Question about 2003 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

ABS traction and service light

I have a Pontiac 2003 Sunfire. When I have just started the car and have to over-steer to get out of my parking spot, my ABS, Traction, and Service Lights all come on. I also get a bit of a shudder in the steering column. It most often happens when reversing is involved. Any ideas?
Thanks!

Why does my 2005 pontiac grand prix say service variable effort steerin, traction control off, and service abs?


jack up the four points of the vehicle one at a time shake the tire up to down and left to right, you have bad hub assemblies which tells you your ABS IS BAD take it from there and see what lights disappear, keep me posted and we will go from there.

ABS and TRAC lights are on


This could be and indicator that an abs sensor has gone bad or intermittently losing its signal. This may require replacement of a bearing hub asembly in which the abs sensor is incorporated into.The traction control uses the abs to control slipping when traction is limited. If the abs becomes disabled the traction control does as well.

Is the car safe to drive when the ABS, Service and the Traction Control OFF lights are on?


Truthfully, yes. But not as safe with the ABS and traction control systems working properly. The ABS system probably just needs a new sensor (located on the inside of the wheel) they are very easy to fix yourself if you want to take it on, just reply back and I can tell you how. The traction control is off because the ABS system is not working properly and it will not work until you fix the ABS. Depending on why the Service light is on may be another problem entirely, so I would take it to your local car parts place to see why the light is on, if it's related to the brakes, then it's all one thing. If it is something else, the car may not be safe to drive related to the engine light. I hope this helps! Good Luck

Abs light, trac light, service engine soon light 2001 Pontiac Grand Am


Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

Service lights come on when I step on the gas.


These lights are indicating that a fault(s) exists in the systems that u have indicator lights for, they are warning lights, there are 100's of reasons (an eng miss is just one) for the check engine light to be on, and dozens for the traction control and ABS lights. U need to have the dealer or other shop test the systems for the system trouble codes that are stored in the memory of the control modules whenever these light come on, until the system is tested for these codes it would all be guess work and possible wasted money on parts that are not defective, have the test run and post the codes back on fixya
