Most of the time when your abs light is on you have a wheel bearing going out the abs sensor is made into your wheel bearing and when the bearing goes bad it turns on your abs light, you can take the car to a local advanced auto or autozone if you have one around and they can tell you which one of your bearings are going bad. hope this helped

Service engine, abs, trac off


The service engine light does not affect the abs.You most likely have a broken wire in your abs system which is affected by suspension movement.A code reader which does abs codes will tell you which wheel circuit is turning on the abs light.When there is no abs available the track will turn off.

I don't understand the whole traction light thing. my car always says trac off-except when it says low trac and slides like it's on ice.


TAKE CAR TO A GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP HAVE THE ABS BRAKES AND TRACTION CONTROL CODE SCAN.YOUR ABS BRAKE SYSTEM WILL COME ON ADJUSTING BRAKE PRESSURE TO AVOID A SKID.THAT WHY LOW TRAC LIGHT COMES ON. MOST OF THE TIME WHEN YOU SEE LOW TRAC LIGHT DRIVING ON DRY ROADS PROBLEM IS IN THE ABS BRAKE UNIT OR BAD WHEEL SPEED SENSOR.

My trac light says trac off, and my abs light is on. what does that mean? I have a 1999 grand am Pontiac.


the trac light is the traction control, the abs light means the antilock brake system is not functioning properly. the trac control is no issue. the abs will not cause the brakes to fail but they will lock instead of pulsing.

The abs/vsc/trac and check engine lights stay on. could this be a problem associated with emission control?


Its possible.

Whenever the check engine light comes on the VSC and Traction control will disable because they need the engine at 100% in order to function correctly. Since the ABS light is on I would have to wonder if it isn't an abs problem. Since the VSC and Traction control use the ABS sensors/system to function.

Or there is a problem with both the engine and the ABS.

The only way to know for sure is to have the PCM scanned and the ABS module to see what is goind on.

What do i do when the anti brake like has just come on. and what does it mean when the trac light is on?


ANY TIME ABS LIGHT OR TRAC LIGHT COMING ON THAT MEANS EITHER ONE IS NOT WORKING NOT GETTING NO OR ENOUGH POWER.CHECK ABS FUSE AND RELAYS. IF RELAY AND FUSE OKAY.MAKE SURE YOUR ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE OUT PUT AT BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS IF 11.0 VOLTS DUE TO VOLTAGE REGULATOR FAILURE. THAT WILL CAUSE ABS AND TRAC LIGHT TO COME ON.IF ALTERNATOR CHECKS OUT OKAY.TAKE VECHICLE TO GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP THEY HAVE TO SCAN THE ABS BRAKE SYSTEM.

Either someone damaged a sensor for the ABS/TRAC control, or the replacement parts are not compatible with the ABS system.

I will bet money that it is the ABS/TRACS module. It is mounted under the master cylinder on the bottom of the ABS unit. These are very, very, very common failures. I have replaced hundreds of them in my career. To answer your other question, the TRACS system uses brakes. For example: in the snow, when the L or R wheel is spinning faster than the opposite, the TRACS will apply brake to the spinning wheel to slow it down to an equal speed. Hope this helps.

Why does the LOW TRAC and ANTI-LOCK warnings light up a majority of the time when I am driving? What is LOW TRAC?


low trac light and abs light run hand in hand. first thing id check is the code stored in abs module. youll almost guaranteed to find a bad abs wheel sensor--which to replace is a wheel hub assembly ....hope that helped you out
