Traction control light flashing symptoms
Drivers may notice electronic stability control activation during low speed maneuvers while turning and while towing a trailer. In addition to false electronic stability control activations, the ABS module may store trouble codes C1278, C1280, C1282, C1963 and turn on the ABS/ESC warning light. These false activations are caused by a software glitch. Do not replace any parts or perform any diagnostic work until you have updated the software.
The flash update can be performed by any Ford dealer or independent shop that’s equipped to perform flash updates. This software fix is NOT free. This is not a recall. Plan to pay between $150 to $225 for the update.
