ABS light comes on and driver side rear tire does not spin

When I am driving on the snow my ABS light will come on and it will not go off. After it comes on the rear driver side tire does not spin. If I stop the car and turn it off the ABS light will be gone out and my wheel spins again.

Why is my trac off light on


It is the anti lock brake system. First, look at the ABS. It will come on for a bad wheel sensor or broken wire. This will also throw the trac light on. ABS is on because the computer senses the one tire is trying to stop or lock up. this releases the brake pressure. On the traction light(which should also throw the ABS light), one tire is spinning faster that another. This can happen on gravel, sand or snow/ice. When you turn the key on, do you have an ABS light on, then goes off? Same with a trac light. If you do, then you have a bad wheel sensor. Scan it and replace it.

When my car is stuck in the snow and doesnt seem to get traction only one wheel spins and not the other and its front wheel drive wouldnt both spin?


No, even a 4x4 will have only 1 wheel that will spin on each axle in this instance. It's called a floating differential. For stock vehicles with non locking differentials like you have, both cannot spin or have full power at the same time. Hard to explain on this, but picture your car making a hard right turn. Both front wheels would be spinning at different speeds because of the turn. The passenger side tire is spinning much slower than the drivers side tire, therefore if both were spinning at the same time, your tires would chirp and skip on the pavement which would eventually ruin your differential. In offroad applications, we WANT the differentials locked and turning at the same time with true 4x4. But in normal everyday vehicles, even standard stock 4x4's, only 1 tire will do the spinning per axle unless it has possitraction or full locked axle. Clear as snow?

Abs light rear wheel locking


I would say it is more likely that your wheel bearing hub locked up and caused the light to come on. You could have a severe brake fault too. Either one you should have had some noises or other indicators of the problem. Good luck, don't drive the vehicle until you get to a garage.

2006 cadillac abs and traction control light on and grinding when my tires spin


You can thank the Federal Govt for the Trac Control that is
imbeded into the ABS Braking System

I have that on my 2004 Lincoln LS & sorry I ordered it

On snow it cuts off injectors & slams on rear brakes

Total Waste & useless technology from my 1960's
perspective. I live in the US but grew up in Canada
so I have lots of experience in snow,more in NJ than Ont

I have yet to figure a way to disconnect it using the wiring

My daughter just called. she said she had a "track on" light and heard clunking?


Track/traction light comes on when the ABS gets activated, the reasons could be low air pressure in tires, diffrent size of tires or VSS vehicle speed sensor wire loose or broken. If the rotation of tires are not the same the ECM thinks the vehicle is going into slip and activates the ABS so the driver can stear easier. ABS could also kick in if its raining or snowing.

2005 Kia Sorento - on dry pavement going forward in 4 wheel drive at slow speed turning left the rear wheel driver side seems to be trying to go reverse, can hear is catching or locking on the road,...


you shouldnt use 4x4 on dry road its made for pulling or snow mud etc type situations if you feel its ok then check tire size are they all the same size tires and the pressure all the same if you dont have a check eng light on then there is nothing wrong with the 4x4 but dont forget all wheel drive works with abs tcm if one wheel spins faster or slower then the rest it puts on the abs to slow it down or the trans shifts up to speed it up so there are a few things to check

My 2008 Mustang V6 will not run right when it's snowing. If the snow is falling from the sky, My engine will stumble and kick and the engine and a wrench light will come on, than the RPM's will start...


Did you get the codes when the wrench came on

You may be spinning in the snow and the ABS is being
activated, in a less than desirable way

I wish I could turn mine off in the Lincoln LS
on a bad snowy day.
That ford abs system is useless in winter
You can't even use the vehicle, it slams on the rear
brakes,then starts to cut cylinders.

I want to go back to the 1960's

How does 4 wheel drive work?


Hi there , in order for your 4 wheel to work you have to drive a couple feet for everything to lock. If you are already stuck and you put it into 4 wheel, it won't engage. hope this helps you out
