Cool Re: Error code U2023

Mine is 2008, same braking system. I believe it was 2009 when Ford separated the ABS from the HCU. I have also heard because 05-08 is VIN specific, the dealer has to re-program the replacement HCU to...

Re: Anyone else have brake issues pop up after getting pads replaced? (2008)

Yes had the same problems start about 5 months after replacing brakes/rotors at 96,000 miles. I won't drag you through the whole story but, after 2 stealership's incorrect HCU diagnosis, it turned...

Re: brake light on after go over a bump

I would consider cleaning and reattaching the ABS grounds, sounds suspect of a loose connection.
