Question about Cars & Trucks

Don't go back to that shop, as they failed to
diagnose the real issues
Try a different shop & explain everything in
detail, so no more parts are installed based
on a code
You need factory manuals to follow the proper charts,
to test vehicle systems.
There is no way both front wheel speed sensors
failed at the same time, plus the abs motor
One of the 3 maybe,all 3 no way
Someone was guessing at your expensive

An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.

I would go with the ABS module, if the shop is wrong make them fix what the real problem is for free, is this a Jag dealer?

Hi First I suggest that you get a diagonostic check on ABS system. and then a visual inspection of the brakes. Warped brake rotors do not make noice, but the steering will start to judder when brakes applied at around speeds from 40 up . Possible cause that the vehile picked up something from road such as nylon/ plastic/stone Mike

ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.
