So left for work this morning, roads were a bit slushy from yesterdays storm, and headed up a hill maybe 1/4 mile the abs kicked on due to slipping, nothing aggressive, however a few seconds later the "Advancetrack Off/Service Advancetrac" warning came on, and instantly I could feel the car get very squirrely, like it just wanted to whip around. A couple seconds later the ABS light came on. Both came/stayed on, at the 1 mile mark I shut the car down and restarted it, they stayed on, so I turned around and parked it, very squirrely, almost like a rear brake was sticking.

This said, the car has a brand new Powerstop drilled/slotted rotors, calipers/brackets/pads setup on all 4 wheels, plus brand new rear Moog wheel bearings, only a couple hundred miles since this was done, however the car had not presented any issues until now.

I will attempt to scan it tonight, (Forscan and an old Auto Enginuity) however from what I've read these cars are NOT easy to read the ABS module.

So before I start by throwing parts at it, (I suspect rear ABS sensor) any other things to check? Voltage was reading 14.2 and the power steering was fine, no issues there so I don't suspect the rack.

Thanks in advance.

Is your key programmed as ( mykey)? Guessing that might have something to do with it.
I didn't think they had MyKey until 2013/Gen2 on the Fusion, either way the key is programmed, It would cause a PATS security lockout not pop Advancetrac/ABS.

So followup:

It was the e-brake cable, the passenger side was totally locked up, had to pull the clip and pry it up to get the cable off. Of course it was 0°F out so sounds like typical water in the line somewhere. Ordered a new cable from NAPA for under $40 and in the meantime I zip tied the e-brake cable from that side to the LCA. The Advancetrac and ABS lights were off before I got out of the driveway.

Not looking forward to trying to jack this sucker up enough to get under it to replace that sucker.

Mykey has nothing....NOTHING to do with ABS/Advancetrac. PATS and Mykey are completely separate systems.
