Question about 2007 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer
While driving, the car starting pulsating like the abs was activated, the traction control light was flashing at the same time, lasted for about 5-10 seconds before i regained control of the breaks. happened 2x within 10 minutes. very scary, had the breaks changed about a month ago. could it be related, is it safe to drive
I would take it to someone who has a code reader, or to a dealer, I would not trust the vehicle for very far or very fast if you did have to drive it to where it will be worked on. It may even be safer to have it put on a rollback wrecker and taken to the shop.I don't like to make suggestions of driving a vehicle when it pertains to the braking system. I hope I have been of some assistance.

The speed of the vehicle
The lateral, or sideways acceleration of the vehicle
The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. If the yaw rate error becomes too large, the EBCM attempts to correct the vehicle's yaw motion by applying differential braking to the appropriate wheel. The amount of differential braking applied to the left or right front wheel is based on both the yaw rate error and side slip rate error.
The VSES activations generally occur during aggressive driving, in turns or on bumpy roads without much use of the accelerator pedal. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal pulsations feel different than the ABS pedal pulsations. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation.
If you do not know about this , I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop that does !
