I have a 2005 ford escape hybrid, while stopping for light or stop sign etc, it jurks before stopping and stability control sign comes on the dash. It doesn't do it all the time but is annoying.

Are all 4 tires the same size? Do all 4 tires have the same tread depth? Are all 4 tires properly inflated?

Yes, all 4 tires are relatively new with same tred depth. I inflated the tires also at 32 psi the other day. Thanks for input Bob.

Sometimes having a tire slightly different in overall size can cause strange symptoms. I wonder if you Hybrid is in need of a trip to the dealer for a software update (if available)?

Thanks Bob. I will do that in coming weeks and let the group know. In the mean time if any one have encountered this problem, I will like to know.

If I have time later this evening I will do some research. Doing some searching on Google might help you, but be prepared to do some reading.

I had the same problem it may be a broken tone ring. I have had to replace both on the front of mine. If you look under the front end close to the wheel you will see a gear looking piece. It has teeth on it the sensor counts the teeth. See if it is loose. If so call dealer to have replaced. The ring is not that expesive ($10-15)and they can replace just the ring don't let them tell you otherwise! But it takes a lot to put them on. They charged me about $200 to put it on. Money well spent! If one goes you can bet the other one will go soon to mine did about a year later.
