2007 ford explorer wrench, ABS & Traction light

If they all come on at the same time, chances are its a problem the engine computer has found. The wrench is a warning light for the engine and transmission, the ABS and traction control involve both the drivetrain as well as the brakes. So if a problem pops up in one system the computer knocks out the others too.
Have the main computer checked for trouble codes and go from there.

Abs , traction lights on

I took STEGG's advise and I checked the exciter rings on the axles and I found that one was cracked and loose on the passenger side rear axel. The truck went to ford and because of the information I had about the exciter ring the repair was compleated in two hours and they told me that they could only replace the exciter ring insted of the whole axel. Total Cost for repair.$296.00.
Thank You so much for the info STEGG.

The abs sensors also control the traction control and 4 wheel drive actuators so if one of the sensors is faulty the traction control will be disabled and the drive system will be stuck in the mode set at time of failure be that 4x4 or 2wd
