My 03 Monte Carlo ss swayed left up right when it rains, when not wet out i have no swaying issues

With the exception of too much power and bald tires on takeoff, there is little to affect straight line performance once you are underway and rolling. If the car is pulling to the left read the following.

The exceptions to this are the traction control system and the ABS braking system. The wheels in particular have controls which count the revolutions of each wheel and make adjustments.

Either system uses the brakes to synchronize the spins of the wheels from side to side. The front brakes would be most likely cause the greatest pull to one side or the other. If the sensors are getting wet and shorting, then it could cause the loss of a spin sensor getting its information to the master controls. This does not mean the rear wheels can not tug at the brakes and cause the car to veer to one side, but it is less prominent.

You need someone to examine both the ABS and the Traction Control systems. Many have scanning machines to evaluate problems. Autozone, Oreilys, and Advance autoparts can scan for FREE. But there are difference in the scanners and only the most expensive will do these functions.

Most likely the brakes on the left front will be more worn from dragging due to the brake being applied automatically.

If you mean to say the car wanders left to right when wet, then tire condition and worn suspension parts can show up when ground friction is reduced. This would be a little like hydroplaning and is caused by thin threads and loose suspension. When dry, one tire holds the direction you point to and keeps the other tire in line, but when wet the two sides battle for direction. Your good side loses its dominant grip.

You probably should try to get a scan from one of the autopart stores and tell them what you want checked. The ABS and the Traction Control as they may not have the better scanner.

An Alignment shop which can offer full services(some can't) would inspect all the joints, tires and brakes. Some give estimates in advance of repairs.

The low tire pressure warning is on and my tires aren't low. How do I reset them? 2003 monte carlo ss

Turn the ignition on, do not start. Turn the light switch from off to "park lights" three times within five seconds.

If that doesn't work there is a more lengthy reset procedure that involves using the radio. I can get that info to you if needed or you can also find it in your owners manual.

I own a 2003 Monte Carlo SS and it is currently in the shop because my Traction Control Service light came on with the ABS light. When this occurred a grinding noise happened underneath the entire car and...

sounds like a wheel bearing, the abs/traction control sensor is inside the bearing as the bearing gets play in it the sensor is pulled further and further from the ring gear also when the bearing has play it can collapse the caliper leaving a space between the rotor surface and brake pad which means a soft pedal quick repedative pushes on the pedal might make it improve slightly as your pumping up the caliper also the bearing will make a roaring sound that gets louder as you pick up speed with the wheels hanging down tip the wheel top to bottom and see if there is play but not every bad bearing will have play you can feel hope this helps good luck

ABS and Traction control warning lights come on independtly and jointly. I believe the problem is the hub mounted sensor. How do I replace it.This is on a 2003 Monte Carlo SS.

hi if you know for sure it's a wheel speed sensor
remove that wheel
remove the caliper and caliper bracket
remove the brake rotor
there are 3 bolts on the other side of the knuckle(13mm)
remove them
remove the axle nut(1 5/16)
remove the hub bearing assembly(you may need to use a hammer on the hub flange)
hope this helps

2003 Monte Carlo SS Hesitates and Dies after running for awhile

The ck engine light should not be ignored, what sensor was shown to be bad ? Have it scanned again and replace the sensor that is bad if it still runs rough you might want to consider a tune up. Plugs, wires, fuel and air filter's and clean the throttle body with some gumout. It could also be the IAC motor Idle Air Control. Good Luck
