Recently my ABS Warning Light appears while driving. Im confused because im not sure if it could be an electrical fault or not, because it usually takes 2-4 minutes for it to appear but appears at different times each drive. Any helpful comments would be great.

Cheers

[url][/url][url][/url][url][/url]take a look in fordmod resources 4 abs diagnostics chart, in part the diy section. Make ur own diagnosistic reader. Testd my ef futura recently, had similar prob but lights always on. Turnd out 2 b rear left wss (wheel speed sensor) yet 2 repair. Since, my brake boosta has huge crack through it, fix it 1 day. So take a look c wat u find hope this helps.

Could be a number of things, remove front disc rotors and check that the tone wheels are fitted correctly, and the holes arent blocked, could be a faulty Wheel speed sensor, could have somehow broken teeth off the tone wheel on the rear axle (hope this isnt the problem as you'd need to replace an axle) Could be the ABS module, but as mentioned, you'd probably get an inconsistant pedal feel if so, Maybe the master cylinder too, but I'd have also thought you'd get an inconsistant pedal feel.

Sounds to me like a wheel speed sensor is faulty, or you have a tone wheel that is not running true.
