My mom has a 2006 F-150 and this truck is giving us so many problems.
The first time we experienced the problem the ABS light started coming on, then a few days later the brakes began to pump, and after a week or so they began to make a grinding noise when the brakes pump. We took it into a shop (not a dealer) and they said that the ABS sensor on the passenger side was bad and they also replaced the pads. The second time we had the same problems and we took the truck to a different shop. The guy there told me that the first shop that we took it to put brake pads on it that were way too small and we were lucky that the truck would even stop. So at the second shop they replaced the ABS sensor on the drivers side, brakes, rotors etc. So now it has been a lil less than 6 months and we are at the same point again. Brakes pumping and grinding, I had a visual brake check and they told me the brakes and rotors were fine and that guy just looked at the ABS sensors and said they were fine. Didn't check the wiring or any of that so I am just kinda at a loss.
I am not a mechanic, nor do I know much about cars. My dad used to take care of these issues and since he passed away I am left to handle them. I fear we are being screwed over because we are female and are not mechanics. If anybody could give me some ideas of what else could be the problem I would greatly appreciate it! Does anybody think it would be beneficial to take it to a ford dealership instead of a tire shop?
