    I took my oldsmobile in today to get scanned and it was my speed sensor. The shop replaced the front hub on my driver side and it took them about a hour to put in. The part wasn't that expensive. Last year i had the same problem but that time it was a wire that was coming from the hub i fixed it and it was all good. The best bet is to take it to a shop with OB-II scanner to find out witch side it is on and go from there. Good Luck.

Ur brain in the car needs to be reset if that does not work u might have to replace ur abs system u can take ur car to a local auto zone or advance auto and they can reset it and see if there is a error code with the light also some times the longer the light stays on or refuses to reset says there is a problem with u abs system

SOURCE: abs light stays on 2001 alero

My GMC Dealer said that the problem is caused by a short in the ignition/electrical system. (seems to be a problem for many). He also said that the ABS will NOT actually work while the light is on! All my dash warning lights, radio/clock, and sometimes even ignition(turning key) have problems. The car is drivable but not working correctly. Short term solution: turn key ON, wait 10-15 min, turn off for a few minutes to 'reset' and then try to turn car on. Worked for me yesterday. Good Luck!

My car has several lights on and im not sure why. I have 2001 olds alero with 125,000 miles on it. The service engine light and the anti- lock and abs lights come on and stay on here lately. any clues why?...


I'll try to answer these as asked.
1. check engine light is telling you that you have an emission control problem and needs to be scanned for codes.
2. The abs and traction control light are connected and when the abs sets a problem code it will turn both on , It also needs to be scanned for codes.
3. Having a tire that is a diffrent size or more worn than others will set the tire pressure lamp and it can be cleared by removing the fuse panel door on the side of the dash and holding the red button in with the key on engine off untill it flashes or beeps and goes out.

When I turn the steering wheel the low trac light


The steering wheel position, wheel speed sensors, and ABS systems are all used to provide traction control. You likely have a failure of one or more systems. Scan the ABS system and it will provide codes to help the diagnosis. Wheel speed sensors fail often, and it is likely one or more of these is contributing to the problem.

Anti Lock, No Traction and Service Engine Light on


The wheel speed sensors are in the wheel bearings, so they should be okay. There is a a technical service bulletin for issues with the wiring harness that sends the signal from the sensors...if the harness is damaged it will act like a faulty sensor.
