    I have a 2.5 sport x type and the abs light came on, then 100 miles down the road the engine management light has come on so it must be a electrical problem. well i hope anyway??

    Same problem (check engine light or abs light - or both) comes on. Eventually it goes off. Doesn't seem to have any effect . . .

I have the same car, same problem and I've been doing some research. It seems to be that the most common problem is a faulty ABS sensor that causes the car to go into "Limp Home Mode". Limp Home Mode is automatically initialized when the car senses that it has some sort of electrical or mechanical issue. This is most likely what your experiencing, because I, and many other X-type owners are as well. Good Luck.

If you are absolutely sure that the all the abs sensors are good. Then the only other factors are the abs unit itself and the abs computer. Please have the system checked with a a scanner to make sure. Remember the only way to an ABS light will reset is by driving the vehicle and if every component of the system is fine the light will go out. Because your light is on there is a problem in the system and your abs is not functioning when the light is ON .Good Luck

SOURCE: ABS and brake on 2001 Ford Windstar come on randomly

Do you mean the van is actually braking like a Starsky and Hutch move or that the warning lights indicate that they are on? If its lights then you may be low on brake fluid. Maybe a module leak

SOURCE: abs light/traction control light

You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.

SOURCE: Ford Focus ... ABS light came on and car slowly shut down

Today while driving my 2007 Ford Focus SE The day was getting warm so I turned on the A/C everything was working OK for about two or three Minutes then the ABS caution light came on and then we could start smelling something getting hot so I turned the A/C Off and by doing so the Caution Light went off and the smell went away. I got my car checked by a Mechanic he took a reading for trouble codes and told me all was normal but he wasn't equip for shorts and suspected it could be behind the dash, figured everything would be ok as long as we didn't use the A/C. So the family took the car to the store only to give me a call that now they weren't able to start the car. The battery seem to be in good shape with plenty of power but it didn't seem it was getting it to the starter in fact it took a jump in order to start the car at the store. now that I've got it home, the car starts fine but I Still Get An ABS caution light when I put the A/C on And that smell comes back.

ABS and Brake warning lights intermittent may be caused by a failing wheel speed sensor(ABS Sensor) and /or its connector. You may have one on each wheel hub(4WD) or if 2WD, a sensor may be on the rear axle differential center.

My Car shut off, I found out it was the


ABS is Advanced Brake Systems, but that light should flash once when the car is turned on to signal it works.
If you turn the key in the ignition forward, like you are going to turn it on, but not far enough to turn the engine over, that light should be on at a constant. with it turning itself off upon starting.
If you have a no start issue, it would have the same effect. But if it is a no start, it's not going to be a dead battery, the battery puts out enough charge to turn the engine over (on), and the alternator runs everything.
Alternators run off the belt(s) on the engine and need exact tension, in order to produce the proper amount of power.

You may want to check with factory recalls. There was a letter sent to 2007 owners about a computer upgrade to solve loss of sudden power along with some ABS issues.

All warning lights blink off and on


Try checking all of the ground wire connections. There are a few located on the firewall. I had a crankshaft code coming on and it was the ground that was corroded. Engine performed the same way, dash lights on and off and ABS light coming on and off. The grounds corrected this.
