    ABS light comes on and goes off all the time every few minutes. Sometimes the brakes will just lock up on me when I am in a little water please help.

    Wish I could offer help - I can only offer another weird story about dashboard lights. Whenever I apply my hand break and hazards at the same time - the check engine light comes on. After I restart the car, the light goes off. Bizarre.

Check your master cylinder switch in the res. is not stuck down. When started is the light off until you go over 15 mph? If so check your abs relay. Good luck

What does the low traffic light mean in a 1998 chevy cavalier?

If your ABS light is on as well, have a shop scan it (it requires a special scanner). If it's just your Trac light without ABS, it is most likely a sensor under the hood at fault. If you are getting a check engine light as well, get the codes read!
This happened to me without an ABS light and it was the upstream O2 sensor. The reason it throws the Trac light is because if any components that the traction control uses (ignition, fuel) are affected by a bad sensor, the PCM shuts down traction.
In fact, when I replaced the O2 sensor, a handful of other little issues resolved as well.
If you do have an ABS light on, it could very well be a wheel speed sensor.

Any time you have an ABS problem the red brake light will also light up.Not sure but it could be that you just have a bad wheel speed sensor.There is a wheel speed sensor at each wheel.A quick scan of the ABS computer will tell you this.Let me know if this helps or if you have further questions.
