Cool Advance Track Problems

I have an '11 F150. The message center kept displaying the message "Service Advance Track". I took it to the dealer 3 times and they could not find any code history when they checked the computer (The message would display and then go out a couple seconds later and not store anything). They told me I would have to come back when the message was on. Finally on the third visit it came on and they were able to display 2 codes C1280 and C1963. The TSB 11-4-7 told them to reset the computer. That was 2 days ago and so far so good. Anyone else had this issue?

It appears to not be a new problem for some.



FORD:

2009-2010 F-150


This article supersedes TSB 11-01-06 to update the vehicle model years. ISSUE:

Some 2009-2010 F-150 vehicles may exhibit a condition where the Trac Control indicator is flashing or illuminated with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) C1278, C1280, C1282 and C1963 stored in the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) module. In addition, some customers may complain of intermittent nuisance activation of the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) during low speed turning maneuvers while towing a trailer only.
ACTION:

Reprogram the ABS module to the latest calibration using IDS release 71.02 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2011.1 DVD. Calibration files may also be obtained at Buy Motorcraft Parts Online | Official Motorcraft Auto Parts Site | FordParts.com.
WARRANTY STATUS:

Eligible Under Provisions Of New Vehicle Limited Warranty Coverage And Emissions Warranty Coverage
IMPORTANT: Warranty coverage limits/policies are not altered by a TSB. Warranty coverage limits are determined by the identified causal part.

My '12 Ecoboost did the same thing this summer while towing my camper. I shut it off and restarted and the code was clear. Dealer checked it and it didn't show up as a trouble code. It feels like the Advancetrac isn't working right since I feel quite a bit of sway while towing which I never noticed with my '10. I thought it was the cheap Good Year SRA's that came from factory where my '10 had the ATS's.
