On the 2009 Ford Escape, The B1342 is a fairly straight forward code pointing to a fault with the Electronic Brake Control Module (aka “ABS Module”). When this code sets alone, more times than not, the module has failed internally and will need to be replaced. Inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires before replacement. The module is located in the rear, driver’s side corner of the engine compartment.
