  1. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    This started Friday night, the lights went off for a short trip, and then came back on. There's also a TCS button above the CD player that has lit up as "off". I barely even noticed this button in the past. As for the ABS light, according to Ford, the brakes are still okay but ABS is not...

    I'm new. My son picked up a 2000 Roush 4.6. Hydro boost was leaking power steering fluid. No other leaks. Brakes were working fine. Everything was unicorns and rainbows until I replaced the hydro boost. The brake pedal is on the floor. Won't rise up. Power steering bled and works fine. I bought...

    So I've had my 2011 V6 Mustang since September 2015 (3 1/2 months) and today, while I was driving, my SIRIUS radio popped and turned off then came back on. No big deal - thought it was a fluke. A minute later the car starts beeping saying "service advancetrac". I was about 5 minutes from...

    Hi, I just bought a 98 v6 and i was wondering if ABS was even an option on the car or was it just for the GT.?

    I have a 2012 V6 that has had intermittent traction control issues since 9000 miles, it now has 54,000. Traction Control light illuminations and engages ABS system while driving. It typically happens between 30 -40 mph while driving straight down the road. A few occasions while turning left onto...

    Hey guys I have a 2003 mustang automatic v6 with 122k miles and have some questions. So I was driving on a snowy road, and I went to turn around on some ice and this happened. When I applied the brake the ABS kicked in and wouldn't stop until I got to dry pavement. When I was in the snow the...

    So I posted awhile back about my ABS light being on but not being able to pull codes. The other day I replaced my oxygen sensors with Motorcraft's OEM sensors due to a CEL (check engine light) that came on every so often. They fixed the CEL and actually got rid of the misfire feel I was having...

    My ABS light has been on for about a month or two now and I decided to go get the code scanned so I can figure out how much the repair will cost so the annoying light will go away and traction control will work when my GF drives her. I went to my mechanic (he has a huge fancy scanner that...

    My right rear break squeaks unless I'm on the brakes. It's not a constant squeak its a "squeak squeak squeak squeak" type of squeak. If that makes sense... It speeds up with vehicle speed and slows when I slow down without touching the brakes. I'm going to take the wheel off and look around but...

    Hello, I am a new owner of a 2003 Mustang V6 convertible. The car has 80K miles on it and runs great! I had a problem with the front brakes dragging. After replacing all the inexpensive parts first, hoses, calipers, rotors, ect... with no solution to the problem, I was told it could be the ABS...

    I'm just joined the forum because I need help. Recently I swapped motors in my 98 Mustang GT. Put the same motor in it, I just dropped a valve that went thru the piston in my last one. Anyway, motor runs like a champ, but I'm not having brake issues. When in park and applying the brake, it feels...

    After getting home from a few fun filled weeks downrange I'm back in the Mustang saddle again. My husband has been driving the car some while I was gone but no Advanctrac problems happened to him while I was away. But after over 4 months of Ford troubleshooting, and 6 weeks of the Flight Data...

    Hello Gentlemen, I recently got the infamous ABS/Trac off light on my 2004 Mach 1, and after taking her to Ford figured out that the ABS module is bad. The dealership quoted me $1500 for repair, which I think is a little too much. I have done some research to see cheaper ways to solve this...

    Alright, so since I bought my 96 the ABS light has always been on. Well, should have been. The last owner took the bulb out and I didnt know until I had to replace a bulb in the dash, but that was almost months after I bought the car. So I really think its had this problem for as long as the guy...
  17. 2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    This past weekend I was hooning about in the GT (2012), and ABS completely flaked out, making the car un-driveable until I shut down and restarted. Here's what happened. On TN HWY 116, Advancetrac Off. The beginning of this situation is on a portion of 116 that is 11% uphill grade full of...

    Greetings members. 2011 V6 Mustang. The following has happened twice in the 4 months I've owned the car (purchased new). In both cases the car was warm but had been sitting for 30-60 minutes. In both cases I had just driven just a few blocks or less. In both cases I had the car pointed...

    I have a 1996 Mustang V6 and the ABS light has been on for a VERY long time now. My dad and i replaced the brake pads a while back. Other than that, theres nothing we've done to the brake system.
