The torque converter clutch circuit may be at fault. The best way to determine the problem is to have a scanner/computer to read check engine codes.

SOURCE: Service Active Handling, ABS and Traction Control Lights on

I have had exactly the same problem on and off for 3 years now - and just solved it last week thanks to another computer site. Remove and disassemble both grounds from the top of both the left and right frame rails adjacent to the front corners of the engine block. Completely clean the green corrosion from the internal parts with fine sandpaper and add dielectric grease then re-assemble. Clean the mounting bolt and frame hole while you're at it. Sounds time consuming and difficult, but it ain't. No more than 45 minutes combined. I am a technical airhead so if I can do it so can you. What clued me in was the problem always occurred around wet or humid weather. Also, the clock would always lose time overnite. That has ceased also. Good luck. Anyone know why my left headlite, when deployed, vibrates and shimmys??? Sully ptsully@roadrunner.com

SOURCE: my 2002 impala's service traction control light

Traction control only works when one wheel is spinning faster than the other it trys to even them out so it wont spin...sometimes if one of the wheels come off the ground in an uneven area or if you take a turn too fast and one wheel turns when the other one dont it is designed to operate.
I would remove all wheels and check the braking system...Is it 4 wheel disc or rear drum ?
If it has rear drums you could have a wheel cylinder leak that will sometimes lock the wheel because of fluid contamination....This would cause both lights to come on...If you find no problems
sometimes the abs sensor builds up fragments on the magnet and makes the light come on...
or if the abs sensor is not close enough to the exciter ring it will make the light come on because it will be out of adjustment.....all you do is press the sensor inward until it barely touches the ring and it will adjust itself....You can sometimes clean the magnet if it is contaminated and make the light go off ( only after you reach 6 to 15 mph. it will go off ).If it dont go off you have to buy a sensor.
Also make sure all tires have same amount and plenty of air to keep vehicle in balance/level.

What does service traction control light mean? And service stabil track light mean?


Have the car scanned for trouble codes at a local auto parts store for free. If it is related to a wheel speed sensor, the sensor is replaced as part of the wheel hub assembly. Normally, the wheel nearing makes noise that gets louder as the parts go bad. The wheel speed sensor picks up these vibrations before they can be heard. The abnormal noises confuse the abs and traction control computer. An easy way to verify this condition is that when you first state the vehicle, all the trouble lights are dark. Once the vehicle starts moving, the light show begins.

Wheel hub swap on this vehicle can be done in one day on both front wheels. Typically, when one side fails, the other is not far behind.

Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

My VCS trac and VCS OFF light is on.. is it ok to drive


Probably yes, just keep in mind that those systems are disabled while the lights are on, you have no traction or skid control, I would recommend having the toyota dealer scan the system to see what the trouble codes are, Toyota has issued several sevice bulletins for these lights being on and there may be a special sevice campaign open that would apply to your vehicle, if so you may get this taken care of at no charge to you.

My dash light keep flashing service ride control. what do i need to do. It a 1994 cadillac surdevillie. please give me some advice. thanks for your help in advance.


the service light control could mean you need new struts or something on the suspension area. it could also mean the airbags need sevicing. Get an error code from AutoZone or such store free and go from there.

I have a 2004 alero with 3 lights on, EFT light, Sevice engine soon, and Anti-brake lights. what does this mean?


I'm not sure what the EFT light is - guessing traction control. The components making up this system are the wheel speed sensors, and the EBCM, Electronic Brake Control Module.

Scan the ABS codes on the car and that will help. Here are some points of failure:
1) Sometimes just having improper tire inflation can cause this issue.
2) One or more of the wheel speed sensors are inttermittant/bad - easily tested.
3) The EBCM is bad - can have it rebuilt online for $150.00.

The ABS codes will help is diagnosing this issue.
