ABS Light?

The abs light in my truck came on last weekend, but the wierd thing is that its not throwing any codes and Ive checked all the fuses and fluid levels but cannont figure out where to go from there. Anyone have this problem before?

What are you using for a scan tool? If the ABS light is on, you can bet your bottom dollar there is a code stored in the module....

FWIW, not all scan tools can communicate with proprietary modules like the ABS, GEM or HEC.

I am using my hypertech hyperpac programmer/scanner. Are you thinking that this is maybe something only ford will be able to pull?

No... but your programmer can only pull engine codes. There are many aftermarket scan tools that should be able to communicate with all of your truck.... AutoEnginuity seems to be highly regarded on TDS.

so I had my buddy come over with his snap on scanner and it still doesnt have any codes coming up. Could this be a code that only maybe ford can read or something?

Is his scanner up to date? Is it even capable of communicating with "proprietary" modules? I only use factory scan tools so I'm not familiar with aftermarket tools.... but I would expect the owner of the tool to have that familiarity....

Not meaning to be facetious.... it is one thing to possess a tool.... knowing it's capabilities and how to use it are more important.... (that almost sounded naughty).

Post Vss Sensor Replacement

Hi everyone,
Similiar to above, my abs light came on this week.

After reading around the forum's I checked the VSS Sensor on top of the rear differential. i'm guessing that the problem. I could pull the sensor out without a problem. The two clips on the male side don't seem to be holding the sensor to the female side. Is the replacement easy (ie plug and play) or do all the wires need to be spliced onto a new male clip?

Hopefully this will take care of the abs light on the dash.
Thanks
Jim
