Question about 2003 Chevrolet Venture Passanger

ABS Light goes on, on the Driver Information Center (DIC)

Greetings,

Our ABS Brakes do not work and I would like to fix them before the snow falls. Would it be possible to fix them without the $200 diagnostic tool.

What should I look for in a general inspection?

Regards,

Tom

You probably have corrosion problem in your wiring harness, usually right in behind the connectors. I have had this problem so many times, every time they scanned it it was "oh you need a new wheel bearing." ********! Each and every time it was a corrosion problem.

Check all the speed sensors on your tires, most likely one of the wires will be stretched or broken, if not then you should be able to take to a shop and they can scan it ($30-$60) and tell you which. but you can usually tell with visual inspection.

What is wrong when it shows parking brake fault


What make , model an year vehicle ? What do you mean ? The red brake light symbol is lit on the dash or you have a message on the DIC - driver information center saying parking brake fault ! If the light that comes on when you set the parking brake is what your talking about ., This light also comes on when the brake master cylinder is low on brake fluid ! Could need brakes or have a leak in the hydraulic system. The light could also be on at the same time as the ABS light ,which could be a whole other problem .

ABS + ESP lights staying on dashboard


wow no year car, now that is a challenge , no?
abs is first.
first- first are brakes.
abs stuck on key on and running full time right?
so check brakes for damage or worn out.
brake fluid level not falling? look yet? look when checking oil every time.
abs can not work on cars with bad brakes, (its not god like)
then check for ABS sensor damage and its wires. under car.
then scan the ABS. got errors, sure you do.
but what? you didnt scan it first.
or read the manual> RTM?
its only 4 bucks to read it.

1999 Pontiac Montana DIC is dead. Got one from junk yard and get only "--" for data. Any help? Do these have to be factory repaired?


You can try performing a diagnostic self-test of the DIC.

In order to perform the diagnostic self-test and reset the driver information display, simultaneously press the following buttons for at least 2 seconds :

MODE
ENGLISH/METRIC
The reset is acknowledged with the display showing all segments ON for 1 second . You may only reset the following modes. The reset affects all 3 of these modes simultaneously:

AVG ECON
FUEL USED
AVG SPEED

If all of the segments light as described above, but the same symptoms are still present follow these instructions:

Symptom: Driver Information Center (DIC) Always Displays Dashes

1. Check for a poor connection or an open in circuit 800 (Tan wire) between the DIC connector terminal 15 and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) connector C1 terminal 15.
2. If a problem is found with the circuit in step 1, repair the circuit and retest. Otherwise continue to step 3.
3. Replace the DIC and retest

The park assist service light comes on when i start the vehicle. i do not have an owners manual to reference.


{: ) The driver information center (DIC) displays SERVICE PARK ASSIST when the object alarm module detects a malfunction in the parking assist system and the system is disabled. The DIC also displays SERVICE PARK ASSIST when a loss of communication occurs with the object alarm module. Usually this is caused by faulty components or wirings. Better visit your dealer if still under warranty, for one park assist sensor only costs too much. If your bumper had been knocked off or had previous repairs outside the dealership, that's another thing.
The PARK ASSIST OFF message is displayed in the DIC when the parking assist system is disabled due to conditions that disable or inhibit the system. The object alarm module requests the DIC display PARK ASSIST OFF when it detects one of the following conditions:
• The parking assist system is manually disabled using the driver information center (DIC). • An object is attached to the rear of the vehicle, such as a trailer, bicycle rack, trailer hitch receiver, or tow bar. • The object alarm sensors are covered by snow, mud, dirt, slush, or ice. • The vehicle bumper is damaged, • Excessive paint thickness on a replacement object alarm sensor. • The object alarm sensors are disrupted by vibrations, like those caused by a large nearby vehicle or from heavy equipment such as a jackhammer.

My 2008 Mustang V6 will not run right when it's snowing. If the snow is falling from the sky, My engine will stumble and kick and the engine and a wrench light will come on, than the RPM's will start...


Did you get the codes when the wrench came on

You may be spinning in the snow and the ABS is being
activated, in a less than desirable way

I wish I could turn mine off in the Lincoln LS
on a bad snowy day.
That ford abs system is useless in winter
You can't even use the vehicle, it slams on the rear
brakes,then starts to cut cylinders.

I want to go back to the 1960's

My ABS light came on, what does that mean?


No need to worry, If you need to wait a while to get it fixed it won't make your van unsafe to drive. What more than likely happened is one of your ABS wheel sensors quit working on you. If you know someone with a Snap On Scanner with the ABS reader cartrage, you can find out wich one is not working. Untill then, you can safely drive, just keep in mind if you do slam on your brakes in the snow or ice, they will lock. It would be like driving an older vehicle without ABS. Anyway, no harm will come to you or your van because of the light on.
Hope this helps!
