Question about Cadillac STS
These lights were never on until I had a shop replace my o2 sensors. He asked if I had air ride and to turn it off but there is no off switch. He did the work, my engine light is off. I left happy until I noticed these yellow ABS and Traction control lights were on. I've had all four brakes done last month and new rear shocks put in same time. I called the shop who did the o2 sensores , he says my computer is old. Or may need a sensor over the phone and to disconnect my battery then reconnect it. If it didn't go away he said he'd look at it. I did what he said but instead of saying bring it in, he told me the computer is either tired or I need a sensor or two replaced.. Is this a coincidence?? or does he know he did something and doesn't want to have to pay for it??Anyway can any one help me with this I usually do my own work but I had him do the work because the O2 sensor's needed re threading on the pipe. Any input is appreciated.. I'm sick of my dash board telling me to do.. lol.. in short he fixed one problem and introduced more!! why are my lights on?? I
I don't know how he fixed damaged O2 Threads in exhaust pipe
He must be a magician
I would just go back to doing your own work or try another shop
I never knew computers grow old,my dog grows old,not electronics
for the most part
No professional worth anything, would want you to clear all data,
as they would clear data that was needed to possibly resolve things
& you don't as a shop owner discuss things over the phone as the
customer gets confused
I would say you have a new problem with possibly a bad wheel speed sensors

The computer is tired or you need a sensor or two are not acceptable answers. Its possible he damaged something by lifting the car.
I would take it somewhere that can scan the computer for trouble codes and see what has failed. The computer stores codes when the warning lights are on. Once you know what the codes are you can figure out if it is something he may have done.

Have you worked on your own vehicles,? The speed sensor is a 1 bolt 10 min job. The real question is that the problem? Who told you ,a professional who actually tested it. Why not have them finish the task and replace it

u don't need an obd tool for a caddy. you can read/clear it yourself using the dash controls. the traction control light probably won't clear until you fix the problem. usually it's a wheel sensor which involves changing the wheel hub. not a big job. you need to find out which one is bad and the 'puter should tell you that. here is a website i found that will tell you how to read/clear the codes as well as what those codes mean. this should be helpful.

The VSC has nothing to do with the O2 Sensor,TPS Sensor or EGR Valve.
I will not express what I'am thinking,but in reality,NO Diagnostic work was done
on your vehicle.
My advice,and I don't know why the pros aren't all over me yet,is never go to a dealer.
You and thousands of others on this site alone,are perfect examples of why you
go down the street, to a local repair shop that cares.
I bet if you checked your in & out milage, that they are the same. Never road
tested,nothing,just threw parts at it at your expense.
There are good techs at dealers,but no service Mgrs that care,it is all about
taking your money and selling services you don't need. On the 5th visit they will
make the drivability repair you went there for.
Common sense: asumming they pulled codes
you never have multiple sensor failures all at one time.

bank 2 is the bank that doesn`t have cylinder #1 in it.sensor 2 is the sensor after the catalytic or at the rear of the catalytic converter.with mazda use a good quality sensor(preferedly factory) as if its poor quality sensor it will set a code and cause problems.you also usually have to cut and splice the wires to the original plug to use them.try buying one from a parts store that you don`t have to cut and splice that way it theres a problem with the sensor you can get it replaced easier.
