Why is my abs ans ets light on What does it mean


The most probable cause for the ETS (Electronic Traction Control System) light is the ABS light. When there is a problem in the ABS, ETS is disabled.

The ETS uses ABS data to help control the ETS system. You will need to have the ABS computer scanned for codes.

This light usually comes on if you have a failed wheel speed sensor but these vehicles are common for the ABS module to fail causing the same problem. You can back probe the wires comming out of each wheel speed sensor with the wheel lifted in the air and check for ac voltage as you spin the wheel.

What ever sensor does not put out voltage needs to be replaced if they all seeem to work it is likely the ABS module. But before you replace any parts you would want to have the ABS module checked for codes at one of your local shops that has a high end scan tool that can access those codes.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Will my ETS tracking system cause other problems to my car


If your ets light is on, it just means the traction control has been disabled due to a problem within the system. It will do no damage but you will be without any traction control and possible abs if that light is on too.

What does ETS mean and how to use it


Hello! ETS stands for Enhanced Traction System. It is a system that limits traction loss by utilizing the anti-lock braking system (ABS) to keep the tires from spinning on slippery or loose pavement. If you press the button, and the ETS light is illuminated on your instrument panel, that indicates that the system is disengaged. To engage the system, push the ETC button on the shift handle, and the light should go off. If it doesn't, that could be an indication that you have an ABS malfunction and you should have that diagnosed.

I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!

ABS / ETS lamp on dishboard appear to my mercedes E320 96


Have your brake pads and rotors checked if you have worn pads this will activate the ABS Antilock Braking System light. The ETS Electronic Traction System uses this ABS to prevent skidding if the tires should lose traction.

The ets light on the dash is on and i cant shut it off. what can cause this?


the ETS is electronis traction system. There is a switch on the shifter that controls the on/off function. If it does not there are several things that can cause this. A problem with the switch, wiring, and the ABS just to name a few. Have the car scaned and get back to me. Good Luck

Check engine light, ETS light and ABS Lights all on


You would need to get the codes read from the computer as these may all be related. A check engine light can cause an ETS, which inturn can cause an ABS, or vice-versa.
