 Vehicle was looked at 4 times during the warranty period and since then i have worked on it myself, every 6,to 7000 miles the same thing shows up again, the yellow warning light will come on , if you shut the engine down the light will go out sometimes it will come back on during the remainder of the trip sometimes it will not. it happens after i have been on the road about 200 miles , i talked to numerous other ford rv owners who have had the similiar problem. ford should have a recallon these sensors.

 1995 ford e150 based conversion van has had the braking systems/abs hydraulic control unit replaced twice in less than 83000 miles. both replacements were done at ford dealers and copies of both invoices can be provided. since this failure disables the abs system and produces a hopping in the rear wheels i think this is a hazard that need to be looked into. *tr

 Abs control unit failed 1996 and replaced. failed again dec 2001 and replaced for $761. a multi-ton 15 passenger van should have working abs brakes. with the repair cost, i suspect many owners are not fixing the defects and it is under-reported. apparent part number change suggests possibility ford knows of a problem and has not reported it. narrowly avoided major collision when abs were inop. *ak
