ABS Light

Hi,

I recently purchased a early very clean 1999 F250 crewcab/long bed with the 7.3l, 2wd, auto (127k) from the original owner. After owning it for about a week the ABS light started to come on randomly. Once it is on it will stay on until the truck is turned off, upon restart it is always gone. I have a scangauge II and have attempted to read the code when the ABS light is on and it states no code found. Brakes appear to be working just fine... Thoughts?

Thanks

So today I was backing out of my driveway. While in reverse going down the drive I hit the brakes as I was attempting to switch to drive and the brakes began pulsing like ABS and took a long time to stop. Then they worked fine again. Funny thing, light didn't come on at all for this.


Brake fluid levels are good, attempted to burp the power steering pump the other day to make sure there was no air in it. Power steering pump going bad??? 127k on the original one.

lift front tire off ground and spin it. if you hear scratching or growling replace hub. also grab tire at 3 and 9 position than push and pull. any excessive movement I'd replace as well. go ahead and remove abs sensor on top of rear diff and clean it off just because. (more than likely a front hub is the issue but why not clean rear sensor when it's free to do it). I had abs light come on a while back and I had to replace a hub and it went off shortly after.

Barely lift the truck up off the ground and use some kind of a crowbar to pry on the tire from the bottom.

Spinning I have some noise, flexing the tire at 3/9 and 12/6 it has a least a 1/4 inch of play on both front wheels. Sounds like the hubs are shot.
