Make sure the differential and auto box are not short of fluids. Many ABS systems take a sensor reading on the differential. If there is evidence that the pinion oil seal has been leaking (diff wet with oil and permanent oil drip at bottom) then it is very likely that the diff is in need of replenishment. The heavy shifts are probably unrelated and are due to low transmission fluid: should be able to refill via the gear fluid dip stick tube

Same exactand issue withif my 2002 F-250. Dont mess with any sensors until ALL fuses are physically inspected. I dont care what any master technician tells you. I am a controls specialist for Siemens and the Ford dealership told me it was my ABS module after telling me they found a short and had fixed it and replaced my VS sensor on the rear diff. They didn't troubleshoot it andand I doubt they have the mentalcommon capability. I'm surprised they can complete an oil change on their own. I found 3 weak fuses and replaced them. Problem solved. This could have been lead from a short in the wiring for the overdrive disable button on the shifter. If you have an automatic trans. Be sure to inspect this prior to replacing fuses so you dont burn any new ones. I believe the ones I found bad were 24,25 and 26. I went ahead and replaced every fuse since the cost was only a $16 kit. Ford charged me 500.00 to do nothing but lie to me.

2004 Ford Sportrac having problems with trans OD flashing on and off and sticking in gear?


When the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) isn't engaging or locks in engagement the light flashes a warning...The TCC solenoid may stick due to dirty transmission fluid...If the Check Engine Light
(CEL) is not lit have your transmission fluid changed...If it is lit the code is probably pointing at a defective TCC, Computer (PCM) or the clutch itself... you can take the vehicle to an auto parts store and have them read and define the trouble code for free...saailer

Mazda 6 abs light on, temperature gauge goes up, hard shifting ATX.


Dont think so here the ABS is a seperate computer,have you washed the car by any chance with a jet wash on the wheels this will often clean the sensors on the wheels for the ABS making the light go out

Mazda 6 abs light on, temperature gauge goes up, hard shifting ATX


Sounds like more than one problem.
The ABS light is on to tell you the abs system is disabled due to a problem. Same goes for the traction control which could be related to the abs system problem. Both systems have to work together.
The temp gauge issue could be a faulty thermostat or the cooling system could be low on anti-freeze.
The shifting problem could be related to either system.

My speedometer will not work check engine light goes on and off and the overdrive indicator light flashes. All this happens intermittently with hotter weather it seemingly happens more frequently. Scanned...


code p 0500 is for the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) which works the speedo as well as the ratio changes
code p0720 refers to the output shaft sensor --ECM or transmission control module (TCM)
the vss reports to the tcm which reads the road speed and gear ratio and shifts the appropriate solenoid

Overdrive contoll button is blinking on 200 f-350 7.2 powerstroke


It sound is if your ABS/Speed sensor is the culpret.  Try this fairly inexpensive repair before you bring it in for a Diagnostic, which can run anywhere from $89.95 & up.  Go to the local ford dealer in your area and ask them for the ABS Sensor in your rear axle differential. The base part number being 9E731. This part runs roughly for about $20.00+ and your own time to replace it.

I had a similar problem which turned out to be caused by a leaking vacuum line.

Your speed sensor in your trans. needs to be checked out sounds like its not working or not getting a good signal until its generating enough power and speed to start until it reaches 30 MPH. Check that out sometimes it could just be some dirt on it. It all makes sense the ABS light is on because its not reading the speed of the tires, and the AOD light is on because It has no idea when to shift into overdrive without knowing how fast its going. I sure Hope that Helps You Out, And Thanks, Bear001
