    As soon as I put the vehicle in drive, the ABS light, traction off light and service taction system lights all come on. Also, the check engine light has been on for quite some time, but the car seems to run fine.

I had the same problem. I took off the tires and look at the wires, and both of the wires to the hub were broke. 10 min and some tape and problem was fixed.

My Trac Off light came on when I had to use the spear to get to a gas station...maybe need to take it back and have them verify that they connected the sensor cable properly.(or didn't break some thing else(wire or sensor)) Also have them check the alignment...may be a little out.

My traction control, brake, and check engine light are all on. I also had a plug wire burned in half. I checked all the fuses and all were good plus changed wires. The light are still on and the dinger is...


The plug wire & the ABS should not be related in any way. Unless when the plug wire burned in half the spark that could no longer get to the plug jumped to the ABS module & fried it. Anyway I would replace all plug wires. Then remove the Negative or ground battery cable for 5 min. to reset ABS module. Then reconnect the battery cable & give it a try. if the trac. or brake lights come back on you most likely have a bad ABS module & that's a very costly fix. Good Luck.

AWD Disable light on 2001 Pontiac Aztec- how do I get if off?


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)

I have been having front end problems, I was told both wheel hubs are bad and 1 outer tie rod, also that sway bar bushings are bad. I have been driving as little as possible til I can get fixed but tonight...


Sounds like you may have a symptom known as overactive ABS. What happens is one of the wheel speed signals is dropping out at slow speeds. The ABS is fooled into thinking the wheel has stopped turning even though it has not and activates the ABS system.

This can be caused buy a bad wheel bearing, which it sounds like you are in need of anyways. Start with that and if the [problem persists than you will need to scan the ABS module to see what codes are present.

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.

2001 Mercury Grand Marquis brake and ABS dash lights on and off


The red brake light is the key here. That usually indicateds a hydraulic problem. Check you fluid level in master cylinder and see if it is low. Also the level indicator sensor there in the master cylinder maybe sticking or corrioded. If ABS sees the red brake light it will shut off and turn on the ABS light,also traction control would be disabled as well.

2003 Chevy Impala Service Traction Sytem show on Dash


I can't answer the question about the gas fumes, but I had the same problem last year with the "Service Traction Sysytem" message and the Trac and ABS lights coming on in my Impala. Mine turned out to be because of a bad wheel bearing, that was causing the ABS and traction system not to work. I'm not sure if you've experienced this, but another thing that would happen with mine was that I would go to brake and have a hard time depressing the brake pedal, almost like it was pushing back. That is the point when the Trac and ABS lights came on.

I can walk you through it, be sure it is your outer tie rod that is bad the inner tie rods go bad also. It's actually quite simple to replace. Jack up and secure car with safety stands, remove your tire. Remove cotter pin and the nut holding in onto your steering knuckle, Loosen lock nut on the inner tie rod shaft. Either rent or buy you a tie rod removal tool they are cheap, but autozone and many other stores have a tool loner service that is free. Remove the tie rod from the knuckle and hold inner shaft and rotate the outer rod end till it comes off. When you go back with the new one measure across the front ties on the front and on the rear side about the same place. Screw the new tie rod on till the fron and the back of the tires measure the same distance, that is zero toe. Most fwd cars drive great right there. Be sure you tighten everything properly and reinstall the cotter pin If this helps please vote fixya!
