and watter, hope that answered all your q's, if it did throw me some blue take care gal

Speedometer not working


speedometer get speed signal from ABS. ABS and DSC are two functionality in same ECU. 
You shall read faults from ABS/DSC ECU.
Most frequently, there are problems with speed sensors on wheels.
With ignition on, you shall measure voltage on both wires (- pole of voltmeter shall be connected on vehicle ground). You will see one sensor without voltage supply. This will sensor with problem. you can, for check, change sensors on same axle (left and right). 
Switch ignition off, and on. 
If voltage supply missing will go on another side (with faulty sensor), you will be sure that is problem is sensor.
