ABS sensor problem on 2000 Expedition

I just replaced the lower ball joints and musy have twisted something in the ABS set up. I am not sure what is wrong yet and I am puting it on the scanner tonight to get the code to figure out where the problem is. I am sure with my luck, it needs a new hub. It appears the sensor is part of the wheel hub.

My questions is: I cant get the part for a few days cuz of shipping and none of the local parts shops have it either. I am driving this truck from Cleveland to Orlando and I need to leave this Thursday night. How dangerous is it to drive with the ABS light on, assuming it is a sensor? I have brakes and they seem to be fine, I assume the anti-lock may not work. Which is a concern driving in the mountains of WV.

Please advise....I will post agian after I do the diag test and let you know what the codes say.

Dave

Thumbs up

Hello to all you Ford addicts. I've been one for more years than I care to admit. Now I have an electrical problem and would like some help diagnosing it. I know there are hundreds of you smarter that I when it come to electrical problems, so I will appreciate your help. My ABS light started to lite up and stay on. Plus my speedometer has started to drop down to 0 when speed drops below 25MPH. I'm wondering if this is the SSV unit on the defirental causing the problem.

ABS Light Failure

Dave, My ABS light has been staying on for over a week. It would be my opinion the driving with the ABS light on doesn't have any dire problems unless you would get into a position (near Accident) and they would become a must. I drive my truck every day. There seems to be many different things that could cause the ABS to light up.

No effect with the ABS light on. Sounds like you may have broken the sensor wire. Let us know what you find.

Just get the part from the Ford Dealer. It's only $25. It isn't dangerous to drive with the sensor out as far as damage to your truck, but ABS is a safety feature.

Yes this shouldn't affect your normal brakes at all.. just keep in mind your ABS will not kick in should a wheel lock up on you during braking.
