How do I reset the computer for a 2003 cheverlet caverler

Repair the antilock brake system first. That should stop the engine light from coming on. If you don't do the repair, no matter how many times you reset the computer, the engine light will come on. Run a diagnostic test to find out what else is wrong. You reset the computer by disconnecting both battery cables, touch them together for a few seconds then reinstall.

Adv trAc warning light cAme on now I cAnt shut the adv trac off

If your warning light is lit, the system is disabled. The light will stay active until the problem is repaired. Most likely you have a wheel speed sensor that is not reading correctly throwing your trac system off.

Violent shimmy in front end when occasionally going over a bump

Do you have a trac bar? If not, make sure you don't have a bent tie rod, if that's bit he case, Did look at your drag link and/or steering stabalizer next. If you do have a trac bar, I'd say it's most likely bump steer. Either take off your trac bar(which could actually be masking more problems than you're aware of) or adjust what need be to insure that your drag loo I and trac bar arE at the same angle. Bump steer is often caused because the drag link is either being pushed or pulled by the vertical suspension movement due to not being parallel with the trac bar. I hope I was of help to ya!

2001 Lincoln LS V8 Advance Trac sensors replaced, but amber light on dashboard will not quit flashing. Shop cleared the codes when they replaced the sensor. The

The repair shop did not make the repair necessary

There are no advance trac sensors

Advance Trac is an add on option when new,
to the ABS Braking system

Even if the mil lamp is cleared, there will be codes
there when you access with a professional scanner,
since you have the amber lamp on

The only sensors are wheel speed sensors

The ab. and tracking light come on and go off and back on

This soundslike a bad speed sensor, you will need to have the computer scanned for codes, the computer turns on the light and stores the code, the code will tell you what has gone wrong and with some testing you can find the problem, the most common problem could be a bad wheel speed sensor, both light are on due to the abs problem because the trac control uses the abs speed sensors to watch wheel speed so if the computer sees a problem with the abs it turns off the trac and turns on the light. after the abs is repaired the trac light will go out, start by having the codes read, a scan tool is needed to get the codes, there are many auto part stores that scan the computer for free but i dont know if they scan for abs codes, you will have to check that out. good day.

The ABS system engages when it shouldn't and fails to shut off after the car is stopped. How many sensors are there on a 2000 Grand Marquis? How much do they cost to replace? Is the ABS light the...

TRAC is an option on ford products your better off without,
as it slams on the rear brakes & cuts out injectors, in the winter,
if the rear wheels slip. Really a bad invention. When you need
full control in snow,it is taken away.

The ABS is the electrical part of your braking system

As with any vehicle problem or check light, you get on your
dash,you should not be using the vehicle

You have the car checked for codes in a couple of days,
then diagnosed & repaired within a week

The abs & trac could be a bad wheel speed sensor,
you have 4 as well as other items in that system.

This is a social web site or forum,we answer questions from
home, as you can,so price questions would be addressed
at a repair shop. You never need a dealer for any vehicle
issues,ever,too expensive to go there

What cause the brake fluid light and the trac light and the brake light come on at the some time?

brake fluid light goes on when the fluid is low. The traction control light may go on as well if the module detects a fault in the traction control system. The abs light may go on at the same time as the trac light if the wheel speed sensor is not sending a believable signal to the abs/trac module.

If one of the wheel speed sensors is faulty, or a hub is bad, that can cause the problem described.

Good luck on repairing this problem.

ABS, brake, trac control, service engine soon light came.

I'm sorry to say that you will need to see a dealer or repair shop so they scan your ABS for trouble codes first and then find your problem.
