It sounds like your computer in your vehicle has to be reset. Disconnect your battery cable for about 5 Min's or so and make sure your battery posts are clean. Make sure your radio A\C and other electrical devices are off before you reconnect the battery. After reconnecting the battery, restart your vehicle and let it idle for about 5 to six Min's or so for all the sensors to reset. Drive it a few miles after that. If you still have a problem you should take it to the dealer or a auto shop to be put on their diagnostic machine to find out what the problem is.
Hope that helps...

Hi, the screeching noise could be a wheel bearing,if there is enough play in the bearing this could give a bigger air gap between the abs sensor and reluctor which would bring the abs/tcs lights on.

1. Check the negative terminal where it is grounded on the chassi (frame) or block. Clean and secure connection. Also, look for an additional ground that my be connected from the hood to the rear fire wall. These are usually found on the passenger side; if none are found, get some wire and run it from the hood to the rear fire wall, or side fire wall on either side of the engine compartment.
2. If the car can be jump started: the alternator tests good, the battery tests good - start looking for blown fuses - replace any that are bad. Also, replace the starter relay as it may be shorting out and be bad. This can be found under the hood in the fuse/relay box usually placed near the battery (just behind battery).
3. I also suggest having a technician perform a diagnostics test done before any other parts are replaced (except ground from hood to firewall). This will help diagnose a more accurate issue as why this is happening, and will save you time and money from replacing random parts. Have them test the ECM {electic control module) or "brain/computer".
Please let me know if you need further assitance.

What does abs and tcs stand for the indicator light stays on and needs attention is it the brakes

ABS - antilock braking system
TCS - traction control system

If the warning light is on then there is a fault in the system, usually one of the sensors on each of the wheel hubs that measure the speed of the wheel.

My brake light, ABS light and TCS light all appear on dashboard.This all occurred after my van wouldn't start in extremely cold weather. I'm afraid to drive the van. My husband thinks it might be low...

The brake light may be on because of low fluid.The traction control is on because the abs light is on.System requires the abs to be actively working for traction control to work.The most common cause of this is a wheel speed sensor which on this vehicle is part of the bearing hub assembly.You will need a scan tool to locate where the fault is in the abs system.

TCS light comes on

the tcs is ur traction control system this reads the wheels and if one slips cuts down power to engine so as not to damage engine or trans also if awd will activate the other wheels for traction the sensors are usually part of the abs[anti-lock brakes] check connections and wires as well as the sensors at the wheels and transmission -since the light is intermittent which would indicate a short or a sensor is about to fail the vehicle will store the code as pending -have vehicle scanned some auto stores do this for free such as auto zone/ advanced auto check ur local area the code will tell u where the problem is coming from
