Question about 2002 Ford Crown Victoria
As I braked for an intersection, I suddenly realized I wasn't slowing down and I felt like I was sliding through the intersection. It didn't feel like I was driving but rather like the car had accelerated on its own. I put my foot down on the ABS brakes again, it felt 'soft', and the car immediately fish-tailed and I had no control over the car. Somehow, I got the car around the corner and it eventually rolled to a stop on its own. I would have had a major collision if this had happened on a highway. (The car acted perfectly normal after this episode and I was able to drive it home without further incidents. Both my husband and our mechanic tried to duplicate what happened and the car did not do this again. The mechanic did all the electronic diagnostics on the car in the shop and found nothing.) PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ME? I'M AFRAID TO DRIVE THIS CAR AGAIN.

sounds like your abs feature is in-operative(that's the one that won't allow the wheels to lock-up when the brake is applied in an emergency)the abs system should pulse your brakes during an emergency application of pressure on the pedal,i'd get to a dealer immediately (and i mean don't go anywhere else until this problem is corrected)

Sounds as if you have a false activation of the ABS system.
If the light does not come on until you are driving then the ABS module is probably seeing a difference in wheel speed from side to side. It could be caused by different size tires,are all your tires the same size and brand? It could be caused by one tire having low tire pressure. It could also be one of the sensor rings esp. on the front has maybe cracked and slipped out of place causing the air gap between the sensor and the ring to be larger than it is suppose to be.The gap between sensor and ring is usually 0.045 of an inch sometimes the ring which is pressed onto the outer CV joint will crack and the ring will slid up the joint slightly away from the sensor.This will decrease the amplitude of the sensor signal and ABS interputs this as a wheel trying to slip or lock up and activates the ABS.When ABS activates it will make a loud pulsing type sound and it will almost feel like it is not going to stop.

I have the same car. So far no problems with the Transmision. I had the Trans oil change out every 60 K
Sure sounds like you need to get the Transmision checked. Is the fault light on. I have invested ina fault code reader sure is worth it.
Good luck. Vilmos

you need a new mechanic. your mechanic should be able to troubleshoot your vehicle and not just replace parts. did he give you a redit for not fixing the problem

I won't go into a long technical explanation of how todays high tech vehicles work.
You want to know what to do.
You can not fix this yourself. Period.
You need to take the Taurus to a repair shop. You do not need to go to the dealer
They will charge you a diagnostic fee to scan your vehicle,then quote a price to repair
