Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette

Service traction system light along w/abs and track off comes on

The lights mention above come on and I had a technician from the dealership diagnose. He stated it was the left front speed sensor that was going out. We recently had a lot of rain and he suggested that this may have caused the problem. I have priced the item both with the dealer and online and it is amazing the cost difference! The lights come on and stay on during driving. My only question; Is this something I can replace myself on a nice Saturday or do I let the dealer have part of my child's college fund?

Wiring to this sensor is probably damaged. the wires like to break and the only thing holding it all together is the plastic insulation, tugging the wires at the plug will identify this problem. If wire pulls apart then the plug is no good. replace connector and all should be good

Service traction system


Don't mess with the ABS light get it diagnosed and fixed. Your brakes will work with the ABS light on but you will skid because the system will switch to basic hydraulic action with no control of how much to each wheel. If ABS is on then it is not working.

2000 bonneville trac off light and abs light stay on


The ABS light is the Anti Lock Break system light. You may have a malfunction in there. . . Take it to your qualified brake specialist and have him check it out. completely. You may have a leak in the system, the traction control is controlled by the button on the console where you can turn it off and on. If you have tried the button, take it to a car repair service or a ugh dealership and get the problem diagnosed with advanced software. Do mess with your life, fix the brakes.

Low Tire Pressure Light, ABS light, Trac Off Light and Service Traction Control


I assume this is a Ford vehicle. Start by having the rear axel serviced At the dealership. There is probably metal dust on the magnetic speed sensor, that triggers off of the ring gear inside the axel housing, causing the fault warning lights on the dash. Run an OBDII scan with a print out while at the dealer. Of coarse fix the tire.

All are tied into the ABS system, traction as well as stabilization, This needs to be looked at by someone who can hook up a diagnostic tester to read the fault codes stored in the ABS system then perform the correct diagnostic procedures to isolate the problem

2002 Buick Rendezvous Service traction system and ABS lights, grinding when turning ans braking


The ABS and Service Traction system may be due to bad sensors or signal reaching the ABS/Traction Control computer. The grinding may be due to uneven or unsmooth rotors, and/or worn out pads or shoes.

I would recommend that the entire braking system be diagnosed at your local dealer or brake service facility.

Hi,the traction control light coming up means there is a fault detected in the system and a scan tool will be required to learn what fault has been detected. Possible steering angle sensor, wheel speed sensor or brake pressure sensor since the light comes up when making turns or when backing up. Faults are to be checked and proper diagnostic procedures carried out before parts replacement remedies.....
