    My mom's car is having problems with abs light and noise too. Only happens sometimes after driving for a little while. So far, she's the only one that this has happened to. I drove it and nothing happened. A family friend drove it and nothing happened. She has a 2000 Monte Carlo with less than 62,000 miles. Has been happening off and on now for about a week. Never had this problem before.

You still have issues with the speed sensors. The wires that connect to the hubs are known for failure.

Abs light came on


What it looks like: The traction control warning light typically takes the form of the acronym "TC." Sometimes this light is a small illuminated picture of a car losing control What it looks like: The traction control warning light typically takes the form of the acronym "TC." Sometimes this light is a small illuminated picture of a car losing control. How this system works: Traction control uses wheel speed sensors to detect when one or more of the car's wheels lose grip and traction. When the system registers a loss of traction in one or more of the wheels, a computer will limit power to the wheels that are still in solid contact with the road to prevent a skid. Common reasons for this to happen:
  • ABS is malfunctioning: Traction control and ABS (anti-lock braking system) often share the same control module and internal self-diagnostics system. As a result, sometimes an issue in the ABS can trigger the traction control light. If this is the case, then both the ABS and Traction Control lights will be on.
  • Broken wheel speed sensors: Wheel speed sensors are usually in the wheel bearing assembly, and determine the rate at which each wheel is moving. The sensors relay that information to the traction control module, which determines whether or not power needs to be shifted. Wheel speed sensors can get dirty or damaged and stop working, which prohibits the traction control module from knowing when to enable the system.Traction control module is faulty: The traction control module - which, again, is often shared with the ABS - can malfunction and break altogether, causing the system to stop working. What to expect: A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the traction control issue, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs. How important is this service? It's important to have the traction control issue investigated as soon as possible, as adverse driving conditions can arise at any time. While your car is unlikely to incur further damage from a faulty traction control system, it won't be safe to drive in rain, snow, sleet, or other inclement weather, or even possibly through pools of water on the road. Furthermore, the issue that is causing the traction control light to illuminate could also be impacting the ABS.

Left the keys in the ignition adn had AAA jump it. Now the T/C with a slash through it came on and the light that says low engine power. The car starts really rough and has no power when u drive it. WHats...


T/C light = Traction Control

Could be something going on with a wheel speed sensor. You'll have to have the ABS/TCS controller scanned for any stored trouble codes to see why the controller is turning on the light. The code(s) might help you to determine what part of the system is faulting. You'll have to take it to a shop that has a high end scan tool.

If the TC light is on, chances are there is a trouble code set and stored in the computer. You need to determine what the code is. If you take the car to a nationally recognized parts store, most will scan the computer for free, so there is no money out of pocket for you.


Actron also makes a ABS code checker called BrakeScan. Don't know how good it is, but it might be good for a DIY person.

TC Explanation:

If your vehicle is equipped with the Enhanced Traction System (ETS), this warning light should come on briefly as you start the engine. If the warning light does not come on, then have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem.
If the warning light stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your Enhanced Traction System and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly.
The Enhanced Traction System warning light may come on for the following reasons:
If you turn the system off by moving the shift lever to FIRST (1), the warning light will come on and stay on. To turn the system back on, move the shift lever back to a position other than FIRST (1). The warning light should go off. The warning light will come on when you set your parking brake with the engine running, and it will stay on if your parking brake does not release fully. If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST (1) and the warning light stays on after your parking brake is fully released, it means there is a problem with the system. If the traction control system is affected by an engine-related problem, the system will turn off and the warning light will come on. If the Enhanced Traction System warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST (1), your vehicle needs service.

WHEN YOU PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL DOES THE PEDAL SEEM TO JUMP? IF SO THE MODULE HAS SEEN A WHEEL SPEED SENSOR MPH DROP SIGNALING A BRAKE LOCK UP . OR LOSS OF WHEEL SPEED , IF THATS THE CASE THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM IS A BROKEN WIRE IN THE VEHICLE HARNESS NEAR THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR CONNECTOR USUALLY WHERE THE HARNESS MAKES A U TURN UPWARDS .

IS THE ABS LIGHT ON ALL THE TIME ORDOES IT RESET WITH A KEY CYCLE?

FIRST OF ALL THE TRACTION CONTROLL AND THE ABS SYSTEM ARE BASICALLY THE SAME SYSTEM.

THERE SHOULD BE SERVICE CODES FOR THE MALFUNCTIONS , FIRST THING IS TO RETRIEVE ALL ABS CODES THEN MONITOR WHEEL SPEED SENSOR INPUTS WHILE DRIVING

HOPE THIS HELPS
