ABS LIGHT ON DASH

2000 Ford F-150

Brakes problem
2000 Ford F-150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 155650 miles

Lately the ABS Light on DASH will remain on after the vehcile sits over night but after driving say 10 miles or less it will go off. The brakes appear to be fine. Is this something that I should be concerned about?

Yes, you should. The ABS computer is finding a malfunction and storing a code to identify it. The Anti lock is disabled as long as the light is on. You will need to have the codes read to get pointed in the right direction.
