You will need to have the ABS module scanned for codes. This will need to be done with another end scan tool/code reader. Once you know what the codes are you will have a much better idea of what the problem is and what needs to be done to fix it.
If the light comes on when you start the vehicle and goes out and stays out until you start to move it is usually a speed sensor issue. Whether it is the sensor itself, the air gap between the sensor and the exciter ring, or a bad exciter ring.
If it comes on when you start the car and never goes out than that indicates that the ABS system has failed its self check. We then know that it is not an air gap or exciter ring issue and can focus on sensors, motors, solenoids, and modules as possible causes.
Trac control and ABS lights come on usually when one of your ABS wheel sensors is either bad and needs replacing or corroded and just may need cleaning. This happened to me. It was my front left abs sensor. they replaced it and al the lights went out and all good now. I also bought an OBDII that plugs into your car and the computer tells the OBDII whats wrong and what sensor it is. You also get the option to erase the codes and put out some or all the lights on your dash. Some times a glitch will light a light on the dash and resetting or erasing it with the OBDII corrects the problem. Hope this helps. God Bless :O)
Im assuming your referring to the ABS light ? Check your wires to the ABS sensors... The sensors are located on all 4 wheels.Its possible that there is dust on 1 or more of the sensors...Try cleaning them...A good undercarriage and wheel wash should work.. To reset the computer take the POS and NEG battery terminals off and touch them together and clean the terminals and put back on..If this dont work then the sensors need replaced.. Id reccomend replacing all 4 at 1 time...
what code are you getting ? I would start there and what are you refering to as D10 ???. have you checked your catylic convertor to see if possibly plugged, loosen exhaust at exhaust manifold or pull your O2 sensors out, this will cause an exhaust leak but will relieve some pressure on exhaust to see if this is indeed the exh. plugged. then drive it and see if it made a difference in shifting and power. Good Luck
unplugging the battery should clear it, try doing it for 5 or 10 minutes just in case, the only other way is to clear it with a OBD2 capable scan tool, also there could be an issue you havnt noticed and that was caused due to jammed brake. some parts stores will let you use thier scan tool provide the car is at the store, i would scan it just to double check the code then use the scan tool to clear it. most shucks/oreilleys parts store can do this
It is possible that one of the two front sensors or the wire to the sensors was inadvertently damaged when the transmission was replaced since the subframe needs to be removed in order to do the job. It is also possible that it is a fluke as ABS problems are normal for these vehicles. Check to make sure the front wheel speed sensors are still plugged in and the wiring around the connectors is in tacked.
The best thing to do is have the ABS module scanned to retrieve the trouble code(s). This will at least give you a direction to go in and start searching.
The traction control uses the ABS system to work. If there is a problem with the ABS than the traction control will automatically be turned off.
this is due to your abs sensors not working properly, the abs sensors also funtion as the traction control system. sometimes they are just dirty, sometimes the wires get brittle due to turning left and right over the years and snap. sometimes they just go bad. one bad thing is they are embedded into your wheel bearing so the whole wheel bearing needs to be replaced which is around 150 for the part. it is very easy to put on if you have the correct tools. dont be fooled by car mechanics, its no more than 1 hour for the job so ask them how much they charge per hour and bring your own part in from auto parts store. the system fails even if only one sensor is out so make sure you know which one it is, the auto parts people or even a car shop should tell you for free.
for me, i dont really like abs or tcs so if you feel the same way, dont even bother fixing it. but be sure to fix it before you try to sell the car as people wont like the lights on in your dashboard.
The dealer will charge you $1300 - $2000. Contact Module Masters. They are great to deal with. You have to ship it to Moscow, Idaho. It cost me about $15 to ship it (with box, packing, and insurance at a UPS store). They charged me $130 to rebuild it and gave me a 5 year warranty. It cost $8 to ship it back. To in total, it cost me $153....totally turn-key.
