Question about 2002 Lincoln LS

3 Answers

Hello, I took my 2002 Lincoln LS to the Ford dealer because the air bag light, ABS light & traction control light were on all at the same time, also the message center displayed "check advance track." they told me the airbag problem is a module in the driver's side seat belt air bag. The ABS & traction control problems are related to a bad wheel speed sensor on the left rear wheel. Parts & labor in excess of $1000.00. I chose not to have the work done. I don't know what they did but the air bag light has not come on since I got the car back. Now, I'm considering replacing the speed sensor myself. Can anyone tell me how to locate & replace this wheel speed sensor?

    Thank you for the solution eyecue, I have a couple questions, Do I need to remove the tire/wheel before looking for or replacing the wheel speed sensor? Also, If I choose to do this can I get this part from an auto parts store? ie; Auto Zone, Auto Palace, etc. or do I need to get it from the Ford dealer?

The speed sensor is found on the wheel hub. It is the only part which has wires connected to it. Usually you would see hoses for the brakes in that area.

For additional information, I have managed to get a video.

There are 4 of them. One on each wheel. Look for a cable that attaches to the axle hard case and has a bolt looking sensor that pokes through the hardware to a ring looking device on the axle. The problem is that you have to calibrate it with a feeler gauge to get the gap right. So before you remove the old one, get the feeler gauge out and see how close the head of the sensor is to the ring so you know how close to put the new one.

Traction control and ABS are parts of the same system. The airbag light may have come on for an intermittent problem. The wheel speed sensor is located at the wheel. You can follow its electrical wire to its location. There is the brake fluid hose and the speed sensor wire going to the wheel. The wire is more flexalbe.

Why is my Lincoln LS V8 2002 has the ABS and Traction Control light on?


The traction control works off the ABS system You will need a scan tool capable of reading ABS codes before you can further diagnose the problem If you are able to retrive the abs codes searrch on the internet for the trouble code Many times it is a wheel sensor or bad connection on the sensors .

2004 LINCOLN LS TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT FLASHING & ABS LIGHT ON & BRAKE LIGHT ON. DTC CODES B1342, C1730, C1998.


first check brake fluid level then you will have to test the wheel speed sensors that the codes refer to. when there is a sensor problem it will activate both the abs and traction control lights. the red brake light comes on when there is low fluid condition(leak),worn brakes that need servicing. also if there is a abs module problem it can set codes. you need to know what the codes mean this is a starting place to diagnoise.

My 2002 Lincoln LS v6 Lost Engine Power,Traction Control Light was flashing & ABS light Came on! ANY IDEA?


Had the same problem with my 2002 Lincoln LS, it was a bad wheel speed sensor. The right front wheel bearing had some play in it, so I had the hub assembly replaced. The hub assembly comes with a new wheel speed sensor attached. After I replaced the hub assmbly with sensor, the ABS and Traction Control lights went off. No problem since!

ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.
