Problem with Traction Control System
Jul 15, 2010 - Manhattan, IL - Traction Control System
ABS FAILURE WHILE DRIVING DUE TO 2 BROKEN TONE RINGS . THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM ON ALL YEAR ESCAPES . SUDDEN LOSE OF ANTI LOCK CAUSES LONGER STOPPING DISTANCES AND CAN CAUSE LOCK UP WHICH CAN CAUSE LOSS OF CONTROL.
Apr 14, 2009 - Gardiner, ME - Traction Control System
MY BRAKE SYSTEM FAILS OFTEN WHEN BRAKING. IT AS THOUGH THE BRAKES STOP WORKING FOR A SPLIT SECOND, SIMILAR TO HOW IT CAN FEEL WHEN THE ANTILOCK BRAKES COME ON SKIPPING SOME IF ON ICE. BUT THIS IS OCCURRING ON DRY PAVEMENT. WHEN I BROUGHT THIS IN TO FORD THEY SAID THEY COULD NOT FIND AN ISSUE, BUT SAID THE BRAKES ON THE FORD 2008 ARE NOT THE GREATEST SO I SHOULD PROBABLY GET THEM REPLACED AND THIS MAY SOLVE THE PROBLEM. I ALLOWED THE FRONT BRAKES TO BE CHANGED, THE PROBLEM IS STILL OCCURRING. MY CAR HAS LESS THAN 30,000 MILES ON IT. I HAVE NOTICED THAT EACH TIME WHEN I FEEL THE BRAKES SLIP, THE ABS ACTIVE/TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT COMES ON IN MY CAR. HAS THERE BEEN OTHERS COMPLAINING OF THIS SAME ISSUE?
