Any Car junkies around? (96 Ford Contour Question)
I know this is my second thread of the week, and I'm sorry.
I own a 96 Ford Contour that has had problem after problem since buying it off a friend for $650 (who had no problem before that, go figure). Well on Thursday of last week my car wouldn't start... I'd turn the key and it made a really bad sound but never turned over. So I went and bought a new battery Sunday, and replaced it. To my surprise my car started up just fine, and, bonus, the check engine light was off! (Has been on since I got the car)
Today. I get the car started and drive down the street... Then the check engine light comes back on, and a few minutes later the ABS light comes on in my car. Now I've seen the ABS light come on before, but it normally quickly goes away, but it stayed on from the time it came on until I got to work. I've not turned it on yet to see if it's still going.
Now the question is: What is the ABS light? What is it telling me? Is it brake related? Almost a year ago I had some place redo my brakes because whenever I pressed my brake pedal down, the car would stop, but it would slowly roll forward if I didn't pump my brakes.
Is this related? I'm pretty scared to drive this thing home, and I can't afford another $800 car repair bill right now. I JUST got some headway on my damn credit card.
e: I just recently checked the oil and transmission fluid. Each seem fine.
