2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 2.3L
Vehicle had brake service done by a Ford dealership which is detailed in this post:
Now, a few months later the vehicle's ABS light and traction control light are both coming on at seemingly random times. They will be on right after the vehicle is turned on and will go away after it is restarted (sometimes). When the lights are on, the vehicle doesn't feel right and the brakes are locked up.
After a couple days of this behavior, the "Low Tire Pressure" warning came up on the dash. I checked the tire pressure and could tell that one of the tires was extremely low even before using a pressure gauge. I don't have a pump at home, but I am curious... Could all the warning lights be due to the low pressure? Ford just did a brake job a few months ago. Is it safe to drive when the lights are off?
Got the vehicle to the a nearby tire shop. Had a nail in the tire. They plugged it and got the pressure right on all tires. Since then, no warning lights and no issues... I still don't trust it though 'cause why would the abs and traction control lights come on if the tire was just low?
