Mounted on the ABS brake pump, facing the battery, right below the rad hose.

    You should have also lost your power steering because the steering is variable assist based on vehicle speed as well as your cruise control. Your electronic brake control traction module (EBCTM) is gone on the ABS module; very common catera problem and guaranteed to be your problem. It is mounted on the anti lock brake pump (aluminum block) where all the brake lines convene, left side of engine (right side from the front), behind and below the battery. It has two harnesses connected to it (make sure you remove the clips and retainers to release the connectors without breaking them) and 5 torx screws holding it in. You will need a varied tool small kit and torx drivers, tips, extensions, drivers whatever will get you to the party and let you take it out. There are 5 screws, you need to find them all and don't force it. Make sure all 5 are removed, they are all the same and have torx heads, I think an M6 torx driver if I remember correctly . You will also need a magnet to pick up the screws and tips you drop down the area. I took the rad hose off and the battery out to access it. Don't remove the ABS pump! The module is a pain to get in and out. There are places in the US that will send you a rebuilt one or rebuild yours with a full warranty for about $150 turnaround is fairly quick and this module fixes all your problems. I bought one from a wrecker for 25 and has been fine ever since. TC ABS light went off, power steering returned, speedo /odometer came back, ABS working fine and cruise is perfect again. To make your life easier and not have to get the computer to relearn from disconnecting the battery, I fed the car battery power through the cigarette lighter to maintain radio, computer settings before I disconnected the battery. Minimizes the work after you are done or you will have do the idle position relearn and so on. Let me know how you make out and I can be of any more help.

Where to find the traction control switch on a 2001 chevy cavalier


Doesn't have one ! The electronic brake control module turns it on an off when there is a problem ! Your light on ? DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored .
Traction Off
The IPC illuminates the traction off indicator when the following occurs:
• The electronic brake control module (EBCM) inhibits the traction control system. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination. The traction control system is disabled when the following occurs:
- For Chevrolet only, the shift lever is in FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) gear. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the powertrain control module (PCM) indicating the gear position.
- For Pontiac and Oldsmobile only, the body control module (BCM) detects that the traction control switch is pressed (signal circuit is low). The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the BCM indicating the switch status.
- The BCM detects that the park brake is engaged (signal circuit is low) and that the engine is on. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the BCM indicating the park brake status.
- The PCM detects certain malfunctions and is unable to perform torque reduction requests from the EBCM. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating that traction control cannot be performed.
• The EBCM detects a malfunction in the traction control system. The IPC receives class 2 messages from the EBCM requesting illumination of both the service vehicle soon and traction off indicators.
• The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.

Why is track off light on?


The amber TRAC OFF indicator will illuminate in order to alert the driver of an existing malfunction with the Enhanced Traction System (ETS). In this situation, enhanced traction will not be available. The ABS VI/ETS must be serviced in order to regain enhanced traction ability.

Probably a DTC-diagnostic trouble code stored in the EBCM - electronic brake control module !

My 2003 impalas traction control wont shut off tried a new switch it has new hubs on it any ideas


Before replacing parts there is a specific way to start diagnostics an a professional grade scan tool is a must ! a code reader can not access the body control module , or the EBCM - electronic brake control module or instrument cluster ! All these modules communicate on the class 2 serial data bus.
Begin the system diagnosis with Diagnostic System Check - ABS . The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
?€¢
The identification of the control modules which command the system


?€¢
The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit


?€¢
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.
The traction control switch is a input to the body control module, with a scan tool hooked up an looking at BCM data ,check for conformation the traction control switch is turning on an off !
SERVICE TRACTION SYSTEM The IPC illuminates the SERVICE TRACTION SYSTEM indicator in the message center when the electronic brake control module (EBCM) detects a malfunction in the traction control system. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination. The SERVICE TRACTION SYSTEM indicator illuminates for 60 seconds when the condition is present. The IPC sends a class 2 message to the radio in order to activate an audible warning.
TRAC OFF The IPC illuminates the TRAC OFF indicator when the following occurs:
?€¢
The electronic brake control module (EBCM) inhibits the traction control system due to a malfunction in the traction control system. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination.


?€¢
The body control module (BCM) detects that the traction control switch has been pressed (signal circuit is low). The BCM sends a class 2 message to the EBCM in order to disable traction control. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination. The BCM sends a class 2 message to the radio in order to activate an audible warning.

How to restore 1st gear lockout from abs/trac. module acting up w/o replacing the very poorly designed unit that has been proven to cause worse braking/traction than an experienced driver can perform.


hi. does this sound familiar.

Anti Lock Brake System (ABS) problem. Has trouble code C1243.

1. Pin test power and ground to the Electronic Brake Traction Control Module (EBTCM).

2. Stress test the power and ground by using a high beam headlight or blower motor to put a load on the system.

3. If power and ground are OK, remove the EBTCM and hot wire the pump motor. If it runs OK and is quite, replace the EBTCM. If the motor is noisy replace both the Motor and the EBTCM.

What does ebcm/ebtcm mean


An Electronic Brake Control Module, or EBCM, monitors the rotation speed of each wheel. The EBCM decreases the braking force to a wheel when it detects that the wheel is rotating more slowly than the other wheels. Additional details for GM vehicles in this link: absfixer.com/how_do_i_remove.

EBTCM is the Electronic Brake Traction Control Module device.

Good luck.

My speedometer's not working neither is my cruise control


It's your ETCBM ( Electronic Traction Control Brake Module ). Had the same problem . This will cause your speedometer , ABS brakes and check engine light to come on.You'll even notice your stering is a little stif. I had my mechanic remove it and sent it out to Module Masters for rebuild ( 5 year warranty ) Works like a charm now. Those guys are really great .Cost me with freight $160 plus mechanic to R & R it.
www.modulemasters.com

I found this info online . Most mechanics will say it is a Speed sensor, but after many hours and going that route you'll see what I mean.

PS: You can still drive the car ( carefully ) while you wait for the rebuilt unit to be returned.
