I'm just researching the traction control light and AWD Malfunction error right now. Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

We do and it hasn'

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll pass this info along to the Ford Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. What is the model/year of your Ford?

2005 Ford Freestyle Limited AWD

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Freestyle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I said, I am researching for more information to know if we WANT to work on it or just sell it. I can't believe it has this error after only driving through a pothole on Michigan's lovely roads.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, not really

What Customers are Saying:

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
