    1) you may or may not have traction control issues that need to be addressed by a qualified facility , or when the traction control is disabled in the drivers menu the traction control light will illuminate , this feature can be enabled or disabled in the drivers display menu , left of steering column , refer to owners manual for menu and features enabling . 2) noise heard in front right sounds like the suspension pump adjusting the vehicles ride height .

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)

My Traxtion and ABS lights come on at same time and noise come from front area of car. What does this mean?


Depending on what car you have. It's as though you have an abs ring/sensor fault, the noise you are hearing is the abs pump working this is because the gap between the abs sensor and the abs ring is to close, which make's the abs control module think that the wheel has locked up. causing it to open the valves in the abs hydro unit to try take away the pressure from the side with the fault.

Warning light on dashboard. With squiggly tire


That is the traction control light. If it comes on when you start and stays on there is a problem with the traction control system. If the check engine light is on the traction control light will also come on to let you now that it is disabled.

Why is my traction light coming on and off in my 2003 ford mustang


Could be a bad wheel sensor. Traction comes on when the ABS sees one wheel turning faster than the other. Usually this happens when a bearing is start to go out. If you hear a noise while turning, like a low hum. It would be a bearing. Turning left and hear the noise would be the right bearing. Because you are putting more pressure on it.

PRE-DIAGNOSTIC INSPECTIONBefore diagnosing ABS/TCS, perform a comprehensive visual inspection of system as follows.Check ABS/TCS wiring harness connectors for looseness. Check harness routing; pay particular attention to wheel speed sensor wiring harness routing. Check fuses No. 1D, 5B and 6B in instrument panel fuse block. Check fuses No. 1 and 2 in underhood fuse block. Check brake fluid level in master cylinder reservoir. Check brake fluid level in Pressure Modulator Valve (PMV) assembly reservoir. Ensure parking brake is fully released. Ensure parking brake switch is functioning properly. Always perform ABS/TCS system functional check before using DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHARTSThe EBCM/EBTCM has self-diagnostic capability, which can detect system failures. Fault codes stored by EBCM/EBTCM can be displayed using Tech 1 scan tester. There are no provisions for flash code diagnostics.Begin ABS/TCS diagnosis with PRE-DIAGNOSTIC INSPECTION procedure. If failures are found during pre-diagnostic inspection, perform necessary repairs, and proceed with ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK. See Fig. 5 .If no failures are found during pre-diagnostic inspection, go to ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK. See Fig. 5 . The ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK will either indicate ABS/TCS is functioning properly or direct technician to various diagnostic procedures such as diagnostic charts, symptom diagnosis or BRAKE warning light diagnosis.CHART D - TRACTION OFF WARNING LIGHT ON CONTINUOUSLY & NO DTC SET (BUICK WITH UH8 OR U2A INSTRUMENT CLUSTER)Circuit DescriptionWhen ignition switch is first turned to RUN position, EBTCM goes through a self-test, which lasts 2-4 seconds. During self-test, EBTCM commands TRACTION OFF indicator warning light on. Powertrain Control Module (PCM) can also command EBTCM to set a Code 75 which will illuminate TRACTION OFF indicator.Traction control switch is located either on instrument panel center trim plate or driver's front door trim panel. Switch allows driver to select traction control mode (on/off). When traction control system is turned off, TRACTION OFF warning light comes on.EBTCM monitors transaxle temperature through

Traction control on


Is this noise you're talking about coming from one of the front wheels? If it is and is louder when driving at speeds say 25-45 mph while turning the steering wheel from side to side I would say you're probably dealing with a front wheel bearing issue the noise is the bearing and the reason the lights are on is because the computers for both abs and traction control are receiving incorrect wheel speed from the side that is loose/bad.

Depending on vehicle it is I'd be looking for a bad front wheel bearing. The hubs come with a new sensor anyway. Once the bearing is worn it changes the air gap between sensor and exciter wheel and can give a false reading to the ABS unit. Has your ABS ever activated when coming to a stop sign (even when the roads are dry?). Do you hear a loud humming noise on highway?
