    My brake light came on and stayed on. Problem was my brake fluid was low. Filled up and the light went out. Also make sure the brake pedal is not sticking. Pull it up with your hand to check.

Check the emergency brake pedal and the brake pedal, just to be sure.

Replaced brakes on 1995 Ford Taurus and now ABS light is on and ABS is disabled


The ABS light only comes on because of a fault. You need the ABS control module scanned for the code that set when the light comes on. There is no RESET

Why is my ABS light on in my 1999 ford taurus?


The abs computer has sensed a problem, most likely is a bad wheel speed sensor or brake dust is stuck to sensor.Disconnect battery(-) and press brake pedal 5 times then reconnect if you still have light on then have the system scanned at a repair facility.

The ABS light came on the car stop for a minute after a while I cut the car back on and it started. what is a ABS and where is it located on a ford taurus 1996 car.


The "ABS" or Anti-lock Brake System is exactly that. When the brake pedal is pressed in a harsh or panic manner the "ABS" senses the tires locking up or skidding. It releases just enough brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate thereby giving control back to the driver. It allows the shortest stopping distance. The "ABS" control module will be located next to the Brake Master Cykinder in the engine compartment and attached by steel brake lines. If the "ABS" light is coming on then the system is malfunctioning and should be checked as soon as possiable.

Does the 1999 Ford Taurus have anti-lock brakes?


It may or may not have abs. Generally an easy way to tell is when u first turn the key on all the dash lights should come on. If you see an abs light for a few seconds you will know it has abs.

your abs system runs off the speed sensors. but if you have a bad one your abs light should have come on. you may have to have your abs system bled. this is best done with a computer

Sounds like a dry caliper(if disc brakes) or dry wheel cylinder (if drum). Some times a good cleaning goes a long way but may take some disassembling to do it.

Does your speedometer work ok? There is a sensor on top of your rear differential that provides a signal to both the abs and the computer(speedometer uses the signal from the computer) This sensor goes out pretty common.
