ABS light stays on - 2000 Town Car

770

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?

You will have to take it to a mechanic that can read sub-computer systems. The abs system needs to be read. They can tell you precisely which wheel sensor is bad or which ABS component is faulty. Most scans of this nature is not more the a 100 bucks. Well worth the value for the headache it will save you. Your only other option is to replace every wheel sensor and hope that it is the problem and not a bad ABS computer or proportioning valve...
