Going up a hill, traction and break lights comes on (service traction-break fluid) message on my screen, got to top of hill and slowed down, lights came off. 2008 pontiac g6


Make sure your brake fluid is at the correct level. Any issue with the brake system will cause the traction system to not work as traction control works by modulating the brake on the wheel (s) that are slipping. If fluid level is fine then the sensor for the fluid level may be bad.

Why does the "service traction system" and "service ABS" light to come on when driving?


The service ABS light on while driving means that the ABS wheel speed sensor is defective or a broken wire that goes to the sensor. You now only have regular braking. This means that you can now lock up one or more wheels with hard braking. Then the car can swerve either left or right while braking hard. The traction control must also rely on the ABS wheel speed sensor to keep both front wheels spinning at the same speed for safety reasons. This prevents loss of control of your car while getting better traction with the tires.

Brake light, abs light and service traction system lights are on I just put on new pads and rotors on. What else needs to be done?


If you had or paid someone to service your brakes, Have them correct what they did wrong, if the lights were not on before. Could be wrong rotors, or a WSS (wheel speed sensor) is unplugged, damaged.

Sounds like a "WSS" (wheel speed sensor) problem. Each wheel has one. Located on the backside of each hub, between the brake disc and hub bearing. Check for loose connector first. Wire damage? Wiring touching exhaust pipes or rubbing wheel or tire? Look for mud or debris or damage to the sensor's or the rotating sensor ring. ( has a lot of "teeth") Try driving in reverse, in a straight line 25 to 30 feet, then drive forward twice that distance. If that does not clear the warning lamps most auto parts stores can hook into your computer (usually for free) and determine which sensor(s) have an issue. Replacing these sensors is common and simple.

My traction control light and anti lock light popped on today and now the brake light popped on. i read the manual and it says to switch the traction control button back to on but i can't find it


I think your traction control button is on the center console behind the Shifter.
But, I don't think that is the problem. That switch will cause the traction control and light to turn on and off. It should not affect the brake light and anti-lock light.

I would first check your brake fluid level. Top it off with the correct fluid. The fluid is a DOT number; like DOT3 or DOT5. Use the correct DOT fluid.
If the fluid is very low, you may need your brake fluid system bled to remove any air. And you may want to check the brake pads. Low fluid may mean you need new pads.

If that doesn't work, go to an auto parts store that will scan your car for ODB2 error codes. AutoZone will do it for free. I suspect you may have a bad wheel bearing. That will cause the ABS and Trac lights to go on. I've replaced GM bearing/sensors on several of my cars. The last one was my 2005 Bonneville. The bearing and sensor are combined in one unit.

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.

Service Traction System Light on 2003 Chev Impala


on the rotors you probably noticed two lines one for the brakes and the other is your traction control magnet which picks up a signal to tell the computer to control the braking system when the wheel locks up in hard braking, you either damaged the magnet or it picked up some metal shaving while replacing the brake pads
