ABS light on after hard braking

Hi there,

I have an F350 2005 I recently replaced all the brakes around 2 months ago so I know they are all good and stop well. Today I was driving and a semi flew over lanes and nearly wiped me out, I slammed my brakes on as hard as I could and all was good I felt the ABS work etc I managed to stop in time. Then forward 30 miles of driving I was just driving home and the ABS light has come on. Each time I turn the truck off and then back on it reappears. I have checked the fluid and that's fine and the brakes are still working ok.

Any ideas what it could be?

Phil

From what I understand the ABS system codes can tell you whats wrong but, the ABS codes cant be read with a regular scanner. Either a dealer or someone with Auto Enginuity software should be able to tell you what has caused the system to throw a code. Typically its a sensor thats not working properly.

There are abs sensors at each wheel, behind the rotors. I believe they somewaht magnetic, they get covered in crap over time and the signal stops flowing to the computer. U may want to pull the sensors and clean them. Its a common issue on many abs cars and trucks.
