Question Abs light on - 2000 mustang v6

MY ABS LIGHT HAS BEEN TURNING ON. I CHECKED MY BREAKS AND CHANGED THEM BUT MY LIGHT IS STILL TURNING ON... DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT IT COULD BE?

MY BROTHER IS TAKING AN AUTO TECH CLASS AND HE SAID IT COULD BE THE FACT THAT I CHANGED TO 18" WHEELS... BUT THE LIGHT TURNED ON LIKE 3 MONTHS AFTER I CHANGED MY RIMS...

HELP PLEASE!

THANKS!

First check your brake fluid. This has been known as a warning for improper fill.

Most likely after that you have a bad sensor somewhere. You can try checking all of them, replacing them and what have you. I doubt new rims size would afect ABS although I can not say for certain. Try checking all the ABS lines to make sure there are no kinks or anything either and the lines are fine as well.

Other than that you can find an ABS scanner which should tell you exactly what the problem is. To buy the ABS scanner is costly, and I don't think auto part stores do it for free like they do with CEL. It might be worth checking out though.

Thanks!

Where exactly are the abs sensors? Are they hard to replace/expensive?

Re: Abs light on - 2000 mustang v6

Not going to lie I'm not 100% sure. The sensors should be right behind the brake caliper somewhere. You should see a second line coming in under the wheel well and I believe the sensor is at the end.

I'm not sure of this or the price because I haven't had the chance to mess with ABS system (thank god, *knock on wood*). To replace them I'd observe some extra safety rules (actually disconnecting the battery, maybe even as faw as bleeding the system). When I get home I will see what the Haynes manual has to say. If I forget to post again by tomorrow and you're still unsure just bump this thread and it'll remind me.

if you look at your brakes there is a gear that goes around by the sensor~ but i would check everything else first~ just going to 18 inch wheels has no impact on it.
