I think you can take a OBD2 code reader to have a check, and you will know what problem cause the lights on.

I had the same problem my car. It started once in a while until the light would not go off. My husband looked at it and he said the wire on the antilock brake bearing hub corroded and came off. Maybe yours is starting to corrode. My husband said to tell you that there are two wires that come out of the back of the bearing hub. He soddered it together on mine and I hav not had a problem since.

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

SOURCE: abs and traction control lights coming on

Its the abs sensor, if you encounter an ice patch or snow you won't even be able to stop because the pedal will will push back and make the rip grind noise. If you pull the ABS fuse out, you won't have ABS but you can stop and you won't have the grind noise and back pressure for now. Its safer to not have ABS when the sensor is faulty.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix... The Abs

the trac shuts off when theres a check engine light or a abs light on, most likely theres a bad abs wheel sensor but you will have to have the abs computer scaned to find out which one it is. hope this helps.

Traction light on


Traction light is part of the ABS brake system. I had to the same problem 2 years ago and my auto repair guy said it was my front hub bearing. I replaced both sides with new hub bearing (right & left wheel) and now I have to replace the left one again. The thing about 04 grand prix gt they have a wheel/hub bearing problems. GM never recalled for this problem

Why does the abs light stay on as well as the tsc light say off


  • One or more of your ABS sensors has more than likely gone out. ABS is Automatic Braking System. This is an auto pumping of your breaks as a way to prevent skidding. The TCS (Traction Control System) light is going off because of the ABS. One is making the other react.

  • So there are a few diagnosing things you can do first before just throwing in a part. To find out exactly which ABS is malfunctioning you can take your vehicle to Auto Zone and get it scanned free of charge.

  • Check for abnormal brake dust buildup on the rotors. Check the master Cylender and the EBTCM - Electronic Brake Traction Control Module on the master brake cylender for broken connectors and wires. Make sure all the brake lights are working properly and that no water is sitting in the brake light assembly.

  • As mentioned above if all this checks out then you need to get it scanned to find out the ABS sensor that has failed. If you pull the wheel and look on top of the rotor towards the back you can see the ABS sensor. They are an easy replace. They literally twist out and remove the connector and then replace with a new one. so don't spend big bucks on a replacement you can do this yourself.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
