You have to run the code and see what the problem is. they have a normal known problem thou on the abs to be a rabs sensor located at the top of your differential.
its not an expensive part. Use a 10mm, a 3/8, or a 13mm depending on the model and remove the sensor.
replace it and see if the light goes out. IF the code was a c1230 or c1229 this is probably the problem.
ABS stands for Automatic Braking System. The ABS light in a 1997 Ford Explorer will come on when this braking system is activated.
Get your Anti-Lock Braking system diagnosed and repaired by a qualified professional. Then the light will turn itself off.
Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem
Bring t a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem
have vehicle scanned with ABS scanner to determine the problem
means your abs (brakes) NEEDS REPAIR OR SERVICE
A malfunction has been detected - get it checked out
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
If you want to just disable the ABS then you can pull out the fuse for the ABS relay. The only thing is the ABS light will show on the dash.
the computer is detecting fault within the abs system. your brakes will still function, but without the benefit of abs
thank you for your answer. i was having trouble with the abs light coming on and staying
The ABS light refers to a malfunction of the Anti-lock Brake System. When the light is on, it means there is a problem somewhere in the ABS that is not allowing it to function. Your hydrolic brakes will work. or your cencer is old or broke
It most likely has an abs problem (a code stored). Go and have the system scanned if you want the reason.
Yes ( my 1995 Ford Explorer XLT 4x4 has 4 wheel ABS brakes )
What I did was find the correct fuse for for the ABS motor and remove the fuse . the abs light will stay on but this did it for me. or find the motor just in front of the master cylinder and unplug it.
the abs fuse is under the hood on driver side
anti - lock brake system
I have the same problem on my 1995 Ford Explorer . The ABS kicks in with slow stops on dry pavement . Until the ABS light comes on so a trouble code can be seen I don't know which sensor is causing the problem
what should i do for the Automatic Brake system (ABS) light to go off in a 1996 ford explore?
My 1995 Ford Explorer does that also , I had it checked out and the mechanic / technician figured I had an ABS sensor screwing up , but until the ABS light comes on there is no way of telling which ABS sensor is the problem
I suspect multiple problems. The blank or intermittent odometer problem is a common problem in the 2002 Ford Explorer. The ABS and airbag lights are most likely a different problem than the odometer problem. For complete information on the intermittent odometer problem, see http://www.odometer-repair.com .
Unhook your negative battery cable, turn your light switch on, then turn it off and reconnect the battery. That should reset the computer.
on My 1995 limited the fuse is red and it is #14 in the fuse panel if you remove the fuse the yellow abs light on your dash board will stay on .....
It comes on because the computer has detected a prolem with the ABS. Do not attempt to repair this yourself. Take it to a professional.
You have a problem with the ABS & SRS. Have this looked at by a professional. Neither systems are DIY repairs unless you know exactly what you are doing.
