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.
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.
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.
