    Are the lights on all at the same time or are some on while others are off? Is the vehicle running any differently than before? And, did any event take place just prior to this problem arising (change in battery, wreck, etc)?

I suspect that your problem lies within the vehicle's ECC (Engine Control Computer). Prior to replacing it or having it tested, I would try re-setting it. You can do this by pulling the fuse (for good measure) to the ECC and disconnecting the negative battery terminal for thirty seconds.

During the time you have the power disconnected to the ECC, I would go ahead and check all the connections (make sure they're not only connected firmly, but also free of corosion). Electronic connector cleaner and a soft bronze brush (available at electronic supply stores) can be used to clean the connectors if necessary. After cleaning the connection, coat the wire ends with dielectric compound if it was used previously.

I believe the ECC for your vehicle is mounted under the hood on the passenger side wheelwell (front side of the strut tower).

Hope this helps and good luck!

Low Tire Pressure Light, ABS light, Trac Off Light and Service Traction Control


I assume this is a Ford vehicle. Start by having the rear axel serviced At the dealership. There is probably metal dust on the magnetic speed sensor, that triggers off of the ring gear inside the axel housing, causing the fault warning lights on the dash. Run an OBDII scan with a print out while at the dealer. Of coarse fix the tire.

The ABS lite, No Trac Lite and Service engine lite keep coming on


When the Service engine soon, ABS and TRAC lights are turned on at the same time the computer control units for the engine and the ABS/TRAC systems has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system and the ABS and Traction Control system (part of the ABS system). When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different or the car drive any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, the fault in your car is likely a part called the VSS sensor to know for sure what the problem is you must have the system tested; Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free

My car has several lights on and im not sure why. I have 2001 olds alero with 125,000 miles on it. The service engine light and the anti- lock and abs lights come on and stay on here lately. any clues why?...


I'll try to answer these as asked.
1. check engine light is telling you that you have an emission control problem and needs to be scanned for codes.
2. The abs and traction control light are connected and when the abs sets a problem code it will turn both on , It also needs to be scanned for codes.
3. Having a tire that is a diffrent size or more worn than others will set the tire pressure lamp and it can be cleared by removing the fuse panel door on the side of the dash and holding the red button in with the key on engine off untill it flashes or beeps and goes out.

97 pontiac grand prix problem with the ABS, low


Get in touch with the "Better Buisines Bureau" or your state "Attorney General". Those people have a way of making dealerships like that listen. I can't believe they are telling you that it's not a safety issue, when the pedal goes to the floor. You could try a different dealer, or go to an independent shop.
