    Yes, the check engine light is also on. This all started behind a tire blowout a few weeks ago.

There is a light that states ETS? What is that?


Hi this is to do with the Electronic Traction System, ets, this system can normally be switched on or off with a button, when off the vehicle does not have traction control and if one wheel spins faster than the other it will make no difference, but when enabled if one wheel spins faster than the other the traction control system cuts in and equalises the traction between the driving wheels....hope that helps

Will not go over 25mph


Could be a frozen brake pad/ emergency break. The other option is the antilock breaks or traction control is not allowing the tires to move faster then 25mph

TRACTION CONTROL ISSUSE, ENGINE HESITATES at 50


What you have is brake debris in the sensor area. The hesitation is just the Traction control working. The Traction control is suppose to limit one wheel from spinning faster than the other. It does this by interrupting the engine and applying the rear brakes to the faster spinning side.

Most likely you have brake debris from the emergency brakes blinding the sensors. The rear E brakes are hidden from view and are actually small drum brakes inside the rear rotors.

My traction control light comes on all by itself on dry pavement and then my digital speedometer goes crazy from 35 mph to 150 mph and everything inbetween. it will do this for miles and then straighten...


I'm begining to think the problem is related to erroneous speedometer input data, ( could even be a trans speed sensor, or the speedo itself ) which falsely makes the TRACTION CONTOL SYSTEM think the drive wheels are actually SPINNING, and losing traction, causing the light to appear. Hopes this helps

Problem solved. Recently we put newer tires on the rear which are a lower profile than the front. Don't ask. The point is, aside from the typical oil leaking into the plugs problem, the problem was caused by the rear wheels spinning faster than the front once at the higher speed. Traction control turns off the fuel injection. All is fine now that the front and rear are switched.

TRACTION CONTROL.


that is what it is desgined to do - reduce acceleration and apply the brakes intermittently when the wheels spin. You have a switch you cn push to disable it. You need to disable each time you start car. See owner manual.

06-10: Traction Control 1996 Contour, Mystique Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Traction Control System The optional traction control system is designed to control wheel spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces. Traction control system is available only with anti-lock brakes. The traction control system includes the following components:
  • Hydraulic control unit.
  • Throttle control actuator (9N825).
  • Traction control switch.
  • Traction control warning indicator.
  • Front brake anti-lock sensor (2C204).
  • Rear brake anti-lock sensor (2C190).
The traction control system operates as follows:
  • System functions by transferring torque from the spinning wheel to the wheel with the most traction.
  • This is achieved by applying the brake at the spinning wheel through the hydraulic control unit or reducing the throttle opening.
  • Traction control braking and throttle control occur at vehicle speeds up to 50 km/h (30 mph).
  • At vehicle speeds above 50 km/h (30 mph), only throttle limiting control is used.
  • If speed control is operating when traction control system engages the traction control system will disengage speed control through the use of a speed control relay. This action is the same as applying the brake pedal with speed control engaged.

Traction Control Switch The traction control switch is located on the instrument panel, left of the steering column.

02 mustang: 6 cyl -skid light appears and will not go faster than 50-60 mph


a wheel sensor on the side that hit, has had a cable cut or is smashed

not a solution, a suggestion,
a broken or cut cable on the sensor would suggest to the computer that the wheel is locked, no movement, a skid
