I believe it's somewhere on the rear axle.

Mine failed in my 2014 and the dealership said they had to replace a module or sensor on the rear axle.

Don't know if it's BS or not, I didn't fix it.

It is part of the ABS module. This is one reason why when you install the M-2353-CA module, you no longer have access to those features. It also takes inputs from the PCM, and steering rack. Also input from yaw and roll sensors and the wheels speed sensors.

What they replaced on Ish's axle was likely a wheel speed sensor. If one is bad, the whole system will function improperly.

Yes... abs, traction control and stability control all failed at once.

Have someone with a good scanner, such as an actual ford scan tool, or a recently updated solus, check to make sure that you have data coming through from the rear wheel speed sensors.

The physical location of the ABS module is that it attaches to the abs pump in the front passenger side of the engine bay, in case you were wondering.

the abs traction control / advancetrac - module will be here.

btw procharger is being installed now...




Heres a How too if you need to unplug it and want to try to reset it.


With the engine running, cut the wheel all the way hard left and turn the car off and remove key. Reach into the wheel well, and find the speed sensor cable(there's only one wire, and one hose). Then, follow it back to where it goes behind the fender liner. just on the other side of the fender liner, there's a plug/connector. Thats the one you are looking for.

Maybe unplug it and plug it back on or see if it came loose.

If anyone wanted to run hard on a track day and not want to have the computer get involved then this would be the route to take but just be sure to secure the cable so that it doesn't break off.

I do not recommend disabling the ABS in this car for a track day. Buggy as it is, when it works, it is so good that we get hit by a power to weight penalty for using it. Most people will not have a problem with it reactivating advancetrac or triggering ice mode, unless you are fast on corner entry and exit.
