Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
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!
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

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

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.

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!
