Any Ideas!!!

I have a 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid. Two weeks ago my abs light and and 4x4 light came on. Took it to get repaired and I had a bad tone ring so they replaced the halfshaft. It seemed to have fixed it however a week later both lights came back on. For a day or two the lights would go on and off then as I was backing out one day it made a loud pop. It then said my 4x4 was disabled and to get it serviced. The next day when I went to get it repaired both lights were off and after driving about half way there they came back on. The shop looked at it and they think it may be a bad sensor but they arent sure. They didnt have the part and I am currently driving it waiting on them to get the part in and the mechanic assured me it is safe to drive and I wont damage anything else. I just want to know if anyone else has experienced this problem. Or if anyone has any ideas because the loud pop has become more frequent and it is now making a noise while driving and a rubbing noise like the brakes are bad which they arent because I checked them. Does anyone have any ideas???

This is happening to my 2005 Escape with 89k - I have not seen or noticed any ill effects, so for the moment I will leave it be. What is the symptoms of a bad "tone ring" other than the ABS/4x4 sensor lights on the dashboard ?

You could get a real hard pedal and the abs could kick in on dry road and at low speed and normal braking situations

also abs light and flashing 4wd with some grinding in revere

  1. 2007 Ford Escape with nearly constant abs, flashing 4wd and occasional grinding in reverse (have no idea why) had it checked at local garage and error codes c1233 and U2023. Mechanic told me U codes had to be done at dealer. Replaced the ABS module about a year ago (this part was recalled in 2007 on earlier models and I asked ford if my car had the same module and they wouldnt tell me) Seems the problem takes a few years to surface so I saved that part and the bill waiting for the recal) based on the posts here sounds like the new problem Im experiencing is not uncommon. Does anyone have uodates to their issues? Do I have to go to the dealer for a ucode? Am I looking at a sensor? a tone ring? both? Any idea on cost at a dealer?

I just replaced the pass. tone ring on my Moms 2005 Escape.It is less then a hour job and tone ring from Ford was $6.70.The guy at the dealer said the rear tone rings don't fail often. Go to this site and you can check on recalls. Recall Notices| Ford, Lincoln & Mercury Owners | Official Ford Owner Site

My ABS light stays solid and my 4x4 light blinks every now and then but I hear a grinding-type noise sometimes when I turn my wheel while driving. Also, when I break and take a hard turn (both left and right) sometimes I will hear grinding or it feels like my breaks arent working like they will work then stop like they arent making a connection. I'm not sure if this is the ABS Tone Rings as well? Has anyone else experienced this???

More then likely its the tone ring. It's possible the ring is rubbing the abs sensor. There really close to begin with. Look under the front end at the tone rings...it should be obvious if there cracked.

Also your brakes will act up too. Our 06' did when we had cracked rings. I heard about it every day from my wife on how crappy her escape was driving.

When the tone ring on my 07 broke earlier this year, I didn't have any change in braking performance.

What I did: If you slide the tone ring in place with out the paper it will slip on/off and spin easy. I took small pieces of paper about an inch wide and 3 inches long. I test fitted them under the tone ring making it shorter until I had a snug fit without opening the gap at the break. Then slide it out of place clean the area the ring sits on and apply a small layer of RTV. I used red RTV and placed the paper on the RTV and then a layer on the paper. Slid the ring in place and let it dry for about 15 minutes while I cleaned up.
I went for a drive and the light never came on until the other side broke. It had the same repair.

Visual exam. It will be obvious if the ring has failed completely.
