SOURCE: Service Active Handling, ABS and Traction Control Lights on

I have had exactly the same problem on and off for 3 years now - and just solved it last week thanks to another computer site. Remove and disassemble both grounds from the top of both the left and right frame rails adjacent to the front corners of the engine block. Completely clean the green corrosion from the internal parts with fine sandpaper and add dielectric grease then re-assemble. Clean the mounting bolt and frame hole while you're at it. Sounds time consuming and difficult, but it ain't. No more than 45 minutes combined. I am a technical airhead so if I can do it so can you. What clued me in was the problem always occurred around wet or humid weather. Also, the clock would always lose time overnite. That has ceased also. Good luck. Anyone know why my left headlite, when deployed, vibrates and shimmys??? Sully ptsully@roadrunner.com

SOURCE: my 2002 impala's service traction control light

Traction control only works when one wheel is spinning faster than the other it trys to even them out so it wont spin...sometimes if one of the wheels come off the ground in an uneven area or if you take a turn too fast and one wheel turns when the other one dont it is designed to operate.
I would remove all wheels and check the braking system...Is it 4 wheel disc or rear drum ?
If it has rear drums you could have a wheel cylinder leak that will sometimes lock the wheel because of fluid contamination....This would cause both lights to come on...If you find no problems
sometimes the abs sensor builds up fragments on the magnet and makes the light come on...
or if the abs sensor is not close enough to the exciter ring it will make the light come on because it will be out of adjustment.....all you do is press the sensor inward until it barely touches the ring and it will adjust itself....You can sometimes clean the magnet if it is contaminated and make the light go off ( only after you reach 6 to 15 mph. it will go off ).If it dont go off you have to buy a sensor.
Also make sure all tires have same amount and plenty of air to keep vehicle in balance/level.

Why did ABS/traction ctl lights come on same time?


"Why did ABS/traction control lights come on same time?" They came on simultaneously because a component needed to operate both systems has failed. When these warnings appear it is normal for both systems to be shut down so you have no anti lock brake system in operation (to prevent you locking your wheels up in heavy braking) and no traction control either.

You need to have the system scanned with a scan tool capable of reading the fault codes for those systems. That will provide a guide to assist in diagnosis of the cause. It may just be a wheel speed sensor that has failed and needs to be replaced which is a common repair, a wiring fault or something more significant.

Service brake assist


It sounds like a sensor to me. Call your local auto-parts store to see if they can narrow it down. Most of them now days have a computer that will take you in the right direction.

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

Warning lights


You need to have your brakes inspected by a professional. The lights indicate that ABS and traction control are not working...although brakes will work without these features, a humming noise can indicate more problems to come.
