You will have to have the codes checked it is most likely one of the wheel speed sensors after its fixed and the codes cleared the light should go off

How can i tell which wheel speed sensor is bad on my 1998 buick lesabre? also, will the light go out once a new one is installed


It may be something as simple as a broken wire.
Check the cable from the harness to the connection on the back of the hub.
I've fixed 4 cars that had "Service vehicle soon" "ABS " and"Traction" lights on by simply repairing the cable.
And yes the light goes off once repaired

I have a 98 Buick Lesabre Limited with 100,000 kilometers. Excellent car . The TRACTION CONTROL OFF light on the dash panel is coming on after driving a few kms, or on start up, and will not go out. If I...


The traction control system has detected a fault and turned itself off. The system uses sensors at the drive wheels to detect slippage and lock the differential and provide extra traction for acceleration. While the fault light is on, the system is not ready to provide this capability.
The ABS system uses many of the same components to keep the wheels from slipping while braking, and faults often cause both systems to quit.
There are a few things the average person can check for and possible repair, but much of these systems require specialized diagnostics to repair.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6003525-abs_traction_control_lights and let me know if you have questions.

Dash lights and headlights are flicker on my 2000 Buick LeSabre limited. Any solutions? Also the abs and traction control light won't go off.


Traction light is on because the abs is on.Traction control needs to have the abs system fully functioning to work.Most common cause of abs light is a wheel speed sensor.As for your lights flickering the alternator may be going out or you have a poor ground connection.Would check battery cables first to make sure they are tight.

Transmission Traction "Off" light stays lit with Traction button


The traction control system is controlled through the Anti-lock brake system. The way it works is if one of your wheels starts spinning the ABS applys the brake to that wheel to transfer power to the oppsite wheel that is getting traction. If your ABS is bad then your Traction control won't work. To check it I would find a parking lot on a wet day. In an open space mash in the gas. if you hear the ABS system kick in and you don't squall the tires then your good. My guess is you won't. What I would be worried about is will my ABS work. When checking the traction control is a good time to check the ABS. Acclerate to around 15 mph, then mash the brake as your live depended on it. If you hear a motor run and feel a vibration or grind in the brake peddal, then it works.

My 1998 Buick LeSabre has two indicator lights that are on


it is a warning that the computer has detected an error in the anti-lock braking system. it could be caused a number of different reasons, you could be low on brake fluid, or you could need new front or rear brake pads or need adjusted, there could be a loss of pressure in the system and the lines may need bled
