SOURCE: abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

SOURCE: car tries to start but doesnt, it just spits & sputters

I had the same problem all of these models do, but GM wont recall them. Here is what you do if you have not yet, turn to key to on but don't start the engine all the lights in the dash will go on, when they turn back off see if your security light stays on or blinks. If it does its your Pass Lock security system. You can reprogram it using the key, take the key out then put it back in the ignition move it all the way to ON but don't turn on the engine when the lights in the dash go out turn the key back to the ACC position leave it there for ten minutes the light should turn off after about ten min. then turn the key to the OFF position pull it out about 1/4 of the way then push it in and start it up. If this is the problem you may have to do this any time it does not start up.

is the ABS light on? Check the crank sensor wiring down the back of the block, it may have melted on the exhaust. It runs in between the firewall and the engine, 2 wires.

My 99 grand am anti break and traction warning lights come on for no reason and kicks off my cruise...doesn't matter if I have traction or not...any ideas?


Yes . Most likely one or more of the wheel speed sensors is faulty and needs to be replaced. If these are faulty the ABS will not work and you will get the ABS warning. These should be checked first.
Then the anti lock braking system pump should be checked to ensure it is operating. If it is not you will get the ABS warning.

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

2004 grand cherokee 4.0l one day it will run fine the next day it runs rough rich and when i step on the gas the engine cuts out and spits and sputters


When the "spits and sputters" happen are you in low rpm? Can you "by-pass" the sputtering by accelerating? Has your gas mileage suffered?

I have 4 sensor lights on ABS, brake, VCS and skid light. I have new brakes and they are fine. Also, my cruise will not set


The abs , traction control , transmission and cruise are all connected. You will need to have codes pulled to even know where to start.

1995 Jeep grand cherokee is missing while running. When it is under a heavy load (driving fast) it runs fine. When idleing and slow driving it spits and sputters.


I have the same problem on my 95 grand cherokee laredo. Sometimes it starts out fine and after about 10 miles it starts spitting and sputtering. Then after a while it seems to clean out and run fine again for a little while. Then other times it starts out spitting and sputtering at the begining. I changed the fuel filter and that was not it. It is a 4.0L 6cyc. Any Ideas?

Thanks,
Broken Arrow, OK

2004 Grand Am acts like it's out of gas when it's not.


It almost sounds like you are losing spark at times, and not fuel. i guess the cheapest place to start is to change plugs and wires. Pay close attention to the gap on the plugs. Another thing could be the idle air control valve, or water in your fuel.
