Question about Pontiac Grand Prix

Open Question

1998 Grand Prix GTP. ABS & Tration Control Light were staying on so I replaced 2 front whell hub assemblies (per mechanics diagnostics/suggestion). Humming stopped, but the lights are still on. Would go on and off intermittenly 2 days, now both lights are on all the time. Checked abs wires in hub assemblies to see if disconnected/damaged and didn't find anything. Poking around the internet and keep hearing suggestions to replace the ABS/Traction Control module OR Engine Control Module. What is the difference and which would need replaced exactly? Looks like this is a common question. General answer (not much feedback if fix worked for others). Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: abs and traction control lights coming on

Its the abs sensor, if you encounter an ice patch or snow you won't even be able to stop because the pedal will will push back and make the rip grind noise. If you pull the ABS fuse out, you won't have ABS but you can stop and you won't have the grind noise and back pressure for now. Its safer to not have ABS when the sensor is faulty.

Also not coming to a complete stop before changing gears will cause that as well.

Traction control light coming on on my 2005 pontiac grand prix gtp on first take off


No different than the last vehicle problem you had

Trac Control is part of the ABS Braking System & may need professional tools, to get that modules codes,so save your time for free checking at the parts store, to be told nothing of value there

Traction light on


Traction light is part of the ABS brake system. I had to the same problem 2 years ago and my auto repair guy said it was my front hub bearing. I replaced both sides with new hub bearing (right & left wheel) and now I have to replace the left one again. The thing about 04 grand prix gt they have a wheel/hub bearing problems. GM never recalled for this problem

1998 grand prix gtp stalls when coming to a stop and low coolant light stays on but car does not run hot.


Stalls when coming to a stop- have idle control motor checked as this may possibly be the cause.
Low coolant light stays on- there is a low coolant sensor located on the radiator on the passenger side. They are known to go bad on these models, this is a possible cause. Have your mechanic take a look at it.

Front passenger brake is pulsing and there is no abs light on in my 1997 pontiac grand prix.I believe it might be abs sensor but don't know where to find it in wheel assembly.


A front brake pulsing with no ABS light is a rotor that is no longer true i.e warped. Pull off the tire and rotate the rotor. Hold a straight edge (ruler) across the outside of the rotor as your rotating the rotor. You will note that it changes distance on the straight edge / ruler as it rotates. (in out wobble) A good way to test for an out of true rotor is to drive at about 45 miles and hour and really stand on the brakes (do not lock them up) If the steering wheel and or brake pedal pulsate... you most likely have a rotor problem. If your rotor has never been "turned" it is probably time to do so.

The ABS sensor is behind the rotor on the lower control arm pointed outward toward the rotor with a flat button face. You can not see the button face with the rotor installed. If the sensor is bad you will have an ABS light. I think your troubleshooting the wrong problem. i.e rotor vs your current focus of the ABS sensor.

I would like some feed back on the running dynamic on the road brake test.

My ABS, traction control, and steering assist lights are on in my 2004 pontiac grand prix gt. The rear wheel bearing assembly was just replaced. what would cause this?


Hi, the wheel speed sensor and tone ring are built into the bearing/hub assembly. Make sure the new hub contains an ABS wheel sensor and the cable was properly connected. If it is properly connected, the new hub may be defective.

Abs code c 0036,front left wheel speed circuit range / performanc


I agree that it is more then like the the hub bearing assembly that also houses the speed sensor I would first check that there is no damage to the wiring that goes to the hub bearing that could be easy repaired, or debri that has been caked in between the sensor & the hub, use an air preesure to clean it out. Hub bearings are very expensive, so try this first. Good luck

Abs comes on then i restart the car and the light


Check the ABS sensor at the front wheel hubs, it may just need to be sprayed down with brake cleaner. Remove the front wheels and inspect the ABS sensors and wire leads, Check the gap between the sensor and the speed ring and Re-gap if necessary. Pay attention to the drivers side first, since that hub was replaced and the sensor may need to be re-gaped to the new wheel hub, or cleaned since the sensor is magnetic and may have pick up some metal filling from replacement of the old hub. Good luck and this is an easy fix, can be done in under 1 hour.

1997 grand prix gtp. Tire pressure/abs light


Hello! This indicates a fault with the wheel speed sensor/ABS sensor. Any major auto parts retailer can pull the details of this code (which sensor) for free, which will help you identify if the wiring is loose or damaged or if the sensor will need to be replaced. If you need to replace the sensor - you will need to replace the entire wheel bearing assembly, as the sensor is internal.


Thanks for using FixYa!

ABS Light is on, and TRAC off Light on. MIDAS


Either someone damaged a sensor for the ABS/TRAC control, or the replacement parts are not compatible with the ABS system.
