Re: crown vic abs issues

Usually where we had that problem, it was a wheel speed sensor. In most cases, it was one of the sensors that coated with brake particles, or a front one that was hit by something from the road and was bent. Look at both front very closely and see if they are straight. Also, check them all for particles if that isn't it.

Did you get this resolved? I have the same year car and same problems. ABS sometimes engages on dry pavement, coming up on stoplights. Not fun feeling that ABS as you creep up on someones bumper on a hill. ABS light is on CONSTANTLY. Took the car to a shop and they cleaned some sensors or something but never solved the issue. What part in the Haynes manual should I be looking to inspect?

Re: crown vic abs issues

Most of the issues with the ABS engaging to quickly, is a fault in one of the speed sensors. The Ohm reading on them should be between 800 and 1400 Ohms. You could also connect a volt meter to the 2 pins and see if you get a volt reading when you turn the wheel. Not foolproof, but may help.
