They just go to let you know that you need to take your car and get it serviced theire is really no way of knowing straight out the bat what's wrong with the the lights and how they came on without having them check out it can be a very small thing or it can be something serious it really depends on what you have but I suggest that you get it checked out before more damage happens

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.

07 pontiac g5, what does service traction, traction off. This light comes on. Car then dont want to idle, transmission shifts hard and jerks into gear. What does tht mean?


This is all electronically controlled by the PCM - engine computer an EBCM - electronic brake control module . An this will affect the transmission as well because everything is all hooked together electronically .
Engine Traction System Indicator
TRAC OFF
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) illuminates the TRAC OFF indicator when the electronic brake control module (EBCM) inhibits the Engine Traction System due to a malfunction in the Engine Traction System. The IPC receives a GMLAN message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
Your best bet is take it to a ASE certified repair shop or a GM dealer , Chevy , Buick , Cadillac . seeing how Pontiac isn't any more .

Abs, service engine light and trac off lights keep coming on


Hello. The ABS [anti-lock brake system], traction control and service engine soon light are all interconnected. The ABS and traction control each depend on sensitive sensors to send a signal to your car's computer that there is a problem. The problem unfortunately is that the sensors themselves are bad. If your brakes still pump themselves when you stop fast, for example, then your ABS system is still working but one of your sensors is sending a signal anyways.
To check everything out you can take your car to many auto parts stores, or most recently AAMCO transmission stores, where they will scan your computer for free. Once the scan is done you will know exactly why the service engine soon light is on.
In the meantime, you do not need to worry about your brakes because all the ABS system does is pump them for you. You can still pump them yourself, like folks did for years before ABS came along. Same is true with the traction control. As long as you do not drive wrecklessly you need not worry.
So to summarize, call around to auto parts stores, or AAMCO to get a free scan. Once you have those results you can decide on how to proceed.

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.

Service Vehicle soon trouble light comes on, along with ABS light and Trac Off light, but no diagnostic codes show up on diagnostic reader. How do you determine what is wrong?


If you are using an obd2 reader, make sure it has all the updates. If the check engine light is on, is should show up on reader. There is also a ABS light tester as well. It sounds like an error in the ABS/Trac cirucuits. It could be a bad pump or faulty module.

What does trac off light refer to? service engine and trac off light comes on.


Trac is the control that doesnt let your tires spin when they are not making contact with the road. Just by having your emergency brake on will light up the trac light. It also come on with your abs. If you driving on a slick road and you jam on your brakes and the tires slide a little mine will say low track on my car.
