Are there OBD2 error codes that might help me find what is causing the light to light? Any other ideas suggesting where to start looking for the cause? I would not care that the light is on but here in Massachusetts, we have annual inspections and mine is due next month.
Foggy: Have you taken it to the local Auto Zone, or Advance Auto? They may be able to read a Code.
Or take it to the nearest Local Brake (I suggest a couple of them) shoppe, and have them give you a diagnostic check or estimate on this.
I have found that when the ABS light comes on in a Ford,,,,it has something to do with on of ABS sensor monitoring the the braking system itself.
Update: I found this on other Theard....Hello,
Wanted to ask if anyone has had to replace their ABS Module and done so with a refurbished one. I know from following the forums for a while that the ABS module on the Windstar has been a major problem due to heat warping the casing and circuit board.
I just had mine inspected due to lights coming on dash and pulled code 1185.
Local repair shop wanted $1200 to install, program, new module.
Found a local shop that sends in the unit to have the circuit board resodered and guarantees for the life of the unit for around $550.00
Curious if anyone else has gone this route to fix the ABS module issue?
Thanks for your feedback
