Customer Question
Sometimes the ABS light...

Sometimes the ABS light comes on.

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

Both. Ford scanned and rear ABS sensor was problem. $80 dollars later. Nope. Or do I have to have them clear the code?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '80 Ford?

2005 F150

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Please hang on a minute, checking with son

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Amber ABS light stays on. Red brake light sometimes on. Code reported rear ABS sensor. Replaced sensor above rear differential. No fix.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Mechanic did not give me code number, said rear ABS sensor was bad. Replaced sensor above differential? $80 dollars and lights are still on. Was this even the right sensor?

that's the rear abs sensor yes, but I still need to know the code. there is more to troubleshooting a problem than replacing parts.

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.

MollyUSA

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.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
