As Waldo explained above the fix is to reflash or replace the brake control module.

I am having this exact same issue. Can someone please help. I wanted to PM Cory with Ford. But I am unsure how to.I'm being g told they can't replicate it so there is nothing they can do. I know what I'm feeling and now researching it, its clearly not an unknown issue or fix.
I agree with you Stephanie that it is clearly not an unknown issue - My dealership told me they had never, ever heard of this before, and it would be around out of pocket $1200 (his estimate) to replace the brake module. We like the car, but with the number of problems we've had where the dealership has "never heard of that happening" (and finding a whole group of people online where that exact thing is happening) is disturbing and will probably mean this is the last Ford we own, particularly from this dealership.
If you do find a resolution, I'd like to know about it. Update this forum post with whatever news you find out.

This is what Waldo has written about this
"Tell your dealer to call the hotline and ask for ISM 10-08-001.
They have to call the Ford service hotline (not Ford Customer Service) and ask for the ISM (might help to mention "false traction control activation", I don't think it's something the dealer can look up themselves. The ISM clearly states that the dealer is authorized to make a repair without needing to duplicate the problem."

Hey guys hate to revive an old posting but my Flex 2009 just started doing the same thing. Just took it to the dealer same they cant reproduce it. Have any of you had the problem fixed. What did they do im willing to pay to fix it if anyone can point me the right direction. Is it the Break control Module?
