You have a problem with the abs an there is a code stored in the EBCM - electronic brake control module . It could be any number of thing's from a wheel speed sensor to a wiring problem or the control module or the modulation pump . As long as the light is on the ABS is deactivated . I would take it a qualified ASE certified repair shop that knows ABS systems
This may be possible but the procedures performed may not generate this condition.
The traction control compares wheel turns on all 4 wheels. The power should not be on when the Ignition is off. The sensors on the front wheels could be unplugged when reworking the Ball joints. Since the rear wheels are not turning, the Ignition is off, there would be no spinning wheels to compare revolutions and no power to do it.
The ABS is similar for the same reasons. The system should be off when the Ignition is off on the hoist. Now the Battery should have been disconnected to insure no false warnings were created when parts of the system were unplugged. This would have eliminated the radio presets and sometimes other settings like Garage door openers, seat settings, etc.
Some of the warnings will disappear after 35 Start-ups. You can get free scans from Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. Just make sure they have a Scanner which can read the Traction control, or ABS modules. Not all scanners perform these additional functions.
Really, the shop should have "completed" the repair by returning your vehicle to you without glowing warning lights. If the shop released your vehicle with defects in the ABS or Traction Control, it is something they should have checked out to protect themselves from Liability.
if the light is on there is codes some systems are not on the can bus network and require you too goo too that actuall computer in this case ABS module wicth also controls the traction control system and you will need a good scanner the 100 doller made in china ones wont do it take it too a shop they will probly get the info for a some fee it coul be one of the whel speed sensors or the abs module itself
hi hope i can help the traction control is controled by signals from the abs system if you lose a sensor imput the abs light will also come it looks like you have a sensor on the blink hope you find this helpful if so please give it a rating thanks pete
If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.
We were having this problem...have your wheel bearing checked out. There was a sensor in the drivers side wheel bearing...once we replaced it (because it was going out) the ABS and Traction Control warning lights stopped coming on.
