SOURCE: 2005 impala ls the abs light and the traction control light comes

You'll need to have the codes read from the computer. You will have a code that indicates one of the front wheel sensors is bad. This could be the case, but they are very expensive as they are built into the wheel bearing assemblies. It is more likely that the wiring harness between the frame and the part of the front spindle that holds the harness, has broken internally. It is a very common problem and can be repaired with a new wiring harness section or by tracking down the fault and repairing it.

hi,
this simply means the wheels are slipping and the computer is applying the brakes(trac) and reducing the accelerator (eng speed reduced) to try and bring the car back into control. It basically means its time for new tires or rotate the front ones to the back so the wheels slip less...

SOURCE: My stability system and traction

Hello Tip.

All three systems rely on some of the same sensors in order to operate.
In this case most likely is wheel speed sensors. By far the most common problem.
The system will need to be scanned to find out which is the offending one and be repaired.
Not all scan tools have the capability to read ABS systems. Make sure whoever you take it to has this available. Most good shops will have this.
If you have further questions on this, please ask me here, be glad to help.
Thank you for using FixYa.

You seem to have an issue with the traction control system and you will need a shop with the capability of accessing those modules to read them.

Reduced power is a problem with electronic throttle contol . drive by wire . Do you know what this is ? Taking the vehicle an having it hooked up to diagnostic tool an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes is always a first step when trying to find the root cause of any trouble light ! And not auto zone , pep boys , or advance auto parts . Thier diagnostic tool will not check codes in all system control modules .

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

I have a 2010 Chevy impala. Reduced engine power and check engine light also comes on but won't stay on. Codes are P2138 P2122 P0455


Hi Rosalee_IM,
The codes your vehicle is storing are for low voltage from your accelerator pedal position sensor and a gross evaporative emission leak. The code P2122 and P2138 are directing you to test the accelerator pedal position circuit and/ or sensor. This is the cause of the reduced power concern you are feeling.The P0455 is telling you there is a large leak in the evaporative emission system. The most common cause for this code is a loose or incorrectly installed gas cap.I hope this helps clarify the concerns you are experiencing. If you'd like more information on how to trouble shoot the problems,drop me a line. Please include the model Impala you have,(LS,LT or LTZ) and the engine size. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.Thanks, Chuck

May or may not have anything to do with the engine light, the traction control system is shut down due to the check engine light , whenever the computer sees the engine is not operating within specs it will turn on the engine light and also the trac light, the first thing to do is have the computer scanned to see what the codes are that are stored in the computer.there are many auto part stores that will scan it for free and give you a print out of the codes, if you can get the codes i can help you further but the codes are the first step.as far as the tires i dont think that has anything to do with it,it sounds like a bad sensor or maybe something got left off during the fluid repair , the codes will help in this. good day

2008 traction control and engine light on


your powertrain warranty will cover the check engine light most likely as long as you are under a hundred thousand miles and the traction control light is most likely related to the engine light, Take your vehicle to your local chevrolet dealer, or if you are beyond the mileage have autozone or checker pull the Diagnostic trouble code out and it will lead you to the most likely cause of the problem
