You don't need "reset computer" what you need is "diagnose and repair fault with systems monitored by the computer". Your ABS and traction lights coming on are most likely the same problem. Failed wheel speed sensors are a common cause of this, although several other things could be the problem. The airbag light will most likely not be related to the other lights at all (although it is possible that there is a circuit failure that is affecting all three). There could be a failure in any of the airbag circuits or seatbelt pre-tentioner circuits or any of the sensing circuits for this system.

NOTE: In the event of a collision, your airbag and seat belts WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY if this light is on. The Supplemental Resraint Systems should only be serviced by a trained professional to ensure your safety.

To BEGIN diagnosis, the computer network in your vehicle needs to be scanned for fault codes, which will lead you to the correct diagnosis and repair procedure.

I suggest scanned the PCM and ABS modules to know exactly what fault code is stored there; generrally, when ABS and TRAC warning lights turn on, means some problem in the speed wheel sensors, but we will need what specific codes is there to send you additional details in order to solve it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have 4 dash lights on - abs, brake, airbag and traction control as well as the speedo stopped working, the heated seats won't turn on-what might this be?


the ABS and traction light are on due to a failure with the speedometer. I SUSPECT A SEED SENSOR would be the culprit as if speed is not sensed from a wheel (RF / LF /RR / LR) the ABS module with be disabled and would lite the ABS and Brake light. the airbag and heated seats are on separate circuit. the air bag should be diagnosed with a handheld device ( go to advance auto or similar type parts store)n they will read the code.. post the code and I may be able to help ... also ask em to get the ABS / Brake codes a ell

Hi Ron,
Check to see if the speed sensor came off at either of the back wheels,That would turn on the ABS light,Which would then disable the traction control. The ABS will reset itself when it sees no problem.

Air bag light stays on


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

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.

you probably push air into the ABS unit when getting your lines replace but the Traction Control light might be on because the system might use the wheel speed sensor on the ABS unit to enable the Traction Control.......

Abs and traction light are on


you can try to reset the computer with a diagnostic machine but, it seems like the brakes were installed without resetting the abs sensors. if this sensor is not re connected, this will cause your light to come on.

How do you reset an air bag light in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE?


The airbag light staying on could be an indication that the abs computer ( located under passenger front seat ). may have gotten wet. These cars usually let water in from the front strut towers. The light staying on indicates a problem with the computer, possible things that could happed:
a: air bag DOES not deploy in an accident.
b: air bag does deploy for no reason whatsoever.

either of those could be bad.

best to have it inspected by a certified abs tech or the dealer
