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.

Vw jetta vr6 battery and ABS light on


You could have an error code that caused the engine to shut off but that is really rare. There are a lot of things that cause the abs light to come on. Brake wear, faulty brake components, and/or sensors, reservoir levels.

Has it ever happened before? Has it happened again since the first time?

Why is my abs ans ets light on What does it mean


The most probable cause for the ETS (Electronic Traction Control System) light is the ABS light. When there is a problem in the ABS, ETS is disabled.

The ETS uses ABS data to help control the ETS system. You will need to have the ABS computer scanned for codes.

This light usually comes on if you have a failed wheel speed sensor but these vehicles are common for the ABS module to fail causing the same problem. You can back probe the wires comming out of each wheel speed sensor with the wheel lifted in the air and check for ac voltage as you spin the wheel.

What ever sensor does not put out voltage needs to be replaced if they all seeem to work it is likely the ABS module. But before you replace any parts you would want to have the ABS module checked for codes at one of your local shops that has a high end scan tool that can access those codes.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Merc e class 1996... ets warning light constantly on , but no problem with abs.. any ideas


This is just a traction control light.....If one wheel out spins the other it will make it come on at times ..You need a scan tool but you can disconnect the negative battery cable for 20 seconds and the light will go off......If it comes on again you will have to change wheel speed sensor...This is common with all vehicles with Traction control and ABS...Have it checked for saftey reasons...
But it happens with a lot of them.........Sensor replacement is normally what you have to do.
Sometimes battery disconnect works....You will have to reset clock.
Hope this helps..........................Metalpoet

2002 F250 4x2 SC - abs light comes on momentarily under hard acceleration, speedometer drops down at same time then pegs back up to normal speed. Coincides with tranny downshift. No loss of power, no wheel...


I bet you also lose the function of your cruise control when it happens. I would start first with checking the wiring connection on the vehicle speed sensor (also acts as abs sensor). Remove the sensor, clean it up and reinstall. If that doesn't work, replace the VSS.

You will find it on the top of your rear differential.

Side note: If you ever get stuck in the mud/snow and have to rock the truck forward/reverse, sometimes that will trigger your ABS light as well. This will normally reset itself after a few on/off cycles of the engine.

Service Traction System


You need to get a scanner on it to determine exacly what is going on. You may have a very simple sensor problem. But without scanning you will just be guessing and wasting time and money.

THE SPEED SENSOR IS LOCATED INSIDE THE HUB ASSEMBLY. THE TWISTED WIRES GOING TO THE SENSORS ARE PROBABLY AT FAULT. THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR HARNESSES ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH A DEALERSHIP.

Service enginge light on turns traction off


Most likely a bad wheel bearing, or wiring to the wheel bearing. I would start by having it scanned to point you in the right direction. (What bearing to look at). Could also be something in the ABS module.

2002 Buick Century anti-lock brake problems


i recently had this problem too, except i had all the lights on (ABS, service vehicle, trac-off, AND service engine) they are all easy to fix without spending more than 20-30$ for labour (depending how much your mechanic charges you) mine did it for free and he found out why the engine light is on afterwards too. so to fix all these lights (abs, trac-off, and service vehicle you MUST get another ABS cable (i went to a garage, they were towing a GM vehicle to the junk yard so i grabbed some scissors and cut BOTH abs cables on each side (good thing i did because one was bad) and braught them to my mechanic. the reason the lights come on is probably a defect or in my case my mechanic said it was salt buildup in the wires (on the drivers side) so he cut the wire off and rewired the new one and BOOM all the lights came off (service vehicle, abs, and trac-off) now for my service engine it says catalytic converter but im trying to put some fuel system cleaner to help it out i read somewhere that this is a defect of the car, so if you dont have that light yet, SELL your car ASAP for as much as you can get for it (after fixing the lights of course) and always google (car name+recalls) in the search bar to see what youre getting into, take care
