ABS and traction control use the same sensors at the wheels so the problem may be a wire connection , loose wheel bearing varying the air gap to the sensor or a faulty sensor. Because the abs is involved I would have it checked out at the earliest for safety.

SOURCE: 2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue

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.

SOURCE: ABS and Traction control stay on after smart car is started

Although I am unfamiliar with the smart cars, it sounds like you just need to reset your computer. Remove the negative cable from your battery, then flip your lights on, pump the brakes, press the horn. What this will do is drain all the capacitors including the ones in your computer. Ultimately it will reset your computer (aka turn off the ABS and TC light) hope this is helpful and good luck

SOURCE: 2001 S Type Jaguar ABS and Traction Control fault lights on

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

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.

That's easy
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

Sounds like you have a bad speed sensor on the ABS. Have the ABS scanned for codes. If you want to test this, unplug one of the speed sensors. The ABS light should come on and disable the traction control system. Then the transmission should work fine. If it does, diagnose the ABS/Traction control system.

That sounds like one or more sensors are faulty or playing around anyway. No solution, as this could be the abs pump also.

P1000 is for check not complete after last memory clear , dont worry about it , just stick with C1175 , and most probably it is the sensor wire

Traction Warning Light & ABS light on.


one of your wheel sensors are bad. if you go to napa they will let you use a code reader for free and that will tell you which wheel it is and you can replace that sensor. they are kinda expensive @ around 100 bucks a piece.
