When it's raining hard, the ABS light on the instrument panel goes on. Also, the AdvanceTrac light on the panel goes on then off, or just stays on. Any idea?

Asked by Sep 21, 2014 at 04:02 PM about the 2012 Ford Escape XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The ABS/AdvanceTrac lights go on when it's raining hard.  The ABS light tends to stay on, the AdvanceTrac light may or may not stay on.  Had trouble turning once, vehicle stuttered when trying to accelerate.  Turned off TCS button and problem stopped.  The last time both lights stayed on, no prblem turning or accelerating.  Ideas?

1 Answer

It turned out to be the right rear sensor. It wasn't working.
