Hey guys, I'm new around here, looking for some help. I have a 2009 Ford Focus Mk2.5 Zetec s/s 1.8. Had it since November, there's about 62000 miles on the clock. Recently noticed a grinding/grating noise when braking heavily on low traction surfaces. It's not a normal ABS sound, I'm fairly confident what ABS activation sounds like. I thought at first it may be the ABS malfunctioning, but I've also noticed on a few occasions the same sound with a bit of wheel spin, but not every time. So it seems it's more associated with losing traction than just heavy braking. Here's a dash cam video where you can hear the sound: Any ideas/help with what it could be would be appreciated. Thanks,
Hi all, I own a 2013 fiesta ecoboost titanium x and was wondering how to turn the traction off? I looked in the manual which says to go through the settings but I couldn't find an option to turn it on or off. If anyone has any ideas please share. Regards, TheScoobyCollector
My dad and i had a discussion about this earlier - When it is icy what is best traction control off or on? I thought off as you don't want it to compensate for ice as it could put you in more danger, make you skid wheel spin etc My dad said if you have it on surely it will help you not skid or wheel spin? I've always read that it is best to have it off, whenever it's icy i turn it off i was just curios as to what everyone else though?!:) Thanks Jon
