1999 Windstar ABS/Traction/OD off light and speedometer

It started with the ABS and traction control light on, then the OD off light flashes once the car is on the highway and the speedometer becomes erradic at about over 40MPH. Ford recently changed the tranny because I had the OD light flashing, wondering if this is connected to the work they did?

Its a faulty sensor switch on your brakes master cylinder. It leaks brake fluid into the wires that are plugged into it and causes a short in the circuit, resulting in a blown fuse that controls the AC, odometer, speedometer, cruise control, and ABS light to come on. This problem can also cause a fire. The fire can occur even when the vehicle is off. To fix this problem go to this URL - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/

Where are the traction control senors in a 2009 chevrolet trailblazer?


The traction control uses the ABS wheel speed sensors (1 on each wheel - usually in the wheel bearing assembly). The speed sensor is for your speedometer. Do you have an ABS light on too?

Radio in the cars turns off and back on.


Radio: K134A Multifunction relay module under $100 at the stealership.

Speedo and traction control; check wheel sensors all 4, clean and blow the sensors and reactor rings.
Is ABS light on as well? if so, you need a EBTCM module mounted to the brake ABS pump facing the battery. There are palce in the US that rebuild them with warranty for under $150.

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.


If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

Flashing traction control lighton 1998 windstar


the code means that the traction control module is detecting a problem with the solenoid that controls the ingage/dis ingage of the wheels. also if the sending units of the ABS system are either moved or damaged this could also throw a code. seeing you just replaced the brakes and rotors i would start there.

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue


An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
