Hi Hotrocks, The ABS and Trans mission light indicate a problem with the speed sensors. Just guessing but do the gears still change correctly? Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and it will pin point the area of the problem. Regards John

You need to remove your tyres and clean the abs sensors well enough.

You might also change your brrake pads if they have gone bad.

As with all such complex systems you will only know by having those systems tested. Get the vehicle to a repair shop, preferably a Ford one as they will have the most up to date service bulletins, and they will read the codes and give you an idea of what's going on. They'll also know whether Ford have any extended warranties/recalls on those systems if there are known issues with them on that model.

What would make my four wheel drive not work on my 2006 ford escape?


Sounds like one of the ABS tone wheels has broken. Any one of them that does not function properly will cause the 4 wheel drive to quit working. There should be an ABS fault code that triggers a dash light but perhaps not in this case. Inspect each wheel end tone wheel and if you can turn any of them without rotating the hub/ tire assembly you have found the issue

Flashing 4wd and steady abs light on ford escape


I have a 2005 Ford Escape and have this problem. I can tell you that if the light comes on every .8 miles and blinks for 8 times, learn to live with it. After taking to dealer when it first started in about 2008, having the tone ring changed on the CV's for the tires, after been told maybe an alien lived in there....the light sell happily blinks on.If it comes on and stays on I would worry more than if it blinks intermittently. Mine has what they call "Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive" [which must be an oxymoron], but still has the 4X4 light to indicate when supposedly it switches in to 4-wheel drive according to driving conditions. Certainly if you haven't noticed any other abnormalities with how the vehicle drives this could very well be the culprit.Hope this helps.

What codes have you retrieved,if any?

Even when you give us codes,you still
will need a repair shop to diagnose the
ABS issue

Whomever did the brakes may have created the issue
but I would think it is just a coincidence
