Brake light, ABS light come on for a few mins then go away?

2002 4.6is with about 155,000 miles.

The brake light, ABS light and yellow triangle will light up for a few minutes and stay on even if the car is moving or standing still. If the car is restarted the lights are still on they seem to turn on and off randomly. Checked for codes and found none.

Did you lose power or disconnect power recently? Or have you had problems with your battery being low or going bad?

I don't know if the pre-facelift models have a steering sensor.

If it does, try resetting the steering sensor by (IIRC):

1. In Park with the engine on.
2. Turn the steering wheel lock-to-lock. Then re-center.

That should reset it.

Its simple to try so what have you got to lose. Good Luck!
