Default Lovely Ford Electronics

So when I put my bodylift and 33's on I pulled my abs sensor fuse inside the cab. The light is always on, on the dash cluster. So I'm driving the other day and I notice the lights out! WTF?! I just dont see how this is happening. Wasnt wet/raining out or anything. My ABS should not work no matter what because I pulled the fuse out right? The thing Im worried about is ABS kicking in when Im just driving and I f*ck up something really bad.

What are your thoughts? Thanks

It's not going to do that, don't worry. What fuse did you pull?

Theres no way for it to happen when you driving as long as you pulled the correct fuse.

Why don't you want your abs to be working properly?

If you can locate a scanner with ABS code functions you can see if the code is still active and the light just burned out.
ABS still can't apply braking power no matter how out of wack it gets. Or if your worried about it kicking in when your braking, the fuse is pulled. It's bypassed.
So yeah why'd you pull the fuse? Don't the sensor wires reach anymore?
You don't have to route them the way they are stock if you need some slack. But they do need to be routed securely.

yea they reach. no problem. i just dont want to be wheeling and my abs kick on as im sliding down a hill and i take out my front end. Its now a big deal to not have it on, just got to be more cautious driving.
