ABS activates at low speeds when applying the brakes below 10 mph (no abs light on), my r/frt wheel bearing broke apart & damaged the spindle, I replaced spindle, ABS censor, both bearings, brake pads & rotors, all from Ford no after market parts. All ok two days later ABS started activating. It was suggested that I place a thin washer behind ABS mounting to move sensor away from pick up ring on rotor, now I get a steady ABS light. Removed washer light is out but Abs still activates at low speeds. Before I take vehicle the dealer to see if any codes are logged in computer, any suggestions???? please help. Thank You

Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the Ranger section. You should find out what the codes are. The original problem might have been coming from the front sensors, but if you are getting a code a couple of days after these parts were replaced, then it could be something else.
