    You need to replace the "tone ring" on one or more of your wheels. The part is $7-$9 at Rock Auto (google that). No recalls, but it's a common problem. Search this site or Google for "Ford tone ring" and you'll get a lot of results.

    Good luck!

WHY DOES MY ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON?


brake and abs light check brake fluid level. The round float in the master cylinder directly controls the 2 dash lights.
The light is NOT directly controlled by the master cylinder float. The light is controlled by the ABS Module, which location depends on your vehicle. There are a number of different reasons the lights come on. If it comes on but shuts back off within seconds, don't worry about it, that occasionally happens when it gets a bad signal ("nonlatching error"). In rear-wheel-drive (RWD) vehicles, it is common for the differential speed sensor in the rear differential to go bad. You can pick up a Haynes manual to find if you can do at-home diagnostics (Temporarily grounding out the diagnostic lead will cause the ABS light to flash out a pattern indicating the error)


Check the Brake Pressure switch ( also known as SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH ) which is located below the Brake fluid master cylinder for leakage. The leakage can cause both lights to stay on and also cruise control control not working

2005 Ford Escape - have awd. When i encounter bad roads, the 4wd light flashes. It resets it self when i shut off the ignition; however my abs light has never come on and their were no error codes o


Usually it means there is a component of the system that is not working. It could be a sensor or mechanical problem.
You'll probably need to take it to a dealer or major shop to get it tested.

The issue started with the radio cutting in and out or switching discs then progressed to the lights on the dash and driver area start flashing or stay on and the in dash display computer basically freaks...


Your problem sounds like varying voltage to me, like the voltage regulation is not functional. Have you had the alternator tested to make sure that the voltage/amperage is regulated at a constant level?

My ABS light stays on and the 4wd light keeps blinking.


The first thing you need to do is to have the abs computer scanned for codes, the abs may be related to the 4wd problem, by scanning the codes this will give you an idea of the problem, for example they scan it and it reads p1542 rt frt sensor out of spec, this would mean theres a problem with the right front speed sensor, when ever the computer sees a problem it stores a code and turns on the light for whatr ever system fails, hope this helps.

1998 Honda Passport 4wd won't engage, ABS light on.


The ABS and the AWD are interconnected, if the sensor cable is damaged then there is no signal for the AWD sytem to operate from.
Also the ABS,,it wont work properly either,,,the repair is not costly, get it fixed.
