Ok

the very first thing that needs done is to have the ABS system scanned for fault codes. The RSC, ABS and TRACTION CONTROL all work together and a fault with one will trigger all of those warnings. The ABS module will have fault codes stored inside and will lead you to the problem

Is that an expensive process

to do a scan? all shops charge different fees, at my shop it is 29.99

What's the worst case scenario

the worst case scenario for the repair would be a new abs module. the most likely cause of the lights, a bad wheel speed sensor, which is not very expensive to fix

Sheesh that's steep

thats worst case. remember. plus thats an oem ford part. there are cheaper aftermarket ones

Ask Your Own Mercury Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Could that be the cause of the squeaking

thats a hard question to answer without me being there, usually the squeaking is from the brake pad warning clip letting you know the brake pads are wearing down to the point of needing replacing

The machanic said the brakes are good but they still squeak

then he needs to remove the pads and make sure the anti-rattle clips are not bent
