Anyone had a Check ABS light come on - it just decided to stay on today? Fuses and connectors seem fine. Any ideas - besides going to Fraud to have my wallet raped?

This coupled with the ignition coil dying yesterday really didnt make me happy... :x BAD FALCON! :twisted: ..well ok, i could never stay mad at you.

Do your own diagnostic first to see what turns up:

If the abs light is on, by all rights the ABS system should have disabled itself.

Diagnostic should tell you why the light is showing. Could be something as simple as crud in the tone wheel providing bogus signals or could be a dud computer.

I had the same thing happen to my (4 EF but the thing my EF does not have ABS and also my air bag light came on, i found out that if you have disconnected your battery or in my case the earth terminal had that acid crap on it and gave a low power they come on, get new earth terminal and then reset the ecu faults.
