Question about 1999 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

The ABS light stays on. At first it was intermittent. The Traction Control message stays lit too, and has been on simultaneously with the ABS light. At first it was just on for a drive and then did not stay on next time. Progressed to point it just stays on -- both ABS and Traction Control -- all the time. When the trouble began, it began with TC operation when not called for (gentle braking in dry condition) and the ratcheting brrrrrrring noise was heard when the ABS and TC came on and stayed on.

Sounds like the abs sensor is malfunctioning and needs replacing.. To verify this.. remove the abs fuse in the fuse panel below the hood.. This will disable the abs system and your brake would work as if it was not abs .. Drive the vehicle and see how the brakes work.. if it eliminates your problem or works better you will need to replace the abs sensor or you can use the car without abs its up to you..

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .

• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

MESSAGE CENTRE TC


TC = Traction Active

If your vehicle is equipped with the Traction Control system, this message will stay on a few seconds after the traction system stops limiting wheel spin.

This message will appear when the traction control system is limiting wheel spin. Keep in mind that when the warning lights turn on, a fault code is stored in the ABS control module (in this case). Retrieving, diagnosing, and repairing any ABS system faults will be necessary to keep the light off. A common fault with ABS systems are the wheel speed sensors, stored codes may confirm this.

Hope this helps.

I get intermittent ABS, traction control and power steering warnings simultaneously. After the ABS & traction indicators stay on typically until I restart the car .


The problem lies in one of the ABS wheel sensors. Most likely on the drive axle. Because the ABS sensor is only working part of the time. When it stops working it gives a signal telling the system that the wheel is spinning without traction. In doing this the vehicle computer tells the engine to go into the limp mode. If this is the trouble you may be able to confirm it by removing your foot from the accelerator and reapplying. It should regain power for the few fractions of a second it takes for the ABS sensor to retransmit the failure signal.

Transmission Traction "Off" light stays lit with Traction button


The traction control system is controlled through the Anti-lock brake system. The way it works is if one of your wheels starts spinning the ABS applys the brake to that wheel to transfer power to the oppsite wheel that is getting traction. If your ABS is bad then your Traction control won't work. To check it I would find a parking lot on a wet day. In an open space mash in the gas. if you hear the ABS system kick in and you don't squall the tires then your good. My guess is you won't. What I would be worried about is will my ABS work. When checking the traction control is a good time to check the ABS. Acclerate to around 15 mph, then mash the brake as your live depended on it. If you hear a motor run and feel a vibration or grind in the brake peddal, then it works.
