    I have a similar problem with a model year 2000 Silhouette. The ABS & Traction Control light come on at start-up and stay on. Re-starting is not a problem though as engine does not die. Ocassionally, the ABS motor cycles while driving. Pedal pulsation is felt, but no effect on braking. I SUSPECT it may have something to do with power brake fluid sensor or resevoir level, but have not pinned that down, i.e., lights do not seem to come on when vehicle is sitting at a slight nose-up incline. Hmmm!

    I have a 2003 Olds Silhouette, 124,000 miles. Abs and Trac light started to come on along with Service ABS system light. Took it in to shop, they did diagnostic check & inflated all the tires and said it was OK. It was for 3 days, then the lights came on again, so this time, I put air in the tires. Once again, no lights for 2 days, but once again, the lights are back. It cannot just be tire pressure, but car runs OK and runs well even though warning light are on.

    Any suggestions ?

    I have the same problem on my 2000 olds. Only now the turn signals and the flashers are acting up too. The flashers flash alternatly with the head lights and the left turn signal flashes faster when i apply the brakes. This sucks because I like my van but now I am affraid to drive because something else might go wrong or I might get stopped by the police for the turn signal thing. What to do?

Service engine, antilock brake, and trac off sensors are lit in 98 Olds Intrigue


Yes it is possible that you have a bad wheel bearing which has the abs sensor in it. Hence the abs light on. Traction control utilizes the abs as inputs therefore traction control will come on.

Abs light is on and tractiioncontrol light says off but cant turn it back on with switch


abs light means that a problem is being sense in the anti lock brake system, Traction control only activates when needed and is not related to the abs light, if you turn the traction control on and try driving and making the car slide the traction control will activate.but as for the abs light you need to get your brakes checked.

There's a little light that says "low trac" that goes on when i turn on my 1998 chevy cavalier.... what does it mean??


means the traction control module is bad. That light is suppose to come on when you lose traction to let you know the traction control is kicking in.

Abs light on and traction control light on


On most vehicles with traction control, the abs system monitors it. If there's a issue with the ABS, the traction control wont work. Check sensors on all 4 wheels and make sure they're not cracked or broken

you probably push air into the ABS unit when getting your lines replace but the Traction Control light might be on because the system might use the wheel speed sensor on the ABS unit to enable the Traction Control.......

ABS/traction control 1998 lincoln towncar


sounds like the brake pads may be metal to metal, that could be the noise problem, but until u have the system tested for the trouble code that is setin the ABS modules memory when the light comes on you are guessing, the Dealer is the only one in most cases that has the scan tool to check ABS trouble codes.

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue


An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
