You will need to find out which sensor you need. Have someone check the codes that are in there, and this will lead you to the fix.

2000 bonneville trac off light and abs light stay on

The ABS light is the Anti Lock Break system light. You may have a malfunction in there. . . Take it to your qualified brake specialist and have him check it out. completely. You may have a leak in the system, the traction control is controlled by the button on the console where you can turn it off and on. If you have tried the button, take it to a car repair service or a ugh dealership and get the problem diagnosed with advanced software. Do mess with your life, fix the brakes.

Anti-lock light is on, trac off light is on, and says service trac system

ABS and traction control use some of the same components.
You would need to get the body computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with troubleshooting the two systems.

Service vehical soon anti lock and trac off comes

The computer system reset every time you turn key off. The system then does a 3 second bulb check to verify all is functioning correctly. If all is well stays off. The reason why it only turns on when moving is because the abs sensors are either not picking up any vehicle speed from one of the wheels or there is a faulty connection in wiring at one of the wheels. Need to have vehicle scanned by a good shop and verify which wheel is causing the problem. If light is on ABS and traction control systems are disabled.

Service light has come on and brake, anti lock, and trac off lights has come on whats the problem?

This is related to the anti-lock and/or traction control system. May be a controller but most likely one of the front hub sensors is bad. Modern cars mostly use a sealed hub instead of the old timken taoer bearing system of years past. The hub is not difficult to change if you are handy and they can be found relatively inexpensive on the internet.

My 1999 Monte Carlo trac light comes on during regular driving? Why?

the trac light is designed to come on to let you know that the traction control is working, it works by engaging the anti-lock brake system to keep the front wheels from spinning, it will also come on if you are stopping hard enough to engage the anti- lock brakes, this also could be a sign that your brakes are getting worn and might need replaced

What if the traction control and anti lock break system light is on

You most likely have a problem with one of the wheel speed sensors, the related wiring, or the ABS system itself. The traction control and ABS system both work together and rely on the same input information to work. A fault in the ABS system will cause both the ABS and TRAC control lights to illuminate and both systems will be disabled until the fault is gone. I would have a good service facility or dealer look at this one. One quick check you can do is to make certain that the brake fluid master cylinder is properly filled with brake fluid because if it is low enough it can also cause the systems to be disabled.

Why would my service engine light, trac off light, and anti lock break lights go on at different times when I drive?

well for one the traction and antilock lights are the same sensor. If the anitlock brake sensor goes bad and cannot count your wheel rotations then your traction control system will not work either. AS for the service engine soon light that could be part of this system also or it could be totally different you wont know until you get your code read

Warning light on are trac off, anti-lock, brakes, service engine

You need to have the abs system scanned for codes. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor on one of wheels.

Traction system

Hi there.Whats happening here is an abs sensor in the wheel has failed.In doing so it will turn off your traction control because your abs breaks and traction control work together .If maybe you have an auto zone near by they can scan your break system to find what abs sensor is causing the problem.I hope this clarified some for ya..Auto zone will scan the car for free so that won't cost you anything.You can drive the car you just wont have abs and you should get it fixed.Again I hoped I helped you and if you need further assistance I'll be here to help you..Have a great day..
