Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Without diagnostic trouble codes my best guess would be the speed sensor on the transmission is in some way at fault, disconnected or wire broken. The inability to detect output speed on the transmission would prevent, in turn, the ABS from functioning. The ABS module needs to accurately compare speed sensor inputs from transmission and wheel hubs.

depending on which trans it is there is a small dipstick on the trans at the front on the bottom these transmissions take a specific fluid so be careful

I had a 2002 model 1.4 Fiesta, same problem Engine management light or
ECA, electronic accelaration Control (EAC), it needs a ford dealer to do
a computer diagnostic, most likely that it will need replaced.
Mt friend who is a mechanic for ford said that it was a common factory fault and is very common in 1.4 zetec /duratec petrol models.
I now have a 2007 Fusion and was quick to see if this problem had been sorted on this model, and it has!!
Hope this helps!!

It indicates that something is bad with your ABS subsystem.
First, did you have a wheel bearing, brakes, shocks .... replaced recently on your vehicule. If yes, maybe the wiring of one of the ABS wheel sensor has been diconnected and not reconnected, or damaged during the repair. Anyway, you should check first the ABS sensor wiring and connectors condition at each of your wheels. Make sure the connections are good.
If the problem is not found at this step, it will require a more in depth investigation by your dealer or a specialized shop.
Don't be afraid, in all the cases your basic vehicule brake system will stay fully operational. However, the added functionnalities brought by your ABS subsystem can be affected or desactivated until the problem is fixed.
If it's generating unusual noise or unusual driving feeling or unstability when breaking you can remove the ABS fuse and it will desactivate entirely The ABS subsystem.
Just take additional care driving on wet or iced road.
Hope it will help
