Question about 1997 Cadillac DeVille

ABS/Trac control light on

After the first big snow storm this winter the ABS and Traction system stopped working in my Chrysler Town and Country 2003. We thought it just needed to thaw out but this did nothing. I had the tires rotated to make sure there was no ice stuck. The fuses all look OK. Is there a clearcut problem? The systems were functioning fine until this point

My ABS and trac off light is on, what does that mean?


Hello anber...the "Trac OFF" light comes on when there is a malfunction in the ABS because the traction control system uses the ABS sensors and other components to apply brakes to the slipping wheel so that the other wheel will get some power. Not as good as a limited-slip diff, but better than nothing. With the ABS reporting a fault, the Traction Control cannot function, and its computer disables it--hence the light. Fixing the ABS should fix the Trac problem. I would start by checking the sensors and making sure the master cylinder is full of brake fluid. I hope this helps.

03 toyota 4 runner vsc trac and trac off light are on, what´s the problem with?


VSC stands for vehicle stability control and trac is traction control they are incorporated into the ABS system all receive signals from the wheel sensors you must use a digital ohms meter to find the one reading different and replace it in some cases you might find bad connections at the plugs.in any case your brakes will work fine you just wont have ABS braking or traction control

My Trac Off light is on and so is my ABS light.


You are going to need to either replace your abs sensors or your entire wheel bearing and the abs sensor will be included... What the abs sensor does is tell the computer when the wheel is turning or locked, if the abs sensor is bad the computer will not know if the wheel is turning or not, so this will also interact with your traction control.

I got the ABS Light on my 2005 Chrysler Town and


Stop at a Tuffy or other shop and they can scan for codes to tell you which sensor may be faulty. Wheel sensors are easy to replace.

Trac on does not help traction whatsoever totally helpless when snow or ice---not sure it has worked since new when press steering column button to turn trac off---will show trac off on dash----and when...


The traction light only shows when it is turned off. If the traction control wasn't work, the van would show a code aka engine light would come on. Tracation Control only works at speeds below 35 mph.

Traction system light and abs light


Traction control systems measure wheel speed differences by various methods to determine if one wheel is rotating faster than the other. A heavier buildup of ice/snow could be affecting wheel rotation speed causing the TCS to engage. ABS works by sensing slippage at the wheels during braking, and continually adjusting braking pressure to ensure maximum contact between the tires and the road. Suggest clearing out the wheel wells now and periodically throughout the winter. Also remove ice/snow build up between the wheel and the brake pads/rotor.

Button that says "trac" over the steering colum


for traction control. most vechicles are automatic, puch it it may turn it on or off, if it turns off it should have a light that says traction off. Less drive wheels can make minor improvements to gas mileage as well as not wear other parts as much.

I have a 2001 town and country and on the steering colum theres a button that says trac, what is that.


Probably Traction control for slippery roads. Helps put power to wheels that aren't spinning, rather than the ones that are, for better/safer traction while driving.
