Without diagnostic trouble codes my best guess would be the speed sensor on the transmission is in some way at fault, disconnected or wire broken. The inability to detect output speed on the transmission would prevent, in turn, the ABS from functioning. The ABS module needs to accurately compare speed sensor inputs from transmission and wheel hubs.

SOURCE: Ford Fusion 04 Engine Management Light

I had a 2002 model 1.4 Fiesta, same problem Engine management light or ECA, electronic accelaration Control (EAC), it needs a ford dealer to do a computer diagnostic, most likely that it will need replaced.

Mt friend who is a mechanic for ford said that it was a common factory fault and is very common in 1.4 zetec /duratec petrol models.

I now have a 2007 Fusion and was quick to see if this problem had been sorted on this model, and it has!!

Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: a light came on that said ABS... what does that mean???

It indicates that something is bad with your ABS subsystem.
First, did you have a wheel bearing, brakes, shocks .... replaced recently on your vehicule. If yes, maybe the wiring of one of the ABS wheel sensor has been diconnected and not reconnected, or damaged during the repair. Anyway, you should check first the ABS sensor wiring and connectors condition at each of your wheels. Make sure the connections are good.

If the problem is not found at this step, it will require a more in depth investigation by your dealer or a specialized shop.
Don't be afraid, in all the cases your basic vehicule brake system will stay fully operational. However, the added functionnalities brought by your ABS subsystem can be affected or desactivated until the problem is fixed.
If it's generating unusual noise or unusual driving feeling or unstability when breaking you can remove the ABS fuse and it will desactivate entirely The ABS subsystem.
Just take additional care driving on wet or iced road.
Hope it will help

Why is 2009 ford fusion abs light staying on occasionally?


All warning lights must be taken serious. Even when the light goes on, because the sensor is defect. Ignoring it and not repair this, makes you also get no warning when the system really fails.
Why the light goes on? could be a real error in the ABS system, could be a sensor problem. Impossible to see from here. Please let a tech check what is wrong and don't wait here for an answer like leave it, or remove the bulb, because that would be ridiculous and irresponsible.

Just brought BMW 316ti noticed a yellow light coming on in centre of dash do I need to worry


Of course you need to worry until you find out what the light means . IT could be a light warning you of a possible serious fault in the engine/ transmission ( engine fault light from no water ,brakes etc ) have it checked out before it can become costly.. Lights are not there as Christmas decorations but to save you money.

Hi can i bypass my ABS on my Fiesta 2009. My brakes only works rite when the ABS lights up on the dash....Before it lights up the brake are hard then you have to pump it a little the brake was bleeded


Lots of ways,,
Just pull the fuse ,unhook a wheel sensor,unplug the control box,
Anything to cause a fault,
As long as the ABS light is on you will have normal base brakes.
(I prefer mine like that)
Be sure the RED brake is not on however.
Hope this helps.

Ford fussion 2010 will start no problem but once transmission gear is selected the car appears to go into gear but will not move...forward or reverse...no dash sensor lights are on


I do not know the solution. However, I experienced the same problem on a rental in Hawaii (4 cylinder 2010 Fusion) as I was attempting to pull out onto a busy highway. Also occurred several other times.
In my opinion, it is a transmission defect and a safety issue. The car had less than 8000 miles on the odometer. Return it to Ford.
