Check your brake pads as the grinding noise could be the metal wear flags making contact with the discs to inform you that they need replacing. The traction control fault light may be on due to low brake fluid or fault in braking system, don't wait check it out ! Hope this helps

My tire is making a very starnge noise when accelerating and reducing speed,,now its impossible to drive as the noise is too harsh and it feels like the tire will pull out any minute,,diferent mechanics...

Not a Daewoo expert, but here are some general facts.
Not sure what the wheel is doing.
If the brake fluid is not returning to the master cylinder the brake pads will stay applied like you are pushing on the brake pedal.
A problem with an axle will cause a clunking noise when the wheel turns, especially when turning right or left.
A hub bearing will cause the wheel to grind, growl, or whine going down the road. Also wobble if it is almost gone.
If the brakes are worn out, the metal pads will grind on the rotor when you apply the brakes.

2002 Buick Rendezvous Service traction system and ABS lights, grinding when turning ans braking

The ABS and Service Traction system may be due to bad sensors or signal reaching the ABS/Traction Control computer. The grinding may be due to uneven or unsmooth rotors, and/or worn out pads or shoes.

I would recommend that the entire braking system be diagnosed at your local dealer or brake service facility.

Grinding havig to do with traction control on my

It sounds like the Dealer is trying to pass the buck or has terrible mechanics. As I read that you have a 2008 Model, there should be some warranties left either by Years in service or Mileage. First call the main Ford Customer service line for assistance.

You are partially correct about the Traction Control and bad weather. Here is how it works and I will later tell you about which components to check. The Traction C is suppose to stop the drive wheels from spinning at different Right and Left wheel speeds Period. Be it snow, rain or deliberately Lead footing the gas pedal it is suppose stop spinning wheels.

It is important for the mechanic to know how the vehicle measures these speeds. And knowing this the mechanic knows which components to check. Each wheel has a sensor and loose brake dust or rust can prevent the sensors from counting the turns of each wheel. Depending on equipment there can be additional speed sensors in the axles.

When the spins do not match, the Traction C kicks in, lights up the dash indicator and tries to balance the speed of the Right and Left wheel. The engine will cutout and the rear brakes will apply automatically to the fastest spinning wheel first, and then modulate until things are turning at the same speed.

This action will wear out the brake pads. It can warp the rotors and you will hear noise when you use the brakes and the pedal will pulsate if the rotors are warped. You should also check the rear Emergency brakes as a source of noise and for the rust that is blinding the wheel sensors.

That all this damage is there and the Dealer can not see it is something the main Customer service people should know about. Would be interested in the outcome of this.

Noises coming from th left frontwheel of my 2000 hyundia sonota could this be a hub and bearing noise

What kind of noises are you hearing? Most likely, you need to replace the brakes. It is very unusual for a 10 year old car to have wheel bearing problems, especially on the front wheels.

A squeal when you apply the brakes or a grinding/dragging noise while you are driving are signs that it is time to replace the brakes.

Abs and traction control lights coming on

Its the abs sensor, if you encounter an ice patch or snow you won't even be able to stop because the pedal will will push back and make the rip grind noise. If you pull the ABS fuse out, you won't have ABS but you can stop and you won't have the grind noise and back pressure for now. Its safer to not have ABS when the sensor is faulty.

2001 S Type Jaguar ABS and Traction Control fault lights on

Hi First I suggest that you get a diagonostic check on ABS system. and then a visual inspection of the brakes. Warped brake rotors do not make noice, but the steering will start to judder when brakes applied at around speeds from 40 up . Possible cause that the vehile picked up something from road such as nylon/ plastic/stone Mike
