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

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:

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.
