    02 Explorer 4x4 Advance trac lite stays on

    You really need to get the code pulled to find out which part of the adv-trac system is bad. My problem was the brake pressure sensor on the brake module under the hood. damn thing was $125! and another $90 for them to pull the code. Turns out there is not many shops that can pull ABS codes.

    Problem w/ AdvanceTrac

    I had the same message on mine and it turned out one of the wires on the ABS connector (under the hood) was not pushed all the way in the connector. I just cleaned the plug and connector disconnected the battery for 30 min and all is good since then. Worth a try.

    Shawn, I had similar issues and all the same codes and was frustruated and took it to the dealer to fix. The reflashed the PCM and put in a new throttle body. I was also told the Engine Failsafe Mode was V8 specific but some of the early 05 V6 models had that in their programming.

    Help with DIN connections on a 6Cd in-dash stereo?

    You can go to Best Buy and get the connector that plugs directly into the OEM harness. It has all the wires with the standard color codes on the new plug. I just bought one when I replaced my head unit and the plug was about $15-$20 a little pricey but there is no cutting and splicing into the...

    how to remove door panels

    When I replaced my speakers I did not remove the part around the handle first and broke one of the little lock cover clips/latches. grrrrrrrrr:mad: On the other three I removed the handle cover and was able to get the lock covers off without any damage.

    They dont "eat" the fluid. as the break pads wear the calipers extend out farther so the fluid "relocates" to the caliper. There is no need to bleed the system unless the fluid level is completely out of the fluid resevoir, and it is not if the brake light just comes on while braking. You can...

    Check your break fluid level, thats probably why your brake light comes on while braking and why you have to push down farther on the pedal to brake.

    They just reprogrammed the ABS system. There were no codes that I know of but there had to be something to lead them into reflashing it?

    AdvanceTrac Issues

    Mine is a 2005 and had a constant on Advtrac message. When I finally got aggrivated with it I took it in to the stealership and all they did was reflash the ABS module and that fixed it.
