When both of these lights are on you should suspect a wheel sensor. Check the sensor at each wheel (look for small 2-wire plug). Make sure each one is securely plugged in and no wires are broken or bare. Also make sure no sensor has been damaged. Dealt with same issue with one yesterday and it had a sensor left unplugged after wheel service.

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

2006 equinox abs and tc lights coming on


Your abs light is more than likely caused by the hub assembly/wheel bearing sensor on the front wheels. I would take to autozone to see if they can do abs check.

Have a competent mechanic scan the codes in the ABS control. A common fail point of the 2005 Equinox is the wire harness jumper for the drivers front wheel sensor. This is a foot and a half long jumper that connects the wheel sensor to the engine compartment wire harness. It is rigidly held in place by a couple of plastic stays that create a pinch flex point just beneath the lower stay where wheel turn moves the wire against this rigid point. After about 60-80k miles, the wire begins to break down in the insulator and false wheel speed readings are read as false wheel slip indications while the ABS system tries to modulate brake pressure. This modlation creates the grinding feel. After an amount of time, the ABS computer "recognizes" this as a fault and shuts ABS and traction control off since both systems use the wheel spin input, and the dash lights light.
Although this is a pretty pricey part at a dealer, a genuine Delco replacement part can be found online often at a much more reasonable price.

Abs light and tc on my 2005 chevy equinox


Hi,

The ABS & TC circuits are related.

It's possible one of your wheel speed sensors may be either contaminated (i.e. dirt or metal filings) or faulty, or a problem with your ABS pump.

Your vehicle's OBD computer will have store the appropriate fault codes, so have your codes read by Autozone or your local Chev/GM dealership. It should only take around 15 minutes to extract the codes and will immediately identify the suspected circuit.

After hitting a bump my abs and tc lights came on in my 2005 equinox. They went of when i started the car again then came on after going over a speed bump


Hello.
The ABS, ( anti-lock break system ) has a sensor on each wheel that can come lose after hitting dips and speed bumps. If you are mecahanical you may be able to fix it yourself, if not, any auto shop can fix it in just a couple of minutes.

I'm not real sure about the tc, ( traction control ) system, sorry.

WILL IT HARM THE ENGINE OR VEHICLE IN GENERAL ON A 2001 TAHOE IF YOU CONTINUE TO DRIVE IT WITH THE ABS LIGHT AND TRACTION OFF LIGHT ON?


No you will not "harm" the vehicle.

1. The ABS fault light will mean that the anti - lock braking facility is not working. However the conventional braking system will continue to operate. Bear in mind that you now have no system that prevents you from locking up your brakes so it is all down to the driver.

2. Traction control (TC) warning. The TC function will not be working or not working as programmed. There should be a TC on/off switch or button in the vehicle. Make sure you manually disable the TC by switching the TC OFF until the problem is identified and rectified.
TC is a useful driver aid, especially in slippery road surface conditions, so take extra precautions when driving without it.

Even in good conditions the Tahoe is not a vehicle that handles well.

3. You should get the vehicle checked for the ABS and TC problem. It may only be some faulty sensors that require replacing but a proper diagnosis needs to be made.
