I put my 1994 3.8L Pontiac Transport in reverse, backed up, the ABS, TCS and low fuel icon stayed lit on the dash, shifted into drive, but it won't go forward.

    I'll check the wheel sensors. I recently had the rear brakes serviced.

The vehicle computer has detected a condition that indicates a fault with the ABS/Traction Control System (TCS) Typically this is caused by a wheel sensor problem, but it can also be caused by a faulty connector, peripheral device, or the computer. Sometimes fixing this problem can be as simple as a short circuit in the rear break lights or a faulty connection in the rear brake lights...Start out by checking the brake light system, then check the sensors, and finally the computer.

    As far as the fuel icon...is the car low on fuel?

  • Anonymous Jul 23, 2009

    Check the transmission fluid level while the vehicle is in park and running...next check all of the fuses... you might also try this, when all of the fluids have been checked and are full, drive the vehicle about 100 feet in reverse...there may be a stuck valve inside the transmission

Renault Laguna DCi Dynamique 02 Plate : The yellow light on dashboard turns on when driving - it looks like the glow plug icon - but what does it mean please?


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Sir, thE TCS AND THE ABS ICON HAS SUDDENLY LIT. WHAT CAUSE THIS?


One of your wheel sensors have either become loose or disconnected. TCS traction control/ ABS anti lock brakes. Sensor will have to be reconnected or replaced. Then have lights reset.

99 pontiac transport- tcs,abs,emerg brake and low traction(flash)


Have the ABS system scanned for codes. The ABS and Traction control use the same computer. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor.
