The only way to make the lights go off is to fix the problem and then use a scan tool to clear the codes once the problem is fixed.The ABS module is seeing a problem and that is why the lights are on.You need to get the codes from the ABS module.This will help in diagnosing the problem and finding out what is causing the likes to come on.Could be a sensor,a module,or wiring.This is why you need to get the codes.You can post back and I can help explain what the problem could be.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My trac light says trac off, and my abs light is on. what does that mean? I have a 1999 grand am Pontiac.


the trac light is the traction control, the abs light means the antilock brake system is not functioning properly. the trac control is no issue. the abs will not cause the brakes to fail but they will lock instead of pulsing.

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 light is on and no traction light is on. I have a Pontiac Grand Prix 2001 gt. Light stays on always. I don't feel a problem with the brakes.


Check around all wheels to make sure the wires going to the wheel are intact and plugged in tightly. I had the same thing on my 2000 G.P. GT, in my case it was just a broken wire to one of the wheels.

2003 Chevy Impala Service Traction Sytem show on Dash


I can't answer the question about the gas fumes, but I had the same problem last year with the "Service Traction Sysytem" message and the Trac and ABS lights coming on in my Impala. Mine turned out to be because of a bad wheel bearing, that was causing the ABS and traction system not to work. I'm not sure if you've experienced this, but another thing that would happen with mine was that I would go to brake and have a hard time depressing the brake pedal, almost like it was pushing back. That is the point when the Trac and ABS lights came on.

Service traction light comes on abs off and brake light come on on the dash


I had the same problem. I took off the tires and look at the wires, and both of the wires to the hub were broke. 10 min and some tape and problem was fixed.

Enhanced Traction System Warning Light (TRAC OFF)


Sometimes it's a complaint with the ABS braking system. If it comes on and you have no other problems and stays on for while, check your brakes. I have had this issue before and had my brakes replaced. They were worn but for some reason were not squeaking.
