The air pressures may be off. If those are confirmed good, you have to reset the system . You can do that with your on board computer.

Hold down the reset for a few seconds until the light goes out. If this does not work, repeat.

When these lights come on together often times you need to replace a wheel speed sensor. check for the blue connectors under each fender well and make sure all of them are plugged in. 90% that I have seen are the front sensors that go bad, but you will not know unless codes are pulled by the dealer. If it is not the wheel speed sensors then it possibly could need a abs control module.

Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights

You are right about the quality of ride,and would probably notice better handling as well.However when selecting new tires you need to awnser 3 basic questions.Where do you live?,what type of driver are you?And of course, what is your price range.If you live where you get snow and ice your going to need all-season tires.If you dont have to worry about that I would go with summer tires.They tend to offer better grip and ride and are also cheper.The down side is they tend to wear quicker.As far as brand,if money isnt an object go with bridgestone,michelin,or goodyear.If it is there are many good tires for less,check out sites like tirerack.com and you can read customer reviews.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ABS, Tire Pressure and Airbag Light Fault on '05 MINI Cooper

The computer you are looking for is called an ASC control unit and is located in the right hand side of the engine bay.
I advise you have the fault codes checked first as a new ASC control unit is not cheep and will require coding.

If tires are actually at correct pressure sending units inside tires may need new batteries. Tire shops can deal with this and usually offer to take care of this when you buy tires.

I switched tires on my 07 GMC sierra the orgional tires have a max of 44 psi and the new ones have a max of 80 psi i aired them up to 65 psi and now its telling me to check tire pressure


Hello: Do not go by the pressure printed on the tires. On the drivers door frame or door sill there is a white tag that gives the recommended tire pressure for the truck. If tire(s) are over inflated or under inflated the light will come on........ Once you get the proper pressure in the tires and drive it the light should go out. If when the new tires were installed they didn't put the wheels back in the same position the the location of each wheel will have to be reprogrammed into the system.

There is a loud howling noise coming from the rear end of my 2006 Chevy equinox. At first I though it was the tread on my new tires but it's definitely getting louder and isolated to only the rear end....


If it's a All Wheel Drive then it could be a gear oil leak that has caused a bearing in the drive train to fail. Just adding gear oil won't fix the problem, but may limit the damage until it's repaired.
If it's a Front Wheel Drive, then you may have a Wheel Hub Bearing Assembly failing. This usually has a ABS [ Anti-Lock Brake ] light associated with it.
Either is dangerous and should be checked ASAP.

Why do i get ashuder on my polo 07 model 1.4i or not stable on rd i put new ball joints tierod ends rack ends thanx regards sam naidoo.


I shouldn't think an 07 model would have enough wear on the front suspension components to cause the type of problems you describe, unless you sustained damage in an accident or drive in rough terrain. I would suspect one or more bad tires or misalignment. Worn struts could be part of the problem. If the shudder you describe is in the front end, rotate your tires front to back and see if the shudder moves to the rear. If it does, then it's most likely bad tires.

I had new tires put on my van and since then the air pressure light is on. What could be the problem?


either one of the 4 tires is low on air or the system was never reset. However the most common is the tire installer mounted the tires improperly and caused damage to one of the sensors. They run usually about 100.00 a piece and most often need to be programmed to the car.

It has to do with true round or weight. either the rim is out of round or is damaged for some reason. Or maybe the rotors are not balanced. Sometimes wedge style weights are used and they fall off. Good luck.

2000 Ford Explorer AWD purchased with different size tires


It is true that driving with different size tires can damage the transfer case, depending on how long it was driven like that. But--- even if the tires are the same size it can cause this. if the tires are worn and two tires are new the circumference of the tires must not be more than 1/2 inch difference from each other, take a tape measure and put it around the tire in the center and measure the difference of each tire
