Brakes problem
1996 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 104K miles

I just changed my front brake pads and rotors and bearings and they work fine but my ABS light comes on either immediatley after I start moving or within 5 minutes of moving. After that it stays on. Do I need to bleed the brakes? Perhaps there is air in the line? Does the brake fluid even effect the ABS?

Thanks.

Jim

Did your new rotors have tone rings installed? If not, Did you swap your old rings to thew new rotors? :|

If its one piece and just slips over the spindle, the ring would press over the area around where you installed the seals. This is what it should look like from the backside.
