Hi! Im having problems with My 2009 ford escape V6 4wd, ABS and Traction control lights are on, its showing the code b1342 faulty abs module.
I did some tinkering and found out that the abs light did not come in as long as i didnt fully release the brake pedal on start up. From there i dug deepr, i could get ABS to work normally if i disconnected/cut the cruise control trigger wires (the ones located on the brake pedal switch) the switch has 4 wires coming off it, i cut the middle two. Brake lights and shift lock solenoid are working fine, but cruise control is out.
I Tested abs by braking hard on a gravel road and it seemed to work as it should with pulsations felt on the pedal.
Now, i want to know if it this is a permanent or just a "band-aid" type of fix, is it safe to drive it like this and if there is a way to have back cruise control as i do alot of highway driving?
I reconnected the cruise control wire after i tested ABS as im not sure if driving it like that would messing things up more.
