I was told by Mr. Transmission an Auto Repair place that my cylinder #3 had a misfire but there wasnt any more details given because they would have to do a full diagnostic & i dont have the funds for...

If you just tuned it up...the misfire probabley will be for the sevice soon light on.....go to Autozone and let them put it on the computer to see what is wrong (it FREE). for your ABS and trac....its probabley going to be a dirty or bad wheel sensor..Hope this gets you started in the right direction ??

Abs, low coolant, trac off and service engine soon light comes on when running had a tune up and have the same problems please help wht else could be the reason.

multiple issues.

for abs and trac, please see my tip at . 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.

for coolant light I assume the coolant level is good. If yes, remove the connector from the sensor on the reservoir. If the light goes out, replace the sensor. If light stays on, the wiring is shorted and you'll have to trace it to repair the short.

for the engine light, please see my tip at 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.

My "trac off" light came on and my anti-lock light and "service soon" light.

You will need to have the computer scanned for codes, the codes will tell you where the problem is, when the abs light is on it will turn on the other lights the ser light and trac light, once the abs if repaired the other lights will clear, the most common problem with these is one of the wheel speed sensors go bad, hope this helps.

Abs light ,trac off, and service engine soon would come once in awhile, but now its on all the time. my turn signals sometimes won't work either.

These are differnt issues. The Trac off light is on because the ABS is on most common reason is because of a bad abs sensor which is part of the wheel bearing unless there is any damaged wiring.Your check engine light is on for another reason there could be many possibilities.The turn signals may be the hazard switch or turn signal switch. You should take to a repair facility that has a scan tool to tell you what are causing the abs and engine lights to come on.

Service engine soon light and trac light and abs lights

i believe you are talking about the wire to the ABS sensor - this will turn on the trac and ABS lights, but not the service engine light, that is a seperate system and will be a seperate problem. if it is the connectors that are coming apart, there must be a problem with the locking mechanism on one end. look closely and see which one is damaged. you can buy repair connectors for these wires, ac delco brand, available at any good parts store. they usually come with instructions, but it is a simple procedure - cut off the damage connector, and the repair harness comes with crimp connectors. be careful to hook up the wire in the proper configuration. good luck!

ABS, brake, trac control, service engine soon light came.

I'm sorry to say that you will need to see a dealer or repair shop so they scan your ABS for trouble codes first and then find your problem.

Parking light (repair light) came on with abs, trac off and service engine soon lights. Bearings are fine, but there could be a front caliper problem,

There is a problem with one of your speed sensors, or the ABS module itself. Get it checked out to know for sure what is going on.
