Hi there:
The 4WD module gets info from the ABS module, so when one has a fault, it affects the other. First I suggest inspect the front ABS sensor indicator rings an the axles and scanned the ABS module to know if some fault code is there. They are known for breaking, and possible damage could occur to front abs sensor. Repair the sensor issue and both lamps should go out.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Usually it means there is a component of the system that is not working. It could be a sensor or mechanical problem.
You'll probably need to take it to a dealer or major shop to get it tested.

P0750 and P0755 codes on a 2005 Ford Escape, 6 cyl. Codes were pulles with the Check Engine light came on and then the warning light (O/D Off/Transmission) started flashing.


All I will tell you is, that any time you have transmission
issues,you have to stop using the vehicle immediately

It doesn't matter what the situation is with transportation
or appointments,your vehicle has priority over everything

If not, your going to end up pulling it out & your repair bill
will start at $1,500 & go up

Both those codes, as I suspect you know, appear to be
shift solenoids & you don't exactly have a premier trans
to start with,mazda I believe

I would suggest a trans repair shop

The 4x4 light is blinking off and on


Typically this means that the truck is trying to engage 4wd, and can't. moving slightly should allow it to. If it doesn't, you have a problem.
Some models will flash the 4x4 light when you are in 4wd low. I am assuming it is a new thing, so this probably doesn't apply.
Turn your wheel fully to one side, and if it doesn't "grab" as you move, your 4wd is not functioning, and you need to take it to a mechanic, or grab a service manual, depending on your skill.

2006 ford escape.. #1. abs light on & stays on. #2. 4wd light comes on,flashes 8 times then gos off


Changing the sensors &/or tone ring may work temporarily but it won't last. I have a 2005 and have had it done and it kept happening. Had it serviced at dealer, asked dealer how to fix it or make light go out and on and on....after I think 5 yrs. it is still on. It hasn't affected my vehicle as far as I can tell. Comes on blinks 8 times, goes off....drive another 8/10ths of a mile and it comes back on, flashes eight times...and so it goes tidily bomMust be an Escape kinda thing.
