When both lights go on, it's a wheel speed sensor that isn't giving proper data to the abs control module which is like a computer.

If you use the OBD-II ABS Brake scanner, you'll probably find one of the wheel speed sensors is open or shorted.

The abs and traction control both use wheel speed to determine how to brake.

I bought an Actron OBD-II Brake Scan Tool off of Amazon for $116 delivered. It paid for itself.

You probably will have to change a front hub (left or right) in order to get the system working right again. The part goes for about $75 to $100 something.

And, if you have heavy duty J55 brakes, which is rare, then the hub costs over $750.00. That's the kind of hub I have on my Limousine from the year 1997.

Good luck fixing your abs/traction control problem.

VSC Light and 4L are blinking, check engine, and traction light are on


The warning lights can be connected - the traction control uses the engine to function, so if one system is acting up it can affect other systems.
You would need to have the engine and body computers scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

Parking Brake, ABS, Traction Control & Anti Skid lights on


One or more of the sensors in the wheels that are responsible for these functions is faulty. It is sending a signal that is mucking up the calculations that control the brakes and engine for traction control and anti skid. All of them need to be checked!
