    A repair manual would give the procedure for reading the fault code. It usually is a series of blinking flashes of the trouble light on the dash.

Abs and tcs lights on what do they stand for?


ABS stands for anti lock brake system.
TCS stands for traction control system.

I recommend having your abs system diagnosed for faulty sensors, control module, etc. With the abs light on the traction control system is designed to disable because it utilizes the abs system to automatically help control your vehicle in loss of traction situations.

Hy guys, just bought a saab 900 S. Just wanted to know that when the TCS light says OFF does this mean its OFF or do i have to turn this warning light off for the TCS to be OFF? Please forgive my...


Traction control is on all the time, as soon as you start the car. If you push the button, you are turning it off. In other words, when the light is on , the tcs is off.

1997 Saab 900: ABS light has been on for awhile, now check engine, and check gearbox lights are on. The car will go into limp home mode and all gauges will go nuts and then it will be fine.


i have had that problem myself . i replaced the electrical part of the ignition switch and it solved those problems. should be done by experienced technician. not a simple job for beginner.you must remove center console and switch is under shifter assembly

Why does my TCS and ABS lights come on while driving? I can find no button to not use these options. I drive a 2001 Hyundai Sante Fe. Are they supposed to come on automatically?


no theres a problem with the abs, when abs doesnt work it turns on both those lights, you have to have computer scaned to get codes to diagnose the problem, it maybe just a wheel sensor. you cant turn it on or off, but you can still drive like that you just wont have abs trac-control when lights on computer shuts it down, so its like you shut it off, if you dont need it then dont fix it,wont affect running of engine .good luck.

TCS and ABS lights are on and don't work as well as my cruise control


I am sure that 1 of the ABS sensor is dead. You need to get them scan to see which is bad.

Engine dies when anti lock light comes on


The ABS light should only come on when there is a problem in the ABS system: a wheel sensor or hydraulic unit problem.

The ABS system shouldn't be interconnected to the engine system so that an ABS fault shuts down the engine. Are you sure as to cause and effect? Could a shorting out of the ignition switch (thereby switching off the engine) be lighting the ABS lamp?

Get a wiring diagram and check for good grounds at the appropriate locations for a 1990 SAAB; also check for possible shorting out of the ignition switch under fault conditions.

The best source of info on this car is the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon!

16 valve manual: http://www.amazon.com/Saab-900-Valve-Service-Manual/dp/0837603137

8 valve manual :http://www.amazon.com/Eight-Official-Service-Manual-1981-1988/dp/0837603102

The ABS system is complex, and best worked on by a trained and trusted professional.

Hope this points you in the right direction!

Brake? Problem with 01 Saab 9.3


to begin i dont know what it means to say expensive or not how ever, all the lights at the same time could only mean one thing the problem could be in one of the diodes in your alternator is bad thus turning on all the lights on the dash board,

now regarding your brakes especially on saab;s shake or vibration is caused by uneven surface on the brake rotors (usualy the front) my suggestion is to replace the front rotors and the brake pads at the same time.
