YOU CAR HAVE ABS AND TRACTION CONTROL.
IF YOU DRIVE ON ICE AND SNOW TRACTION CONTROL WILL APPLY BRAKES TO ONE WHEEL AND GIVE MORE POWER TO THE OTHER SO YOU WILL TAKE OF STRAIGHT. WITHOUT TRAC. CONTROL THE WHEEL WITH LES TRACTION WILL SPIN AND THE OTHER WILL STAY. MOST COMMON PROBLEM IS ABS SENSOR IS BAD.LET TECHNICIAN SCAN YOUR ABS SYSTEM TO LOCATE THE PROBLEM. REPLACE THE SENSOR AND YOU ARE READY TO DRIVE AGAIN ON SNOW AND ICE.
GOOD LUCK

I have a 2002 silverado 4x4 with a manual t/c shift. After putting it into 4 wd it will not disengage back into 2 wd.


WHAT SURFACE are you driving on,...????? ICE , pavement?
part time, full time or AWD? which is it.
Autotack????
open diffs?
some AWD have a center diff, lock , is that on? (never on pavemnt)


a chevy Jeep Grand cherokee??????
is this a 4wd question?
are you driving on pavement , ICE, snow or dirt.
my wild guess, is this is Cebby. and is not a Jeep
and is PART TIME 4WD and is not AWD
if you drive on pavement that is not covered in ice or snow
that is wrong, the manual explains that.
part time 4wd only works on ice or dirt.
more simply,. 1 tire must slip, that is be on something like ICE or dirt .
Part time 4wd has no center differentail
and if you drive on pavement (dry) it will windup the drive line
and something breaks.
so REpost what you are driving on , the world is complex
dirt,sand,snow, granite, ice, mud, ?

im guessing, here is trac-lock. discussion....
http://www.fullsizechevy.com/forum/general-discussion/technical-maintenance/504267-2002-silverado-z71-4x4-not-working.html

here are the options, then
quote:
The only 4WD options were either the base option with a manual 4WD shifter in the floor OR the more expensive pushbutton version in the dash. The pushbutton version also provides full-time 4WD capability, called AutoTrac. Whether the rear differential is Limited Slip or not is a separate option. Limited Slip is not available in the front axle.
end quote.
the base version is not for Dry pavement, and if you make that
mistake, the gears will be very hard to impossible to UN SHIFT
due to driveline gross wind up, just like any jeep, 4wd.
RTM.

ON THE 2008 FORD ESCAPE, WHEN THE ROADS ARE COVERED IN SNOW AND ICY, SHOULD THE TRACTION BUTTON BE PUSHED IN SO THAT THE DASH LIGHTS UP WITH "TRACTION". THIS BUTTON IS ALWAYS OFF, WHEN SHOULD IT...


This button turns the All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) function on and off. When the "TRACTION" light is on, the AWD function is on -- AWD should be on in snow / ice.

While driving slowly downhill in the snow I started to stop and my abs, trac, and service lights came on. They were off the next time I started my car but come on after driving a few miles every time I use...


You may have ice build-up in the brakes casusing the ABS to engage- [ the traction and service light will both come on with the ABS. Check to see if you have ice.

2006 Highlander V-6 AWD,(not Limited Ed). I Live in colorado, drive about 30k /yr, need tires that will handle the snow/ice and hopefully last for 45k, suggestions?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

In a word, finding tires that will handle snow and ice, and last for 45,000 miles is a difficult task.

Tires that perform better in the snow are traditionally 'softer' tires, and are not going to last 45,000 miles, due to the inherently softer tread composition..

We here recommend Bridgestone "Blizzak" winter tires. We have found their performance on snow to be simply tremendous. I would get come Blizzaks installed if I were you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

2006 Subaru ABS light and check engine light on, snowy conditions


An addition to my previous post (after talking to my husband more). Three of our wheels were snow packed. Not the wheel wells, but the inside of the wheels. He thinks that this is what caused the problem. The ABS sensors are located there. Having them encased in snow was likely what caused this condition. Solution = clean all the snow off your tires -- and the problem should go away. Sounds like the problem is moisture gets into the ABS sensor or something shorts out with the communications to those sensors.
