1998 Taurus ABS Relay Location

When my abs light is on my battery will drain over night. I was told that the relay could be sticking, It does not stay on all the time. Never know when to expect it. I cannot locate it.

Have you checked the owners manual under fuses/relays?

The relay is integral to the ABS module. Most people just pull the IP fuse when they need to disable the ABS system but if it is hot when the key is off then that will not help and you will need pull them from the Power Distribution box in the engine compartment. This should help:

Relay is sold separately. I think it might possibly be behind the ABS bracket (battery tray holder).
