The traction control works off the ABS system You will need a scan tool capable of reading ABS codes before you can further diagnose the problem If you are able to retrive the abs codes searrch on the internet for the trouble code Many times it is a wheel sensor or bad connection on the sensors .
first check brake fluid level then you will have to test the wheel speed sensors that the codes refer to. when there is a sensor problem it will activate both the abs and traction control lights. the red brake light comes on when there is low fluid condition(leak),worn brakes that need servicing. also if there is a abs module problem it can set codes. you need to know what the codes mean this is a starting place to diagnoise.
Had the same problem with my 2002 Lincoln LS, it was a bad wheel speed sensor. The right front wheel bearing had some play in it, so I had the hub assembly replaced. The hub assembly comes with a new wheel speed sensor attached. After I replaced the hub assmbly with sensor, the ABS and Traction Control lights went off. No problem since!
if abs light is on it means your abs system is not working properly due to disconnection of sensor of any wheel or problem with abs module but it dosn't mean that your brake will not work it will work but it will work like non abs brake , car wheel can get lock while sudden braking, don't worry but drive carefully, thanks.
I would take the car right back to the shop that cleared the code. There was a 50/50 chance of clearing the codes. The good thing is now the shop will be able to pin point the failure with the fresh code. Most of the time the abs controller is going out. The controller also might not be readiing the tire sensor . If one sensor goes out the abs light will come on. The controller could be working fine and one of the sensor has to be replace. That is the cheapest cost. The abs controller and abs hydraulic controller is big bucks to replace , The part is around 1500 bucks. The tire sensor are around 25.00 35.00 each.
The manufacture has made the vehicle to where if the abs system is not working correctly then the brake system will automatically work as normal brakes with out the abs system.
Yeah its a pain in the you know where to take back but I would fight tooth and nail with the shop not to charge you any additional check out time. If the shop stands behind there work they will not charge you additoinal check out time.
MAKE SURE YOUR CAR BATTERY AND ALTERNATOR IS IN GOOD OPERATION.HAVE THEM TESTED.I HAVE SEEN A CAR WITH ABS AND AMPS LIGHTS ON.THE ALTERNATOR WAS NOT PUTTING OUT ENOUGH VOLTS TO RUN THE ABS BRAKE SYSTEM. IF ALTERNATOR AND BATTERY IS GOOD.I WOULD REPLACE THE ABS RELAY FIRST.ITS GOES BAD CAUSE THE ABS BRAKES NOT TO WORK.IF ABS RELAY IS GOOD.THEN IT HAS TO BE ABS MODULE GOING BAD.IT HAS TO BE REPLACED.
have the car scanned with a scanner capable of reading ABS codes,get back to me with the code and we'll go from there. sounds like like one of the wheel sensors is bad. this controls both ABS and TRACTION CONTROL
ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.
