You need to have delaer pull the codes from the computers on borad. It sounds like an ABS brake issue.

Autozone can pull codes for engine & trans for free, so you could try that first. Wrench light is also for brake, body & chassis, brake issues.

    The rear toner ring could be the cause. It's about $50 for the part plus labor. Call a Ford service dept and ask the service writer how much it would cost to replace this aprt

How do i get the advancetrac light to go off, is their a sensor or is it in the transfer case


Christina, May just be a loose Tone ring, plug/wire,wheel speed sensor, etc. You will have to take vehicle into a good shop and have scanned for diagnostic codes to determine which sensor,wire,etc is bad and causing the advance track light to display and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Ford explorer adavancetrac light on all the time


sensor dont take to long to change and the price depends on were you get it from, but you need to know it is a sensor failed or just blocked. road muck can get stuck in there and give a failed sensor. the message you are getting is it needs to be serviced when the sensor is changed it can take upto 10 meters for the abs to reg the signal. if no abs and speedo jumps its the front pass side sensor. its more common for the front sensor to fail as they get the most rain/muck on them when turning. they rust up.

2005 Ford Explorer TPS and Adavance Trac lights are on.


Yes, using a tire of a different size will likely set the lights. Not sure what your local emissions test requires, but I would not put a bunch of miles on the car with the spare.

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.

2005 ford explorer ABS and AdvanceTrac warning light stay on


There could be many issues with this light on, only a professional scan tool or the FORD dealer has an OBD scanner that can talk to the ABS module. From a look at some common problems, people have changed the front wheel speed sensors to fix this problem.

I got a 2005 ford explorer. the check engine and the check advancetrac message comes on. how can i fix this?


Lincoln LS or 05 Explorer?

Check for Codes,you should know and have done that already

Could be a Wheel Speed Sensor,if advance trac is on,if an LS

Still need to have a shop diagnose ABS System, to find component
fault.

1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on


The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......
