its probably a wheel speed sensor or " " harness. if you replace your hub assembly it will take care of the problem. a new hub will run you between $100-$130. its an easy fix if you have a little mechanical knowledge. i dont know what labor would cost but if you know how to change your brakes you can figur it out.

SOURCE: 2006 Monte Carlo

Here's how to override the shift lock on a 2006 Monte Carlo. First, remove the top of the shift console by pulling up on the plastic piece directly in front of the hinged cover. This is the piece that has the cup holders molded into it and it is held in place by 4 clips (i.e. it will pop back into place with no tools).

Next, shine a flashlight down into the console to the right of where the shift lever passes through (passenger's side). You'll see a wiring clip with 4 or 5 wires going into it. Directly behind this clip you can see a metal shaft with a flared top that looks like a button. This is the shift lock override button. Reach in behind the wiring clip with your right hand and press this button in. With the engine running, hold the button in with your right hand, press on the brake, and shift out of park with your left hand.

Now you can drive the car to your mechanic (or to your own garage) to find out why the shift lock solenoid is not working. On mine it was obvious. A wire going into that clip near the override button came loose and there was no power to the shift lock solenoid. I removed the clip, reattached the wire, and replaced the clip. Problem solved, fixed for free!

Don't waste your time looking for a headlamp relay. You will not find one. 1983 Monte Carlo does not use a headlamp relay. Your problem is most likely a defective headlamp dimmer switch. It is located about halfway down the upper left side of the steering column. It is secured by the same screws that mount the ignition switch. It is activated by a metal rod that pushes down on it when you pull back on your turn signal lever. It looks like the picture below.

ABS and service traction light came on while coming to a stop on an icy road.


This is probably normal as on ice or snow your wheels will slip and both the traction control and ABS will activate. Does your brake pedal vibrate a bit. It also means you are probably going to fast for road conditions

2003 monte carlo a/c works of and on,already put freon in twice and the security light omes on and also the traction active light comes on


Re the a/c. Get a can of red tek sealer. make sure the engine is cold or you won't get the connector on to the low side port to seal properly. Follow the insrtuctions that comes with the can. Just adding the refrigerant doesn't stop the leak

Turn signals and traction control are not working properly.


I had the same problem with mine.  All you have to do is replace the hazzard switch.  It costs about 40 bucks for the switch, and takes about ten minutes to replace.  Just take off the dash cover and swap them out.
Hope I helped!
