I just replaced the front differential on my 99 4.6.
When I started driving it I received an ABS and Traction Failure message.
I reseated one of the ABS sensors and the ABS fault went away but I still have the Traction message.
Does that message go away when the problem goes away or do I need to reset something?
If there is still a problem where should I look?

Try turning it off and on again:

1. Switch on ignition.
2. Press brake pedal 10 times within 5 seconds ofswitching the ignition on.
3. Check that the traction control light o9n theinstrument panel has stayed on.
4. The message centre will display Traction Failure and give an audible signal.
5. The traction control will be switched on automatically when the vehicle reaches 7 km/h.

Don't forget to call Lord Lucas while standing on your head facing SSW with a scone in one hand and failed light bulb in the other. If all else fails face NNE and call to Dame Edna while adjusting your nickers a bit higher. :roll:

Ya gotta love British engineering

I used a combination of both these methods. I pointed my truck towards England and summoned Lord Lucas. (which can only be done by flashing one head light and only the rear passenger side blinker) I also pressed the brake pedal 10 times and Voila!... No more problems.
Thank you for the help. 193,000 miles well on my way to 250,000.
Now if i can only get my head rest to go down! I could just start putting those links around my neck to make my neck grow like in Thailand!
