The ABS system is failing the self test during the initial start up. The usual cause for this is a bad wheel speed sensor. The best thing to do is start by scanning the ABS module to see what code(s) are present. Once you know what the codes are you will have a much better idea of what is wrong.

    Mechanics commonly diagnose this problem incorectly. Have a certified mechanic check your ebcm it is your electronic breaking controll module more then likely its going bad. it is often over looked becuase not all cars have that part.

Abs and traction control light remain on.brakes were checked and are fine.any suggestions.


Most likely one of the wheel ABS sensors is defective, it makes the vehicle think that one wheel is turning at a different speed to the others which causes issues for both the ABS and the traction control.

Abs and tcs lights on what do they stand for?


ABS stands for anti lock brake system.
TCS stands for traction control system.

I recommend having your abs system diagnosed for faulty sensors, control module, etc. With the abs light on the traction control system is designed to disable because it utilizes the abs system to automatically help control your vehicle in loss of traction situations.

Abs light on and traction control light on


On most vehicles with traction control, the abs system monitors it. If there's a issue with the ABS, the traction control wont work. Check sensors on all 4 wheels and make sure they're not cracked or broken

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.
