Question about 2000 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Service Vehicle light + Anti-lock brake light + TRAC light: all on at once

Wife was driving 2000 Regal 3800 with only 45K miles on it.
She got in & started it up one moring and the 3 lights came on and have not gone out yet (1 week). Took it to a mechanic and they had NO code show up on their reader. They are stumped as am I. Had new brakes all around just 2 years or about 6,000 miles ago, all okay there.

Any suggestions please?

Tnx a bunch!

    I have the same problem but only when the road is wet. As soon as it is dry or I have parked in the garage and I believe the engine heat drys what ever got wet the lights go off.

My Service Vehicle Soon, Trac Off, and Anti-Lock lights all came on at once in my 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue, what does this mean?


Usually it means you have a bad wheel bearing, it has a speed sensor built into it. You will have to have it scanned to pinpoint the problem.

1999 Buick century anti lock signal and trac off displayed when traveling over 60 miles per hour


You will be best off bringing the car in for service. If the anti-lock signal comes on, it means that your ABS system has a fault and you do not have anti-lock brakes functioning. When the light comes on the car runs on your brakes alone, no anti-lock.

To check the codes and the ABS system, the car should really be serviced.

Good luck!!

Warning light on are trac off, anti-lock, brakes, service engine


You need to have the abs system scanned for codes. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor on one of wheels.

Anti lock light and so on , is on


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, ABS Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. I would take it to a service center you trust and let then come up with a solution. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in all of the systems.

2002 Buick Century anti-lock brake problems


i recently had this problem too, except i had all the lights on (ABS, service vehicle, trac-off, AND service engine) they are all easy to fix without spending more than 20-30$ for labour (depending how much your mechanic charges you) mine did it for free and he found out why the engine light is on afterwards too. so to fix all these lights (abs, trac-off, and service vehicle you MUST get another ABS cable (i went to a garage, they were towing a GM vehicle to the junk yard so i grabbed some scissors and cut BOTH abs cables on each side (good thing i did because one was bad) and braught them to my mechanic. the reason the lights come on is probably a defect or in my case my mechanic said it was salt buildup in the wires (on the drivers side) so he cut the wire off and rewired the new one and BOOM all the lights came off (service vehicle, abs, and trac-off) now for my service engine it says catalytic converter but im trying to put some fuel system cleaner to help it out i read somewhere that this is a defect of the car, so if you dont have that light yet, SELL your car ASAP for as much as you can get for it (after fixing the lights of course) and always google (car name+recalls) in the search bar to see what youre getting into, take care
