Question about 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty Super Cab

1 Answer

2000 F350 4X4 7.3L ABS light comes on and stays on, most of the time. It sometimes goes off, while driving. Sometimes while braking, ABS light will go off and right front brake grabs, along with the noise that abs makes when it makes adjustments like for braking on icy road. Following that stop, ABS will generally come back on while driving. Does the right front brake grab indicate that it may be the sensor that needs attention?

ABS sensors can be failure-prone, causing erratic ABS light operation.

    Thanks. I was hoping that the fact that the right front brake is the one that grabs, maybe that would indicate that IT was the one causing the problem. The sensor assmbly seemed a little pricey and possibly time consuming to start guessing/replacing sensors by trial and error. All I found at O'Reilly's was a complete sensor assembly with harness. Was hoping there was a replacement sensor that wouldn't require replacing the complete harness and sensor, since I would only be guessing that the right side was the one needing replacement.

SOURCE: My ABS light keeps coming on and off. Sometimes

Sounds like one of the sensors at the tires is not working right. Its actually better if the light stays on. With it turning on and off will make it harder for you to stop cause the computer does not know what to do. Check brake fulid level. If it stays on you will have normal brakes. Have the sensors checked or replaced. ABS was design for panic stops so you don't lock up the tires an skid.

SOURCE: We had a recall 03 windstar ABS light was on all

I own a 2001 Windstar. Your noisy brake problem could be nothing more that new brakes being broken in. I have done many brake jobs on my 2001 Windstar as well as other vehicles that I have owned. To prevent this problem from occuring, I apply a thin film of Disc Brake Quieter directly to each brake pad during the installation process. This quiets the brakes during the break in period. I hope this helps.

I have a 2000 A6 and the ABS warning light comes on intermittently. Comes on after driving for a while and sometimes stays on for a long time then just goes off for a short time then back on again.


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.
If the problem still occurs you might access the ABS ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored.
Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ABS ECU & reset it.

My SRS, ABS, and Brake lights stay on. Sometimes the Brake light will go out but sometimes it will stay on. The SRS and ABS lights are always on. The car seems to be driving okay.


brake light could be a sensor wire or the pads are worn out ,the srs light could be the wiring connections under the front seats ,the connectors need a clean or rubbish under the seat has dislodged them.Abs light coming on could be caused by the low brake pads but its doubtful more like one of the metal toothed rings is loose on the drive shaft ,also could be low on brake fluid if the pads have worn down and the fluid level has dropped

Hello we have a 2000 mercedes clk430 and when you are driving and attempting to stop it feels like the brakes are pumping themselves (the brake petal) and then sometimes the abs and check engine light...


I would start by either replacing the abs switch or checking the present one to be sure it is ok. I am assuming there is disc brakes all four wheels. The pumping would indicate to me that the rotors are not running true or again the abs sys is trying to kick in. Hope this helps.

2003 Windstar brake light and abs light stay illuminated


I have had this scenario many times. It is usually one of two things...

1) Brakes are worn and need to be replaced (front pads/rotors)

2) One ore more of the ABS sensors are not reading correctly. This could be either a hub & bearing that need replacing, or just a sensor. It would need to be scanned and road tested to pinpoint the problem.
