To change the abs sensor on this vehicle you will have to replace a front wheel bearing if that is where the abs is acting up if not then you will need to have a scan tool to find out which sensor is acting up

On my 2007 explorer the brake engage when you put the car in drive and the rcs light comes on

Do you mean the RSC light ?
  • Roll stability control (RSC)/interactive vehicle dynamics (IVD)
  • Roll Stability Control (RSC)
    The roll stability control (RSC) system monitors the roll-rate sensor and existing stability assist sensors and calculates if the vehicle may be approaching a situation where rollover is probable. If such a situation exists, the RSC system applies preemptive action. When activated, the RSC system adjusts the brake torque at specific wheels in response to direct measurement of the vehicle roll motion. By adjusting brake torque, the system can reduce the cornering forces and, therefore, the total roll moment acting on the vehicle. Systems with RSC have an additional roll-rate sensor located within the sensor cluster and additional programming within the ABS module to help control the vehicle during sudden maneuvers.
    Information from the roll-rate sensor is fed into the ABS module. The computer uses information from the ABS wheel speed sensors, the throttle position sensor, the steering wheel angle, the steering wheel rate of change and a yaw rate sensor that measures the change in vehicle direction. If the computer determines from all these inputs that conditions exist for a potential roll over, the system applies one or more brakes and reduces engine torque to make the vehicle more stable.
    If the event is severe and the driver's foot is not on the brake, the brake pedal moves to apply higher brake forces. A whooshing sound can also be heard from under the instrument panel in an event this severe .
    I strongly suggest you have this vehicle towed to a ASE certified repair shop that knows this system !

    Why are the ABS and AWD lights remaining on after start up? I am also feeling a slipping or vibrating when applying brakes hard or on a steep hill.

    the feeling from the brakes will be the ABS in operation. Run the fault codes to check ABS system for problems. have the brake system /pads and rotors checked for serviceability.

    When applying brakes on 99 Ford Explorer they feel good until just berfore stopping then it feels like a push back on pedal and a bit of chatter like the ABS is coming on. Doesn't feel right. No Problem...

    I had the same problem with my 2002 Silverado. The grease seal on the right front wheel bearing went up letting grease build up on sensor . Disconnect ABS sensor wire at wheel one wheel at a time. Abs light on dash will come on but that's ok. drive and stop easy with wire disconnected until brakes feel normal. Then you will know wheel is the problem.

    I have a 3.4 Chevy impala and my engine light is on my mechanic say is the oxygen sensor and the auto part say is the abs speed sensor who i belive?

    Several systems are monitored. Service engine light has nothing to do with brakes. ABS or traction light will have to do with brakes. Each system has a separate module to monitor the components. Both could be right.

    My abs light comes on occasionally. everything seems fine, then some times I can't stop as well as I should. It seems that the abs is kicking in & it makes ticking noises in brake pedal area. It also...

    There's a service bulliten about that problem with rust build-up on the front hubs pushing the sensors out of posistion [ most common on the pickups in areas that use road salt ], it happens mostly at very low speed. The best way to find out the problem is to have the system scanned.

    1996 jeep grand cherokee the abs light came on but the brakes are fine what would be the fix and what is the ABS light what does it mean

    Your ABS system (automatic braking system) is designed to cause a rapid pulsing of the brakes when fully applied to prevent skidding by releasing a locked wheel and then re-applying pressure many times a second. It can be diagnosed using a scanner. The light being on tells you there is a fault in that system.
    The reason that the brakes feel fine is that when the abs has a fault, it reverts back to a "standard" braking system. While it is perfectly safe to drive it that way, in many states it will not pass inspection with the light on. The abs system does offer a bit more of a stopping margin than a regular brake but if you have driven for a long time with "normal" brakes, it can sometimes be difficult to adjust to how abs works. I personally am more comfortable without ABS but do recognize its value especially to a new driver.
    Have it scanned and you likely will be able to locate the problem!!

    sounds like you are getting a false ABS activation. Check the axles at the outer cv joints to see if the sensor rings for the ABS are cracked. A common problem.
