ABS brakes, Traction Controll, Rear Air suspension, Wont Start
The ABS brakes, Traction Controll, and Rear Air suspension all stoped working at the same time and then the next day when I went to start it, it seemed like it was not getting spark/gas? not sure witch. I checked the fuses, is there something that could cause all of these problems or am I just unlucky and everything just happen to stop at the same time? I figure it has to be an electrical problem, but I don't know where to start looking.

with the lights coming on there is a code set in the abs module that needs to be checked into to find where the problem is to start diagnoises of the problem.it could be a sensor that has too much of and air gap,bad connection at the sensor,damaged wires for the system.have the code pulled from the module
Hello, If you have a Traction control button on the dash, turn it off and the motor should smooth out. You should look at the ABS sensors and internal parts on the rear brake system.
There are several reasons for your problem. It can be any or all of these. The ABS system counts the turns on each wheel. If there is debris like a deteriorated Emergency brake lining, or dust in the rear wheels, the sensor gets confused and loses count.
When the counts do not match on all 4 wheels, the ABS engages to bring them to be equal. One way is by extra braking on the fastest spinning wheel. This can activate the Traction control feature.
The Traction control feature can CHOKE the air off the engine by activating a flap in the air intake nozzle around the Air cleaner. If you think this is happening you can very temporarily disconnect the Air Intake at the Air Horn allowing your engine to breathe dirty air. Keep all the electric connectors plugged in. The motor should now run smooth.
Most likely you have a shorted wire triggering the blown fuse or a bad ABS sensor. You can run the van with the ABS light on as long as the wheels turn freely.
HAVE VECHICLE CODE SCAN,SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH ABS BRAKES AND THE TRACTION CONTROL,SEEM LIKE YOUR AIR SHOCKS ELC HEIGHT SENSOR COULD BE BAD CAUSING AIR SHOCKS TO OVER EXTEND CAUSING CAR TO RAISE HIGH ON BACK END.WHICH COULD BE THE CAUSE OF ABS AND TRACTION LIGHT TO COME ON, TO FIX THIS PROBLEM HAVE CAR CODE SCAN AND YOU CAN FIND OUT WHAT CAUSING THE ABS AND TRAC LIGHT TO TURN ON.
If brake pedal is chattering or pulsating it is most likely because you need either front or rear rotors, or both. They are rusted or out of round. If there is something wrong with either your abs or traction control,the abs or traction control light will come on & stay on. As soon as these lights come on, it automatically disables abs or traction control. If you would like to take out fuse that disables abs or traction control circuits, it will leave the lights on.You just wont have their functions. If by some strange condition your chattering goes away, then there is indeed something wrong with your abs or traction control.Fuses are labeled abs or traction either under hood or in your fuse panel in car.
the chck trac is on it means the traction controll is on so you wont get wheel spin,
abs stands for anti braking service i think or something like that its when you are driving and someone pulls out in front of you and you hit the brakes the abs kicks in so your front wheels wont just lockup and you keep sliding for ages, the abs is design so that it pumps the brakes on and off with you having to do it so you still have turning controll and should be able to avoid what ever it is your going to hit.
It could be a wheel speed sensor that went out or something... When working with the wiring, something could have just gotten crossed or tapped to get these codes as well. The compressor shouldnt be running anymore if everything was tied off properly. Take it in somewhere and have the codes cleared and that should fix the problem hopefully. I know AutoZone has a reader, but I do not know if they have they ability to clear the codes.
I hope this helps.
Climate control is the heater/a.c. systems. Multi-Point fuel injection is the type of fuel system the car has. Vented brakes have holes in the rotors to help cool them during heavy braking. Immobilizer is the anti-theft device. Electronic traction control will transfer the power to the wheels so it doesn't slip or loose traction. ABS is Anti Lock Brake system. This is so your brakes doesn't lock up during hard braking. No. 7 is the suspension system for a good ride and cornering. Not sure about No. 8 though.
