Why is my abs ans ets light on What does it mean


The most probable cause for the ETS (Electronic Traction Control System) light is the ABS light. When there is a problem in the ABS, ETS is disabled.

The ETS uses ABS data to help control the ETS system. You will need to have the ABS computer scanned for codes.

This light usually comes on if you have a failed wheel speed sensor but these vehicles are common for the ABS module to fail causing the same problem. You can back probe the wires comming out of each wheel speed sensor with the wheel lifted in the air and check for ac voltage as you spin the wheel.

What ever sensor does not put out voltage needs to be replaced if they all seeem to work it is likely the ABS module. But before you replace any parts you would want to have the ABS module checked for codes at one of your local shops that has a high end scan tool that can access those codes.

Hope this helps and just 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.

ABS / ETS lamp on dishboard appear to my mercedes E320 96


Have your brake pads and rotors checked if you have worn pads this will activate the ABS Antilock Braking System light. The ETS Electronic Traction System uses this ABS to prevent skidding if the tires should lose traction.

ETS light stay on all the time.


ABS--BAS--ESP
The Electronic Traction System uses you ABS tu assist in stability

Most likely cause is the 'stop lamp switch'
It is a electric switch located on the brake pedal inside the car, about half way up on the brake pedal.
Pretty cheap too, I think the switch is only like $25 bucks.
2 connectors on the switch and then it turns out.
hope that helps

'ETS OFF' Light


the first thing that comes to mind is a wheel bearing/wheel speed sensor in the a.b.s. brake system. usually the abs and/or brake lite will come on also. maybe check fuses in cab and under hood just to be sure. make sure brake fluid is full. a diagnostic scanner that could access a.b.s. codes may be necessary to pinpooint problem.
