Since it only happens on left turns leads me to believe that one or more of the wheel speed sensors is going bad.

Your traction control looks at a difference in wheel speeds and kicks in when a set wheel speed difference is seen. The system is just doing its job

The following lights keep coming on then turning off- service brake assist, abs and service traction contol.


These are WARNING lights! They are trying to warn you that there is a malfunction in your brake and traction control systems. The most common problem would be that one of your wheel speed sensors are not working properly. The only way to find out for sure is to access the computer system data and find out why it has been turning the lights on. (There will be fault codes stored in memory)

I just recently purchased a 2007 Ford Focus SES that had only 75000 km. I have never driven a car with traction control on it. We had a snow storm, and when I accelerated to about 45 km per hour, I had a...


All vehicles will slide in the snow. Traction control or not. What traction control does, in simple terms...Is when your wheel start to slip, which is detected by some sensors, it lowers the vehicles throttle position, slows the RPM's down, even if your foot is still on the gas, for a matter of seconds, until the wheels stop slipping. So when you feel or hear your vehicles engine slowing down on its own, its best to just let off the gas and let it go for a couple seconds. A way to test the traction control...From a stop, if you are in the snow, and you push the gas down a good bit, make it spin, and the vehicle should seem to power down on its own, while the light comes on, if it does not do this, then traction control would not be working. Hope this helped.

Yes,the brake switch does help control the traction control.If your switch is bad then you will have standard braking.This is important to get fixed as you do not want ANY problems with your braking and traction.Hope this helps.

Antilock and traction contol on and off for no reason 0-10mph .2005 buick rendevouz.has new brake bearings/sensors.


take it back to whomever did the repair and have them fix for free. I suspect the new sensors are wrong, installed wrong, or something else. These sensors tell the brake and traction control computers what to do.
