Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Am I able to drive the vehicle and if so - have far can I drive this vehicle ?
What happened before the light came on? Did you have any events like snow or ice, accidental slide offs? Dead battery?

Testimonial: "Good morning Brad - Thanks for replying back I had no events before this occurred Just driving about 45 MPH on a normal road and everything lit up I am able to drive in this condition and how far I am able to drive with this going on ?"
Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

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.

The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

Disconnect the multi plug behind the left headlamp and also all plug connectors on abs sensors behind discs and spray with wd 40, Shazoom all lights go and problem solved.

All three systems rely on some of the same sensors in order to operate.
In this case most likely is wheel speed sensors. By far the most common problem.
The system will need to be scanned to find out which is the offending one and be repaired.
Not all scan tools have the capability to read ABS systems. Make sure whoever you take it to has this available. Most good shops will have this.
If you have further questions on this, please ask me here, be glad to help.
