hi there

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech

the only way to approach this is to have it scanned with compatable scan tool to retrieve the code as it could be anything the computer doesnt like .

since your reader does not support this, i would pop by a larger parts store as most will scan your car for free.

once you have the trouble code i can help you in the right direction of repairing your vehicle!

let me know how you make out!

Parts Store readers are much less capible than mine. What I need to know is what are the most likely problems? I am sure with the age and miles on it, plenty of thinks could benefit from service, so if I am wrong, the item may benefit from some service anyway.
Lincoln Mechanic: camerontech, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

sure no problem

please give me a moment and ill check what is the most common issues with this, other than the wheel bearings.

I owned an auto electical shop for 17 years and was an ASE certified auto technition and an ASE Master Truck Technition. Been working on vehicles most of my life. Just do not own the proper code reader for the AdvanceTrac system.
Lincoln Mechanic: camerontech, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

no problem

i enjoy talking with other techs. 1/2 my questions based are with other techs nightmares.

looking up avdance trac problems on these....
9/10 issues reported (other then speed sensors) are all the abs control module

It seems its the number one failed parts with the system

there are a few steering angle sensor issues but the majority are the abs module as the main culprit

I would recommend inspecting the connector for corrosion and connection issues and the powers and grounds.
but it looks like your going to be into a brake module
