ABS light stays on - 2000 Town Car

Asked by Jun 01, 2010 at 10:36 PM about the 2000 Lincoln Town Car

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Abs light flashes several times when I start the 2000 Lincoln Town Car and then comes on steady.  It is almost as if the computer is trying to read the sensors and one comes back faulty??  How do I know which one is faulty without going to ford and getting them to scan it for a fortune?  Also could it be something other than the ABS sensors?
