Question about 2001 Lincoln LS

2 Answers

I replaced the brakes(loaded) on all 4 tires and besides the fact that the brakes are brand new and still squeel the ABS and Traction control warning lights are on. I am in the process of checking and cleaning all the whell sensors and making sure that nothing came loose when I did my brakes. The rear sensors were simple took them off cleaned them and screwed them back on. the front however are clip in sensors and I dont know how to get them off. I have removed the retaining ring but am scared to use force in getting the sensors unattached so i can clean them. My plan is to clean them, re-attach, then unhook the battery to reset the computer. IS THAT WHAT I SHOULD DO. Or is there another reason(besides bad sensors) that the warning lights are on. I'm going to take my car to AutoZone to run a diagnostic if this doesnt work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. David

Assuming that the lights were not on prior to the brake work and that you did not leave the key in the ignition during your brake work then I would have to say that you disconnected or damaged a sensor

if you do not have a scanner of your own then run to the part store where you made your purchase and have them pull codes

this way we will have a better idea where to begin our diagnoses

Hi David. Cleaning the sensors can be your first course of action. The sensors may be corroded causing the abs light to appear. Try to check the brake fluid level too if its sitting on the proper level, can cause the ABS light to appear too. Hope this helps and good luck!

    Alright David, Once you have an access to the sensor you can use WD40 to loosen up the sensor. Use a flathead screwdriver to pull it out. Be careful on pulling it out for its an expensive part and avoid damaging the oring. It can be pulled out just add a little patience.

PRE-DIAGNOSTIC INSPECTIONBefore diagnosing ABS/TCS, perform a comprehensive visual inspection of system as follows.Check ABS/TCS wiring harness connectors for looseness. Check harness routing; pay particular attention to wheel speed sensor wiring harness routing. Check fuses No. 1D, 5B and 6B in instrument panel fuse block. Check fuses No. 1 and 2 in underhood fuse block. Check brake fluid level in master cylinder reservoir. Check brake fluid level in Pressure Modulator Valve (PMV) assembly reservoir. Ensure parking brake is fully released. Ensure parking brake switch is functioning properly. Always perform ABS/TCS system functional check before using DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHARTSThe EBCM/EBTCM has self-diagnostic capability, which can detect system failures. Fault codes stored by EBCM/EBTCM can be displayed using Tech 1 scan tester. There are no provisions for flash code diagnostics.Begin ABS/TCS diagnosis with PRE-DIAGNOSTIC INSPECTION procedure. If failures are found during pre-diagnostic inspection, perform necessary repairs, and proceed with ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK. See Fig. 5 .If no failures are found during pre-diagnostic inspection, go to ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK. See Fig. 5 . The ABS/TCS FUNCTIONAL CHECK will either indicate ABS/TCS is functioning properly or direct technician to various diagnostic procedures such as diagnostic charts, symptom diagnosis or BRAKE warning light diagnosis.CHART D - TRACTION OFF WARNING LIGHT ON CONTINUOUSLY & NO DTC SET (BUICK WITH UH8 OR U2A INSTRUMENT CLUSTER)Circuit DescriptionWhen ignition switch is first turned to RUN position, EBTCM goes through a self-test, which lasts 2-4 seconds. During self-test, EBTCM commands TRACTION OFF indicator warning light on. Powertrain Control Module (PCM) can also command EBTCM to set a Code 75 which will illuminate TRACTION OFF indicator.Traction control switch is located either on instrument panel center trim plate or driver's front door trim panel. Switch allows driver to select traction control mode (on/off). When traction control system is turned off, TRACTION OFF warning light comes on.EBTCM monitors transaxle temperature through

MY INFO CENTER KEEPS TURNING ON SAYING SERVICE TRACTION SYSTEM, ALSO THE (ABS) TURNS ON WHEN I TURN, HOW CAN I FIX THIS. IS THIS A SENDOR PROBLEM OR SOMETHING MORE SERIOUS


I can tell you what is going on under your car. This can be a sensor problem as you have guessed or it can be a brakepad problem.

Each wheel has a sensor which counts the RPM of the wheel. When the RPM of one wheel does not match the RPM of another, the Traction Control starts to work. When the Traction control loses information from 1 or more sensors you get a warning on your dash.

The loss of information can be due to dust or Brake debris blocking the sensor from picking up the signal or the sensor worked loose from the rubber holder and is hanging too far away to work. Since you also have an ABS warning, I suspect your Brake pads are worn out.

The fact that you get a warning when the wheels are turned means the front Calipers are moving alot. The Brakelines and hoses are stiff and are designed to stay in place against the backside of the Caliper. The Pads limit the travel of the Caliper so you would not be tripping the ABS sensor unless it sensed excessive movement in those parts.

Get your brakes checked. The Traction control will probably straighten out once the brakes are correct.

BMW MODELS AFFECTED: All with ABS

FAULT: ABS warning light comes on intermittently. Normal troubleshooting procedures find no defect.

Possible Cause: If car has recently had two new tires, or snow tires put on. Sometimes when the car is driven over 50 MPH.

Solution: Check all four tires on the car, make sure they are the same brand, style, and size. Check if
any of the new tires have substantially more tread than the rest. These differences may cause enough
variance in rolling diameters to confuse the ABS control unit, which in turn, gives a false signal to the ABS
warning light.

If that is not the issue, it is most likely the ABS control module failing.

ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.

Upgraded 456 gears on my Avalanche now having warning lights on


rubbish
the abs sensors stopped wheels not fast spinning wheels
when there is no signal from the rotor the abs kicks in and releases he brake pressure to that wheel/s allowing them to turn to give the driver steering control
as the abs and traction control use the same wheel sensor , the traction could detect a fast spinning wheel and take action to control it
you have upgraded the final drive ration to 4.56 from standard which will be 3 point something which will make the engine rev higher to get the same speed
and that could be where the problem is coming from as there is a connection between the engine rpms and the road speed and the preset parameters may be not reading the new settings from the new diff ratio
putting on the lights and dropping power

Mini cooper Warning lights for abs, low tire,traction comes on


Ok, check the brake fluid level for a start. This could mean a few things. Your brake pads might be worn down, which would bring a yellow warning light on(triangle), at the same time with the pads being low it will have displaced the fluid, making the level low, this would be a red light on. Now because of this the body control module has detected these faults, will have turned the abs off, hence the abs light.
If brake fluid is low, this could confirm my theory.
If its low, top up with dot 5 brake fluid and take to garage to have new pads fitted.
