Advance Traction turned off and keeps going off


Asked by Mar 30, 2014 at 11:06 AM about the 2006 Ford Explorer XLS V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got stuck in the mud, and ever since I got out, my advance traction turns off and my 4X4 High light flashes on and off

2 Answers


Also, my ABS light came on and stayed on. A friend told me to disconnect the battery and reconnect it. This didn't help "reset" anything. When I first start up the truck, the Advanced Traction control is on, but as soon as I go forward, there is a grinding noise in the front end, the truck is sluggish to move forward, the Advance Traction Off light comes on, then it goes forward. But, after a while, the 4X4 High light starts flashing on and off.
