Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Service ABS/Service Traction Control/Service Variable Effort Stee

I have gotten this message intermittantly since about 40K miles on my 2005 Prix and I now have about 95K. I won't get the error messages for months and then they will pop back up, come on regularly but not always, and then disappear for months again. A mechanic told me early on that until the error message came on and stayed on that it would be very difficult to determine if it was a sensor, which one it was. Now it's been on steady for about a week. Do you think Autozone's computer will be able to tell me which one is bad?

jack up the four points of the vehicle one at a time shake the tire up to down and left to right, you have bad hub assemblies which tells you your ABS IS BAD take it from there and see what lights disappear, keep me posted and we will go from there.

I get intermittent ABS, traction control and power steering warnings simultaneously. After the ABS & traction indicators stay on typically until I restart the car .


The problem lies in one of the ABS wheel sensors. Most likely on the drive axle. Because the ABS sensor is only working part of the time. When it stops working it gives a signal telling the system that the wheel is spinning without traction. In doing this the vehicle computer tells the engine to go into the limp mode. If this is the trouble you may be able to confirm it by removing your foot from the accelerator and reapplying. It should regain power for the few fractions of a second it takes for the ABS sensor to retransmit the failure signal.

Usually when I see this the problem it's related to one of the wheel speed sensors not giving the correct signal to the ABS system. A missing or faulty sensor reading will cause the ABS and related systems to turn off which causes the warning lamps to come on. The reason it works again once you have shut off the car is that the system resets and works until it sees the problem again. I would have the service codes read with a scan tool. Once that is done the problem is usually fairly easy to track down.

If your trac and abs are both on. the problem could be a wheel speed sensor.
