Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The message or light you see coming on indicates that the 4wd/awd computer has detected a fault with one of the awd components.This can be a faulty sensor or solenoid or actuator at fault.It may also be a mechanical fault in one of the gear boxes.Most of the time it is an electrical fault with a sensor or actuator needing replaced.

What has to be done from here is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a fully compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your model that can read all computers to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.

The ford shop/dealer will usually charge about an hour to diagnose it or around $100 in most cases.The repair cost will vary all depending on what is found at fault ranging anywhere from $200 to over $500.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
