Remove the brake caliper and check that it's sliding pins are free and that the piston can be pushed back freely.
If it is very stiff, then also release the bleed nipple on the caliper and try again. If it is much freer, then you likely have an issue with the ABS unit. If it makes little difference, then you have a seized caliper, which you might consider replacing.

SOURCE: toyota corolla ae110 brakes binding

Please DO NOT drive in with the vehicle in this condition!!!!
What you have going on is that the brake caliper (part that holds your brake pads) is bad and sticking. Just remove it, get a NEW one from any chain autoparts store,and replace it. You will have to get a new set of pads as well,as due to the binding, the ones on there now are trashed.

Again,PLEASE do NOT drive in this condition as yours and your fellow drivers ,as well as your passengers safety is at stake.

05 gmc canyon traction control power fault


First you'll need to take it to have DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes check to find out what part of the system is at fault ! Could have a sensor , control module ,or wiring problem !
Traction Off Indicator The traction off indicator, which is a LED located on the traction control switch, illuminates only when the traction control switch has been pressed and released, disabling traction control. It is important to note that a traction fault does not illuminate this indicator and that there is no relationship between this indicator and the traction fault message.
Traction Fault Message The IPC displays the traction fault message when either of the following instances occur.
?€¢
The EBCM detects a malfunction that requires traction control to be disabled. The EBCM sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting that the message be displayed.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of serial data communication with the EBCM


Traction Control System (TCS)
When drive wheel slip is noted while the brake is not applied, the EBCM will enter traction control mode.
The EBCM uses a 5-volt pulse-width modulated (PWM) signal to request the PCM to reduce the amount of torque to the drive wheels. The PCM reduces torque to the drive wheels by retarding spark timing and by commanding the throttle actuator control. The PCM uses a 5-volt PWM signal in order to report to the EBCM the amount of torque delivered to the drive wheels.
You would need a factory grade scan tool to check data PID's - parameter identification , all the sensors work within a specific voltage range 1- 5 volts an you can see this on a good scan tool !
The Traction control is part of the ABS system an there a several DTC possible
DTC B0827 DTC B0828 DTC B2745 DTC C0035 DTC C0035 or C0040 DTC C0040 DTC C0055 DTC C0110 DTC C0191 DTC C0201 DTC C0220-C0229 DTC C0240 or P0856 DTC C0244 or P1689 DTC C0245 DTC C0267 or C0268 and C067 or C068 DTC C0550 DTC C0899 DTC C0900
You best bet is to take it to a qualified repair shop !

Tow messages appear on the dash board: Service traction control and Engine power reduced. When this happen I can feel the shift in the transmission when I'm driving. After a while these messages d


Pretty much tells you the system with the fault

Traction Control is embedded into the abs braking
system, so diagnose that using the codes you have,
same as any other obd codes you get

The Reduced Power could be another problem & it
cuts off fuel injectors to save the exhaust converter
from overheating & being ruined

Cruise control light comes on but speed will not set


You need to scan your onboard computer network for possible fault codes. Many engine, transmission, or antilock brake/traction control malfunctions will cause the cruise control to be disabled.

It seems that my transmission slips once in a while, like it wants to go into reverse, doesn't happen when traction control is off, transmission oil is clean, and isn't burning


It is probably not the transmission. It is most likely the traction control shutting the engie down. It is designed to do this if wheel slip is detected by the traction control system. If it is doing this under normal driving conditions (i.e. normal speed, dry pavement, no erratic acceleration, etc.) then the traction control system may be malfunctioning. This can be caused by several things, but the most common is a defective/malfunctioning wheel speed sensor that makes the computer "think" that a wheel is slipping when it clearly is not. A way to verify that this is the case, turn your traction control back on and drive the way you normally do. When the problem occurs, pay attention to the "TRAC" light on your dash and see if it is lighting up when the problem occurs. If it does, then the problem is definately being caused by your traction control system.

A FULL scan of your Powertrain Control Module (PCM), Antilock Brake System (ABS) module, Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) module and your Body Control Module (BCM) should be performed to see if it is setting any fault codes. Sometimes the BCM or IPC will report a network communications problem or a speed sensor problem when the other modules show "No Codes Present". Please note that this is NOT something that can be done for "free" by your local auto parts store. These types of codes are not output to a generic OBD code reader.

MESSAGE CENTRE TC


TC = Traction Active

If your vehicle is equipped with the Traction Control system, this message will stay on a few seconds after the traction system stops limiting wheel spin.

This message will appear when the traction control system is limiting wheel spin. Keep in mind that when the warning lights turn on, a fault code is stored in the ABS control module (in this case). Retrieving, diagnosing, and repairing any ABS system faults will be necessary to keep the light off. A common fault with ABS systems are the wheel speed sensors, stored codes may confirm this.

Hope this helps.

I have the EXACT problem joshvs described on jan 25,2010; Check engine light on, VDC disabled on, and cruise control on. There were no answers posted.


The "VDC Disabled" means that your Antilock brakes and traction control system has been disabled due to a malfunction, The Cruise Control light means that the Cruise control has been disabled due to a malfunction and the Check Engine light means that there is a malfunction in the engine management system. If all three lights came on at the same time, you most likely have a bad Vehicle or Wheel Speed sensor - this will affect all three. The only way to find out for sure if this is the cause, or to find out which speed sensor is at fault is to scan all your computer modules and retrieve the fault codes

There is a diagnostic code P1625 for 2001 Saab 9-3 convertible with 88,115 miles. Is this an expensive fix?


P1625 means that the engine computer has lost communication with the antilock brake and/or traction control computer for at least 3 seconds. How expensive this is depends on why it has lost communication, It could be something as simple as a loose connection at a wiring connector or a broken or shorted wire in the PCI bus circuit inside the wiring harness. (Which may require considerable diagnostic time to find) or it could be an internally failed ABS module.

Recommendation:
If you are NOT experiencing ANY of the symptoms below, I would simply clear the code and move on.... It is an intermittent fault that you will most likely not find very easily. If you ARE experiencing ONE OR MORE of these symptoms, then the problem needs to be diagnosed by checking the ABS module's ability to communicate with a scanner while testing the PCI Bus circuits.

Other possible symptoms of Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1625
• Speedometer malfunctioning
• Traction Control malfunctioning
• Antilock Brake System malfunctioning or ABS light on
• Cruise Control malfunctioning

On my 2006 Ford 500 the traction control light came on and stayed on. What does this mean?


when this light stays on it meands that the electronic control module has sensed a fault in the system and has diabled the Traction control, to find out wha this fualt is requires a trip to the local Ford dealer for a fault code test of the traction control system and diagnosis of the code found in the memory of the system.

it could be something as simple as moisture in one of the plugs, or something as complex as a broken wire inside the harness, or a loose ground wire. i would begin by checking the ground wires to the body and the ecu (computer)
