ABS/TRACTION CONTROL WARNING LIGHTS ON

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP ...
MY QUESTION NOW IS, SINCE I SINCERELY DON'T TRUST THAT SHOP AT ALL ANYMORE I'D RATHER TAKE IT SOME WHERE ELSE ....
THIS SHOP IS NOT A CADILLAC SPECIALIZED DEALER, I JUST HAD THEM DO THE REAR BRAKES OUT OF CONVENIENCE BECAUSE I WAS ALREADY THERE GETTING TIRES ......
WHERE IS THAT SENSOR LOCATED AT ??? IS THE CONNECTOR LOCATED BY THE REAR CALIPERS ???
HOW EXPENSIVE IS THIS GOING TO BE IF I WAS TO TAKE IT TO A CADILLAC DEALER ???
PLEASE HELP ... VERY MUCH APPRECIATED IT ...
THANKS !!!!!!

Rear of calipers, follow the wiring from the chassis to find it. If Cad finds the problem quickly then they are much cheaper than aftermarket shops that don' know what they are doing.

My traction & stability control warning keeps coming on, not all the time but occaisionally


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

I just had new tie rods and ball joints put on my 2002 lincoln continental and as I was leaving the shop i noticed the abs and traction control warning lights were on. I went back in and asked the tech and...


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.

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.


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.

Sounds like they may have left something disconnected like the ABS/ Traction control wheel sensor, make them fix it!!
