2000 Ford Taurus SE FFV Engine Size : V6
I am working on a 2000 Taurus SE FFV, that has the ABS as well as the Red Brake Warning light on constantly. This is my sister-in-laws car so I'm the middle guy/mechanic.
She said the ABS light has been on for awhile, and that the red light just came on recently.
I am helping her get it fixed for inspection. The following is a quick recap of what I have done so far, without getting the red light to go off.
Checked back brakes, adjusted back brakes, adjusted emergency brake cable.
turned (1) front rotor, replaced front pads
Light still on
Checked parking brake switch, it works correctly
checked fluid level, again
replaced master cylinder, reservoir, and fluid level switch
light still on Not sure what to check next. I've been told the ABS light on should not affect the red warning light?????
Answer: There are certain codes in the ABS computer that will turn on the red brake warning light. You need to get the codes scanned form the system first.
