Dealer labor will be about 88-105 bucks an hr plus a diagnosis charge prob about 40 to 65 bucks, at least it is at my Chevy dealership, you can get a hand held code reader at auto zone which you plug into the cars computer and it will tell you what caused the light to come on, I think those are 30 or 40 bucks

I have a 99 corvette and I need the ABS, Traction system and Active handling serviced. Warning light for these things are coming on and staying on. What can be the problem? I think it's just the sensor...


I took my 99 vette to the dealer whith the same problem and they replace the rack and pinion because the black wire on top the rack was damaged.

I have 2003 land rover discovery and the abs light just cam on. also a ct light came on... whats the problem? plz help


Ok, you either have an expensive problem, or a very cheap one. And it all depends upon the number of lights on the dash.
If you have ABS and TC showing, then you may just have a diff-lock switch fault (and an intermittent H shaped amber light also which is the diff-lock indicator). This is a software issue with the SLABS ECU and is showing that due to diff-lock the ABS and TC are in a lower response setting. Later trucks don't have this problem (03 model year onwards) as the software was updated. The diff lock switch is about £12, and it's a bugger of a job. It can be done from underneath the vehicle (did mine this way) or from the cabin, and the switch is p/no PRC2911, and just unscrews. It's located just behind the diff-lock stud above where the front prop fits.
Your options are thus:
1) Remove the front prop. Work blind and try and change it by feel alone. Helps if you can clean the area off before too, don't want any rubbish falling in the box! Unplug & Undo the switch, IIRC it's a 12mm head, and a stubby spanner is the tool for the job. Remove, swap the lower nut from the old switch to the new one (important for the length) and put back in. Don't do up too tight, or it may shear off (as my friend did 2 days after I did mine! He kept tightening it...) Pop the connections on and the front prop and the fault should go away. You could also just disconnect the switch if you want. IIRC open circuit is no-diff lock anyway, but if that's not correct then make up a link with some spade connectors and link it out then.
2) Remove the centre console, drill the rivets and attack from above. Same tools needed, just you can see what you're doing.
I favoured Option 1. YMMV!

If however you have ABS, TC and Hill Descent (little picture of a truck going downhill) then you sadly have an ABS issue which suggests either Wheel Bearing, ABS Sensor Fault, or Shuttle valve. Best to get it to a dealer and on the computer for them to diagnose what exactly is wrong.

Can't find in manual "ASC' trouble


ASC is short for "automatic stability control" u will need to have the ABS/Traction control system tested by the dealer for a possiable fault code.

My ABS light is coming on what does that mean?


1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.



As for the ABS light, that means your antilock brake system has detected an issue such as a block sensor, or a faulty relay, etc.. when this light is on, it means that your abs may not engage when it should, or may engage when it shouldn't.

Diff lock and abs lights


Check to see if the plugs on the wheels are plugged in check that the pins are all the way into socket, that your ABS problem, next check to see if you knocked loose the wire on the differential most likely cause and be sure to top off power steering fluid. Check that the fluid level is ok on the Diff. if you need more help let me know and thanks for using Fix-ya and rate if this was helpful.

When you replaced the ABS sensor on the hub, did you clean and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring on the hub. There was a recall on the ABS Malfunction on your truck. The tire size don't make a difference to your ABS as long as all four tires are the size, There was a issue bulletin with your Tahoe on the ABS activating under 8 km/h. Good luck and hope this helps, if not clean out the sensor with brake parts cleaner and check the wire harness and ABS sensor bracket. Re gap the sensor to the speed ring hub. Here is the bulletin.
