ABS Light & Engine Hiccup

Hi, I'm a newby and if this is the wrong place for this thread, please direct me to the correct location. Here is my problem: Returning from Iowa to Okla yesterday, my 2006 F-250, 6.0, suddenly hiccupped and started slowing down. I noticed the ABS light on but when I hit the "Resume" button, the cruise came back on and everything seemed ok except the light was on. We stopped for a drink and when I restarted the engine, the light went off and stayed off for about an hour and then the same thing happened. There seems to be something wrong in the ABS system, but don't know if it's just a dirty sensor or something more serious. It came on again later when not using the cruise so I'm baffled. Any suggestions as to where to start looking? Thankshttp://www.powerstroke.org/forum/images/smilies/dunno.gif

Elkman, did anything else happen with electrical sytems? The radio blank for a second or the guages? Wondering if you had an electrical blip.

I have the same problem. I am starting to think it may be a speed sensor possibly because sometimes when the light is off the speedometer drops down to zero (no matter how fast your going) the ABS light will come back on and the speedmeter will start working again.

If multiple things happen it seems to point to some kind of electrical problem. There are several posts about intermittent connections and checking your wiring harnesses. Might be a good thing to start her up and wiggle the connnections and wires. Does it by chance happen when you go over a bump?

I didn't notice anything else happening. Tonight I checked for problem codes and none showed up. After running the engine a few minutes, the light went out again. I have a similar problem with my 1994 Mini Winni with a Ford chassis and 460 engine. Where was the post about poor electrical connections?
