Traction control locks up my front passenger side tire. This happened on 12/27/16 and two other times in the past. Brakes were not applied at the time. The traction control system locked the brake. There a many complaint of this happening on the web in other Ford models as well. This could be dangerous. I was pulled left and went off the road. Ford will not respond as they can't reproduce the issue. Someone will get hurt!!! I was doing 20mph when it happened all 3 times.

Taurus starts from a full stop accelerating and at 40-45 mph the car jerks hard to the right, there is a grinding noise from drivers side wheel, and the traction control light comes on and can not be turned off. 101 K miles. Just replaced struts, tie rod ends, cv half shafts, and lower control arm/ball joint.
