ABS and Traction Control Fault after Replacing Battery

Post by arslan.hamid » Sat May 12, 2018 1:23 pm

Hi people,

I replaced my positive battery terminal connector (circuit breaker assembly) on Explorer 2012 XLT after it got corroded. After starting the car, I got ABS related fault lights such as parking brake, ABS and traction control. Using forscan, I got the code U3000-41AB checksum failure on ABS.

Tried to clear this using forscan but the error persists. The brakes work fine, ABS also engages fine.

Please guys help me out on how to fix this?

Double check your connections that you touched.

Update: Issue got solved after I performed a module reset and calibration on Forscan.
Thanks to the developers of Forscan!

This usually happens when the battery is disconnected before all the modules have gone to sleep. A lot of patience and learning is required when working on modern vehicles.Same thing when re connecting. Every day,s a school day.
