Question about 2004 Oldsmobile Alero
Anti lock , trac off and service engine soon light are on . HELP!!!!
The ABS and traction control are ususally one in the same and will require a mechanic with special tools to diagnose. You can check to make sure the brake pads are not worn out (it is about time to replace them on this year car) that the wheel sensor wires are in one piece and amke sure the brake fluid is changed (This needs to be done every 24,000 miles on any car). As for the Check Engine light, you'll need a scanner to pull the code, but check the gas cap as this is the most usual culprit. We have a 2004 Grand Am (very similar to the Alero, but without the traction or ABS) and the only time the Engine light came on was when the cap was loose.
