Any quick fix to get the abs and TC light to go off on a H2 Hummer


Unfortunately the cluster that displays the lights is not serviceable. Meaning you can't pop the cluster and remove the bulbs. Removing fuses or relays for your TC and ABS system will disable them, but the lights will stay lit.

ABS LIGHT AND TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT STAYS ON


ABS = Anti-lock Brake System.
TC = Traction Control System (Engine Control Module).
If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS & TC Electronic Control Units (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

I suspect bad brake pedal switch, but you should scan the ABS & TC ECU's.

Abs and tc lights on dashboard remain illuminated after reset


Bring it back to the repair shop that did the initial repair and have them complete this repair. There is something wrong. They have to reinspect their work and check the ECU for loose wiring and determine whether you need a new ECU.

THE TC light had a wrench beside it? And the TC light says the TC is off and the ABS light is now lit up. I tried pushing the button to turn the TC on and Off but this makes no difference


chances are there is a problem in the abs system, which also controls the traction control. have the car scanned for codes, which will give you a starting point for diagnosing. good luck!

Abs on dashboard stays lit all the time.


The only way to know axactly what happen is with a diagnostic computer.
Because the ABS use a Speed sensor on each of the wheels.
Hydraulic selenoids on the ABS box or Module..
If the light is on. its mean the Anti Lock Brake System is inactive., You gonna brake like any car with no ABS.
I hope this information work for you.
