DSC, TPM, and brake lights on.

Need help! DSC flickered on off then on solid, followed immediately by the TPM and brake light (both yellow). Car pulls hard left if I let go of the wheel. 2006 E85. Any help would be much appreciated.

I would check the wheel speed sensors.

Dealer replaced steering column. NOT cheap. Problem is when I got the car back, the paddle shifters didn't work. When I hit the downshift paddle the horn blew! Cruise control light didn't come on and cruise didn't work. Immediately turned around right back to the dealer. Service advisor contacted the service tech (on the phone, had called out of work). Tech admitted he had broken a wire during steering column installation but "had fixed it" and it must have broken during my driving away from the dealer. Needless to say I was furious. Service advisor pretty much grovelled about the tech's incompetence. Assured me he would personally ensure it would be fixed and offered to have the car delivered to my home fifty miles away from the dealer.

Unfortunately, he will probably make that tech drive it to your house as punishment.

Personally, I would go back and pick up the car.

They had their normal driver bring me the car. But i did get my 3rd brakelight replaced (I had a clear one from Leatherneck Z to replace the red one) for free as a goodwill gesture
