The ABS light being on means the Anti-Lock Brake System has a problem and is shut off until repaired. The TC light should be Traction Control, which will come on when there is a problem with the ABS. If the check engine light is on then there is a issue with the engine controls, Testing will need to be done to come up with the fix to keep the lights off.

The service abs light and the service engine soon are on in my 2006 chevy uplander. Also the all wheel drive is disabled light. I just had a different motor put in can i reset it?

i would start off by checking the abs cables and sensors, if one is broken or damaged it will keep the all wheel drive from working and the abs. if the technician let somethings hang or crimp the cable then it wont get a signal and shut down the abs and stabilitrak/awd if the cables are ok and if your able to get the abs sensor free from the hub check the ends of it, its essentially a magnet and they will get metal pieces stuck to them, also if a hub was messed with a bad hub can grind down the ends of the abs sensors. put antiseeze before you put the sensor back in because they can be hard to remove and can get broken off inside, which can be fun to try to remove. if you remove the abs sensors from the hub, if able to there should be a torx or allen, remove that then wiggle it gently out so it doesnt break. start with the cheapest and easist and work on. also a code will go a long way in diagnostics, a good scanner will tell you the speed from each wheel (live data) and that will tell you something if one wheel says your going 15mph and the other says 0, while the vehicle is going 15 mph then the one claiming 0 is bad. after checking the abs system move onto other things such as maybe stabilitrak, these problems can be fun to work on so dont get discouraged,
good luck!
also its recommended to change the hub(s) and not just the abs sensor if you find a bad, broken or damaged sensor.
and if i think of something else i will keep you posted.

Put new bearing and abs sensors on right and left wheel and abs light still on. What is wrong?

Did you unhook the battery when installed ? Might need to clear memory if you didn't .

Just had new disc an brake pads and new abs sensors an my abs light is still on

Might want to take it to a car dealership and get that checked out. Either something's still not quite right with your brakes, or your light simply needs resetting. Try consulting the owner's manual.

ABS light is on, so is check engine and service engine soon light. all gauges are dead. light to mileage is on but not moving. at various times all other lights battery, oil, even ti have come on and gone...

Well, it could mean that the emergency brake has not been fully released.The ABS system light is on if something has occurred within the ABS system. Something faulty may have happened there, get it checked out!

Service Traction System Light

Remove any and all abs fuses for ten minutes then put them back. I think that will work. It will not reset if battery is disconected so it will keep memory of problems. In case battery is unhooked.

Put new abs sensors in and brake light and abs light still on

Have the ECU scanned for codes. Then check out the circuit it specificies and do the repair accordingly.
Once you got the codes that are giving you the lite let me know what it is.
