A couple of days ago my ABS light was flickering and now its on all the time, could it be a faulty connector or broken wire ?

Hi

Exactly the same thing has happened to my focus... ABS & traction control lights flickered now staying on! i have also noticed that the fuse box is 'clicking' far too much and the ABS seems to engage under light braking. Dont know if you have had any of these symptoms? Taking it to the ford dealership tomorrow so will keep you posted.

hope this is of some help to you.

Maybe there is a sensor that is dirty - maybe a quick clean would help?

Could be a cracked reluctor ring on one of the hubs.

My money would be on a wheel sensor.

Just a quick update, I have unplugged each of the four sensors at rear of each wheel in turn and the light stays on.
Where do the wires run to ?

Anymore help will be appreciated
Thanks
Paul

Is there a way to check/test each wheel sensor ?

Many Thanks

I had intermittent ABS and Brake lights indicating for a number of months but the local dealer failed to find anything when checked. Finally I had them check when Brake light was on permanently and they found the instrument board was faulty (apparently there was a recall shortly after the car was built) and they replaced it under the warranty I had with them - car bought from them. From reading here I knew this was a possibility and that perhaps they were just stalling. The car is a 2004 LX and the cost would have been between £400 - £500.

Regards Stuart

Presumably they might have used an improved instrument board for your model so my problem might not have been the same. I had the ABS light on intermittently as well as the Brake light, sometimes both on.
