The abs is your anti-lock braking system. It may work with your traction control light, I'm not sure. But you apparently have a problem with your anti-lock brakes. It could be the hydraulics or it could be the brakes themselves. I would have it checked out.

Why does the "service traction system" and "service ABS" light to come on when driving?


The service ABS light on while driving means that the ABS wheel speed sensor is defective or a broken wire that goes to the sensor. You now only have regular braking. This means that you can now lock up one or more wheels with hard braking. Then the car can swerve either left or right while braking hard. The traction control must also rely on the ABS wheel speed sensor to keep both front wheels spinning at the same speed for safety reasons. This prevents loss of control of your car while getting better traction with the tires.

My ABS and trac off light is on, what does that mean?


Hello anber...the "Trac OFF" light comes on when there is a malfunction in the ABS because the traction control system uses the ABS sensors and other components to apply brakes to the slipping wheel so that the other wheel will get some power. Not as good as a limited-slip diff, but better than nothing. With the ABS reporting a fault, the Traction Control cannot function, and its computer disables it--hence the light. Fixing the ABS should fix the Trac problem. I would start by checking the sensors and making sure the master cylinder is full of brake fluid. I hope this helps.

Abs and traction control light is on dashboard what does this mean


When your ABS light comes on it means you have no ABS only normal braking. Also a traction light will come on at the same time becaust it is directly linked to the ABS to change torque before a wheel slips. You need to have it hooked up to a professional scanner, because there are many different possibilities of what is wrong with the ABS/TCS system. hope this helps!!!

Abs light, trac light, service engine soon light 2001 Pontiac Grand Am


Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

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.
