Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
My problem is .. the traction and Abs light comes on for no reason. I have been told I have a slight miss because of a sensor. I have been reading up on this and Have read that the sensor may cause this to come on.. anyone have any thoughts on this before I go spend money I don't have. I am a sinlge mom with 1 paycheck so be serious.
I had the same problem with mine and it finally got so bad that the light just stayed on all the time, you could turn the car of and on and the abs and trac light would come on. My problem ended up being the wire that goes to the abs/wheel sensor broke off the back of the sensor. You can see these wires if you take the tire off and turn the wheel hard to the right for the driver side or to the left for the passenger side. The wires go in behind the disk brake and dissapear into the hub assembelly. I simply soldered the wire back to the sensor and all is well, saved me 600 bucks.

I had the same problem and it was the wheel bearing its self that needed to be replaced! their is a sensor that when the bearing is starting to get worn will turn on the dummy lights!

Mine always occurs during slow turns if I spin the wheel quickly.
Unless you are having a safety issue, I wouldn't change anything. Mine does this constantly (mostly when the motor is cold). I just restart the car and all is well. As long as the ABS light is off, the system will work (I had to brake very hard a few days ago, and it performed flawlessly).
