T/c stans for traction control. traction control and abs use the same sensors, therefor if 1 sensor is bad, neither options will work. 1 of the wheel sensors must be bad.

Abs or Antilock Brake System keeps tires from slidding on icy/slippery surfaces there should be wires behind the tire that go to the hub idk if u can see wires with the tire on but it also could be a bad wire to check this start the car and see if you have power to the "hot" or positive wire if you do it is most likely the sensor is bad there is a sensor on both front tires so make sure u check both for power and also check the hub there should be a bunch of nubs that stick up which is what the sensor reads off of to tell if the tire is skidding look for broken nubs if it is the sensor its about 20-35 depending on location ur at and store I will try to add some pictures of the abs sensor location

I took my middle console apart to fix my new stereo but when I put it back together I forgot which connector was for the rear defrost button. I have a 1999 Mercury Cougar. They all look the same

I appreciate any ideas that will help me diagnose what is tripping the warning light for the ABS/RSC system. I have a 2008 Explorer, 4x4 drive, with the V6 engine. It has just over 124,000 KM on it.
The ABS RSC warning light and beeping occurs on occasion as well. If I go really easy on the brakes, all is well.
I have Inspected all brake pads. They looks ok, . I have also inflated the tires so that they are perfectly equal.
Both the ABS and the RSC warning lights turn on.When i check with one work shop, they scanned and they found B1342 error code, and they said i need to replace entire ABS system.
Can anyone help?

ABS is not working but the ABS light is not on.

Early ABS can lock up the tires, best bet is the pads need replaced and there is air in the system.

the system in a Honda is very complacated for the ABS it reads each tires speed for it to be able to pressurize the caliper according to the tires speed individualy controled if you say you had a loss of power you might want to get a pro to check the system and make sure everything is working correctly Hondas are like the Porsche for us Middle class people do not attempt work on this your self you can mess up the calibration of the ABS and get stuck with no brakes

My ABS light is coming on what does that mean?

1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

As for the ABS light, that means your antilock brake system has detected an issue such as a block sensor, or a faulty relay, etc.. when this light is on, it means that your abs may not engage when it should, or may engage when it shouldn't.

Mini one warning lights

This is the flat tire light. either your tires are low on pressure or the flat tire light button is stuck down. if your tires are low refill to same pressure I usually use 35 psi. then start the car stay parked. depress the flat tire button located either under the ebrake or just to the right of the ebrake. hold for 10 sec. then drive car for 5-10 min do not drive hard. drive on normal roads 25 -35 mph then drive on the highway. If the button is stuck find some kind of electrical cleaner and just keep trying to clean it till it no longer sticks down.
