Your brakes need bleeding. And if you have antilock brakes, you should take it to a shop to bleed them. It takes special tools to bleed antilock brakes. If you have regular brakes you can bleed them yourself. Could go into further detail but would take too long to explain. Refer to a repair manual. Note: bleeding antilock brakes without first disconnecting the sensor will damage the sensor and the antilock function will no longer work (learned the hard way, unfortunately).

What does the ABS mean in your Ford truck?

ABS means either Antilock Braking System or Anti-Blockier System, depending on where you live. (What it does: if you stomp really hard on the brakes, it will rapidly apply and release the brakes for you, keeping you from skidding out of control and crashing.) If the ABS light is on in your Ford truck, that means the electronics that control the anti-lock part of your brakes are not working, and you need to take the truck to a mechanic.

Are antilock brakes are the same as conventional brakes?

The basic foundation brakes are the same but the anti-lock is an addition to the basic system.More: Anti-lock brakes have a sensor that will cause the brakes to pulsate when the brakes get near the point of locking up so you can still steer and move while braking.The system only kicks in during hard (emergency) braking.More: Anti-lock brakes can feel very uncomfortable when first experienced. The chattering and shaking can make you take your foot off the brake thinking something is wrong. To get over this I found an empty parking lot and compared stopping distances.I braked hard to use the anti-lock brakes and repeated the exercise until I felt confident that all that chattering improved my stopping distance.

Why are your tires slipping when you brake?

Mine aren't but if yours are there could be multiple reasons: 1. No or little tread on the tires 2. Wet street 3. Brakes applied hard on gravel or other low traction surface 4. The anti-lock brake system isn't working as it should. If this is the case you'd see the "Antilock" warning light on the dash. Under normal circumstances an emergency stop should cause the anti-lock system to take control, releasing brakes at individual wheels as it senses the wheel is about to lock up (skid the tire). If you suspect your brakes aren't working properly you should have them looked at by a qualified mechanic. Cheers
