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.

Abs light came on


What it looks like: The traction control warning light typically takes the form of the acronym "TC." Sometimes this light is a small illuminated picture of a car losing control What it looks like: The traction control warning light typically takes the form of the acronym "TC." Sometimes this light is a small illuminated picture of a car losing control. How this system works: Traction control uses wheel speed sensors to detect when one or more of the car's wheels lose grip and traction. When the system registers a loss of traction in one or more of the wheels, a computer will limit power to the wheels that are still in solid contact with the road to prevent a skid. Common reasons for this to happen:
  • ABS is malfunctioning: Traction control and ABS (anti-lock braking system) often share the same control module and internal self-diagnostics system. As a result, sometimes an issue in the ABS can trigger the traction control light. If this is the case, then both the ABS and Traction Control lights will be on.
  • Broken wheel speed sensors: Wheel speed sensors are usually in the wheel bearing assembly, and determine the rate at which each wheel is moving. The sensors relay that information to the traction control module, which determines whether or not power needs to be shifted. Wheel speed sensors can get dirty or damaged and stop working, which prohibits the traction control module from knowing when to enable the system.Traction control module is faulty: The traction control module - which, again, is often shared with the ABS - can malfunction and break altogether, causing the system to stop working. What to expect: A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the traction control issue, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs. How important is this service? It's important to have the traction control issue investigated as soon as possible, as adverse driving conditions can arise at any time. While your car is unlikely to incur further damage from a faulty traction control system, it won't be safe to drive in rain, snow, sleet, or other inclement weather, or even possibly through pools of water on the road. Furthermore, the issue that is causing the traction control light to illuminate could also be impacting the ABS.

Service engine, antilock brake, and trac off sensors are lit in 98 Olds Intrigue


Yes it is possible that you have a bad wheel bearing which has the abs sensor in it. Hence the abs light on. Traction control utilizes the abs as inputs therefore traction control will come on.

I have a 99 intrigue and my ck eng abs trac off and service eng lights all came on while driving? car is running fine


OK, the abs traction control lights are usually turned on when there is a problem sensing speed in any of the 4 wheels of the vehicle.

The speed sensor in the wheel hub or this area may be the culprit.

I'm not sure why the service engine light would go on at the same time, though, unless there's a problem with computer.

I would try to hook the OBD-II computer up to a scanner for ABS Brakes using an Actron Brakescan tool, for instance to try to get plain english descriptions and numerical codes to try to narrow down the problem.

A regular OBD-II Engine Scanner won't tell you about the ABS brake problem, though, but might shed light on the check engine problem.

So you need 2 separate scanners to diagnose the problem.

Good luck on this diagnosis and repair.

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

Anti Lock, No Traction and Service Engine Light on


The wheel speed sensors are in the wheel bearings, so they should be okay. There is a a technical service bulletin for issues with the wiring harness that sends the signal from the sensors...if the harness is damaged it will act like a faulty sensor.

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.

in each wheel you have a traction control sensor that feeds info to the computer. You may have pinched one of the wires. I also had the same thing happen and found that was the answer.
