traction control

  1. Is traction control causing my loss of power?

    2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    I've noticed a surging feeling lately during hard acceleration. Typically in 1st and 2nd gear. To me it feels almost as if traction control is cutting power so the wheels don't spin. I'm in the habit of turning off TC as soon as I start the car, but maybe I'm doing something wrong. I noticed it...
  2. Traction control freaking out

    2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    Last night I took off from a stop, went to third gear like normal and then took it out of gear to coast. As soon as I took it out of gear the traction control light came on and the computer hit the breaks fairly hard. Then it let off the breaks and the light went out. It did this about seven...

    4.6L Tech
    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...

    4.6L Tech
    My 2002 Mustang GT had been running fine without any problems. It began raining the other day and of course I enjoy playing some while it is wet and most times I leave the traction control on.

  20. HELP: Traction Control System Problem/ ABS Light

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    So when my TCS off light is on that means it is off, what makes this turn on? I can only imagine that the TCS enables when senses "slippedge" of the tires? Also my ABS light remains on also, is that normal? and is that connected somehow to the TCS??? thank you =D
