The passenger wheel bearing has the speed sensor for the ABS and Traction Control. I bet is bad on yours. I replaced mine on my car and fixed that problem. The part is like $100 in the local Auto Zone. Is held by 3 Bolts that comes off from the back of the Hub Assembly.

You need to remove the wheel, Calipers and Rotor Disk. There is a huge nut that screws on on the front, you need a breaker bar and a metric socket, I think is like 21mm. Get a can of WD40 it will make the job easier. The new bearing comes with Lugs, so you do not need to remove the Lugs from the old bearing.

The job can be done at home with few tools.

A car mechanic will charge Parts Plus labor, like $60 a hr or so.

The reason the TRAC OFF light has come on is most likely because of a problem in the ABS system. When the ABS computer sees a problem, it will disable the traction system. There are several common causes for an ABS problem.

The ABS lite, No Trac Lite and Service engine lite keep coming on


When the Service engine soon, ABS and TRAC lights are turned on at the same time the computer control units for the engine and the ABS/TRAC systems has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system and the ABS and Traction Control system (part of the ABS system). When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different or the car drive any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, the fault in your car is likely a part called the VSS sensor to know for sure what the problem is you must have the system tested; Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free

ABS, brake, trac control, service engine soon light came.


I'm sorry to say that you will need to see a dealer or repair shop so they scan your ABS for trouble codes first and then find your problem.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

Abs and trac control lights are on


It is one of your wheel bearings. The problem is easily solved by taking the car to a dealer, or having a code reader, and determining which wheel bearing is bad. The wheel bearing is under $150 and should be installed by someone with some muscle, as the bolts are torqued from the factory extremely tight in a tight location. The wheel bearing have all of your sensors for abs built into them and if that sensor goes out your computer tells the abs and traction control to shut down, hence you get the lights on on the dash.
