SOURCE: 2006 Ford Five Hundred traction control light on all the time.

This is a computerized traction control system that monitors the wheel spin and makes split second adjustments... if the light is on, Ford recommends servicing the system. I'd check with a local non-dealer mechanic that may be able to help you out cheaper than a dealer first.

Your best to get the system "code read". Withhout seeing the carits impossible to say, it could be anything. Sensor failure, wiring fault etc. Make friends with a good Mechanic.

Why would you NOT do something. Scan it. Most likely a bad wheel speed sensor.

My 2008 Equinox's traction control light came on the other day, by itself and said it needed to be serviced. In 2 days, it left. Yesterday, during snow, I pressed it on, and the car started to jump a...


The traction control light usually goes on when a wheel speed sensor is not sending valid speed signals to the traction control module, or the module itself is bad.

Modules can cost hundreds of dollars, or the wheel hub assemblies replaced to rectify a basd wheel speed sensor can also cost in the hundreds of dollars, unfortunately.

If it jumps a little in the snow, and the traction control light was off (indicating it was working correctly at the time), I wouldn't worry too much about it, as the traction control may be working properly at that time.

Was the jumping alarming making the car 'buck?'

The wheels may have been getting traction intermittently by hitting gravel or the road that didn't have snow and ice on it. This is normal.

However, if the bucking continues, I would have it checked out at the dealer if feasible.

Hope this helps and good luck on this repair.

On my 2006 Ford 500 the traction control light came on and stayed on. What does this mean?


when this light stays on it meands that the electronic control module has sensed a fault in the system and has diabled the Traction control, to find out wha this fualt is requires a trip to the local Ford dealer for a fault code test of the traction control system and diagnosis of the code found in the memory of the system.

I have an o7 five hundred the speedometer goes to zero and the tack shows two dotted lines as well as the air bag lght comes on and the check engine light and the abs and the wrench and traction control.


This is a sign of a failing instrument cluster. you need to have a dealer use the IDS tool to perform a scan reading prior to repair to see if any other systems are causing this.
