If it comes on have the dealership check the sensor (and wiring) below the car and/or the module in the center console (a connection may be loose).

Let them know what your concern is and how your dealer has not been able to duplicate/diagnose it. They will then document this for you, and provide you and your dealer with next steps. Ford of Canada’s number is 1-800-565-3673. If you need further assistance, just PM me with the info I requested earlier.

I have had this problem after drifting. Im guessing from the dirt flying around the sensor gets messed up. After i finish drifting i just turn the car on and off and the service advanced trac light goes away.

There will be nothing a dealer can do for you. Your choices are A) Lemon law it or B) Deal with it. I went through the whole thing, starting lemon law, then stopped the process and just decided to deal with it. Not once (that I know of) has a dealer been able to diagnose the problem. I know one other said it was a brake light switch for him, but I think that particular case was a fluke.

Whats the difference between AdvancedTrac and the traction control? are those two different things or just traction control?

deysha,

thankfully i had a moment when the warning light stayed long enough for me to make it to the dealer and had it diagnosed on the spot before it canceled itself. they were able to diagnose it as an "open circuit in the stoplamp switch". they got me a service loaner asap and replaced the switch... so far so good.

there is much more detailed info on the work order which i can scan, but i don't know how to make this site host it for me... sorry.

thanks for your help deysha, and to everyone else who contributed.

yes i am grateful to have the stang back again... although i am appreciative of having a free service loaner (my friend with a mazda gets told to walk down the street to a rental car company and deal with it), but puttering around in an old ford focus with too much febreeze in it just isn't the same. and i now know where the interior door handles and headlight switch come from... parts bin raiding at it's best. :laughlitt

also grateful to have traction control at 100% because of the snow i had to deal with today... fun!

Hmmm...I now seem to be having the exact same problem as the other folks. Intermittent problem. Car is now a year and a half old. Now that it's cold outside I've had the "Service AdvanceTrac" light come on and then go out after a restart. I'm not too concerned but I'm hoping it doesn't get worse with age. I really don't want the system shutting down when I need it most.

Hello tmodem,

I recommend you bring your vehicle in to your Ford dealer as soon as possible and get it diagnosed. Then if you need further assistance, please contact Ford of Canada at 1-800-565-3673 or me.

Sorry guys! I've only seen my advanced trac light come on once. It was when I accidentally turned a" u turn" into a" j turn" and the car yawed like 45* past straight after giving some gas in second on a rainy day :kooky:!! Fun, but sure was glad the yaw control works! If it's dry out all the nannies go out the window.

Had "Service Advancetrac" come up on my dash this past Saturday. Drove around several times on Saturday and Sunday and the error would not go away on its own. Plugged in my tuner to flash back to stock in anticipation of a trip to the dealership, but the computer reset that the tuner did during the flash to stock seems to have cleared the error completely. I'm guessing I'm in the clear if it doesn't come back again.

has anyone had the service advance track light stay on??? because mine is. it's got the winter rims on right now so you get the tire pressure moniter fault but abs,traction control won't engage got both lights with the slippery symbol and one says "off". Just bought the vehicle last month and it happened in the first week of me owning it. But because of work have not had time to get it in to dealer. great way to learn the raw power of the car but really crappy on a snowstorm day when you really want to hit the TC back on.
