2006 Buick rendezvous traction control alarm going off periodically and service traction control system soon lights turn on. Also lights indicate that my abs and parking brake have been disabled


Need to get the codes read. Probably a bad wheel speed sensor which will require a replacement wheel hub assembly. All of those systems rely on the wheel speed sensors to operate properly. The brake light is not indicating that the parking brake is disabked, rather that the is an issue with the braking system

The Brake warning light comes on. I checked the brake fluid level in master cylinder & it was okay. The fluid looked dirty. Please help


Sharon, Check to make sure emergency brake is not on and fully released, try not to drive your vehicle if the red brake warning light is on. Could have air in the system from a small crack in brake line, faulty master cylinder, faulty caliper etc. Have a good tech. check braking system, diagnose and estimate repair.

My abs and brake light stay on while am driving


The computer has detected a condition that indicates a fault with the ABS/Traction system. Typically that's caused by a wheel sensor problem, but it can also be caused by a faulty connector, peripheral device or the computer.
The above is the shop or garage answear. How about telling us how to fix the problem , besides replacing the computer or wheel sensor? How do we check these things?
Sometimes can be as simple as a short circuit in the rear break lights or a faulty connection in the break lights.
You can start checking the break light system. Then the sensors and finally the computer.

Why are these lights on in my 2008 xl7


These icons are yellow and as such do not generally mean there is immediate danger, but rather to alert you that service is needed when lit. There may be little or no change to the way the car drives or handles when these colored indicators are on (Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, etc.).

Red icons on the other hand indicate a serious condition that requires immediate attention when lit. This usually means stopping and shutting the engine off (Oil, Temperature, Brake, etc.).

The icon to the right of the Tachometer is the "Anti-lock Brake System" (ABS) indicator. This is not the normal state when lit. This means there is a problem with the antilock brakes but your regular brake system is working. You may experience longer stopping time in a "panic stop" due to locking up the brakes.

The Icon above the Odometer indicates the "Traction Control System" (TCS) or "Traction Assist" (TA) is *not* engaged. This is NOT the normal state. The TCS / TA is a secondary function of ABS, so it is not unusual to see these come on at the same time as a result of the same problem.

These systems are in cars made in the last 15 or so years and provide safer starts and stops via computer control of the application of the brakes. You should bring the vehicle to a trusted mechanic or dealer for proper diagnosis and an estimate for repairs. Until then, the vehicle *should* operate as normal, except in cases of slippery roads or emergency / panic stopping.

I hoipe this helps and good luck!

ABS, TRAC OFF, SERVICE VEHICLE SOON LIGHTS ARE ON. BRAKE PEDAL PULSATES INTERMITTENLY AND MAKES NOISE.


with these lights on then you will have to see what codes are in the abs and pcm module to find out what the problems are.the abs module will activate when the traction control lights come on.this can also cause a noise and pulsate in the brakes pedal.

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am Track off light and ABS light and Sevice Vehicle Soon light stays on all the time. Sometimes the emerge light comes on.(i, P light). For the Service Vehicle light, I...


the traction control system works off of the abs system so there is a code in the abs module that needs to be pulled so you know were to start to check the system out.the service engine light is a different system all together and there is a code in the ecm that must be pulled so you know were to start to check to repair that system.you don`t say why you jumped to the conclusion that the gas cap set a code.the emergency brake light will come on if the e-brake is not all the way in the off position(something may be holding the lever up just enough to put the light on.the switch could be misadjusted and needs to e readjusted.

Warning light on are trac off, anti-lock, brakes, service engine


You need to have the abs system scanned for codes. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor on one of wheels.
