SOURCE: NOX SENOR

I have yet to see a car with a Nitrogen Oxides(NOx) sensor on it. However I have seen Oxygen (O2) sensors. The O2 sensor monitors the remaining amount of oxygen left in your exhaust, and tells your Engine Control Unit(ECU) how much fuel to use. The sensor looks much like a stainless steel spark plug and is found in the exhaust system. Your car being a 1991 it should only have one. It will be up stream of the Catlytic converter, maybe in the Exhaust manifold. cost between 50 and 150$us.

SOURCE: Check engine light on came on in my 2005 VW Jetta

There may be a possiblity of doing damage to the turbo if you continue to drive it this way. I would recommend either taking it to the dealer or a reputable repair shop in your area to have this repaired as soon as possible, as to not risk damaging the turbo. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Golf - O2 Sensor?

Honestly it is not very expensive to replace, but it is not extremely important. What it does is measure the oxygen/fuel level coming out of the engine. This tells the computer that the engine is either using the right air/fuel mixture or allows the computer to change the mixture slightly to allow the car to run properly. You could pull the sensor out and clean the terminal as it usually has alot of carbon build up due to its location, but this is normally a temporary fix. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Can leaky shocks on a 2006 Cadillac DTS cause the traction control light to come on


If the light is on there are DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's stored in ABS - anti - lock brakes computer . Have codes checked first , something wrong with electrical part of antilock brakes , I know, what does ABS have to do with traction control ! traction control is a function of the ABS control module . Leaking shocks ? clarify , air shocks etc.... Before you start guessing , have it check for codes .
This vehicle is equipped with the TRW 440 V antilock braking system.
The vehicle is equipped with the following braking systems:
?€¢
Antilock Brake System (ABS)


?€¢
Engine Drag Control (EDC)


?€¢
Dynamic Rear Proportioning (DRP)


?€¢
Traction Control System (TCS)


?€¢
Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES) (w/JL4)

The following components are involved in the operation of the above systems:
?€¢
Electronic brake control module (EBCM)--The EBCM controls the system functions and detects failures.


?€¢
Electronic brake control module (EBCM)--The EBCM controls the system functions and detects failures.


The EBCM contains the following components:


-
System relay--The system relay is energized when the ignition is ON and no ABS DTCs are present. It supplies battery positive voltage to the solenoid valves and pump motor.


-
Vent tube--The vent tube, located in the EBCM connector, is an opening to the internal cavity of the EBCM. It allows ventilation of the EBCM internals.


?€¢
Brake pressure modulator valve (BPMV)--The BPMV contains the hydraulic valves and pump motor that are controlled electrically by the EBCM. The BPMV uses a 4 circuit configuration with a diagonal split. The BPMV directs fluid from the reservoir of the master cylinder to the left front and right rear wheels and fluid from the other reservoir to the right front and left rear wheels. The diagonal circuits are hydraulically isolated so that a leak or malfunction in one circuit will allow continued braking ability on the other.


Important: There is a rubber isolator located under the BPMV and on the mounting studs. The rubber isolators protect the BPMV and the EBCM from vehicle vibrations.


?€¢
The BPMV contains the following components:


-
Pump motor


-
Inlet valves (one per wheel)


-
Outlet valves (one per wheel)


-
Master cylinder isolation valves (one per drive wheel)


-
Prime valves (one per drive wheel)


?€¢
Wheel speed sensors (WSS)--As the wheel spins, the wheel speed sensor produces an AC signal. The EBCM uses this AC signal to calculate wheel speed. The wheel speed sensors are replaceable only as part of the wheel hub and bearing assemblies.


?€¢
Traction control switch--The TCS is manually disabled or enabled using the traction control switch.


?€¢
Stoplamp switch--The EBCM uses the stoplamp switch as an indication that the brake pedal is applied.


?€¢
Lateral accelerometer sensor (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the lateral accelerometer sensor as an indication of the lateral acceleration of the vehicle.


?€¢
Yaw rate sensor (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the yaw rate sensor as an indication of the yaw rate of the vehicle.


?€¢
Steering wheel position sensor (SWPS) (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the SWPS as an indication of the position and rotation of the steering wheel.


This systems are very complex , your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop .

Have new brakes brake sensors all the way around new rotors also abs stability traction lights are still on how do i turn them off


Have you had the car diagnosed ? Need to have vehicle hooked up to professional type scan tool .Check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Brakes & rotors have nothing to do with electronics of the Anti-lock brakes an stability an traction control systems .Bad brakes & rotors will turn on the red brake light. The brake sensors as you call them are really wheel speed sensors . There is a EBCM - electronic brake control module , wheel speed sensors ,Plus some other thing's.
This vehicle is equipped with the DBC7.4 antilock braking system.
The vehicle is equipped with the following braking systems:
?€¢
Antilock Brake System (ABS)

The EBCM contains the following components:


-
System relay--The system relay is energized when the ignition is ON and no ABS DTCs are present. It supplies battery positive voltage to the solenoid valves and pump motor.


-
Brake pressure sensors--The EBCM contains 2 brake pressure sensors that monitor applied master cylinder pressure to the wheels. The EBCM uses the brake pressure inputs to enhance VSES.


-
Vent tube--The vent tube, located in the EBCM connector, is an opening to the internal cavity of the EBCM. It allows ventilation of the EBCM internals.


?€¢
Brake pressure modulator valve (BPMV)--The BPMV contains the hydraulic valves and pump motor that are controlled electrically by the EBCM.

?€¢
Brake pedal position (BPP) sensor--The EBCM receives a serial data message from the body control module (BCM) to indicate that the brake pedal is applied.


?€¢
Yaw rate sensor (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the yaw rate sensor to determine the rate of rotation along the vehicle's vertical axis. The yaw rate sensor is packaged with the lateral accelerometer as a single component.


?€¢
Lateral accelerometer (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the lateral accelerometer to determine the sideways acceleration of the vehicle. The lateral accelerometer is packaged with the yaw rate sensor as a single component.


?€¢
Steering wheel position sensor (SWPS) (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the SWPS as an indication of the position and rotation of the steering wheel.

Adding stabilitrak / traction control


You would need to replace the EBCM - electronic brake control module an add the yaw rate / lateral acceleration sensor . An add the steering wheel speed position sensor plus find the wiring harness that connects these Extra parts to the EBCM . You can look an see if Yaw Rate and Lateral Acceleration Sensor (JL4)

I have a 2007 they suburban taho and the stabill track light is on


The Stability System is part of the anti lock brakes ! The place to start is
Diagnostic Starting Point - Antilock Brake System
Begin the system diagnosis with Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle .The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
?€¢
The identification of the control modules which command the system


?€¢
The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit


?€¢
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.
This Is going to be Greek to you probably ! This is where a up scale scan tool is needed , or a factory one ! Your going to need to have vehicle scanned for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes ! Is the ABS light on as well ?
A sample of DTC'S
DTC C0186 00: Lateral Accelerometer Circuit

DTC C0186 5A: Lateral Accelerometer Circuit Erratic
DTC C0196 00: Yaw Rate Circuit

DTC C0196 5A: Yaw Rate Circuit Erratic
DTC C0252 00: VSES Sensor Uncorrelated
The Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES) is activated by the electronic brake control module (EBCM) and calculates the desired yaw rate and comparing it to the actual yaw rate input. The desired yaw rate is calculated from measured steering wheel position, vehicle speed, and lateral acceleration. The difference between the desired yaw rate and actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. If the yaw rate error becomes to large, the EBCM will attempt to correct the vehicles yaw motion by applying differential braking to the left or right front wheel.
This is a problem you should take to the dealer or a ASE certified repair shop ! Or you can try to reset the system by disconnecting the battery cables an touching the cable ends together for 60 seconds ! But if there is a real fault in the system ( bad sensor ) The light will come back on ! Maybe not right away ! A couple of days or weeks etc....

Track off light is on. what does that mean?


I had the problem a few weeks ago. I took the vehicle to the Scion dealership originally the computer said it was the ECU unit after replacing that my vsc and traction control light remained on. Come to find out it was the yaw rate sensor.
