Question about 2001 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Abs, brake, and trac off lights all stay on. Went to the dealer they charged me $270 and five days later to tell me it was the battery and RF wheel sensor, then wanted $650 to fix. I took it home replaced the battery, RF and LF wheel speed sensors and still no change. Any Ideas?

    The paper work dose not have the codes but on the notes it says "Codes found RF wheel speed sensor, RF sensor circuit failure system under voltage. Inspect and test wiring to right front wheel speed sensor test for cause of system voltage low recommend replace right front wheel speed sensor and leaking battery." I'll call them up to see if I can get the codes and keep you posted.

    In order to look up any possible fix for this or solution I need the fault codes. I would also take this car back to the dealer and request your car be repaired for free, since they got it wrong. You will not be able to fix this most likely becuase you will need a Live data scanner to see what is going on in the system, the scanner to do this testing is about $1500.00

How to fix ABS/Brake light on


You probably have a bad wheel speed sensor. If you hook the car up to a scan tool that can access the ABS system it will tell you what the problem is.

2007 suzuki xl7 abs and trac and stability lights stay on already have had sensor replaced


you forgot to scan it first
and to read the FSM on results of above, sure.

sounds like your shop is incompetent; try a full ASE shop. they wont make excuses...

first off if the brakes are bad or weak the ABS will not be happy.
if the abs cannot control wheel spin, then just maybe its bad brakes.
huh?

in fact its that order
brakes
ABS (abs needs brakes that work or/ fails)
Trac. (track uses ABS to work) so.... is last. to fix.


the lights can go on ,even when driviing off road. or on ice
this is normal, it just means ,easy dude...
but if it sticks on, you scan it, did you not scan it first? at stick on?
buy a scan tool
my innova 3160 does full factory scan.

finding chapter 11 suzuki dealers are a problem. so.... id sell it , if not with all tools needed. buy a jeep. 10x better.
best year is 2006. imo

Battery light comes on stays on and then the car won't start


You appear to have soaked the abs system sensors in the wheels and shorted them out...A short can take a battery to zero in no time...Check out the car for shorts!

Steering wheel light is on after battery went dead (along with traction control).


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

My ABS light stays on VSC OFF stays on & VSC Trac light stays on!! Had it at friends garage he turned off with computer, as soon as I drove away all the same lights came on Please help!!! local Toyota...


check the abs sensor rings on each wheel i suspect that one of the metal rings is turning on the drive shaft if so a couple of spot welds will do the trick

Abs and trac off lights come on together but Intermitting


You have speed sensors that tell your computer what speed each wheel is going, and if one fails, this happens. The brake pulse is from the antilock brake system thinking a wheel is slipping.

Brake failure urgent , abs light, low battery


So many lame responses...I went through this same experience and can tell you in my case it was the alternator. All of the warning lights such as the ABS light, airbag light, the warning about the brakes are all because the alternator is not providing the DC voltage all of the car's sophisticated electronics need to correctly monitor these subsystems' status. Mine left me high and dry by the side of Interstate 5 needing a tow. The low battery warning was off and on for about an hour before all of the other warning lights came on, and then about 5 minutes later every needle on the dash went to zero and the car died. After sitting waiting for the tow, it did start up again, but we got it towed to a dealer (thank god it got us within 8 miles of a dealer! the first warnings started when we were in the sticks) who diagnosed it as an alternator. $1200 and two days later and all is well again.

Service engine soon/ABS/Trac lights are staying on


Have the ABS codes scanned. This will get you started in the right direction. Possibility is that one or more of the wheel speed sensors is not working or intermittent - could be wiring or connectors on these as well. Another possibility is the EBCM, Electronic Brake Control Module. I believe the EBCM will throw 1216 code in many cases. THese can be rebuilt online for about $150.00.
The more likely problem is the wheel speed sensors. THese are an integral part of the wheel hub. About $100.00 each for the part. About $250.00 each to have them replaced. They can be tested with an AC voltmeter by spinning the wheel. Also, they should read roughly 850 ohms resistance. The ABS codes will tell you which ones are not reporting.

2004 Cavalier, Service light, ABS light, Trac Off light


Are you using a gel based battery?
Sounds like an overload on the charging system screwing the whole electronics of the car.
If not - get it diagnosed at a dealership.
Sorry.

My abs light and trac off light are both on


Def the wheel bearings/hub/speed sensor. I just bought a new wheel bearing comes with the hub and speed sensor as one. Runs about 80-100 dollars though but abs/traction light went off and stays off now.
