First of all you need to understand what is happening: One of your car's computers is seeing a problem in the ABS and/or traction control system. 1. If your ABS goes out, the result is just that you don't have 'ABS'. Your brakes will work the same as any other power brake system. 2. If your Traction Control goes out, you now have just the 'limited slip' differential cars have used since 1910. Unless you use alot of ice and snow covered and gravel roads, there isn't really any need for a 'locking' differential. That's essentially what traction control is. Neither problem present a safety issue.
There is one component that both systems share, and fail often - the wheel sensor. The wheel sensor tells the computer if a particular wheel is "slipping", or losing traction. If this happens while braking, it sets an 'ABS' trouble code. Otherwise it sets a Traction Control light. In normal driving, it will set both if it's a wheel sensor.
This car should be taken to a competent mechanic which will probably: (First) erase the codes with a code scanner and drive the car to see if they come back. There's a slim possibility that these are just 'errant codes'. (Second), if the lights come back on, test the wheel sensors and replace the bad one(s). There is no need to go to the dealer for this repair, as it would probably cost twice as much! Any good technician should also thoroughly check your braking system as a rule of thumb. Good Luck! Please let me know what you find out.

sounds like the brake pads may be metal to metal, that could be the noise problem, but until u have the system tested for the trouble code that is setin the ABS modules memory when the light comes on you are guessing, the Dealer is the only one in most cases that has the scan tool to check ABS trouble codes.

ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.

No, your check trac light is used to monitor the traction control system. It is sensing an issue in the traction control system, which is pretty complex. There may be a code saved in the computer that a dealer could pull for you.

Have the ABS Braking System tested

You most likely have a Bad Wheel Speed Sensor

The Control Switch on console does absolutely nothing,I know
I have a 2004 LS

You can not disconnect a thing
I have the factory wiring diagrams &
the answer is no

You have dash lights on-- why have you not checked for
codes & resolved the problem,same procedure when

My 2002 Lincoln LS v6 Lost Engine Power,Traction Control Light was flashing & ABS light Came on! ANY IDEA?


Had the same problem with my 2002 Lincoln LS, it was a bad wheel speed sensor. The right front wheel bearing had some play in it, so I had the hub assembly replaced. The hub assembly comes with a new wheel speed sensor attached. After I replaced the hub assmbly with sensor, the ABS and Traction Control lights went off. No problem since!

I am noticing a flashing light on my dashboard. The item flashing is a car with lines coming from behind the car. it is beside d seat belt icon. What does it mean, and how can I fix it?


the symbol with a car and 2 curved lines behind means:
"Slip control" or "Stability control" (also known as ESC, ESP, ASR or DTC) warning.
Toyota Trac Inop Light Toyota's traction control helps you maintain traction on wet, icey, loose or uneven surfaces. There are complex wheel speed sensors that will trigger the traction control safety feature as needed. If you see the trac inop light illuminate, this feature might be disabled. A Toyota service rep can access the trouble code and identify what is needed to fix any potential issues. - See more at: http://jeffwylerclarksvilletoyota.com/section/secondary/toyota-dashboard-indicators#.dpuf

Check Traction Control warning light


I can't give you an explanation for why the car is telling you to check trac. control but i can try to give some help on maybe fixing it. Try - turning on the car, turn the traction control off, turn the car off, turn the car on. Then turn the traction control back on and push the system check button. That should i guess "reset" the trac control system.

Now the noise from the front right of the car is MOST LIKELY the air compressor pumping air into the bags. (i own a 97 Continental but i've never had a problem witht the trac control)
