New here, dash light question

2005 Escape 4x4, the ABS light is on and the 4WD lights blinks every few minutes. Any ideas.

Thanks

Re: New here, dash light question

You'd have to get the engine codes scanned to find out what the problem is exactly. I would say that it's probably a faulty ABS sensor, which may be trying to engage the 4wd system at times as the computer might sense a false loss of traction and not know what to do.

Ok thanks, I was also told it could be a dirty sensor. Guess I will find out for the first time how good the extended warranty is.
