Brake fluid switch problem and traction disable lights come on. have check fluid and replaced brake fluid sensor and still have problem

It may be a wheel speed sensor at fault.
To be quite honest, you'd have to get it checked at the dealership or a workshop which has the correct scan tools.

Here's a link about traction control:

Ignition switch light comes on on panel of 1997 cadillac while it's running ...what's the problem?

it went into a drag. What ????? What Ignition light ??? You mean the starter was dragging from trying to start it to long . Drained the battery ? From the ignition light , i'm think your talking about the anti-theft system . Really can't make heads or tails out of what your trying to say here , Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop . Without test we'd only be guessing .

I had my air suspension removed and now have regular shocks and springs, when i turn the key to start car it will crank but dont turn over, the dash says check traction control, and some times fuel flow...

something is not right in the rear of the car where the work was done either to the abs sensor,or maybe wiring to the fuel pump,which are both in the back.check the work that was done.

Please help

You sound like you have a computer problem on your car, as all this stuff would not go bad at the same time, unless hit by lightning or you had a major electrical melt down. You can try to disconnect fuses for the different systems you do not need and see if it will start and run, starting with the security system fuses.

After that, I would probably look for a used computer and install it. It is located under the glovebox in the trunk and is pretty easy to change if you are up to it. They are not mounted in there very hard, and the biggest thing would be to find the same computer to verify that this is your problem. I have one for a 95 Eldorado and is probably the same, but I can't be positive on this. You might want to find out from a dealer. Most of the systems dhould be the same, but there could be some differences.

It would be best to take it to a dealer, but they would probably want to order a computer to check it out and charge you for it, whether it fixes it or not.

Like I mentioned, most of them computers are the same, and they do have a chip that can be changed that has the differences in your car programed into it. You could find a computer, change it out, then with the computer out, change the chips and try it again.

This is a pretty big gamble, but for that many things to go wrong at the same time, it would be my guess that is your problem.
