I have a 2002 Buick Rendezvous also. My all wheel drive light also comes on and stays on periodically. It usually happens when one of the wheel bearings goes bad. I have two replaced already and another will probably cause the sensor to light up my life again soon. I understand Buick is aware of the problem in the Rendezvous wheel bearings. Have your underbody mechanic check for tilt play in the wheels.

Check the speed sensor cable to see it is loose. I have had the same problem and ended up replacing the hub assembly.

Try undoing the negative battery cable, count to 25 and hook it back up, this should reset the brain in your computer system for your vehicle.

Engine power reduced appeared on the DIC of 2008 chevy cobalt


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

The security light will come on while driving my 2002 Pontiac Firebird and stay on or else I can sometime just get into the car and it will not start and the security light will stay on until it reset and...


I got a lot of information about this security stuff from this website. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/ When mine started acting up, i did a bypass on it. It was alot cheaper than a dealer mechanic. If you are looking to fix it correctly, I think taking it to the dealer is the best way to go, like said in above post.... Good luck

Kia four wheel stays on


Their is a fault with the electronics on the vehilces four wheel drive electrical circuits. This will bring up the malfunction indicator light, you will need to see a dealer with an electronics reader to find out what this fault code is meaning. Most dealers will read it for free, and then charge for the repair from that point. If it is an orange light, just get it to a dealer when you are able to. If it is a red light, avoid driving it and get to a dealer ASAP. this will prevent any possible further electrical damage and any other mechanical damage from what ever the fault maybe. Also, their is a safety issue if the fault is relating to a safety feature of the car. It is hard to pin point an exact fault and exact cost. Cost will vary with the type of fault and repair required. Goodluck!

On my 2006 Ford 500 the traction control light came on and stayed on. What does this mean?


when this light stays on it meands that the electronic control module has sensed a fault in the system and has diabled the Traction control, to find out wha this fualt is requires a trip to the local Ford dealer for a fault code test of the traction control system and diagnosis of the code found in the memory of the system.

AWD Light stays on


3rd dealer stated that the problem was in the differential pump valve, when the temperture sensor was giving a false reading and disconnecting the rear wheel drive. Replaced with GM Part 88896067, and it solved the problem. Mechanic stated that if it is ONLY the AWD light, then this is usually the problem. If the ABS Disable light also goes on, then it is the harness on the wheel sensor.

ABS LIGHT STAYING ON


Hi there,
If the light is on it means the ABS computer has detected a fault and it is disabled at present. You can try removing the negative battery terminal for 10 minutes then put it back on. Let the car idle for another 10 minutes and go for a drive . Try a couple of hard braking till the wheels lock. See what happens with the light. If it stays on then you'll have to get the computer scanned at the dealer's.
Let me know how you get on.
Cheers.

Regarding the corolla abs light, you need to get your local dealer to diagnose the fault, it is possible a wheel sensor giving a faulty reading but while the abs light remains on you have no abs. Worth getting it looked at promptly
