Abs traction control lights

I have 1997 Cadillac deville the abs & traction control Lights and service engine soon light are on. Right now I am trying to figure out the problem with the abs & traction control lights. I read all of the previous post and I tried alot, to avail. I have checked all of the fuses they were a little corroded so I cleaned those and then I pulled all the wheels off to check the speed sensors. One was disconnected so I plugged it in and still have the lights on. I have another parts car but I don't know what to do next. Please help??? I would appreciate any and all help.
Sincerely,
Barrett

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.

Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

I have a 2002 Cadillac Deville and a few weeks ago three lights came on at once: Traction Control, ABS and Brake light are all on in my dash. Did something get disconnected? How can I repair this?


have the code pulled from the computer to find out what set the lights on.the traction control works off of the abs sytem and so if theres a problem its not uncommone for both lights to come on.the brake light and abs lights on at the same time means there is a possible serious problem

I would open with a visit to a transmission shop. on a car that old you are looking at a rebuild which may well cost more than the car is worth. things, just like people, wear out and break down with age and use. after the transmission is rebuilt you are going to need an engine diagnostic to find out what is making the service engine light stay on. In the olden days cars just broke down with no warning, the silly thought behind the warning lights was that folks would get the cars seen to if they had advance warning of a coming failure. however the sad truth is that the lights just stay on warning of failure until the failure ad then the owner wonders why.

Could have a ABS wheel speed sensor going bad, once this happens will disable the ABS and the trac control. Have it scanned and find out which sensor is bad. Small possibility of ABS module failure, but not as likely.

My ABS light is on as well as my traction control light. Also my truck and gas button dosen't work and my inside linterior lights don't work


The taction light generally lights when you have an ABS fault. This is very rational because you don't want the traction control trying to kick in if the ABS is off line. Check your fuses first. If all good bring it to a qualified shop. DON'T mess with barkes unless you know whatyuo are doing
