You have a wheel bearing sensor that is bad. Take it to autozone and they can tell you which one is bad when they hook up their diagnostic equipment. You will have to replace the wheel bearing.

SOURCE: abs and trac control lights are on

It is one of your wheel bearings. The problem is easily solved by taking the car to a dealer, or having a code reader, and determining which wheel bearing is bad. The wheel bearing is under $150 and should be installed by someone with some muscle, as the bolts are torqued from the factory extremely tight in a tight location. The wheel bearing have all of your sensors for abs built into them and if that sensor goes out your computer tells the abs and traction control to shut down, hence you get the lights on on the dash.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

Have the ABS codes scanned. This will get you started in the right direction. Possibility is that one or more of the wheel speed sensors is not working or intermittent - could be wiring or connectors on these as well. Another possibility is the EBCM, Electronic Brake Control Module. I believe the EBCM will throw 1216 code in many cases. THese can be rebuilt online for about $150.00.
The more likely problem is the wheel speed sensors. THese are an integral part of the wheel hub. About $100.00 each for the part. About $250.00 each to have them replaced. They can be tested with an AC voltmeter by spinning the wheel. Also, they should read roughly 850 ohms resistance. The ABS codes will tell you which ones are not reporting.

2000 bonneville trac off light and abs light stay on


The ABS light is the Anti Lock Break system light. You may have a malfunction in there. . . Take it to your qualified brake specialist and have him check it out. completely. You may have a leak in the system, the traction control is controlled by the button on the console where you can turn it off and on. If you have tried the button, take it to a car repair service or a ugh dealership and get the problem diagnosed with advanced software. Do mess with your life, fix the brakes.

Service engine, abs, trac off


The service engine light does not affect the abs.You most likely have a broken wire in your abs system which is affected by suspension movement.A code reader which does abs codes will tell you which wheel circuit is turning on the abs light.When there is no abs available the track will turn off.

Abs, low coolant, trac off and service engine soon light comes on when running had a tune up and have the same problems please help wht else could be the reason.


multiple issues.

for abs and trac, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6003525-abs_traction_control_lights . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

for coolant light I assume the coolant level is good. If yes, remove the connector from the sensor on the reservoir. If the light goes out, replace the sensor. If light stays on, the wiring is shorted and you'll have to trace it to repair the short.

for the engine light, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

What does trac off light refer to? service engine and trac off light comes on.


Trac is the control that doesnt let your tires spin when they are not making contact with the road. Just by having your emergency brake on will light up the trac light. It also come on with your abs. If you driving on a slick road and you jam on your brakes and the tires slide a little mine will say low track on my car.

2002 Buick Century anti-lock brake problems


i recently had this problem too, except i had all the lights on (ABS, service vehicle, trac-off, AND service engine) they are all easy to fix without spending more than 20-30$ for labour (depending how much your mechanic charges you) mine did it for free and he found out why the engine light is on afterwards too. so to fix all these lights (abs, trac-off, and service vehicle you MUST get another ABS cable (i went to a garage, they were towing a GM vehicle to the junk yard so i grabbed some scissors and cut BOTH abs cables on each side (good thing i did because one was bad) and braught them to my mechanic. the reason the lights come on is probably a defect or in my case my mechanic said it was salt buildup in the wires (on the drivers side) so he cut the wire off and rewired the new one and BOOM all the lights came off (service vehicle, abs, and trac-off) now for my service engine it says catalytic converter but im trying to put some fuel system cleaner to help it out i read somewhere that this is a defect of the car, so if you dont have that light yet, SELL your car ASAP for as much as you can get for it (after fixing the lights of course) and always google (car name+recalls) in the search bar to see what youre getting into, take care
