Would this be a Ford Explorer about a 2002 vintage?

If I had opened my eyes even a little bit then I would have seen the info was already there. Sorry. The Advance Trac light will illuminate when you get into a situation that calls for it to activate and can't. I have come across this many times and have always repaired it with the replacement of the "electronic shift control module" which is located behind the glovebox and is easy to replace. The part is a Ford only availability. Replace it and happy motoring.
