Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

has someone turned the air suspension off for a recent repair?

Do you have a scan tool to show what codes are stored?

Today mechanic may install front pads, rear brakes, rotors,new set of tires, oil and filter change & air filter

Those repairs are not going to address the warning messages the lights you have on. Do you want me to diagnose this with the current info you have given me?

Diagnose please!!
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

The air suspension off, that may be as simple as the air switch turned off. Normally you only get this warning when the switch is off or when there is a wiring concern to it. On this model normally the advance trac warning comes up for a concern with the ABS module or a wheel speed sensor. A diagnostic tool would help you most in these cases to retrieve the codes which are stored.

Please make sure to rate my answer prior to logging off, as this is how I get credit for helping you. If you have not yet received 5 star excellent service from me. Please follow up so you get everything from me that you expected from the deposit you have already paid, which I get nothing of till you rate me. Rating does not close the post nor prevent replying at a later date.

Thanks Moose

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
