    I have the exact problem with my grand am gt 2004. All of my dash lights are on they never turn off. My traction wont turn on at all. I dont know what to do about it.

    i have a 04 grand am gt and the abs trac and check eng light come on

    once a while when im driving but if i cycle the key on and off it will reset

    sometimes it will come back on again right away ans sometimes it will take a few days. I work at a chrysler dealer and asked my techs over there and they tell me that its a body control module or wheel speed sensors. Because GM has intergrated sensors i will have to replace both hub and bearings. Hopefuly it solves my problem if incase its a BCM

    Than i have to take it to a GM dealer. But ill keep you guys posted incase the hubs do the trick.

I had that problem.. fixed it and how its on again. Its that new. one of your HUB's are messed up, thwe ABS sensor for thos eare fully integreated. and its about 500 bucks to replace... Or you could drive without ABS or TRAC. and have no problems about getting into an accident because of those ******** features.. I hate them myself.

    it can be a number of things most likely would be a faulty wheel speed sensor. Check the wiring at wheels and see if you see anything obvious. Will need to scan abs system to pull code

I have a 2004 Oldsmobile Aleroand I would like to know what needs to be done to fix the service vehicle soon anti-lock and trac off light from coming on

First you'll need to take it someplace to get the computer checked for trouble codes. The codes will tell you or a mechanic what to test.
If the check engine light comes on, it will also turn on the other warning lights even if there is no problem with trac or ABS.

Service Vehicle soon trouble light comes on, along with ABS light and Trac Off light, but no diagnostic codes show up on diagnostic reader. How do you determine what is wrong?

If you are using an obd2 reader, make sure it has all the updates. If the check engine light is on, is should show up on reader. There is also a ABS light tester as well. It sounds like an error in the ABS/Trac cirucuits. It could be a bad pump or faulty module.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

Trac off light- Hi, mom has a 2004 Chevy Impala and just started it and noticed a light on the dash came on reading, "Trac off". Do you know what this means? The dealer is trying to get my 73yr old mom to...

hi Deborah.
this is all i could find out from the internet.
ABS and Trac OFF usually indicate a dirty or faulty ABS wheel sensor. You'll have to scan for the codes to see why the check engine light is on.
the abs and trac is the wheel speed sensor, you will probably have to replace the hub.
Have you already checked your owners manual for troubleshooting? If not, page 3-35 has the section about your "Trac Off" message.

"If there's a brakesystem problem that is specifically
related to tractioncontrol, the tractioncontrol
system will turn off and the warning light will come
on. If your brakes begin to overheat, the traction
controlsystem will turn off and the warning light will
come on until your brakes cool down...
If the tractioncontrolsystem warning light comes on
and stays on for an extended period of time when the
system is turned on, your vehicle needs service."

not sure if this helps you out but its all i could find out.
sorry if its of no help to you.
