I've got a 98 Taurus with 49K miles. About a month ago, I noticed my
high-beam indicator on the dash wasn't working (just the blue light on the
dash--the highbeams work).
Last week my ABS light started flickering occasionally. I checked things
out and noticed that I needed some brake fluid, plus a new set of pads on
the front (back were fine). That didn't help the ABS light.
Around the same time the ABS light started flickering, I noticed the parking
brake light wasn't working on the dash (neither when you set the parking
brake, nor when you start the car). I pulled the dash apart today, thinking
the bulb was bad on the high-beam light and the parking brake light.
Replaced both, no difference.
HELP! Now the ABS light comes on within a few hundred yards of starting to
move. The parking brake light still doesn't come on, and the highbeam light
doesn't come on. I don't think the highbeam light is related to the brake
problems, but the parking brake light problem may be related to the ABS
problem ... ?
