      hi there
      i am a new member here, i got a used 2005 mountaineer AWD V6 4.0 L wth the option of advance track, i got it 2 months ago.
      everything was working ok until about 1 month ago when i took my vehicle to a local maintenance shop, the mechanic ran a computer test on the vehicle & after that i got the "check advancetrac" on the message center, when i turn my car on i got message "advancetrac off" then after starting to move and after short period i got the message "check advancetrac" on the message center & the advtrac lamp always illuminated during driving. i had a problem also with the tire pressure sensors saying "tire pressure sensor fault" on the message center, i replaced the 4 tire pressure sensors & the problem of tire pressure sensor solved but i still have the problem of advancetrac!!
      the mechanic told me that he got the following code:
      c1998 (module calibration failure) & told me that ABS module need to be replaced!!
      my question is that: does the mechanic cause this fault? because it was working well before his computer test?
      do i have to repalce the ABS module? because it is expensive here in the country where i live!
      thanx in advance for any help or assistance

      You need to have the system recalibrated to get rid of that code. You will need a ford scanner or equivalent.

      thanx a lot for ur reply
      does that code mean that my ABS module & other parts are working well?? & the problem is just recalibration?
      i live in Saudi arabia, when i took my car to the dealer to re program it he told me that he couldn't do that because of an access code!! as he explained to me something like a password on the PCM!!
      where can i find this ford scanner??
