This is caused by a hard fault in the ABS/Traction control (all one system), the only way to pin down the problem is to have the Ford dealer test the system for trouble codes, the parts are very expensive so guessing is really not an option.

2010 equinox abs stabil trak and all wheel drive off


Why not use you warrantee at the dealer

We can not diagnose a vehicle without it
& you gave us no codes

The point here is you risking damage with a
skid,trac,abs etc issue if you keep driving it

All wheel drive I would never get on anything unless
your a vehicle tech & know how to use it & repair it
they do & will fail more then other combinations

My trac light says trac off, and my abs light is on. what does that mean? I have a 1999 grand am Pontiac.


the trac light is the traction control, the abs light means the antilock brake system is not functioning properly. the trac control is no issue. the abs will not cause the brakes to fail but they will lock instead of pulsing.

My AWD doesn't work. I have a broken wire on my


definately repair that wire. now keep in mind that that particular wire is called a shielded wire and you need to be clean and careful when you repair it. make sure it is water tight and protected. this wire is for the abs wheel speed sensor and with no reading, the abs is inoperable which will affect the awd. the abs and smart trac work in conjuction with each other to help you remain stable. cheers.

Red warning lite trax or trak apeared in dash then trak off came on and can not be turned on


It sounds like you have an ABS brake issue. If there is a problem with the ABS system or trac control system the light will come on.

Take the car to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto Parts and ask them to scan the car for trouble codes. They will do it for you at no charge. Write the codes down and respond back with the codes and we can start diagnosing.

ABS light goes on and off


Sounds like you have loose brake pad linings.
The traction control measures rotational speed between each rear wheel. If your pad lining momentarily causes one wheel to hesitate your trac control will flash. As the ABS detects braking without the brake pedal being pushed, it will flash.
Check your emergency brake pads. They can fall apart inside the drum/rotor combo on the rear. That is where your sensor is for the ABS.

My 99' volvo v70 continually flashes the traction control and abs warning light and the speedometer stops working the trip meter and the odometer go blank than all of a sudden it will start working again...


Sounds like a bad ABS control module is at least part of your problem. The symptoms are usually and ABS and TRACS light intermittent or constand and eventually your speedometer works intermittently or totally quits. This guy rebuilds/upgrades them for about $140. New ones run over $800. http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/Volvo_Parts/Volvo_ABS_removal.htm
