Customer Question
I HAVE A FORD...

I HAVE A FORD RANGER 05, 4CYL. AT 60 MILES AN HOUR THE ASB LIGHT COME ON. AT TIME THE BRAKE LIGHT WILL COME ON THE THE ABS LIGHT

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

YES AT TIMES, BUT ON EVERY TIME

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ranger yourself? What have you tried so far?

NO, A MECHANIC SAID HE THOUGHT THE SPEED SENSOR IN THE REAR END WAS THE PROBLEM; HOWEVER IT IS NOT, STILL DOING SAME

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS, I will never offer nor ask you to pay more for a call, calls and memberships are pushed by the website..
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box in the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

Have you had a scan tool connected to see which codes are stored? Since it only comes on while driving, it will be related to one of the speed sensor readings getting back to the ABS module. A tone ring damaged, wheel bearing bad, wiring concern, sensor failure. Any of these can cause this. The code will tell us where to begin looking.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

What Customers are Saying:

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.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
