Traction antibrak

there is a code set in the ABS computer that will have to be checked out and the same with the check engine light but the code will be in the PCM for that. it could be a damaged sensor/wires at the sensors or if you driving in deep snow it could be causing a false code and there is nothing wrong.

You may have ice build-up in the brakes casusing the ABS to engage- [ the traction and service light will both come on with the ABS. Check to see if you have ice.

OK, if the ABS light goes on, many times it is due to a dirty or bad wheel speed sensor. Don't worry too much, because if the ABS light is on, standard braking will work. If you don't notice any pulling to one side or the other, and you can come to a full and complete stop without skidding, it's probably ok, until you can have the ABS system repaired at your convenience.

Turning the car off will reset the ABS system on Chevrolet Cars and Light trucks. But, if the ABS light comes back on, it probably means it has lost a signal from one or more of the wheel speed sensors.

Sometimes a wheel hub assembly with an ABS sensor on it will be necessary to repair the problem on many late model vehicles.

Good luck on this repair.

My TCS indicator light comes on and stays on

some markets have a button on the dash with tcs/abs and a dash light saying "tcs off".if your car has not got the button then you cant turn it off(germany no)abs/tcs should only be turned off in deep snow,otherwise best left alone,unless you have been taught how to drive with/without.....(on ice you wants the wheels to turn,on snow you want the snow to wedge to slow you down......)see what i mean???

Pontiac G6 ABS Problem

when the ABS light comes on you will not hear or feel anything cause soon as the ABS light comes on the ABS is disabled
sounds like it is weather related (rain,snow)
i would check both rear wheel speed sensor harnesses for water intrusion if you see any corrosion (green) on the terminals replace both the hub and harness
if there is no corrosion then check resistance of the sensor also check for a short to ground
if that is ok then put some dielectric lube on the wheel speed sensor terminals and clear the codes and see what happens
intermittent problems can be hard to find
hope this helps

2006 Subaru ABS light and check engine light on, snowy conditions

An addition to my previous post (after talking to my husband more). Three of our wheels were snow packed. Not the wheel wells, but the inside of the wheels. He thinks that this is what caused the problem. The ABS sensors are located there. Having them encased in snow was likely what caused this condition. Solution = clean all the snow off your tires -- and the problem should go away. Sounds like the problem is moisture gets into the ABS sensor or something shorts out with the communications to those sensors.

My ABS light came on, what does that mean?

No need to worry, If you need to wait a while to get it fixed it won't make your van unsafe to drive. What more than likely happened is one of your ABS wheel sensors quit working on you. If you know someone with a Snap On Scanner with the ABS reader cartrage, you can find out wich one is not working. Untill then, you can safely drive, just keep in mind if you do slam on your brakes in the snow or ice, they will lock. It would be like driving an older vehicle without ABS. Anyway, no harm will come to you or your van because of the light on.
Hope this helps!
