I have a 1995 Ford Windstar. The BRAKE idiot light is on and there are two
letters below it. One is a (P) and the other is a (I) Can someone tell me what
they mean? I lost my manual years ago. Also the ABS light is on. The ABS light
came on a couple of month ago but goes off at times. The BRAKE light stays on
all the time. Brakes are fairly new. I just need to know what the P and I stand
Also what would I check first for the ABS?
Thanks for your help.
Assuming you are not driving around with your parking brake on, the light
means there is a malfunction somewhere in your brake system. It would be bad
for you to be driving around and have your brakes fail, right? So don't
drive it until you determine what the problem is. Could be low fluid or a
bad proportioning valve.
When the ABS light comes on, there is a fault in the ABS system but normal
braking isn't affected. But considering your brake light is also on, you
might have a major problem, and you should consider the vehicle unsafe to
drive until it is fixed.
