Hello. Have a 2008 4.6 Sport Trac 70K miles. Problem: The ABS light will come on along with the anti skid light which activates the "wrench" light. Then, within seconds, sometimes minutes, the lights go off leaving only the wrench light activated. When I stop and turn off the ignition, everything appears to re-set. I've gone as long as a couple of months without this happening but now it is happening with great frequency (daily). What is causing this and is it something I can repair myself. I'm "wrench handy" and have recently replaced the master cylinder and rear brake drums, front pads, etc on my wife's Escape. Thanks!
PS Just took the ST out and once on the road the lights were "triggered" within one minute. They stayed on for about 30-40 seconds then went off only to come back on within a minute or two.

could be your wheel speed sensor, scan to see which one is intermittent.

FYI, I bought the torque app for android and a Bluetooth OBD dongle to get realtime guages
used it to figure out which wheel sensor was bad on my truck by monitoring all 4 wheel/abs sensors whilst driving
when a sensor is missing the traction control and abs are disabled because traction/brake corrections will be wrong.

pretty easy fix, sensor price varies by brand and wheel location, but I think it is only 1 bolt to remove the sensor.

other way - get scanned at parts store if the code is stored.
