    The car was under extended warranty period. The warranty expire after they bring it back to me. They don't charge to me. But they said they don't know how to fix it. The dealer contacted chevrolet for a service bulleting and they don't have it.

    I got up this morning thinking about broken tone rings on your drive axles They can drive it & record any data they want & then play it back at the shop

The dealer should not have discussed any billing to you,
or released the vehicle -until the problem was resolved

Take it back & tell them you no longer want it-- until it is
fixed & you want a free rental car

SOURCE: 2007 Chevrolet Uplander LT ABS and TC light on

We were having this problem...have your wheel bearing checked out. There was a sensor in the drivers side wheel bearing...once we replaced it (because it was going out) the ABS and Traction Control warning lights stopped coming on.

SOURCE: ABS and Traction Control Light On

Because the brakes were changed, either one of the sensors were broken when removing brakes or it has set a code. Go to your local autoparts store and have them reset the code. See if it comes back on. If it does you will need to look at the ABS sensors on each wheel and replace if damaged

SOURCE: how do i reset my abs/traction control in my 2005

there is no way to reset the ABS. The light indicates a problem and will need to be diagnosed and fixed. Most likely the ABS module failed. It can be rebuilt at modulemaster.com. Check out the price before commiting to the price the dealer will charge.

If your handy you can remove the module and still drive the car while waiting for the 10 day turnaround on the repair.

Most modules fail at around 5 years from new depending on usage.

I have a 2005 Equinox. The abs and tc light are on. Also there is an occaisional sound and vibration when I press on the brakes going at a slow rate of speed. The local Chevy dealer test drove the...


Have a competent mechanic scan the codes in the ABS control. A common fail point of the 2005 Equinox is the wire harness jumper for the drivers front wheel sensor. This is a foot and a half long jumper that connects the wheel sensor to the engine compartment wire harness. It is rigidly held in place by a couple of plastic stays that create a pinch flex point just beneath the lower stay where wheel turn moves the wire against this rigid point. After about 60-80k miles, the wire begins to break down in the insulator and false wheel speed readings are read as false wheel slip indications while the ABS system tries to modulate brake pressure. This modlation creates the grinding feel. After an amount of time, the ABS computer "recognizes" this as a fault and shuts ABS and traction control off since both systems use the wheel spin input, and the dash lights light.
Although this is a pretty pricey part at a dealer, a genuine Delco replacement part can be found online often at a much more reasonable price.

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.

After hitting a bump my abs and tc lights came on in my 2005 equinox. They went of when i started the car again then came on after going over a speed bump


Hello.
The ABS, ( anti-lock break system ) has a sensor on each wheel that can come lose after hitting dips and speed bumps. If you are mecahanical you may be able to fix it yourself, if not, any auto shop can fix it in just a couple of minutes.

I'm not real sure about the tc, ( traction control ) system, sorry.

I have a 05 Chevy Equinox awd, I had the same problem with the abs. its a grinding feel and sound. kinda like the abs is kickin in. the abs traction control lights are on. I put it on the abs computer and...


Is the sensor tone ring in the bearing or on the side axle. If the ring is internal to the bearing have you replaced the bearing when you replaced the sensor (sold as one unit normally, aftermarket). If the tone ring is external, check it for cracks or loose fit on the axle. Also the wiring integrity of the sensor from the connector in the wheel wheel back to the EBCM (electronic brake control module) should be checked as well. hope this will help you

ABS light and TC light on


Have you tried to replace the pads ? Or it can be the rotors that are worn thin and need replacement. The pads seem to be grinding agains the metal rotors.
