SOURCE: AdvTrac light remains on all the time and "check AdvTrac" message

You will have to retrieve and clear codes from VDM module with a scan tool. You may also have to calibrate it as well.

SOURCE: after replacing the left front wheel bearing on a 2003 ford focus, the abs and traction warning light stay on

The bearings on the wheels has to be installed one way only, the rotor ring is built into the bearing and if installed the wrong way round the sensor cant pick up the wheel speed causing the ligt to be switched on in the cluster. The diagnostic equipment should pick this up as a fault once the car has been driven, it will see the sensor when you do the diagnostic if the car is standing still but once the car is moving and no signal is send from that wheel it would register a fault into the memory of the PCM that you would be able to retrieve later.
There is a way for you to test the sensor yourself by using a multimeter set on volts, you jack the vehicle up at that wheel, install a vehicle stand to support the vehicle to be safe, disconect the wheel speed sensor and probe the two wires into the sensor, spin the wheel by hand and a small amount of current will be produced meaning the the sensor is working and the wheel bearing is installed the correct way, you can also do a continuaty test on the sensor by switching the multimeter onto ohms, but be very carefull, if this sensor has three wires you cant do the continuaty test because of the integrated circuit in the sensor, the three wire sensors opperate on a voltage from 5Volt and it would be destroyed by the multimeter opperating on 9Volt.
If the continuaty test passes and the bearing is installed the correct way, the most comon fault would be a break in the wiring leading to the PCM
Hope this will be helpfull.

SOURCE: my abs lights and advtrac lights came on

It means you have a fault in your vehicles antilock brake system. Having the light on will disable the abs system. Antilock/traction control keeps your wheels from locking up and provides you with a more controlled stop, such as in rain or snow. Take it in to a repair facility and have them scan the abs system for fault codes codes

SOURCE: our abs light advtrac light

You may have a bad wheel bearing--do you hear a growing noise that gets louder with speed? The wheel sensors on your wheels are sensitive to excess motion between the wheel hub and the wheel, as they have a small gap between the sensor and the tone ring on the axle. The speed sonsors are used by both the ABS and the traction control systems on your truck. You can check your bearings for failure by jacking up the car and trying to shake the wheel. If the wheel doesn't have noticeable play, the bearing may still be bad enough to cause the sensor to misread the speed. If you're not sure, have your mechanic check the wheel bearings. If you have more questions, please let us know.

What could be the problem when I hear grinding in the front end mostly when turning, Abs light is on, AWD lock light periodically flashes, and advtrac will not turn on?


possible a loose front wheel bearing or a failed front wheel bearing
the abs light sensor is probably touching the rotor
tack it back to the shop that did the job as there is a problem in the assembly of the unit.

How do I reset trac off abs light on my 03 chevy montecarlo ss. Changed the wheel bearing and sensor


Take it to a mechanic or buy a gizmo you plug into the message control wire by your lower steering wheel and you have to reset the computer. I am not sure the name of the out fit you use but it costs about sixty dollars from an auto store. My mechanic did it for me for forty dollars.

2005 ford explorer ABS, SES LIGHT, AND ADVTRAC LIGHT ON


The first thing to do is to have the ABS and engine computers scanned for trouble codes.
The problem with the check engine light could also turn on the ABS and traction control lights. Or it could be different issues.
The gas gauge being out of calibration could be the float in the gas tank or the gauge on the dash. I doubt that problem is related to the warning lights.

I had a front wheel bearing changed and the abs light and engine management light are lit up, is there a way to switch these off


Does your ABS work? The light being on would mean there are trouble codes stored. Possible a wheel sensor got misaligned or broke when the bearing work was done. Scan the computers and have the lights turned off properly by clearing the codes.

ABS/CHECK ADVTRAC/SKIDDING CAR LIGHTS GO ON


The abs sensors also control the traction control and 4 wheel drive actuators so if one of the sensors is faulty the traction control will be disabled and the drive system will be stuck in the mode set at time of failure be that 4x4 or 2wd
get the abs system repaired
