2015 Ford Escape - ABS and AWD issue

my abs light came on, then my hill assist then 4 wheel drive disabled. Now it pauses when I take off and makes a noise in the right left wheel

I don’t know what “right left” means… But…That is a hint for you to take it to a mechanic to determine the problem ASAP. Failed wheel bearing I’d guess based on…

Hill assist and AWD will be disabled of an ABS sensor fails.


Wheel bearing ass’y on many cars these days also contains the ABS wheel speed sensor. So the advice above to ask your shop to check for faulty wheel bearing seems spot on. If that’s the problem the other issues will resolve by themselves once that’s fixed.
