You can thank the Federal Govt for the Trac Control that is
imbeded into the ABS Braking System

I have that on my 2004 Lincoln LS & sorry I ordered it

On snow it cuts off injectors & slams on rear brakes

Total Waste & useless technology from my 1960's
perspective. I live in the US but grew up in Canada
so I have lots of experience in snow,more in NJ than Ont

I have yet to figure a way to disconnect it using the wiring

SOURCE: the check tire pressure light and ABS auto

The tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure. Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have been rotated. You should be able to re-initialize the system by following these steps:

1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

SOURCE: abs light/traction control light

You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.

How do ABS brake systems work on 2004 Rav 4's on icy roads


ABS systems are designed to engage when braking suddenly causing tire skid/spin...the system is designed to pump the brake pedal and the driver should hold the brake pedal down firmly...DO NOT PUMP...the ABS does this for you.

Very poor traction in snow -


The answer to your issue most likely lies in the brand of tire. Kumho has very poor tread wear and often handles poorly in slick and snowy conditions. While their dry surface handling is generally good, and they seem quiet, that is about the extent of the plusses for Kumho. Sorry.

My 2007 Lincoln Town car traction control dpesn't work. On icy roads the traction control light on the dash lights up but both wheels continue to spin and when I push on the accelerator the car...


Ice is a big problem. There is very little traction to be had and managed. It is likely that the system is working, but in icy conditions you simply need to be VERY gentle on the gas pedal. The heavier the car the bigger the problem. Traction control systems will work well in wet or even in snowy conditions, but if you are gunning the engine on ice, nothing will help. You will be out of control.

My 2007 Chevrolet Impala has some rear suspension problem. First noticed on snowy/icy road conditions traveling at 50 mph, the car was swaying, fish tailing with no traction. Later noticed when driving...


Replace rear shock absorbers.
Their function is to maintain contact between tires and floor. When they are worn the wheels spend too much time in the air without any traction.

Front end problem


I assume you did ALL the work yourself & have actually
been under the car & getting involved

If not,you won't like my answer

You provided no vehicle

So how about the steering rack if you have one

Have to use logic

For a vehicle to go anywhere other than where you
steer it, should be a 5min solution, to at least find the
problem ,after a road test & lift check

Tracker grinding sound


It's hard to say exactly what it is, but here is the best and fastest way to check it yourself. Safely jack the tire off the ground so you can freely spin it. An remember do all of this with the tire on. It will give you the leverage you will need and it simulates more real world conditions. But after you jack the tire and rim off the ground. Spin in backwards and forwards and see if you can hear any noises. Also grab the tire and see if there is any up and down or left and right slack or play in it. If there is. You may have a bad wheel bearing. The reason it wasn't detected was because it hard to properly diagnos a bearing if you don't have enough leverage to apply pressure to the bear. Where as leaving the tire and rim on you were able to creat the leverage and pressure to check for slack and wear in the wheel bearing. Hope this helps.

What is the foot pounds for the front wheel bearings on a 1995 chrysler cirrus


Hello, If you Chrysler has replaceable wheel bearings and seal. This is the way it goes---pack the wheel bearing with new grease-install the bearing in the wheel nub--install new back wheel seal--coat the axle shaft with grease lightly, thing coat-----install wheel hub on to axle shaft...be careful here don't damage the rear hub seal------------insert front race washer---install axle shaft nut--tighten nut down wheel nut until it is firm with water pump pliers----spin the hub/with tire mounted.
(the wheel and hub will turn but not freely)----take the pliers and back off the axle nut 1/4 turn----now spin the wheel and axle hub, it should spin freely---now if doesn't spin freely---back off the axle nut about 1/16 or 1/32 (or just a little bit)-----now, spin the wheel and hub and if turn freely------------Now grab the top of the wheel/tire and move it back and forth.-----if there is some movement ---try tighten the axle nut just a little little bit, unit the one can barely feel some little movement in the wheel/tire and hub.-----------Now, spin the wheel/tire and hub and it should also turn freely.

If it does----install new and correct size of cotter pin and bent the ends around the axle nut.----

coat the inside of the hub cup with grease. Now, use an rubber or plastic hammer to install the cup on the wheel/tire hub. You are finished with one wheel bearing maintenance. Now do the other side.



I really don't know if you Chrysler Cirrus has replaceable wheel bearing. All the auto/trucks have replaceable hubs, that means that the replacement is total hub with axle shaft, sealed bearings, and seals. This is bolt to each wheel steering hub. This work to remove these one unit hubs.

Four bolts hold the axle hub to the steering hub. Hear is the problem!! it has rusted to the steering hub. Also, these hubs cost more than replacing bearings, races, seals to cool turn of $180 to $250+ I wish you luck in your replacement of wheel bearing on your Chrysler. GB..stewbison

When driving my car the steering wheel shakes


If the steering wheel starts to shake between 55-65 MPH then you need to balance the wheels. If it shakes when you press the brakes, your brake rotors are warped and need to be cut or replaced. If the steering wheel shakes at low speeds then it's possible one of your rims is bent or one of your tires is out of round. Leaving a car parked for a long time in snowy and icy roads will damage your tires, causing them to warp. Depending on which situation is causing your steering wheel to shake, have it looked at.

Should you disable the traction control on a 2006 Ford Explorer when driving on snowy roads at a speed of 35-40 mph?


the role of the Electronic Control System is to avoid wheel spinning on icy or 'snowed' surfaces. When the system that one wheel having traction is spinning faster than the others than it will apply brake to that particular wheel to help it to recover its traction.
In the reality, the system is more active when you are accelerating after a stop on icy surface. Once the vehicule got its speed the system should be less active .
Globally, this system should help to keep the traction at its best under any condition.
However, my personnal experience is that you could have to desactivate the system if you are driving in heavy snow condition. Under these particular conditions, the system could apply brakes to a point/frequency that your vehicule will run as a turtle.

In conclusion, there is nothing bad if you let the system manage by itself, unless you don't like the feeling or unless the system generates more problems than benefits.
Hope I have ansered your questionning.

Severe crunch sound with ABS system, plus ECS light goes on.


Good news,

Your noisy experience with your ABS and ECS is exactly what all of these systems do in icy, snowy, and any environment that causes your tires to lose traction. The ECS light when blinking or illuminated is just informing you that the ECS is being activated to let you know your traction is limited.

I have an Elantra and have driven my GF's '06 Sonata many times. I live in MN and it does the same thing with snow etc. and so has past cars i've owned such as Subaru Legacy, Pontiac Grand Prix, and Toyota Camry.

With ABS it does seem to take quite some distance to stop in icy or snowy conditions. When it's dry it's impossible to beat.
