So two weeks ago my traction control lights go on along with my ABS light and of course stay on in my 2010 Mustang coupe. The temp. outside was going between freezing and thawing. Initially I hoped it was just dirty or frozen but after a good washing and parked in a garage the lights stayed on. We then received a foot of snow in 2 days, and the wheels just stopped spinning and the traction control was out of my control. So off to the stealership it went. I was hoping they would just have to clear the codes or having it in their bays would help, unfortunately one of the sensors needs replacing. I was initially told 2-3 days to get the part in and installed. It's been a week and when I called the stearlership I was informed that the part was on north american back order. She told me that there wasn't one of these parts in north america. I was then told it could take 10 days to months before the part comes in. WTF don't that make Mustangs in North America? My car has been labelled unsafe and not drivable and with the winter we're having I actually agree. Has anyone else encountered this problem before
hey man, I don't go into the service center all hostile and angry. I know you catch more bees with honey.So I go in and interact with the people there like I would anyone else. Polite and courteous, I treat people how I want to be treated. I didn't freak out on the service rep when she told me that the parts were on back order.
I apologize if my turn of phrase is offensive, due to past history it is how I refer to them, I have done nothing to 'sow' this headache. This isn't the first time I've been led around by the nose, getting told one story then getting another one a few days later.
It's not the dealership that makes the parts, they install them. This is probably a common problem and every dealer is in need of the same part and pretty soon they run out and need to manufacture more. Relax it ain't so bad, you can get a rental through the dealer for nothing.
I know that Ford will do what it can to get me my part, my intention was not to vent on the service department. So getting back to my original question is this a frequent occurrence with the 2010 Coupes? Has anyone else had problems with the ABS/traction control sensors?
