does anybody know how to fix E350 ABS troubles? Seems there is no solutions to this problem.

Asked by Mar 06, 2014 at 11:08 AM about the 1996 Ford E-350

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

ABS dash light comes on intermittently, causes cruise control to stop working. No one
seems to know what the problem is with the brake system on these vehicles....Even most
mechanics say "don't worry about it, it's a Ford", seems like a ridiculous answer.

Apparently you have a bunch of uncaring mechanics, most good shops have the equipment to check the ABS systems on most every vehicle out there, it is a simple matter to hookup the equipment to get the systems codes, after that then it can get costly, but a lot of the Fords I have checked wound up being the speed sensor on the rear axle, but you need the codes first. Try a different shop.

I agree entirely with tennisshoes. Find a TECHNICIAN. You didn't state if it was a "Rear Wheel ABS" or "4WABS". Some other possibilities for an ABS problem are loose wheel bearings, bent axle, carrier bearings (for the diff mounted sensor), low brake fluid level, or even the ABS module its self. Get codes (if any), check the resistance of the wheel speed sensors, the wiring and finally the ABS Module.

check your brake fluid level it gets low them abs will deativate causing cruise to stop also.

My dash ABS light came on and changing the sensor at the rear end did not fix it it. Took it to Ford and they found the wire at the instrument panel came off. I was driving on I5 and there were a lot of pot holes so I guess that is what jarred it loose. As soon as I started going uphill the light came on. Fixed in 20 minutes and been good for 4 years so far no more light.
