Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6003525-abs_traction_control_lights . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

In your case, also look over the ABS system itself, as they may have bumped it during the engine installation. If you can't find the ABS system, please get back to me with model and year info.

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.

SOURCE: Traction control

Lvan....Have you had the codes pulled for the ABS failure? I would not be supprised if you have a wheel speed sensor failure.
Check with your local Auto Zone or other after market part store, they will pull codes for you for free in most cases.
Let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: abs light/traction control light

You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.

This is normal for your anti-lock brakes to quit when the abs light is on.What you will need to do is retrieve the codes and then you can find out what part of the abs system is giving you the problem.This will also cause the check engine light to come on.You can post back and I can help you with the code or codes that are in the brake control module.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Engine light and ABS traction control light remain

The ABS sensor is a speed sensor also for Traction Control. This is why both lights are on , One of your front ABS sensors are bad or disconnected, or has a pinched wire.

There is a diagnostic code P1625 for 2001 Saab 9-3 convertible with 88,115 miles. Is this an expensive fix?


P1625 means that the engine computer has lost communication with the antilock brake and/or traction control computer for at least 3 seconds. How expensive this is depends on why it has lost communication, It could be something as simple as a loose connection at a wiring connector or a broken or shorted wire in the PCI bus circuit inside the wiring harness. (Which may require considerable diagnostic time to find) or it could be an internally failed ABS module.

Recommendation:
If you are NOT experiencing ANY of the symptoms below, I would simply clear the code and move on.... It is an intermittent fault that you will most likely not find very easily. If you ARE experiencing ONE OR MORE of these symptoms, then the problem needs to be diagnosed by checking the ABS module's ability to communicate with a scanner while testing the PCI Bus circuits.

Other possible symptoms of Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1625
• Speedometer malfunctioning
• Traction Control malfunctioning
• Antilock Brake System malfunctioning or ABS light on
• Cruise Control malfunctioning

The abs/vsc/trac and check engine lights stay on. could this be a problem associated with emission control?


Its possible.

Whenever the check engine light comes on the VSC and Traction control will disable because they need the engine at 100% in order to function correctly. Since the ABS light is on I would have to wonder if it isn't an abs problem. Since the VSC and Traction control use the ABS sensors/system to function.

Or there is a problem with both the engine and the ABS.

The only way to know for sure is to have the PCM scanned and the ABS module to see what is goind on.

Abs and traction lights stay on saab 9 3 2005 1.9 vector sport


The abs light , when on turns off the traction control thats why that light is on,once the abs is repaired the traction light will go out, you need to first have the computer scanned for codes, the codes for the abs are stored in the abs computer, these codes will tell you what part of the system is not working. most of the time its a wheel speed sensor but scanning the codes is needed to find out,

Engine dies when anti lock light comes on


The ABS light should only come on when there is a problem in the ABS system: a wheel sensor or hydraulic unit problem.

The ABS system shouldn't be interconnected to the engine system so that an ABS fault shuts down the engine. Are you sure as to cause and effect? Could a shorting out of the ignition switch (thereby switching off the engine) be lighting the ABS lamp?

Get a wiring diagram and check for good grounds at the appropriate locations for a 1990 SAAB; also check for possible shorting out of the ignition switch under fault conditions.

The best source of info on this car is the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon!

16 valve manual: http://www.amazon.com/Saab-900-Valve-Service-Manual/dp/0837603137

8 valve manual :http://www.amazon.com/Eight-Official-Service-Manual-1981-1988/dp/0837603102

The ABS system is complex, and best worked on by a trained and trusted professional.

Hope this points you in the right direction!

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue


An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
