    ABS/TRACTION CONTROL LIGHTS ARE ON IN MY 1999 DEVILLE WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE

  • Anonymous Feb 24, 2009

    abs/traction control light comes on at different times. I can drive for a week and it never comes on, then the next two days it comes on nearly everytime I start driving. I can come to a slow stop and the abs goes crazy with the brake pedal. Could it be the control moduel and where is it located? Thanks

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.

How do you put front brake pads on cadillac sedan deville 1996


Front brakes on all modern cars are disc brakes. The front brakes generally provide 80% of the stopping power, and so tend to wear faster than the rear. Replacing them - pads, rotors and calipers - is quite simple once you understand the process, and can save you a great deal of money. These instructions will include a full front brake replacement. Also, having a service manual for your vehicle will save your sanity, as well as time and money. If you only need pads, or pads and rotors, but not calipers, skip the steps for replacing calipers. Repeat the steps below for each side of the car as necessary.

The ABS, Traction Control and Brake Warning Lights came on in my 2003 Cadillac CTS. I took it to a mechinac who turned the rotors and replaced the pads. The lights came back on but the brakes seem perfect....


lights usaly come on when there is a system fault. check for a broken or chiped wheel speed sensor ring, or a damaged wheel speed sensor. try disconecting the negative battery terminal for a few seconds to reset lights
