^ all of the lights coming on at the same time are related its not a hub bearing or it being low on fluid, it has to be a BCM or the abs control module

Brake fluid light goes on when the fluid is low. The traction control light may go on as well if the module detects a fault in the traction control system. The abs light may go on at the same time as the trac light if the wheel speed sensor is not sending a believable signal to the abs/trac module.

If one of the wheel speed sensors is faulty, or a hub is bad, that can cause the problem described.

Good luck on repairing this problem.

SOURCE: low brake fluid light, trac off light, and brake

All of these lights are inter related to the brake system, check the brake fluid first, if it's low check the pad thickness, then for a leak.

SOURCE: my 01 impala the trac

Hello: Check the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir under the hood on the drivers side against the bulkhead between the engine compartment and passenger compartment. If it is low your brake pads may be worn or you could have a leak. If the fluid is not low the the fluid level sensor may have failed. The sensor slips in a slot at bottom of the fluid reservoir, to remove release a catch on sensor and push toward the driver side. NO FLUID WILL LEAK OUT.

For some reason these vehicles you need to bleed brakes several times, had same problem, so air hangs up in lines somewhere it apears. When you say brakes sticks, describe it better, locked up, or dragging on rotors?

run a fault code reader to reset the abs and trac lights as the trac light uses the same sensor as the abs.. IF the pedal is still soft then there is still air in the brake system. You may have to crack the lines at the master cylinder first and bleed there first then start at the longest line and work back to the shortest

ABS light, Brake light, and trac control lights on no brake problems. have to turn off engine and restart to clesr lights 2001 windstar


You most likely have a problem with the ABS brake system. First, check your brake fluid level as many vehicles have a fluid level switch that monitors brake fluid level and if the level is low it can turn off the ABS and turn on all those lights.[ABS is part of the Trac control] If that is good then you may have a failing wheel speed sensor, wiring, or a problem with the ABS controller itself which would require having someone connecting to and reading the ABS service codes with a scan tool to identify what the system saw that caused it to turn itself off. Brakes are a very important safety item so you should get it repaired as soon as possible!

Parking brake light turns on while driving down the road. with the parking brake off.


hi from uk if you are saying the parkbrake warning light on dash comes on whilst driving ?? this light/warning is also linked to the brake fluid reservoir level and if level is low ? it will cause parkbrake light to come on the low fluid level may be simply the displacement of fluid as the brakepads/shoes wear thin over time so req's topping up however !if fluid is very low? may i suggest you make sure you do not have a leak somewhere ie cylinders? considering age of vehicle might be worth checkingbrke pads if not recently replaced ? and renew them if req'd? hope this helps ?

VSC, Trac off, and check engine lights are on


I took mine to the dealer to find out why the VSC, Trac off, and check engine lights are on. They said it is the camshaft position sensor, it retards the timing, and causes it to lose power when climbing. Also, 1 of every 30 to 50 scions have this problem. Sounds like it should be recalled for this. The cost of replacement is about $500 bucks. Get your dry belts and valve cover gaskets changed at the same time to avoid labor charges later. I couldn't believe the dealer charges $89 bucks an hour for labor these days, Rediculous. At least it comes with a a 12 month unlimited mileage warrenty.
