The Trac button disengages the Traction Control System. I think some engineer installed this button specifically for teenage boys. I would keep the traction button on as it will help you in bad weather to reduce the chance of wheel spin.

Abs, brake light, and trac off warning light on


wire to one of your wheel speed sensor/abs connector may have come loose..but more likely the sensor itself is shot....you need to get a scan tool hooked up to get a code..itll tell you which whell your problem is at

2001 pt,abs &trac lite come on car hesitates sometimes dies,in a garage & they cant find the problem


I have a 01 pt that did the same thing. By you're exhaust manifold there is a thick wire set with loom over it. Pull it back and check the orange wire. It controls the crankshaft Senor mine was burnt through. Easy fix black tape and a price of wire, spliced it together and was good to go. But I relocated the wire off my exhaust

Hi, I have had my abs on and track on light on for 2 days now ...Can you help me ion solving this problem. It is a PT Cruiser 2001. Thanks Kind Regards Taher


I would have the car run on a scanner. It sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor as the abs and trac light rely on this sensor.

Trac Off and ABS Lights came on, won't go off


trac control & abs light staying on in dash on pt cruiser 2001 limited
well had same problem with my pt cruiser 2001, firstly there is no need to plug in computer under the dash for pulling abs error codes,
because the problem can be the cracked abs ring on the drive shaft/cv joint,
turn your steering all the way to left and ask your colleague to see if behind the tyre the abs ring is broken or cracked,
it is circular like a bracelete with grooves, then turn the steering to the right and repeat the inpesction,
if the abs ring is cracked then look on ebay or web for pt cruiser abs ring or kia abs ring, should cost about £5-£10 each
and a garage could heat it up with gas and hammer it into the drive shaft/cv joint for you for about £20-£30,
takes about 30min to 45mins, make sure the garage dont heat the cv booth kit rubber next to the abs ring when heating it up.
i heard you can only buy abs ring for front wheels and its not available separately for rear wheels,
so for rear you may need to buy the whole part it comes on
the front abs rings are easily visible when you turn the wheel to one side, the rear ones may not be visible as i have not seen them
so if the abs ring are good then it wil probably be one of the wheel sensors, in this case you you may look for a garage who will hook up
the computer and pull the code for you, be carefull if the say there are no abs error codes it means the sensors are ok and most of it
there is no need to buy abs sensor for any wheel when there are no error codes
on pt cruiser you can pull engine error codes yourself without a computer, just do the key dance on the ignition,
turn key until dash lights come on then switch off and then again turn key until dash lights come on then swithch off,
then turn key for third time again until dash lights come on , you will see engine error codes displayed then says done,
if there are no error codes it will say done, howevere these are engine error codes only not abs error codes,
abs error codes are pulled using abs diagnostic tool
incase its a faulty wheel sensor, will cost £45 at dealer or £20 from scrap, then a garage can removed the tyre and plug out the old sensor cable
and replace it with a new one, one end is easy to plug in but the other end has to be pushed in at an angle,
its about 30min job and garage can charge £20 or so
my pt cruiser is back on the road with just one abs ring replaced and it all cost me £30 alltogether
