New Brakes ABS Problems ::UPDATE::

i went and had new brakes put on the front and had the rear adjusted. Now the ABS light is on, and they will deffinalty lock up if push to the limit. Could it be somthing that they did when they put the brakes on or is somthing just plain broke? I went and tried to see if a ABS code would come up but nothing did...
I went back in as soon as i noticed it and they told me the light was on when i brought it in...Dont think it was but then again i didnt really pay attention to it and i have no proof that is wasnt...

changing pads wouldn't make the abs light come on. I took my calipers and pads off to clean before, and never had any unusual problems

if ur abs light and brake light are on, means ur abs is disabled. take it back to the shop and tell em to do it right this time.

Ordinary OBDII readers are for the PCM and cannot pull codes from modules like ABS, Restraints, 4x4, GEM, etc. Dealers have more sophisticated scan tools.

If the light was on when you brought it in they would have called you to ask if you wanted them to find the problem. They may have broke something when they went out beating up your truck err i mean test driving it.

Try reseting the computer if that doesnt work go complain.

Well i took it back up there and the new rotors dont have the sensor rings...are they supost to come on new rotors? I thought they were and since i knew nothing of them i didnt check...They said the rotors fit fine and everything is perfect, just no sensor ring.

sensor ring is in the wheel bearing assembly (look for the wire running into the back of the wheel bearing)

assuming the edges use the same wheel bearing same as the 4wd


You might as well replace the rear abs sensor. They are cheap and easy to change.

2WD Edges have the ABS sensor rings in the rotors just like 2WD XLs and XLTs.

However, pre 2001 Rangers may or may not have the rings in the rotors because Ford made both RABS and 4WABS Rangers then. It is possible that the shop supplied earlier rotors that fit but do not have the rings.
