If lamp remains on, the anti-lock brake system shouls be serviced. The brake system will remain fuctional, but without the anti-lock fuction. After servicing the anti-lock brake system the lamp will automatically reset. On some models it may be necessary to operate vehicle at a speed over 18 mph to reset lamp. Alot of cases with age and miles of vehicle would suggest to me that one of the wheel sensors on the front has broken wire for sensor, can be checked by computer testing the abs system to get codes to repair.

I would say if you are not having problems with your brakes ( ABS means Anti-lock Brake System) then it is probably a broken wire on the wheel sensor that is right next to the drive shaft.
Have someone plug an OBD II reader in and see if you have any codes, please letme know what you find.
If you are having brake problems take your car in and have a reliable auto center repair.

    you can try to get readings from an obd II reader all day but it wont work . I've been told by professionals that 1995's are in between one and 2 . I have no idea how to get readings from the computer but I know that the code readers at auto zone or any other parts store wont read a 1995 computer .

How to replace pressure control solenoid p2616 toyota matrix 2007


You may not have to replace it yourself. I hope your car is under 80,000-100,000 miles there was a recall issued for that problem.
P2716 is caused by a bad Ecm, (engine control module,) Toyota has an upgraded ECM for this and are warrantying these for 8 years or 80k miles, Take it to the dealer and have them replace it for you, there should be no charge if the vehicle is under 80k miles according to service bulletin (41554a).

I have a 2005 Equinox. The abs and tc light are on. Also there is an occaisional sound and vibration when I press on the brakes going at a slow rate of speed. The local Chevy dealer test drove the...


Have a competent mechanic scan the codes in the ABS control. A common fail point of the 2005 Equinox is the wire harness jumper for the drivers front wheel sensor. This is a foot and a half long jumper that connects the wheel sensor to the engine compartment wire harness. It is rigidly held in place by a couple of plastic stays that create a pinch flex point just beneath the lower stay where wheel turn moves the wire against this rigid point. After about 60-80k miles, the wire begins to break down in the insulator and false wheel speed readings are read as false wheel slip indications while the ABS system tries to modulate brake pressure. This modlation creates the grinding feel. After an amount of time, the ABS computer "recognizes" this as a fault and shuts ABS and traction control off since both systems use the wheel spin input, and the dash lights light.
Although this is a pretty pricey part at a dealer, a genuine Delco replacement part can be found online often at a much more reasonable price.

My speedometer sticks at various incorrect indications. Most common indication is at 0. How hard/expensive is this to troubleshoot and fix?


There is a special coverage for your instrument cluster from GM. If you are under 70k miles its covered. If your between 70 & 80k miles the cluster is covered but you will have to pay the labor. If your over 80k miles you will have to pay for the cluster, installation and programming.

I've hooked up 2 different scan tools to my 04 tahoe and both times it didn't read anything. The check engine light is on and there is also a rattling noise from the cat.


If you have a catalytic converter is rattling it can be replaced for free if you have under 80k.Same with the PCM.They are both covered for 8 years 80k miles.If the check engine light is on it should show the codes.The only thing is not all scanners work.Also there was a bulletin for some G.M. vehicles that had to be reprogrammed for after market scanners to work on them.

Car is begining to stall while being driven.


are you getting a check engine light? If so have the local parts store tell you what its complaining about. My bet is a cylinder missfire. I am having the same problem as are countless other people on the net. I have changed my plugs, wires, ignition coil, fuel filter...etc. timing and tuneup are also likely fixes if you have not had it done at 80k. Need more info from you to help diagnose.

P0601 on'02 pt cruiser need replacement. How much $ at the absolutely best price. What can happen at the worst if i ignore it. Car is driving well despite of engine light on. Please help.


How many miles are on the car? Major emissions component failures are covered by an 8yr/80,000 mile warranty. If you are under 80K, take it in to the dealership. If you are over the 80K miles (obviously you are under 8 years), it needs to be fixed at a dealership because the new PCM will have to be reprogrammed to the car.

It may not affect driveability though, as it seems in your case. That of course doesn't mean it can't later.
