Trac Off Light always lit

Just bought a 99 Sebring Lxi. the trac off light is lit and will not turn off using the button. Also the ABS light is on and braking is harder than it should be. Are the two lights related? Is there an easy fix?

Hello, let's see what we can do.
To answer your question, yes they are related. Either your ABS system is malfunctioning, you need to replace your brake pads or the vacuum booster is leaking.
Do you hear a hissing sound under the hood? If so it might be the vacuum booster. Does the engine run rough when you apply the brakes? That can indicate the same problem. Let me know what you find.

Svs, abs. no trac, and perf shift lights


Trac control and ABS lights come on usually when one of your ABS wheel sensors is either bad and needs replacing or corroded and just may need cleaning. This happened to me. It was my front left abs sensor. they replaced it and al the lights went out and all good now. I also bought an OBDII that plugs into your car and the computer tells the OBDII whats wrong and what sensor it is. You also get the option to erase the codes and put out some or all the lights on your dash. Some times a glitch will light a light on the dash and resetting or erasing it with the OBDII corrects the problem. Hope this helps. God Bless :O)

I have a 2001 Sequoia replaced connectors to battery. Now E brake light ABS light Trac Off and VSC Trac light are on. I disconnected ground and let it sit. Had code ran and it said open closed circuit abs?...


More than likley its your VSC computer (VSC Trac, VSC Off, E brake and ABS brake lights all lit). This problem has been sited on other Sequoias that had the TSB brake caliper/rotor upgrade (recall) and that more than likely the VSC software or computer was not updated to meet the demands of the newly installed brake upgrade.

Vt commodore problems My 98 VT wagon has real


run a fault code reader to reset the abs and trac lights as the trac light uses the same sensor as the abs.. IF the pedal is still soft then there is still air in the brake system. You may have to crack the lines at the master cylinder first and bleed there first then start at the longest line and work back to the shortest

I don't understand the whole traction light thing. my car always says trac off-except when it says low trac and slides like it's on ice.


TAKE CAR TO A GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP HAVE THE ABS BRAKES AND TRACTION CONTROL CODE SCAN.YOUR ABS BRAKE SYSTEM WILL COME ON ADJUSTING BRAKE PRESSURE TO AVOID A SKID.THAT WHY LOW TRAC LIGHT COMES ON. MOST OF THE TIME WHEN YOU SEE LOW TRAC LIGHT DRIVING ON DRY ROADS PROBLEM IS IN THE ABS BRAKE UNIT OR BAD WHEEL SPEED SENSOR.

My abs light came on along with the trac off light


Think you will be going into the shop with this one. Need to scan the ABS for codes, most likely one of the front sensors is no good. I am 99% sure they are part of the hub bearing asm. Usually its the left one

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.

Transmission shifts hard when the trac off light comes on


youll need to scan for transmission codes. the trac off light is a default of the trans going into a default safety mode. Bad speed sensors and simple little bolt on items like that can cause the condition but only way to really nail it is with a computer.
