    Default 2008 Ford Ranger 3.0TDCI - ABS Light

    Just wondering if anyone has had this happen to them. Driving back from Laingsburg my ABS light came on and hasn't gone off.

    I checked the fuse in the engine bay and all seems fine. Also had an emergency brake situation on the M3 and brakes seem fine.

    I probably need to take it to have the error code read, but if possible I would like to try solve it myself.

    I had the same on my BT-50, it was the right front ABS sensor that was faulty. Replaced it with one from Mazda and all was good again.

    Thanks. Do you know where these are situated?

    I want to take them off and clean them.

    You will see them clearly behind the wheels. They have white wires.
    I can post a photo if you are interested.

    The white wire/cable isn't white any more but my pen points at it. The pen is on the ball joint. Its the LF wheel.

    Brake fluid level doesn't influence the ABS light.

    Thanks so much mate, your advice lead me straight to the problem area. The small bracket (holding the wire) bolt came loose and caused the wire to touch the wheel and wear through. Bit of soldering, tape and a new bolt with locktite and its all fixed.

    Thanks again.
