ABS is a braking system that pulses your brakes on and off for you automatically. Traction control is controlled by your engine's computer. When your drive wheel begins to spin due to loss of traction, the "traction control", if turned on, prevents your drive wheel from spinning too fast, which could cause you to lose control. Anyway, to answer your question, to my knowledge there is no easy way to add this accessory to your car.

2007 Ford Fusion. ABS Light, Wrench light, and Traction Control light are all stuck on. What does this mean?

It means you have a Anti-lock brake problem an DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are set in the EBCM - electronic brake control module or could be a Transmission problem or the electronic throttle control problem . Having these code's checked would be a good first step . The dealer or someother qualified repair shop .

Sounds like you have a bad speed sensor on the ABS. Have the ABS scanned for codes. If you want to test this, unplug one of the speed sensors. The ABS light should come on and disable the traction control system. Then the transmission should work fine. If it does, diagnose the ABS/Traction control system.

Why is my traction and abs light on and making my car stale out in forward if I dont press on gas hard and make it rev up

How competent were the mechanics. If everything worked fine until the brakes were done, I would suspect that they either damaged a wiring harness for the wheel sensors or had them disconnected and did not reconnect them. Did the garage not notice this problem when the tested the car after doing the brakes? No quality mechanic would let a car go in this condition. Check the wiring on the rear of the car for the ABS sensor and the like.

On my 2007 ford fusion my abs, traction control, and emergency brake lights are on. What is the problem?

i would get the OBD codes read as could be anything from a loose connection to a fluid leak (or worse ) do the brakes operate ok as you don't want to risk a braking failure ,so i'd get the OBD done as soon as possible

Since my Ford Fusion already has ABS can an expert add traction control?

Two entirely different things. Can be done but not cheap. requires different front differential.

Today while driving the traction control light, the wrench light and the ABS light came on in my 2008 ford fusion, AWD, what will i need to do to fix this and aprox the cost?

easy you have either a faulty sensor on a wheel or the painted magnetic strip in the back of the bearing has been damaged or the cover the paint sits on has corroded away ,disconnect each sensor in turn and check for continuety first and if all ok then disconnect each one in turn with vehicle jacked up and spin wheel and using meter on lowest miliamp setting to see if you read a slight voltage on a fast spin of the wheel .

2008 ford escape abs and traction control light is on, if the car sets over night the traction control light and abs lite doesn't come on until a few minutes and after the car sits around awhile the...

2008 Escape has a terrible reputation for ABS light and traction control light being. All due to broken ABS tone ring cracked and out of position flopping on frt bearing. Go to local AutoZone store and they will scan this to find which wheel has the broken tone ring. The replacement ring is cheap in the $7 range. It is labor that will sicken you as this ring must be pressed on after the front half shaft is removed. Not a driveway job if you are considering DYI.

Traction control light on ,brake light on ,abs light on

If the brake light is on, check the fluid level immediately and add fluid if necessary.
After that, have the car's OBD-II computer scanned with a 'Brake Scan' tool for OBD-II. This will help to narrow down which wheel speed sensor is giving you trouble. It might be a broken wire, or a bad wheel speed sensor.

The wheel speed sensor sends information to the ABS side and the Traction Control side of the computer module for ABS and Traction Control.

The car will revert to standard braking and regular non braking transmission power distribution to the drive wheels when the ABS and Traction Control lights are both on.

Good luck on this repair.
