SOURCE: after replacing the left front wheel bearing on a 2003 ford focus, the abs and traction warning light stay on

The bearings on the wheels has to be installed one way only, the rotor ring is built into the bearing and if installed the wrong way round the sensor cant pick up the wheel speed causing the ligt to be switched on in the cluster. The diagnostic equipment should pick this up as a fault once the car has been driven, it will see the sensor when you do the diagnostic if the car is standing still but once the car is moving and no signal is send from that wheel it would register a fault into the memory of the PCM that you would be able to retrieve later.
There is a way for you to test the sensor yourself by using a multimeter set on volts, you jack the vehicle up at that wheel, install a vehicle stand to support the vehicle to be safe, disconect the wheel speed sensor and probe the two wires into the sensor, spin the wheel by hand and a small amount of current will be produced meaning the the sensor is working and the wheel bearing is installed the correct way, you can also do a continuaty test on the sensor by switching the multimeter onto ohms, but be very carefull, if this sensor has three wires you cant do the continuaty test because of the integrated circuit in the sensor, the three wire sensors opperate on a voltage from 5Volt and it would be destroyed by the multimeter opperating on 9Volt.
If the continuaty test passes and the bearing is installed the correct way, the most comon fault would be a break in the wiring leading to the PCM
Hope this will be helpfull.

SOURCE: Engine light and ABS traction control light remain

The ABS sensor is a speed sensor also for Traction Control. This is why both lights are on , One of your front ABS sensors are bad or disconnected, or has a pinched wire.

ABS and TC light on. Speedometer and odometer are not working


If the speedo and odometer are not working it could be the speed sensor in the transmission. And the speed sensor could also knock out the ABS and traction control systems.
Have you had the body computer scanned for trouble codes ?

Re;- 2.5 Ford Cougar (2000) ABS and Traction Control warning lights stay on when driving normally.Presume its a fuse gone .Have checked aux fuse board in engine compartment and 60 amp fuse is ok . Can't...


Assuming you have right hand drive cougar, you can access the fuse box right under the glove box under dash. Use a torch and you will find a small pull down clip and when you pul it down it drops the whole fuse box. This is a common problem with Cougars. To my knowledge fuse is not the culprit, however its good to check. Most of the issues are related to ABS module. It is placed in the engine bay where it exposed to heavy vibrations (poor design) and some times the module will crack and sometimes it just electronic issue. Get the car scanned for fault codes and that will tell you what is the exact issue. If it turns out to be the ABS module you can get the module repaired if its not cracked or broken or buy a second hand one from wreckers if you can find one under $100 or $150. New one will cost a fortune. Let me know how you go, I can further assist in getting the module repaired, etc. FYI there is no need to remove or replace ABS unit if the ABS module is faulty. You dont need to touch it at all, just take out the ABS module (ECU).

My tc and abs light are coming on all the


Speedo and traction control; check wheel sensors all 4, clean and blow the sensors and reactor rings.
Is ABS light on as well? if so, you need a EBTCM module mounted to the brake ABS pump facing the battery. There are places in the US that rebuild them with warranty for under $150.

Traction control light and abs light came on at the same time and stayed on, on my 2001 ford focus please help!


most likely a wheel sensor concern

if the computer cannot see the wheel speed then you lose ABS and TRACTION control

go to almost any part store and have them pull codes
assuming you have a VSS code, replace the suspected part or continue diagnoses for possible wiring concern

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.


If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

Cruise control does not engage


Is the speedo working, TC ABS light on? You need the EBCTM...electronic brake control traction module replaced.

If not, check the fuses for the cruise cct.

Abs and traction contol light up


I'd have the brake accumulator checked. Try this. From a cold start, e.g., an overnight stop, release the handbrake (as it also operates the dash berake light), start the engine, and time how long it takes for the brake light on the instrument panel to go out. If it's up near 45 seconds, your accumulator is probably on the way out. They do fail after some years.

Sounds like a control module problem, I would be getting it diagnosed at least at the dealer they have the latest equipment and ask them first how much to diagnose. A lot of control modules need to be programmed when fitted so don't waste your time with a local guy who won't have the correct equipment.
