I have a 1999 f-150 and i just started up my truck and now my ABS dash light comes on once i start to move foward and it stays on.
Any ideas on what is up with this silly light??
Ill help you and it will only cost you about $20 and 5 minutes to fix. On the rear axle behind the pumpkin there is a sensor. Those for some reason go bad and cause your abs dash light to go one. If you put a ob2 ready on your truck you will not get a code for it. Read post 29 on this thread.ABS Light
If the rear ABS sensor is bad, it will light the ABS light BEFORE the vehicle moves. If the light comes on at 12 MPH on the first drive-off after start-up, it means the system failed its dynamic self-test. If it comes on intermittently and without pattern, it might be any one of a number of things.
Get the code read. A cheap OBDII scanner will not do the job. See the referenced thread in the previous post, it has more information in it.
If your original owner's manual is missing, download a soft copy from www.fleet.ford.com under the PARTS AND SERVICE tab.
