You obviously still have ABS System problems &,
should have codes, to use to diagnose the issue
as was the case with the first hub assy R&R

You most likely are NOT getting the correct wheel speed
sensor data for some reason,find out why !

That is why the abs module is pulsing the brakes

Handbrake & traction lights on when applied brakes


All your doing is applying the brake pedal

That is the only computer input,so maybe the
switch is loose or bad- next to the brake pedal

I would scan for computer data & codes- especially
the body & abs braking system

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

Brake peddle is chattering 2003 ion and would like to pull the anti lock brake fuse (if safe ) until i can afford the repair. I would like to know witch fuse to pull?ABS is on and traction control


If brake pedal is chattering or pulsating it is most likely because you need either front or rear rotors, or both. They are rusted or out of round. If there is something wrong with either your abs or traction control,the abs or traction control light will come on & stay on. As soon as these lights come on, it automatically disables abs or traction control. If you would like to take out fuse that disables abs or traction control circuits, it will leave the lights on.You just wont have their functions. If by some strange condition your chattering goes away, then there is indeed something wrong with your abs or traction control.Fuses are labeled abs or traction either under hood or in your fuse panel in car.

Abs light comes on trackion light shuts off and while driving brake pedal goes to floor... what could this be causing this problem


If your ABS light is on then you will have to get the codes read to see what sensor is giving you the problem.The ABS light being on will also affect the traction control and brake pedal going to floor.Auto Zone will check codes but I`m not sure if they do ABS codes.They don`t charge so it wouldn`t hurt to ask.After you get the codes you can post back and I can help you find the problem.Good luck.

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.
