I have airbag warning light on it flashes once followed by nine flashes then stays on. How do I fix


Guess, wild guess, that your airbag is not functional? Maybe you should do a scan to your car's computer..
A general warning, whe any of those light turns on and you can't find any explanation, is to do a computer scan.

Why is my abs ans ets light on What does it mean


The most probable cause for the ETS (Electronic Traction Control System) light is the ABS light. When there is a problem in the ABS, ETS is disabled.

The ETS uses ABS data to help control the ETS system. You will need to have the ABS computer scanned for codes.

This light usually comes on if you have a failed wheel speed sensor but these vehicles are common for the ABS module to fail causing the same problem. You can back probe the wires comming out of each wheel speed sensor with the wheel lifted in the air and check for ac voltage as you spin the wheel.

What ever sensor does not put out voltage needs to be replaced if they all seeem to work it is likely the ABS module. But before you replace any parts you would want to have the ABS module checked for codes at one of your local shops that has a high end scan tool that can access those codes.

Hope this helps and just 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.

What does the ETS off light on the dash mean


Hello there
let me try to explain it the best way i can

If you are talking about the light coming on when you are driving in slippery conditions, this is normal. If you are talking about it staying on all the time, the ets is either turned off or you have another problem. Let?s take a moment and explain why the electronic traction control which is called Enhanced Traction System (ETS) warning light will turn on when the engine computer sees a problem. The ETS system monitors wheel speed via the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS). If the ETS system sees a wheel spinning due to snow, ice, rain etc., the ETS computer sends a request to the vehicle?s engine computer to reduce torque. The engine computer responds with a combination of strategies. In the engine computer?s bag of tricks to stop wheel spin it can perform any one or combination of the following; cut fuel off by trimming or turning off fuel injectors, ****** the spark timing or up shift the transmission. In the days of old we just let up on the gas pedal. Now the computer does it for you. If you have an engine running problem it is more of a problem than you realize. The engine computer is the high command center. The engine computer will work and respond to information from the other computers in the vehicle. But in the event there is a system or running problem that the engine computer is responsible for, ?it will? lock out all of the other vehicle computers. If there is an engine running problem that causes the engine computer to store a code and turn on the ?Check Engine? light guess what computer doesn't talk to the others? The engine computer. The ETS computer gets all put out when this occurs and turns its warning light on in protest. So, there you have it. If the check engine light is on the ETS warning light will come on as well and the ETS system will not operate until the engine computer problem is corrected.

The "ETS" light is on what does that mean?


EST - Enhanced Traction System

This light should come on briefly as you start the engine.
When the warning light is on, the system will not limit wheel spin.
There should be a button to turn it on or off, for the system to be working the light should be off, if the light is just staying on you need to have it services.
Hope this was very helpful.

ETS


Ets is the warning light for the traction control. It must have malfunctioned. It operates along with the ABS. You will need a code read from the control unit to determine what the problem is. Usually a wheel speed sensor. If you are up to it you could disconnect each wheel sensor and read the ohms across the terminals. All should have similar readings. If one is wildly different, replace it. There is a slight change you may still have to get the light extinguished by a dealer though.

Dash warning lights


ets stands for enhance traction control. You have a code in your computer. It can be numerous concern. you need to take it to someone who has a scanner to read codes. Most likely a ABS (antilock brake) code.
