Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

Are the lights on immediate when started or must you move for them to come on?

Do you own a scan tool that can access the ABS module?

Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

The brake warning light comes low brake fluid, faulty brake fluid sensor, parking brake applied, faulty parking brake sensor, ABS issues. Brake fluid level issues associated with the brake light is the only way to turn on the ABS light. Any ABS concern can cause the brake light to come on. If you did not mess around the brake fluid reservoir and or got fluid on the ABS module or possibly damaged wiring there, THen we will need to know the codes to address this.

Please make sure to rate my answer prior to logging off, as this is how I get credit for helping you. If you have not yet received 5 star excellent service from me.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
