2012 GT Service Advancetrac Message

Newbie here. I purchased a used 2012 GT about a month ago. I have had absolutely no problems with the car till yesterday, then the Traction Contol kicked off and the Service advancetrac message came on. Now the traction control and the advancetrac will not come back on. It's been really rainy and wet for the past week so I kind of wonder if a sensor got wet or something. Also the car has exactly 59992 miles on it. Should the 60000 mile warranty cover this or am I screwed? I searched the forums but I couldn't find my particular situation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

2012 GT Service Advancetrac Message

You now this happened me just the other day while I was in the drivethru, i turned it off than back on than it was fine, However if this isn't the case for you I did some research and found that its typically a faulty sensor behind 1 of the wheels. If anybody is reading this should I do any thing since the light whent out and hasn't come back on?

It's not going to be under warranty, 60k 5yr is drivetrain. So if you take it in be prepared to be bent over.

You might want to check the drivetrain warranty, but I'm 99% positive it's not covered.

A dealer should be able to accurately diagnose and fix it. If your Ford dealer is reasonably priced it won't cost you much more than an independent shop.

Well, I didn't have to bend over too far. 44 bucks to re-seat a sensor for the brakes in the floorboard. The technician said the computer logged an ABS sytem "event". Appreciate the input from you guys.
I wish there was some kind of troubleshooting guide for problems like this. Looks like I'm gonna have to learn a little modern mechanickin'.
