Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

My ABS, Parking and Service Engine Soon light is on. When I start my car the Service Engine Soon light is immediately on. Then in about 3 seconds the ABS and Parking light comes on. The car seems to be running fine even though these lights are on. Is there anyone that could help with a solution before I damage my care without even knowing it? It is a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE. Help much appreciated.

I have this same problem and had it checked. It is the wheel sensor. Mine is the passenger front right wheel sensor. According to the mechanic I take it to the GrandAm's are known for this. The part is about $40.

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.

The service light means something is wrong with the car and it needs attention now. Get the codes checked and that will tell you what is wrong with it.

What does the service engine light mean on a 2015 Ford Edge


Service Engine Soon

If the Service Engine Soon indicator light stays lit after you've started the engine, the On Board Diagnostics system (OBD) has detected a malfunction of the vehicle emissions control system. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
If indicator light is blinking, an engine misfire may be occurring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Drive in a moderate fashion (avoid heavy acceleration and deceleration), and have your vehicle serviced immediately.*
The Service Engine Soon indicator light illuminates when the ignition is first turned on (prior to engine start) in order to test the bulb, as well as indicate whether the vehicle is ready for Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) testing.
Normally, the Service Engine Soon light will stay on until the engine is cranked, then turn itself off if no malfunctions are present. However, if after 15 seconds this light blinks eight times, it means that the vehicle is not ready for I/M testing.Check this link out Gary.

ABS light stays on if car is started with parking brake engaged.


The ABS light illuminates when there is an "out of specification" condition. From your description, it sounds like your parking brake cable may require tightening, or there may be an issue where the rear brakes are not properly releasing when the parking brake is released. With car that is nearly 20 years old, it is not inconceivable that the rear brakes and parking brake assembly may require regular service.

A good first step would be to have error codes read out by a local mechanic or auto parts store. This may give you a better indication of the specific problem. In any case, ANY brake warning should be taken VERY SERIOUSLY and corrected IMMEDIATELY, as you may have a potentially dangerous potential of catastrophic brake failure. PLEASE GET THE ISSUE FIXED RIGHT AWAY!

ABS/Parking Brake?Service Engine Lights are on But Runs Great


Does ABS work properly? Get on dirt road and try to lock brakes (do this carefully insuring no police car tailgating,lol) Could be bad wheel speed sensor. Check codes with scan tool capable of reading ABS and trans codes.

Parking light (repair light) came on with abs, trac off and service engine soon lights. Bearings are fine, but there could be a front caliper problem,


There is a problem with one of your speed sensors, or the ABS module itself. Get it checked out to know for sure what is going on.

Replaced braked pads - now VDC and Slip Lights are on


I would take the car to almost any auto parts store and ask them to check the ODB II computer for codes and to reset the "Check engine light". Get the code that they tell you and it should go a long way to pointing you in the right direction to fixing this problem. It might also be that when you pumped the brakes that you somehow set a code in the computer from the ABS system and now that you have the brakes pumped up and working correctly resetting the Check engine light might fix your problem.

Good luck! Write back with any code you get and I'll see if I can help you figure out what the problem might be.
