PROBLEM ETS & ABS LIGHT ON

Posted by on

  • David_77 Apr 10, 2009

    I have the same problem and the fault reappeared within a few hours of changing the brake light switch.. Is there other wiring harness connectors between the switch and the car computer system, if so where, I now suspect another connector is causing the problem.

I replaced the break light sensor that sits right behind the break pedal. the part cost something like USD$18.00 and it took 3 minutes to replace.

Why is my abs ans ets light on What does it mean


The most probable cause for the ETS (Electronic Traction Control System) light is the ABS light. When there is a problem in the ABS, ETS is disabled.

The ETS uses ABS data to help control the ETS system. You will need to have the ABS computer scanned for codes.

This light usually comes on if you have a failed wheel speed sensor but these vehicles are common for the ABS module to fail causing the same problem. You can back probe the wires comming out of each wheel speed sensor with the wheel lifted in the air and check for ac voltage as you spin the wheel.

What ever sensor does not put out voltage needs to be replaced if they all seeem to work it is likely the ABS module. But before you replace any parts you would want to have the ABS module checked for codes at one of your local shops that has a high end scan tool that can access those codes.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Will my ETS tracking system cause other problems to my car


If your ets light is on, it just means the traction control has been disabled due to a problem within the system. It will do no damage but you will be without any traction control and possible abs if that light is on too.

What does ETS mean and how to use it


Hello! ETS stands for Enhanced Traction System. It is a system that limits traction loss by utilizing the anti-lock braking system (ABS) to keep the tires from spinning on slippery or loose pavement. If you press the button, and the ETS light is illuminated on your instrument panel, that indicates that the system is disengaged. To engage the system, push the ETC button on the shift handle, and the light should go off. If it doesn't, that could be an indication that you have an ABS malfunction and you should have that diagnosed.

I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!

My 1997 cavalier has and ets and chech engine light on no one knows what the ets light means can any one help. it runs finetill i come to a stop and the tack jumps up and down then shuts off but if i put...


Chevrolet customer service said the ets light means enhanced traction control (ets) check the fuses. if you do not find a fuse blown you need to take it to the nearest chevy dealer so they can run a diognostic on it to find the code and replace any electrical parts that need replaced so this light will shut off.

also you can contact them any time at

ABS / ETS lamp on dishboard appear to my mercedes E320 96


Have your brake pads and rotors checked if you have worn pads this will activate the ABS Antilock Braking System light. The ETS Electronic Traction System uses this ABS to prevent skidding if the tires should lose traction.

Check engine light, ETS light and ABS Lights all on


You would need to get the codes read from the computer as these may all be related. A check engine light can cause an ETS, which inturn can cause an ABS, or vice-versa.
