I have had that same exact problem but have recently had an even bigger issue with this. I first noticed this problem with 7000 miles on my vehicle lights came on, a slight pull to the right and I immediately called the dealership. I was told the same things as I have seen posted, your wheels were compensating for a slip. Then 5 thousand miles later, 3 times in the shop with tsb for lower control arms to be replaces, an anti squeak clip that squeaked to be replaced and then it really starts to happen. The autotrak light comes on with the other two sensors lit up, and the mustang pulls heavily to the right. Now on December 24, 2012 I had replaced the tire with the exact same size, similar tread pattern and all specs matching tire. I was told that it was the tire that was causing the issue. I was told the circumference was an inch in difference. I went to 4 tire dealerships and asked to check the circumference of my tires and all said that it was less the .1 in difference, that if you measure the tire completely around, it would end up being one inch but that is not a true way to measure this nor would it cause any slippage. Then the rental that ford has given me, a Lincoln has all wheel drive, a tire that is bald on the left front with a brand new tire on the right front. This actually gives a 2 inch difference in the tire size as my dealership has stated and should set off the sensor just like my mustang because this is an all wheel drive vehicle but yet it has not gone off. BTW, I did replace all 4 wheels Tuesday with a set of brand new tires at my expense and I ended up having the lights come back on, the car pulled heavily to the right and I wrecked the car on a bridge!!! So yes this is a definite safety issue and don't believe that when someone says on this forum that it is not anything that it may be just a slippage. If you are truly slipping you will notice a slight correction and yes the light will come on to help compensate, it is a great safety feature but in my case and it seems in others on this forums case, this is a huge safety issue. And the tire that I had originally replaced was on the left front so the car should not have pulled to the right. Does anyone have any suggestions on this?

The shop foreman said it had to do with tire tread. Some tires are lower then others.... It didn't start Doing it til around 16000 km and its at like 32000 km
I replaced all of my tires because I was told the one that was replaced on the left front was too small, exact same size tire just was .1 of an inch off on one spec. So I did and guess what, lights still came on and I ended up wrecking it because it would pull the car to the right very fierce. Check my other posts about this on this thread
