Taking mine to the dealership today for the same problem.. I also has the check brake system message come on.. Kinda sucks I only have 700 miles on the truck.. They told me it was probably just a censor.
If anyone has had this problem successfully repaired, will you please tell me what your dealer found?
I received the exact same messages on my 2012 SuperCrew: Service AutoTrac and Check Brake System. The messages toggle back and forth and the service lights are illuminated. These messages started on my fifth day of ownership at approx 278 miles. The messages appear upon starting the truck after performing 3-5 point manuevers into parking spaces before shutting off the vehicle. In other words, it goes like this: Maneuver into parking space, turn off truck, walk into preschool to pick up kids, start truck, receive messages. Then, drive home with messages, shut off truck, start truck the next morning, messages are gone and no service lights are illuminated. Begin again. This has been on-going for four days. Though, today's experience was at the grocery store instead of the preschool.
I have an appointment this coming Monday and I fear the dealer will say that he can't replicate the problem.
Any information you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you.
Thank you zx12-iowa. I hope I have the same repair success as you. At this point, I've read several posts about this (some were in other threads). Thus, I hope it's a known problem at Ford and I won't have to convince them that there is something wrong. Anything that is intermittent is always a pain in the rear....the old, "We couldn't replicate the problem" excuse.
Mine came on this evening while leaving work. Made a sharp left, then right turn. Dropped by the store to get something, and when I cranked the truck back up, it was gone. Gonna try to duplicate the turn tomorrow.
