M ford escape just recently started turning on trac control and auto braking by its self only when I accelerate right or when i brake left or right.is there anyone who knows what it is or how I can fix it?and yes I've tried the traction control button many times as per manual
It's a 2008 ford escape,xlt.4x4. 90000 km only already had a rar diff
Otherwise fine......horrible gas mileage
You will need to hook up a scan tool, read the codes and watch whet the sensors are actually doing while someone drives. Doesn't sound like a simple concern. First question though, are all 4 tires the same size and properly inflated? TA and ABS systems can be sensitive to tire issues.
The 4X4 means the engine is powering all 4 wheels, its also using more power to do this meaning less MPG This and also depending on your engine size will also hurt your MPG if its the larger size It will be like driving an F-150 or F-250
Most likely it's a wheel speed sensor concern. The computer probably recognizes a sensor glitch as a need to turn on Traction Assist or ABS (or both). Hook up a scan tool and watch the wheel speed sensor activity while someone else drives. One is probably dropping out.
Did you ever find out what was wrong with your truck, Mine is doing the same thing. i got the same 2008 ford escape. and the ford dealers cant find anything.....help
My 2008 Escape did the same thing. It was cracked wheel sensor ring on both the front drive shafts. The original rings were weak. Ford updated the new ones. Expensive repair. Luckily mine was repaired under extended warrenty
