My 1999 Ford Explorer ABS dash light came on & the front driver''s side makes a grinding sound & vibrates when I apply the brakes. HELP!

Hello,

Most likely the brake pads have worn down so low that it is now metal on metal and some of the metal shavings have covered the ABS sensor at the wheel. It will need to be taken apart and have the brakes repaired and clean the sensor,,,hopefully you wont have to replace the sensor, but thats always a possibility.
