    i'm calling around to have the trans fluid checked and changed if need be. i knew something would be up with it because of the way it was acting. still not 100% sure how to fix the speedometer though. we were on our way home and it just stopped. immediately after getting gas if that helps?? i don't know what is going on with this car? i've had it less than a month and its proving to already be a pain lol. thank you by the way!!

There could be a trans or speed sensor problem. I dont know about the light reminder ?? I would have a trans shop check it first.

Have a 2001 pontiac sunfire can be driving down the road trac off light will come on and car will start running rough then die turn car off then back on push ets button then light goes out pull up on...


You have an ABS Braking System Malfunction

Just sillly for a professional to say there is nothing
wrong

Your car is not safe to use at all

Need a different repair shop & make sure they
underdstand all the details of the issue & they
write down what you tell them

I never recommend a dealer, but in your area that
may be an option. Don't take it back until they drive
100 miles with no issues

What does ETS mean and how to use it


Hello! ETS stands for Enhanced Traction System. It is a system that limits traction loss by utilizing the anti-lock braking system (ABS) to keep the tires from spinning on slippery or loose pavement. If you press the button, and the ETS light is illuminated on your instrument panel, that indicates that the system is disengaged. To engage the system, push the ETC button on the shift handle, and the light should go off. If it doesn't, that could be an indication that you have an ABS malfunction and you should have that diagnosed.

I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!

Speedometer just stopped working with no notice


If trans is still shifting its most likely a blown cluster fuse or bad cluster.If you have a check engine light & trans don't shift most likely blown trans fuse or trans vss (speedo) harness at right drive axle broken puple with white stripe wire or light green wire with black stripe
