There are sensors mounted behind the front wheels. Look for two small wires, running in plastic line protectors,behind each of the front wheels. There is a small connector plug that attaches to the sensors. These can get dirty and cause the problem you have. Cleaning them and using a dielectric grease might solve the problem. I have seen these get unplugged when brakes get worked on or even, on occasion, when tires get changed.

I have also seen the wires get torn apart along the undercarriage. You might want to follow them back to the main harness looking for damage.

In both circumstances you are going to want to get the car up in the air, with the tires removed and on sturdy jack stands.So you can get a clear view and have room to make any needed repair. You don't want to do this with car on it's tires.

Good Luck!

What does 'Trac" have to do with The ABS system on a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT?


Your traction control and ABS system use the same wheel speed sensors to control each system. They are separate, but use the same inputs to let the computers know what the wheels are doing.

Service engine, abs, trac off


The service engine light does not affect the abs.You most likely have a broken wire in your abs system which is affected by suspension movement.A code reader which does abs codes will tell you which wheel circuit is turning on the abs light.When there is no abs available the track will turn off.

My abs light came on along with the trac off light


Think you will be going into the shop with this one. Need to scan the ABS for codes, most likely one of the front sensors is no good. I am 99% sure they are part of the hub bearing asm. Usually its the left one

Service Vehicle soon trouble light comes on, along with ABS light and Trac Off light, but no diagnostic codes show up on diagnostic reader. How do you determine what is wrong?


If you are using an obd2 reader, make sure it has all the updates. If the check engine light is on, is should show up on reader. There is also a ABS light tester as well. It sounds like an error in the ABS/Trac cirucuits. It could be a bad pump or faulty module.

Abs light, trac light, service engine soon light 2001 Pontiac Grand Am


Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

ABS light is on and no traction light is on. I have a Pontiac Grand Prix 2001 gt. Light stays on always. I don't feel a problem with the brakes.


Check around all wheels to make sure the wires going to the wheel are intact and plugged in tightly. I had the same thing on my 2000 G.P. GT, in my case it was just a broken wire to one of the wheels.
