Default ABS and TCS lights staying on, 2006 Mustang GT

I have a 2006 GT, and the other night I was pulling out of a parking lot and got after it slightly. My GT fish tailed a little, and then the ABS and TCS lights came on. Have ben on since " 2 days". Any ideas on this ? Without taking it to the dealership...... Thanks

Disconnect the battery and see if it resets. If not, you may have a damaged sensor.

I tried disconnecting the battery this morning for about 30 seconds, and they still came on. Does it matter about the length of time the battery is disconnected ?

Some times it does. I'm going to assume you did hit the reset button.

I looked through the owners manuel for a re-set button, and did not see one shown. I pressed the off button on the dash several times and nothing hapened. Is there one hidden ?

I'm talking about the one on the left side of the consol above the radio. It resets all the other light on the dash.

You may want to disconnect for a half-hour.

Yes I did press that reset button, but the lights are still on. I thought that re-set button only rest the info displayed for example : trip miles, MPG, gallons used etc.

It will also reset the tire pressure low light. I wasn't sure if it would do that also.

I did check out the reset button again, and went through the systems check. It showed that the brake system checked "ok". So ?? I'm at a loss....

Hear is what I found. That was for a '02 Explorer

Answer


You can reset the ABS computer by disconnecting the negative battery cable for a few minutes, then reconnecting it. If there is a fault in the circuitry, however, the light may return immediately after turning the key on as it performs it's self test. In addition, the light means that your antilock brake system is disabled...and this is an important safety feature of your vehicle. If equipped with traction control or stability control, these systems will also be disabled.
