Traction control/VSC fault

Has anyone that has had issues with the VSC intermittantly acting up found a solution? Last week I thought mine acted up for no reason (light seemed to be flickering, car felt a bit wiggly like the brakes were pulsing) it did it again today for no apparent reason, this time I definetley saw the light flashing and felt the brakes appling themselves.....I fix stuff for a living so I know how hard it is to figure out what's wrong when it's working so i don't want to bring in. I'm thinking it gets a false signal that it's sliding and applies the brake to bring it under control, it feels the car yaw, applies the other brake etc....theory only

VSC?

When I diagnose traction control faults, besides looking for fault codes I also check wheel speed sensor actual values while driving the car. I don't think there is much you can check without a Ford scan tool.

Probably a wheel sensor. Do you notice this more at highway speeds?

both times were moderate speed when accelerating normally 20-35 mph? the first was completely straight, the 2nd may hav had a slight bend in the road.
