This is the procedure when any light comes on your dash

By the way-- the same since 1983 some 31 years


You turn on the key-all lights come on the dash
Start engine they all go off --no faults with OBD2 System
Once a MIL Lamp,check lamp,ABS,trac,etc come on,you
check for codes that day or the next
Then you know if you should continue to drive until you have
an scheduled repair shop visit
You make every effort to have the vehicle diagnosed & ALL
things repaired,fix,whatever,once & done properly,the entire
car checked over ,complete within a week.

No driving around & asking what to do for weeks
Your car has faults that don't meet federal emission standards
or could cause damage. You don't know until it is checked out

I have no idea who told you to unplug a wheel speed sensor
or why your driving around knowing you have to make a repair
eventually,get it over with.

Someday-- such as a transmission issue-- driving 5 miles will
cost you 5 thousand

You have ABS System problems,Wheel Speed Sensor---Maybe!!

SOURCE: ABS and TC light on, speedometer and odometer not working

I have the 2000 Cadillac Catera Sport and I had the same problem. ABS, TC light and no speedometer and odo. I thought it was an electrical problem however I solved the problem by refurbishing the ABS Module. If you bring to the dealer it will cost you $3,000. You can have your ABS module rebuilt try modulemaster.com they do it for about $200 I believe. I got mine fixed because a friend of mine removed them and soldered some loose connectors together. All it cost me was a case of beer! It worked for my car just a suggestion for you guys. My ABS Module was a Bosch 5.3. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: the check tire pressure light and ABS auto

The tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure. Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have been rotated. You should be able to re-initialize the system by following these steps:

1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

SOURCE: abs light/traction control light

You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


The light being on means the system has detected a problem in one or more sensors. The vibration is the ABS modulating the brakes to prevent skidding because it has detected a wheel that is locked up. That wheel is most likely the one sensor that is giving you the error.

I keep getting a message service stabilitrak


StabiliTrak Indicator Light: If the warning light does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem. If it stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your StabiliTrak system and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system is off and will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly.

This light will also flash when the StabiliTrak system is active. If the StabiliTrak system warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service.

The traction control part of StabiliTrak can be turned off by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if both systems (traction control and StabiliTrak) were previously on. To disable both traction control and StabiliTrak, press and hold the button for five seconds.

Traction control and StabiliTrak can be turned on by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if not automatically shut off for any other reason.

When the TCS or StabiliTrak system is turned off, the StabiliTrak light and the appropriate TCS off or StabiliTrak off message will be displayed on the DIC to warn the driver. Your vehicle will still have brake-traction control when traction control is off, but will not be able to use the engine speed management system.

If the StabiliTrak and/or Traction Control are not operating properly, I encourage you to take your vehicle in for inspection. A certified technician will be able to offer a more accurate diagnosis.

What is stabilitrak chevy


Stabilitrak is a design that lets the ECU and the ABS system share information. If you step on the gas pedal and loose traction, the ABS tells the ECU that you have lost traction. The ECU calculates what it should do to help and usually will ignore your request for "more fuel" (when you step on the gas pedal) and will reduce the power to the transmission until the ABS system communicates that traction has returned. More than likely there is a failure in the ABS system. The problem may be intermittent right now but this will need to be repaired. If you have an ABS code reader please let me know what codes are stored. If not then you will need to send your car in for diagnostis and an estimate for repair, let me know if I can be of any more help, good luck.
