every mechanic i know that has a legal license in ontario keeps telling me the ABS system does not have to be functioning to pass a safety. only at a dealership. and a window sticker that says abs is standard equipment is absolutely true, it is standard equipment. safety laws do not say it has to be working, only foundation brakes.



at the wrost cant you just pull out the bulb? if the light is not on they cant fail you

Then choose your words more carefully.
the ABS isn't Secondary equipment, its Standard.

i went to work and asked a bunch of different guys and they all gave me the same answer again today... and standard equipment does not mean it has to work for safety. it means the truck comes with it. just because your truck may have a 6 disc cd player standard does not mean it will affect a safety

I would think that pulling the bulb would constitute fraud.

standard equipment means it comes with EVERY model. it does not mean it is a safety related item hence the cd player reference

Whatever happened with this Dan? Did you get everything worked out? I take it yes since you still have the truck.

Sorry guys, I've been having a tough month. My mom just passed away on the 12th of august from a sudden heart attack during the dinner hour. now I've got a ton of pressure on me as the only immediate family left to fix and pay a lot of loose ends plus this truck non sense. Luckily the mortgage to her condo was covered.. but anyway. I got the truck safetied through a local guy who did it for free because of my situation. E test cost me $30. Ford signed off on the papers, I dumped my savings into my truck for the 11000 plus dollars (taxes and interest). The truck is payed off and done but now I've got a ton of other problems to worry about. I'm just hoping everything works out in the end.

Yea thanks. It just gets tougher it seems, but everyone should remember to be close to their parents, tell your parents you love em, cause when their gone their gone.. really hits home. I got a ton of regrets being young and ignorant, but I think she could see through it. I just gotta clean up this mess and carry on with whatever hits me next.

Very sorry to hear about your mother. I've been through that, and I agree with everything you said. I lost my Dad about 7 years ago, and the one thing that sticks in my mind is talking on the phone to my Mom 2 nights before, and not talking to my Dad. After I hung up, I remember thinking "oh, I'll talk to him this weekend.", but I never got the chance. It's tough to let that stuff go.

I'm glad to hear you got your truck issue dealt with. I hope everything works out with the rest of your troubles. Keep positive, and I'm sure your mother knew how you feel.
