That is your "Check Engine Light". You need to have it scanned to find out what is going on. Most of the time, it is emissions related.

Had a leak in front windshield window after it was replaced. After heavy rain this morning, some water was on my steering wheel and some on steering column. Now my SRS light stays on & horn does not...


Depending on the year and make of this car or truck when you turn on the key the system runs a test and if the problem was repaired it will shut light off, if the light remains on then theres a problem. even if you had a scan tool reset the light it will come right back on as soon as the engine is started, this sounds like something got wey and shorted out, the first thing i would check is the fuses and then look around at the bottom of the steering column and check connections for water or rusted terminals,inside the steering wheel is a clock spring that contains wires for horn air bag and other controls if cars has them like cruise or steering wheel radio controls, the part called clock spring is what makes the wheel be able to turn without ripping wires, it like a retractable bunch of wires and sometimes they go bad just from turnning the wheel so often, heres a picture of it, chrysler is famous for problems with this, good day.johnjohn2_97.jpg

What would give a check engine light and antilock brake light but when checked with a scanner it comes back as no codes found ? its an oldsmobile alero


Are you sure its the "Check engine" light and not the "service vehicle soon" light. They are quite different. Only the check engine light will set a code, either current or history. The ABS will also set a code, but will also illuminate the service vehicle soon light. Aleros are notorious for bad front wheel bearings, which contain the wheel speed sensors for the ABS system. They also have issues with the wiring harnesses going to the wheel speed sensors. Have the front wheel bearings checked for excessive play first, then I would suspect the harness, especially if the lights tend to come on more so when its raining or wet out.

When I start my 2001 alero the anti-lock, traction light, service engine soon, service vehicle soon lights all stay on all the time. But my car seems to be running fine. Why is this?


the anti-lock and traction lights will come on together if there is a common problem with the two, since they are closely related. may be a wheel speed sensor or something similar. the service engine soon light indicates a problem with the engine computer, can be anything from an emission system problem or an engine performance problem. all of these lights can come on with no apparent running problems on the car. the service vehicle soon light is basically a maintenance reminder, an oil change light. take the car into a shop and have the codes read for these lights.

Service engine soon/ABS/Trac lights are staying on


Have the ABS codes scanned. This will get you started in the right direction. Possibility is that one or more of the wheel speed sensors is not working or intermittent - could be wiring or connectors on these as well. Another possibility is the EBCM, Electronic Brake Control Module. I believe the EBCM will throw 1216 code in many cases. THese can be rebuilt online for about $150.00.
The more likely problem is the wheel speed sensors. THese are an integral part of the wheel hub. About $100.00 each for the part. About $250.00 each to have them replaced. They can be tested with an AC voltmeter by spinning the wheel. Also, they should read roughly 850 ohms resistance. The ABS codes will tell you which ones are not reporting.
