Question about 1999 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

If the abs and trac lights pop on suddenly could it be an issue with my brakes themselves? Or is it just a malfunction with the sensors?

My ABS and trac off light is on, what does that mean?


Hello anber...the "Trac OFF" light comes on when there is a malfunction in the ABS because the traction control system uses the ABS sensors and other components to apply brakes to the slipping wheel so that the other wheel will get some power. Not as good as a limited-slip diff, but better than nothing. With the ABS reporting a fault, the Traction Control cannot function, and its computer disables it--hence the light. Fixing the ABS should fix the Trac problem. I would start by checking the sensors and making sure the master cylinder is full of brake fluid. I hope this helps.

I don't understand the whole traction light thing. my car always says trac off-except when it says low trac and slides like it's on ice.


TAKE CAR TO A GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP HAVE THE ABS BRAKES AND TRACTION CONTROL CODE SCAN.YOUR ABS BRAKE SYSTEM WILL COME ON ADJUSTING BRAKE PRESSURE TO AVOID A SKID.THAT WHY LOW TRAC LIGHT COMES ON. MOST OF THE TIME WHEN YOU SEE LOW TRAC LIGHT DRIVING ON DRY ROADS PROBLEM IS IN THE ABS BRAKE UNIT OR BAD WHEEL SPEED SENSOR.

The ABS system engages when it shouldn't and fails to shut off after the car is stopped. How many sensors are there on a 2000 Grand Marquis? How much do they cost to replace? Is the ABS light the...


TRAC is an option on ford products your better off without,
as it slams on the rear brakes & cuts out injectors, in the winter,
if the rear wheels slip. Really a bad invention. When you need
full control in snow,it is taken away.

The ABS is the electrical part of your braking system

As with any vehicle problem or check light, you get on your
dash,you should not be using the vehicle

You have the car checked for codes in a couple of days,
then diagnosed & repaired within a week

The abs & trac could be a bad wheel speed sensor,
you have 4 as well as other items in that system.

This is a social web site or forum,we answer questions from
home, as you can,so price questions would be addressed
at a repair shop. You never need a dealer for any vehicle
issues,ever,too expensive to go there

My trac light says trac off, and my abs light is on. what does that mean? I have a 1999 grand am Pontiac.


the trac light is the traction control, the abs light means the antilock brake system is not functioning properly. the trac control is no issue. the abs will not cause the brakes to fail but they will lock instead of pulsing.

Is it safe to drive my car when service abs lite comes on the dash board plus service trackion


This typically indicates a malfunction in the abs quite commonly an abs sensor/a bearing hub assembly. The abs will not function in this but should not affect the vehicles ability to brake properly in normal conditions. Remember that in slippery or wet conditions the trac and abs will not work and would advise having the vehicle serviced to correct your issue.

My abs light, trac light and service soon light comes on after driving the car for awhile. i have checked the wheel bearings and they seem to be ok. if it's just a bad abs sensor what happens if i don't...


Nothing. You will just be operating a vehicle with conventional hydraulic brakes, san abs and traction contol. There are many other things that can cancel your abs, and turn on the light besides a faulty sensor, although a sensor, or sensor wiring are by far the most common causes.Is your red brake light on also? If it is, this indicates a dangerous hydralic fault that will also turn on the abs light, but absolutely must be addressed for your safety. (and everyone else's) Good luck, and contact me with any ore questions!

Abs, service engine light and trac off lights keep coming on


Hello. The ABS [anti-lock brake system], traction control and service engine soon light are all interconnected. The ABS and traction control each depend on sensitive sensors to send a signal to your car's computer that there is a problem. The problem unfortunately is that the sensors themselves are bad. If your brakes still pump themselves when you stop fast, for example, then your ABS system is still working but one of your sensors is sending a signal anyways.
To check everything out you can take your car to many auto parts stores, or most recently AAMCO transmission stores, where they will scan your computer for free. Once the scan is done you will know exactly why the service engine soon light is on.
In the meantime, you do not need to worry about your brakes because all the ABS system does is pump them for you. You can still pump them yourself, like folks did for years before ABS came along. Same is true with the traction control. As long as you do not drive wrecklessly you need not worry.
So to summarize, call around to auto parts stores, or AAMCO to get a free scan. Once you have those results you can decide on how to proceed.

Abs light and brake light are on. also service


You can test the wheel speed sensors by unhooking the connectors and put ohmeter test leads on the sensor terminals should read around 1100-1600 ohms also the connectors themselves were bad for wires breaking inside the insulation at the connectors from flexing when the wheel is turned back and forth..Note excessive wheel bearing noise from bad bearings have also been known for interferring with clean abs signal also causing abs codes good luck
