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.
Good Luck

ABS and brake light will not go out sometimes when you start the truck. Then again you start it and all lights act properly.

hello tra.... these two issues are related. The ABS sensors often go bad as the vehicle ages. Once the lights start acting up the failure of the ABS is not generally far behind. The only bright light there is that the only function of ABS is the autopumping of the brakes. Once that goes, you still have brakes, you just have to manually pump them when on icy or wet roads.

The cost of replacing these ABS sensors, and ultimately the ABS system is generally cost prohibitive. Joe

2 weeks after I had brake pads replaced ABS and TC light came on and it was found that a sensor connection was loose. Drove fine for 2 weeks and light came on again. Serviced aging and a new sensor placed....

Good chance that the ABS sensor need to be adjusted to the speed ring on the hub. it's a common thing that happens when the brakes has been service and the technician did not measure the gap between the sensor and speed ring on the hub. Clean the speed ring on the hubs and measure the gap the the ABS sensor to the speed ring and double check the wire harness. inspect for any damages like corrosion. The gap should be 0.005 to 0.050 inch (0.127mm to 1.270mm), use a brass feeler gauge so it wont stick to the magnetic abs sensor. Good luck and hope this helps.

I have a 1998 pontiac transport and the ABS light just went on. The brakes feel perfectly fine. What is this light for?

It's possible it's the ABS brake sensor is faulty. The sensor attaches to the brake caliper. The only way to verify if the ABS is functioning is to test them in a skidding situation which is unsafe. Normal braking would not give any indication if the ABS is functioning. You shouldn't automatically assume they are functioning and should get the car checked out at a shop that features free checks. Best of luck.

I would take the car right back to the shop that cleared the code. There was a 50/50 chance of clearing the codes. The good thing is now the shop will be able to pin point the failure with the fresh code. Most of the time the abs controller is going out. The controller also might not be readiing the tire sensor . If one sensor goes out the abs light will come on. The controller could be working fine and one of the sensor has to be replace. That is the cheapest cost. The abs controller and abs hydraulic controller is big bucks to replace , The part is around 1500 bucks. The tire sensor are around 25.00 35.00 each.

The manufacture has made the vehicle to where if the abs system is not working correctly then the brake system will automatically work as normal brakes with out the abs system.

Yeah its a pain in the you know where to take back but I would fight tooth and nail with the shop not to charge you any additional check out time. If the shop stands behind there work they will not charge you additoinal check out time.

Good Luck

ABS Light

I would not ignore this problem. Some damage has been caused to your braking system, i doubt if is is as simple as resetting the abs sensor. You should have the wheels removed and the suspension and braking systems fully checked over either by yourself or a competent mechanic .as the grinding sound could be a symptom of a serious safety hazard.

Driving on a flat could have buckled the rim or damaged the discs, steering or suspension.
