Question about 2002 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

ABS/CHECK ADVTRAC/SKIDDING CAR LIGHTS GO ON

Hello I hope someone out there can help. I have a 2002 Ford Explorer 4x4. When I start my car, the ABS light goes on and stays on. When I put the car into drive, the skidding car icon comes on and the check advtrac message displays. about 2 seconds later the "4x4 high" lights starts flashing. Sometimes it flashes and sometimes it remains on. Can someone out there help me!

Thanks
Sam

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
get the abs system repaired

SOURCE: AdvTrac light remains on all the time and "check AdvTrac" message

You will have to retrieve and clear codes from VDM module with a scan tool. You may also have to calibrate it as well.

SOURCE: our abs light advtrac light

You may have a bad wheel bearing--do you hear a growing noise that gets louder with speed? The wheel sensors on your wheels are sensitive to excess motion between the wheel hub and the wheel, as they have a small gap between the sensor and the tone ring on the axle. The speed sonsors are used by both the ABS and the traction control systems on your truck. You can check your bearings for failure by jacking up the car and trying to shake the wheel. If the wheel doesn't have noticeable play, the bearing may still be bad enough to cause the sensor to misread the speed. If you're not sure, have your mechanic check the wheel bearings. If you have more questions, please let us know.

SOURCE: have an 05 ford explorer. The ABS, ADVTRAC lights

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
You may just have system failure and I suggest that you remove the positive battery connector. Let it sit for atleast 5mins. or more before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

2005 ford explorer ABS, SES LIGHT, AND ADVTRAC LIGHT ON


The first thing to do is to have the ABS and engine computers scanned for trouble codes.
The problem with the check engine light could also turn on the ABS and traction control lights. Or it could be different issues.
The gas gauge being out of calibration could be the float in the gas tank or the gauge on the dash. I doubt that problem is related to the warning lights.

Hello my abs light is on constantly and the 4x4 high light flashes can you tell me how to fix


For your car when the ABS light comes on the 4x4 light is triggered as well. Run a scan on the car to be sure. However a broken or cracked tone/impulse ring can cause this. Have them checked. Even if you replace parts, a scan tool will be needed to clear the MILs ( malfunction indicator lights)

My abs lights and advtrac lights came on simultaneously and i don't know why


It means you have a fault in your vehicles antilock brake system. Having the light on will disable the abs system. Antilock/traction control keeps your wheels from locking up and provides you with a more controlled stop, such as in rain or snow. Take it in to a repair facility and have them scan the abs system for fault codes codes

2002 Ford Explorer 4x4 will not engage. neither 4x4 hi or 4x4 lo will engage. Follow the manual instructions for trans gear position. No trouble/warning lights on in the dash.


Being that its a Ford you may need to check or change the switch or there is a problem (be it electrical or mechanical) with the transfer case. Hope this was helpful

Good Luck =)
