Question about 2005 Ford F 250 Super Duty
Hello, I have an 05 F250 and an 05 Excursion the ABS lights recently came on in both vehicles. I've read that it's probably the VSS in the rear differential. If I replace that myself, will the abs indicator go off automatically?
Some additional information, we used to drive both vehicles all of the time. Back in November 07 we bought a commuter car so our big trucks sit around more than they ever have. I assume moisture got into the VSS and that's what caused the problem. Thanks in advance for any information.
No... will not reset by itself u will need a abs scan tool to reset it, so if u have a scan tool u can use it to tell u which brake disc abs wheel sensor needs to be CLEANED yes cleaned by letting it sit sensor disk rusted up... clean the rust off disc then use wd40 on it...

SOURCE: abs light on
I'm a Ford service adviser. There are many reasons for the
abs warning indicator to come on. The usual cause is from a
faulty speed sensor. Either a wheel speed sensor or the
differential speed sensor. I don't think the light is related to your vandalism. You might want to take the truck to an auto parts store and have them read the codes for you. Most auto parts stores will do this for free.

check the abs rings on the axles they have a tendency to crack and will set a light. does the vehicle have remote start? Is it an aftermarket system?

It sounds like you might be having a problem with your Electronic control module. Are the only codes coming up just for the sensor? Have you recently cleaned your engine or driven in very wet weather? If so, water could have gotten into your connections at the modules and causing odd codes. I hope this helps. Jay
