I'll try to answer these as asked.
1. check engine light is telling you that you have an emission control problem and needs to be scanned for codes.
2. The abs and traction control light are connected and when the abs sets a problem code it will turn both on , It also needs to be scanned for codes.
3. Having a tire that is a diffrent size or more worn than others will set the tire pressure lamp and it can be cleared by removing the fuse panel door on the side of the dash and holding the red button in with the key on engine off untill it flashes or beeps and goes out.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. What does it mean when the anti brake light, service engine soon, and traction off light comes on at the same time?


I am assuming its not the service engine soon light it is probably the service vehicle soon light, There are 2 lights service vehicle soon upper left side, and service engine soon upper right side.

When all these come on at the same time it is the wheel bearing sensor. Usually the wheel bearing needs to be replaced which houses the sensor. A sure way to check is to press your sls button by your shifter and see if the light goes out, If it does not, u will need to have a wheel bearing put in.

When I start my 2001 alero the anti-lock, traction light, service engine soon, service vehicle soon lights all stay on all the time. But my car seems to be running fine. Why is this?


the anti-lock and traction lights will come on together if there is a common problem with the two, since they are closely related. may be a wheel speed sensor or something similar. the service engine soon light indicates a problem with the engine computer, can be anything from an emission system problem or an engine performance problem. all of these lights can come on with no apparent running problems on the car. the service vehicle soon light is basically a maintenance reminder, an oil change light. take the car into a shop and have the codes read for these lights.

Service vehicle soon light, anti-lock brake light


There could be a hundred causes for a check engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.

The service light, anti lock light, and traction


you most likely have an ABS problem you will need to have it scanned to get the code

2001 olds alero, anti lock light on


I had the same problem when I first got my Alero. The problem turned out to be a bad wheel bearing. Seems odd, but I guess it's a common problem with Aleros. It's held up for two years without any further incident.

Took 800 mile trip


The ABS and traction control are ususally one in the same and will require a mechanic with special tools to diagnose. You can check to make sure the brake pads are not worn out (it is about time to replace them on this year car) that the wheel sensor wires are in one piece and amke sure the brake fluid is changed (This needs to be done every 24,000 miles on any car). As for the Check Engine light, you'll need a scanner to pull the code, but check the gas cap as this is the most usual culprit. We have a 2004 Grand Am (very similar to the Alero, but without the traction or ABS) and the only time the Engine light came on was when the cap was loose.

Anti-Lock and Trac Off lights are lit on my 1999 Alero, as well. They usually come on after about 5 minutes of driving, but are not always on when I start the car.
