Question about 2008 Lincoln MKX

1 Answer

Warning lights stay lit-

The ABS, and traction control lights are illuminated on my dash.. To boot, now the low tire pressure light has come on, even though the tires are properly inflated. the dealer says it sounds like the alternator is going bad. Could this be alternator related, or is it a sensor?

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.

I've had the same type problems before and it turned out to be caused by my weakening alternator, if able to do so I would suggest, to begin ruling out causes, remove the alternator and take it to an auto parts store that offers free testing and have the test performed.

When you "fill" the tires they must be within 3 lbs of each other or the tire pressure warning light will come on. If the tires are "filled" correctly and the tire pressure light still comes on, you may have a tire pressure sensor that has gone bad. You would then have to take your car in to the dealer or tire shop to determine which tire sensor is bad.
Good luck.

My airbag warning light is permanantly on


Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) 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)

Low Tire Pressure Light, ABS light, Trac Off Light and Service Traction Control


I assume this is a Ford vehicle. Start by having the rear axel serviced At the dealership. There is probably metal dust on the magnetic speed sensor, that triggers off of the ring gear inside the axel housing, causing the fault warning lights on the dash. Run an OBDII scan with a print out while at the dealer. Of coarse fix the tire.

Show symbols of warnings on 2003 audi


If you have access to a VAG-com cable you can probably find out more specific info.

Could you possibly take a picture of it and upload it? Also, have you read the manual? Go through to the instrument cluster section and look for the symbol. Could be some like this...

2_15_2012_1_44_08_pm.jpg

This icon is a Low Tire Pressure Warning light. This light comes on if your vehicle's tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) detects a tire that is more than 25 percent underinflated. Driving on a low tire can be dangerous because it increases the risk of a tire blowout. A low tire can also cause your vehicle to brake unevenly, pull to one side, handle poorly and get reduced fuel mileage. If the TPMS Low Tire Warning light is on, check the air pressure in your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the recommended pressure.

The other choice sound as Traction Control light. It normally lights if the car detects slippage and engages the ESP. It will stay lit if you press the ESP button on the center stack of the dash. If it stay lit all the time regardless then it means something in the ESP system is broken, but I don't have the expertise to know what...maybe ABS sensor(s), but I honestly don't know.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day
