ABS Light on truck running fine

Hey everyone,
I am a newbie to the forum and first off want to thank everyone for all the help along the way. I have encountered a problem that I can not find a post/solution to. My ABS light came on yesterday, I took it to a buddies shop yesterday to have it scanned and it came back that all three ABS sensors were bad?? He told me he thought it was probably a ground issue. I have checked all the sensors with a multimeter and they all seem good (checked them for OHMS and cont.) Has anyone heard of the ABS modules going out? Does anyone know the locations of the ground(s) for the ABS system? Thank you in advance. My truck is an 05 6.0 with 183,000, and bone stock except an EGR delete. I am having no issues with the speedo or the overdrive.

it may be a speed sensor in the rear.. I have NEVER heard of all 3 ABS sensors going bad. speed sensors on the other hand are more common. sensor can not accurately read speed and trips ABS.. not sure how to trouble shoot them but like a $15 part. just had mine changed by brother in (lead diesel tech at local ford dealer/garage)

Aaron is correct. I have the same issue intermittently. The abs light will come on and the brakes work fine. I had my buddy from the Ford dealer plug it up to his diagnostic tool and it showed the rear wheel speed sensor was bad the part is like $95.00 and it does not look hard to replace.

i have the same issue. i talked with my diesel guy and he said his truck occasionally does it. He said its mostly likely a harmonics (sp?) balance issue that kicks the ABs light on. Mine kicks on while in cruise at freeway speeds. Cruise kicks off and ABS light clicks on. Turn off truck, turn back on and the light resets its self. It just started happening with mine after taking her on a 5,000 mile trip which included Death Valley at 125 degrees.

My truck just started doing this same thing. Did you ever locate the problem?

Replacing the speed sensor fixed mine. Have not had a single issue since it was changed.

The speed sensor is located in the read differential housing, correct?

Would you happen to have a part number?

Thanks!
