ABS trouble on 2001 v6 mustangplease help...
OK. So heres whats going on.
My ABS system keeps tripping off.
It started speratically about 6 months ago on my way back from work.
I noticed an ABS warning on the dash and my traction control was set to
off. I couldn't turn it back on so I pulled into a parking lot turned
off the car, restarted the engine and did a burnout, the ABS system
reactivated for the drive home, bout 45 minutes.
About a week later it happened again. Same thing, I did a burnout and
it reinitialized itself. This went on for a period of time put
progressivly more frequent. Until now it seems when its dry out it
doesnt work at all.
Heres the funny part and I think it may be a clue, when it rains out,
the entire system reactivates, my traction control works,the ABS dash
light goes off and stays off and I can turn my traction control on and
off with the console button.
Then when it ges dry again, it stops working.
to me it seems as though there is a complete circuit being created with
the moisture somewhere that isn't there when dry....may seem crazy but
its a hell of a coincidence that the abs/t.c works in weather....Its
not a matter or wheel spin, i don't think anyways.....ive been told
that the magnet picks up the spin during a tire burnout and so the
sensor activates but I honestly don't think that's the issue,because im
not burning out in the rain, but i'm no mechanic so i am very open to
any suggestions , i don't wanna take it to a shop if I can fix it
myself.....Thansk for all yor input everyone
