ABS Light on ED.

ive just bought an ED Ghia and the Check ABS light comes on after about 30 seconds of driving. when you first start it the light goes off, but when you start to drive it, it comes back on and stays on. ive checked the wheel sensors and cleaned them but it still comes up. any ideas as to what it could be?

Re: ABS Light on ED.

must be a dud sensor or faulty ECU. Might need a trip to Ford to diagnose properly

Re: ABS Light on ED.

You could have a bent axle, thats what it sounds like anyway, it wont have to bent much only a couple of mm and it will put the sensor out.

but i need it to pass a roadworthy. will pull out the globe and see if he notices it dosnt come on, on start up. this guy doesnt test drive them so it should be alright. i still want to know what it is though. dont think the axle would be bent, and old lady drove it round. that would explain the few dints here and there.

Re: ABS Light on ED.

Why to pass roadworthy?
they dont test your ABS.

thats what came up in the diagnostic test on mine. we cleared the memory, and did it again and it came up but then did it a few more times then it didnt. also kept coming up with code 10 (seperator code) but it doesnt say what it is or what to change in the Ford Workshop manual. the guy reckons its the ECU which has fried it self which is apperently common on EB/ED.
