take it and get the codes read out of the abs module. If the light is on a dtc has been set. Any parts store will be able to check and tell you what the code is.

Thanx... Funny You just wrote this... I just got back in after driving & noticed that I got the sequence backwards. It's 1, then 3...

Guess that would be 13? But, I don't see that here. :/ I do plan on getting it checked out, though.

Yes, It's a code 13 then. My '94 Escort had a problem with the air bag system and would do the same thing. Flash the code with the light then stay on. But even the Ford Dealer couldn't fix it. It was an intermittent problem. The night I was hit, head on, the air bag light was off and it didn't deploy. So much for self diagnosis of the system! HTH. -Jim
