on 12/7/01 my abs light came on and the trac off light started blinking. i took it into the inver grove ford, mn and the diagnosis was broken wheel sensor and had to replace the ecu. that cost us $1600.00. then on 12/8/02, the 2 lights came on again. i called ford very upset and was told that there is only a 12 month/12,000 miles warranty on the part. after another diagnostic test, it was determined the ecu again went out. ford offered to pay $500.00 of the $1147.00 estimate, but it infuriates me that automobile companies can get away with this type of "highway robbery" and only warranty such an expensive piece for a short period of time. it is now a safety issue, because my anti-lock brakes do not work! what am i to do?

"larry" dealer service rep claims they do not bleed brakes during replacement. "larry" also indicated that abs not working is typical in the first 1,500 miles of a brake pad replacement.*ak

after rain or heavy fog we experienced many electrical issues on our 01 expedition incl. horn not working normal,front & rear wipers not working or coming on by themselves,door locks locking/unlocking while driving, interior & exterior lights not working,alarm system going off while suv was being driven,fan blower on after suv was turned off, radio working intermittently, etc. the latest occurred 1/16/08 after heavy rains the prior night. suv wouldn't start in the morning and had to be jumped. it was driven that day with only issue being interior lights coming on themselves. on 1/17/08 suv wouldn't turn over and again was jumped. there was clicking noise from engine compartment that seemed to be coming from kelsey hayes black box. we immediately took suv to dealership and asked for tech to witness issue. tech confirmed noise coming from the k-h abs module, said problem was probably due to windshield leak into fuse box & gem module which was sending current to abs module and also causing interior lights to turn on/off by themselves. on 1/18/08 dealership said tech did pressure test on windshield and it leaked and needed to be resealed. fuse box and gem module would also need replaced. since problems were caused by water leak ford ext.warranty won't cover repairs. i spoke to srv mgr,who said he would call zone mgr.and get back to me. i called ford customer relations (crc) to document issues. called dealership on 1/21/08 and srv. mgr. said zone mgr. said nothing could be done to resolve situation and we were responsible for repairs. due to ongoing electric issues with suv we fear other safety features may malfunction compromising our safety. ford issued ssm 15773 on 4/05/02 to dealerships addressing unusual electrical issues after rain or snow resulting from a windshield water leak. the ssm included actions to be taken in that situation. our vehicle was back to dealership many times after release of ssm for electrical issues and ssm work was never done. *tr

driver first noticed the smell of burning brakes when coming to a stop after exiting the highway, all at low speeds (speed limit was 35mph or less). at the next intersection, driver noticed white smoke coming from right front wheel. driver got out to inspect the wheel, and noticed that the right front brake caliper and brake rotor were extremely hot and smoke and flames were coming from them. other three wheels were cool (normal). there were no warning lights, etc. turned off car, back on, in the hope of e.g. resetting the abs controller -- no changes. brakes were so hot that driver decided to drive some nearby frontage roads at low speeds, without using the brakes, in an attempt to cool the right front brake. made little difference. eventually parked the vehicle (braking continued to be impaired), came back around 1 hour later, brake had cooled down, was able to drive away. similar instance recurred on 2012-12-18 -- again, right front brake, this time in city driving, rotor was glowing orange (not yet on fire) on a cold night when driver stopped to look at it and park the vehicle. this is of course a very dangerous situation, and could lead to loss of life due to front brake failure. driver is aware that there is a recall ( 07e105000) associated with this year of the vehicle. ford claims that this particular vin is not affected by this recall. however, driver (who is experienced with brake systems) feels that these two events are very suggestive of a failure in the brake system to return fluid from the caliper, leading to excessive pressure in the caliper, leading to these problems. driver has been unable to get information from ford or continental (oem manufacturer) that would unambiguously show that the abs and brake modules in this particular vehicle are free from defects and are not subject to this recall. ford should fix this! *tr
