I am having ABS and Advance Trac problems. I read all the comments about it and noticed the normal braking is still active, but is this something I need to get look at anyway.

I have 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer with Advance Trac. The light for the Advance Trac comes on and the ABS light comes on. The lights normally comes on and then off after a few days, but not both are remaining on. Is this something minor or major? I am tired of looking at the light how can I make it go off. Please help. I want to sell it, but I want to fix this problem first.

The trac light will come on, as will the ABS light when there is a problem with the antilock brake system on the vehicle. This can be anything from a bad wheel speed sensor or hub, to a computer module or wiring issue.

I can't really give you an exact answer since I don't know the vehicle and haven't had it hooked up to a scanner to see what is going on. This will probably not be a cheap repair, though! There would be no way to get the lights to go off without fixing the problem correctly.

possible wheel speed sensor problem? when the traction control and/or abs comes on the abs will hit the brake for a second which will add load to the engine. Scan the abs

c1998 is a code for module calibration not complete. If you have erased codes (certain codes) the module will need to be calibrated.

c2777 and c2778 are for the sensor cluster. The computer sees a fault in the sensor cluster. There are some tests to do but the cluster is not a repairable item. If it has a bad part you have to replace the unit.

clear the codes and calibrate the module and see if codes return
