I suggest scanned the ABS Module in order to know exactly what is trhe fault code stored there. Just with this code number could send other details.

Meaning of warning lights


Manufacturers spend billions of dollars a year refining their cars' on-board diagnostics systems. However, all of the sophisticated diagnostics in the world will do little good if you don't know what the warning lights mean.
Purpose
Modern automobiles have dozens of sensors to monitor engine, braking and chassis performance. Any deviation from the car's established limits will trigger a dashboard warning light.


Check Engine Light
Check engine lights can indicate failure of the emissions system, fuel injection system, faulty sensor feedback, overheating or lack of voltage, transmission failure, and engine knock ignition system failure.


Brake Lights
Almost all cars have two separate lights for the braking system: a red "ABS" (anti-lock braking system) light and "Brake Warning" light. The former indicates failure of the electronic anti-lock system, the latter a loss of fluid pressure in the brake system itself.


Dynamic Warnings
Many modern cars have traction or stability control systems that prevent and notify the driver of tire slippage. These lights can come in the form of amber "SLIP," "TC," or "TRACTION" lights (for spinning tires), or "ESC" (electronic stability control) lights for a sliding vehicle.


Safety Lights
Most cars have a diagrammatic warning that indicates a door that isn't all the way closed, a seat-belt warning light, and an "airbag disabled/enabled" light. Any or all of these will be red or amber.

What does it mean when 1999 Ford Explorer ABS warning light on dashboard comes on?


That means that the EBTCM has detected a problem within the system.The message indicates that a malfunction exists in the stability enhancement feature.

EBTCM (Electronic Brake and Traction Control Module) is an electronic control module that controls and operates the Anti-Lock brake system, Traction Control System and Stability system. If this module detects a problem, it "asks" the cluster to inform you by displaying a warning message.


You should have your car scanned for trouble codes with a scan tool, the Tech2 scan tool is preferred because other scan tools may not communicate with the EBTCM modules.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

Service stability warning light is on


Thay means that your Stability Control System is malfunctioning. Your vehicle may be equipped with Continuously Variable Road Sensing Suspension (CVRSS) this system controls the ride height (Air Springs) and the stiffness (electronic shocks) of your suspension. Your computer data must be collected and used to help determine the cause of the failure before any repair can begin.

Engine light continues to come on ever since I had car repairs done on 2005 S type 10/14/10 ie front brakes repaired, wheel alignment, oil shield was left down, second time engine light on, Emmission...


Hi Caes431,
It would not be enough just to have the codes cleared. Whatever caused the warning to come on the first time, must be attended to and rectified. As the warning is still coming on it means the reason has not yet been attended to.
The vibration as you've described it may be caused by the same problem, as it would seem to be coming from rough engine performance and could be related to the emission control.
The jolt you're experiencing would seem to be something to do with the brakes....I would suggest that further investigation is required with particular attention paid to the fitting of the calipers.

The service stability light is on


It pertains to just what it says STABILITY. Your vehicle has a system that will sense if you are coming around a curve at about 90 MPH. It will automatically apply a light amount of braking to the proper wheels, thus hopefully eliminating you and your Uplander from flying off curve. With the light on as with any warning light , you must assume whether its real or not, that the STABILITY system IS NOT operating. Significant computer / sensor diagnosis will be necessary. Hope this helps

Service Stability System keeps coming up on my display. It seems to do it right after starting my car and backing up or when coming to a stop sign. The other day I backed out of an area kind of quickly due...


I had the same problem...but I found out that the dealer had rotated incorrectly the tires.
Front and back are different sizes and if a rotation is performent front to rear, you may get a stability light warning.

I corrected my tires and the warning went a way.
