Question about Chevrolet HHR

Open Question

2008 HHR. I hit a bump on a bridge and the tcs, brake and abs light came on and will not go off. Everything seems to be working okay, the lights just stay on. I have tried to disconnect battery for 15 or so minutes and they all come back on. I had it hooked up to a computer and it read some code pertaining to the ECM. This small shopped looked the codes up and said I would have to take it to a dealership. I cannot afford to even have the dealership hook it up to a computer much less fix it. Help!!

Did you use the correct brake fluid? Did you put custom wheels on your car? Do you have a leak in the brake line? Make sure that the brake boost hose is attached to the air-intake on the top of the engine to the left side. This is a black rubber hose. May be one or more calipers are sticking unnoticed to your braking. check you master cylinder to see if it is working.

ABS light come on when i am towing


the tcs system is detecting the weight and sway of the trailer because the load on the hitch is too much- that's the simple answer.

The ABS and TCS work together - the ABS system is what detects wheel spin and tell the TCS which diverts and/or control power.

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 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, brake, esp/bas, and esp/tcs lights all came on at once. Every time I start the car they are off and about thirty seconds into motion they all come on. Brakes seem to be functioning fine. ...


Most likely ou have speed sensor that Is not giving the correct info. At startup the abs does a self check and since the light stays off until you drive it there is no issue with the systems integrity. The light comes on after you start to move because the system is not seeing the info it should be seeing. Your best course of action is to have the abs system scanned for trouble codes. This will help narrow the possibilities. Once you have the codes post them here.

Abs & TCS-off dash lights both stay on. Pushing the TCS off switch does not help. "seem" to stop fine. Emergency brake seems to be fully off, not dragging. My wife encountered a patch of ice...


Hello: If there is a problem in the ABS it will bring on the tcs light as well. To determine what is causing the problem you need to have the ABS checked with a scanner to get the code. Then trouble shoot the components that the code leads you to. Normal braking is available with the light on but TCS is not as it relies on ABS for functioning the TCS.
