AFTER STOPPING VEHICLE AND TURNING VEHICLE OFF AND ON SEVERAL TIMES BRAKE WARNING LIGHT GOES OFF AND VEHICLE DRIVES NORMALLY FOR A FEW DAYS THAN PROBLEM COMES BACK. WHILE AT A LIGHT ONE DAY BRAKE WARNING LIGHT CAME ON DROVE FOR APPROXIMATELY 1 MILE AND NO BRAKES AT ALL WAS ABLE TO TURN IN TO A PARKING LOT AND APPLY THE EMERGENCY BRAKES TO STOP. LEFT VEHICLE OVER NIGHT THE NEXT DAY TURNED VEHICLE ON AND OFF SEVERAL TIME AND BRAKES BEGAN TO WORK. MADE APPOINTMENT WITH DEALER WHO ADVISED IT WILL BE THREE WEEKS TO GET IT IN. AFTER THREE WEEKS TO TAKE VEHICLE IN A WEEK LATER WAS ADVISED ABS HCU WAS PROBABLY BAD. COST FOR NEW ABS HCU MODULE $4700 FOR THE PART ALONE. PICKED UP VEHICLE WITHOUT HAVING IT FIXED AND DROVE LOCALLY FOR A FEW WEEKS WITH BRAKE IN "MANUAL MODE" UNTIL I TRIED TO STOP FOR A YELLOW LIGHT IN THE RAIN AND SLID THROUGH THE INTERSECTION SINCE ONLY THE BACK BRAKES WORKS IN MANUAL MODE. LATER ORDERED A REFURBISHED ABS HCU MODULE COST $1400.00, THE FORD DEALER IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN INSTALL UNIT SINCE THE MODULE HAS TO BE PROGRAMED TO THE VEHICLE SOFTWARE. TOOK TWO WEEKS TO GET AN APPOINTMENT DEALER HAD VEHICLE FOR ANOTHER SIX WEEKS TRYING TO PROGRAM AND BLEED BRAKE SYSTEM. DEALER FINALLY INSTALLED THE OTHER ABS HCU UNIT THAT WAS SENT TO ME WHEN I ADVISED THE REFURBISHING COMPANY THAT THE DEALER WAS HAVING ISSUES WITH THE FIRST ONE. DEALER ADVISED THAT THEY INSTALLED THE REPLACEMENT ABS HCU AND REPLACED THE BRAKE LINES, AND THE BRAKES STARTED TO WORK LABOR COST $1900.00. I+M GLAD TO BE HERE TO REPORT THIS SAFETY ISSUE THE NEXT PERSON WOULD PROBABLY NOT BE SO LUCKY.
