Ford Galaxy Abs Light In Dash
Posted 24 April 2006 - 01:38 PM
I have a 9 year old Ford Galaxy which just failed its UK MOT test because the ABS warning light in the dashboard doesn't come on. It also doesn't light when the ignition is first switched on and all the others light in test mode.
Does this mean that a bulb in the dash is gone. Where is the sensor which tells this to come on?.
I have removed the dash panel and there doesn't seem to be a bulb on the back
which lines up with the ABS symbol. Do I need to take the dash assembly aprt to get inside or is one of the other bulbs (not in alignment with the symbol the culprit?
I was not even aware that my car had ABS anyway so is there a simple way to tell. If it doesn't have abs then the light would not work anyway.

Petrol 2.0 litre GLX model. It does have a ABS pump fitted and the slotted
disks on the wheel assembly so it must have ABS although there is no sign of
it working. I've been trying to hunt down where the fuse to it is sited so that I can check it. Can't find it though.
The car did pass MOT test on brakes though I dont think it needs the ABS for that.
I'm hoping its as simple as the fuse (when I can find it.
any idea where the abs systems fuse is?

I know this is not the right thing to do but you can use the power from the low fuel warning as that comes on then gose off in the same way as the ABS (I did this on my Transit van)to get it through the MOT after the mot you can sort it out properly.

still think that there may be no power as ABS has never worked it the few months Ive had it.
