SOURCE: abs light/traction control light

You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.

SOURCE: 2005 impala ls the abs light and the traction control light comes

You'll need to have the codes read from the computer. You will have a code that indicates one of the front wheel sensors is bad. This could be the case, but they are very expensive as they are built into the wheel bearing assemblies. It is more likely that the wiring harness between the frame and the part of the front spindle that holds the harness, has broken internally. It is a very common problem and can be repaired with a new wiring harness section or by tracking down the fault and repairing it.

SOURCE: My traction control light and my abs lights keep

The abs is your anti-lock braking system. It may work with your traction control light, I'm not sure. But you apparently have a problem with your anti-lock brakes. It could be the hydraulics or it could be the brakes themselves. I would have it checked out.

It's your map sensor. It's either dirty or bad. You can try cleaning it first, before you pay to replace it.

Clean it with electronics parts cleaner (you can get it at radio shack)


Here's a bit more info about it:

2011 chevy impala traction control


There are a few reasons this might happen. Believe it or not it could be as simple as a loose gas cap. That can cause a false reading in the throttle position sensor, and activate the traction control. Remove the gas cap and put it back on making sure to tighten it until it "clicks". Another reason may be a faulty throttle position sensor, or it has a glitch, thus activating thr traction control. Try the "Old Fashioned" fix of disconnecting the battery for about an hour, to reset the computer. After you reconnect it, turn the key to the ON position but don't start it. Slowly press the accellerator to the floor and release. Turn the key back off, wait a few seconds then start the car. This should take care of the glitch, if not it's most likely the throttle position sensor needs to be replaced.

Electronic throttle control can't start jeep


Electronic throttle control (ETC) is an automobile technology which severs the mechanical link between the accelerator pedal and the throttle. A Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is used to control traction control, fuel injections, etc.

My check engine light doesn't come on but my check trac light comes on but goes off


No, your check trac light is used to monitor the traction control system. It is sensing an issue in the traction control system, which is pretty complex. There may be a code saved in the computer that a dealer could pull for you.

2008 ford escape abs and traction control light is on, if the car sets over night the traction control light and abs lite doesn't come on until a few minutes and after the car sits around awhile the...


2008 Escape has a terrible reputation for ABS light and traction control light being. All due to broken ABS tone ring cracked and out of position flopping on frt bearing. Go to local AutoZone store and they will scan this to find which wheel has the broken tone ring. The replacement ring is cheap in the $7 range. It is labor that will sicken you as this ring must be pressed on after the front half shaft is removed. Not a driveway job if you are considering DYI.

Traction control


Traction Control system adjusts your throttle and braking automatically to help keep your car from slipping on wet/snowy roads. If the light flashes momentarily then that means it is doing the job properly. If the light flashes constantly or stays on then it indicates a problem with the traction control or ABS system and could pose a safety concern.

TRACTION CONTROL.


that is what it is desgined to do - reduce acceleration and apply the brakes intermittently when the wheels spin. You have a switch you cn push to disable it. You need to disable each time you start car. See owner manual.

06-10: Traction Control 1996 Contour, Mystique Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Traction Control System The optional traction control system is designed to control wheel spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces. Traction control system is available only with anti-lock brakes. The traction control system includes the following components:
  • Hydraulic control unit.
  • Throttle control actuator (9N825).
  • Traction control switch.
  • Traction control warning indicator.
  • Front brake anti-lock sensor (2C204).
  • Rear brake anti-lock sensor (2C190).
The traction control system operates as follows:
  • System functions by transferring torque from the spinning wheel to the wheel with the most traction.
  • This is achieved by applying the brake at the spinning wheel through the hydraulic control unit or reducing the throttle opening.
  • Traction control braking and throttle control occur at vehicle speeds up to 50 km/h (30 mph).
  • At vehicle speeds above 50 km/h (30 mph), only throttle limiting control is used.
  • If speed control is operating when traction control system engages the traction control system will disengage speed control through the use of a speed control relay. This action is the same as applying the brake pedal with speed control engaged.
1996 contour
Traction Control Switch The traction control switch is located on the instrument panel, left of the steering column.
