Odd issue this morning - Trac Control coming on\off

35*, dry and clear skies. Roads perfect. Started my car and left this morning. As I leave my drive way and on to my neighborhood road the car starts to stutter and jerk. I look down to see my trac control light flashing (the car with squiggly lines). I let off the gas and it stops and I reapply throttle and it didn't do it again. I hope it was just cause it was cold and I left with out warming up the car

Any thoughts? A sign of a problem?
Running my Lund can tune right now.

It does that when it's engaging the track control also. Most people don't notice because they are too busy burning some tire. Lol. My guess is that you hit a bit of ice and it was trying to compensate. Mine has done that before.

Issues that come and go or failure of parts and requiring service?

issues that are near impossible to diagnose.

Advanctrac incident caught on Flight Data Recorder - Ford Mustang Forums

Link to another forum with a good read. idk what yours is but on mine I've had a couple of TC glitches and with the rarity of it I'm never even considering trying wtty.

You indicated 35 degrees temp, what type of tires are you running? If they are summer tires, at temps below 50 degrees, they are like skates as well.

38 pages but my initial reading seems to be spot on with what happened to me. I'll dig deeper
