check your tire pressure,check steering linkages, if everything ok, you might want to have an alignment check to get alignment corrected.

hi you can only reset these with a diagnostic tool you can purchase cheap ones on the net, look for OBD2 or OBD ll tools....ebay is a good place, but do not get the ones that connect to computer get a hand held one...hope this helps

I got a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravda and has smart track that works when it wants to the service light comes on once and awhile. When I really need 4wd it doesn't kick in Help


There are three different transfer case's ! Which of these does your olds have ?

Transfer Case - NVG 136-NP4 (One Speed Automatic)
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
Transfer Case - NVG 236 (Two Speed Automatic)

All three have an electronic control module ! When the light is on DTC'S are stored in the transfer case shift control module .

SERVICE indicator (AWD/4WD) lamp
The SERVICE indicator (AWD/4WD) lamp is an integral part of the instrument cluster and cannot be serviced separately. This lamp is used to inform the driver of the vehicle of malfunctions within the automatic transfer case (ATC) system. The SERVICE indicator (AWD/4WD) lamp is controlled by the transfer case shift control module via a Class 2 serial data message.

There are three speed sensors on the Automatic Transfer Case (ATC), two on the rear output shaft and one on the front output shaft. Each speed sensor is a Permanent Magnet (PM) generator. The PM generator produces a pulsing AC voltage. The AC voltage level and number of pulses increases as speed increases.
Vehicle Speed Sensor
One of the two speed sensors on the rear output shaft is the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). It is an input to the vehicle control module (VCM). The VCM sends this information to the transfer case shift control module via the Class 2 Serial Data bus.
Rear Propshaft Speed Sensor
The transfer case shift control module converts the pulsating AC voltage from the rear propshaft speed sensor to a Rear Propshaft Speed in RPMs to be used for calculations. The Rear Propshaft Speed can be displayed with a scan tool.
Front Propshaft Speed Sensor
The transfer case shift control module converts the pulsating AC voltage from the front propshaft speed sensor to Front Propshaft Speed in RPM to be used for calculations, and to monitor the difference between the front and rear propshaft sensor speed. It is also used in the AUTO 4WD mode of operation to determine the amount of slip and the percent of torque to apply to the front axle. The Front Propshaft Speed can be displayed with a scan tool.

Transfer Case Encoder Motor
The transfer case encoder motor is a permanent magnet D.C. motor and gear reduction assembly. The encoder motor is controlled with a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) signal provided by the transfer case shift control module. It is located on the left hand side (drivers side) of the transfer case. When activated it turns the sector shaft of the transfer case to shift the transfer case. This circuit consists of a power supply relay (Motor Feed A circuit ) that supplies voltage to the motor. The Motor Control B circuit is a PWM driver that varies the duty cycle to control the amount of current through the motor to ground.

There are a number of codes that can set .
DTC C0300 Rear Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0305 Front Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0308 Motor A/B Circuit Low
DTC C0309 Motor A/B Circuit High
DTC C0310 Motor A/B Circuit Open
DTC C0315 Motor Ground Circuit Open
DTC C0374 General System Malfunction
DTC C0376 Front/Rear Shaft Speed Mismatch
DTC C0550 ECU Malfunction
DTC C0611 VIN Information Error

You don't want to just start replacing parts , that could cost $$$$$$ . You could check connections at all the sensors an the control module , but other then that ,well . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Service 4x4 light is on...2000 gmc jimmy...replaced the switch on dash but nothing works..what is my next step to fix issue?


Two speed automatic or is it two speed selectable ? Either case the first thing would be have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Both are computer controlled .
DTC B2725 ATC Mode Switch Circuit Malfunction
DTC C0300 Rear Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0305 Front Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0308 Motor A/B Circuit Low
DTC C0309 Motor A/B Circuit High
DTC C0310 Motor A/B Circuit Open
DTC C0315 Motor Ground Circuit Open
DTC C0323 T-Case Lock Circuit Low
DTC C0324 T-Case Lock Circuit High
DTC C0327 Encoder Circuit Malfunction
DTC C0362 4LO Discrete Output Circuit High
DTC C0367 Front Axle Control Circuit High
DTC C0374 General System Malfunction
DTC C0376 Front/Rear Shaft Speed Mismatch
DTC C0387 Unable to Perform Shift
DTC C0550 ECU Malfunction
DTC C0611 VIN Information Error

This for the two speed selectable
The transfer case shift control module normally has battery voltage supplied to it at all times through the battery positive voltage circuit (CKT 40). When the ignition is ON, the transfer case shift control module conducts a self-test to determine if it retains the same memory it had when the ignition was last turned OFF. This self-test indicates whether the RAM standby power supply to the transfer case shift control module pin C6 was interrupted, which would result in clearing DTC's from memory. If the self-test fails the transfer case shift control module sets DTC 1.

You can check codes without a scan tool on this two speed selectable system . Do you know what the DLC is ? Under the steering wheel , connector to plug a scan tool into ?
Important: Check the transfer case shift control module for DTCs. The transfer case shift control module is not a class 2 device. DTCs are displayed on the transfer case shift control switch. Use the following four steps to obtain DTCs.
Turn OFF the ignition for 10 seconds.
Connect PIN 13 on the data link cable (DLC) to a ground. The DLC is located in the cab under the instrument panel on the driver's side.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Observe the transfer case shift control switch select buttons for flashing codes.
DTC 001
DTC 002
DTC 003
DTC 004

2007 xterra had trans rebuilt VDC light on constant and slip will come on and the go off no codes sowing or ABS?


I know this VDC is commonly due to a steering angle sensor.
You need to use an ABS scan tool and check for the following codes.
C1143 (steering angle sensor circuit)
C1144 (steering angle sensor signal)
C1156 (steering angle sensor com cir)
C1163 (steering angle sensor safe)

How to reset sensor


The steering angle sensor is faulty and should be replaced. Once replaced it will need to be coded with a special tool. There is not a way to reset the sensor without the special tool.

Dsc warning light on , bmw e46


Dynamic Stability Control....a derivitave of ABS / Traction control. The control unit that monitors the dynamics will most likely be sensing a difference in the measured wheel speeds. Possibly defective ABS sensor, wiring, ABS exciter ring, ABS module or steering angle sensor. Can also be triggered by wheel spin.
Have a diagnostic scan done ( cost £30 - £50 approx at good local garage) to read the fault codes first. If you get a fault code relating to "ABS module pressure sensor" the module requires replacement (common issue). Used to be a £1400 job, but repair kit now available from dealer for £180 ish and 2 hours to fit.

2005 dodge sprinter van with dtc p2240


2002 sprinter, code # P2240 = abs steering angle sensor can message implausible, this can be due to a bad steering angle sensor or can bus circuit open. you will need to do some testing and a scan tool would be needed to see sensor readings. take a look at the connector and the wiring,CAN is a controller area network, this is the computer system, the way it communicates.
