If they all come on at the same time, chances are its a problem the engine computer has found. The wrench is a warning light for the engine and transmission, the ABS and traction control involve both the drivetrain as well as the brakes. So if a problem pops up in one system the computer knocks out the others too.
Have the main computer checked for trouble codes and go from there.

SOURCE: wrench, ABS, aniti skid, 4x4 lights on dash

I have a 2005 Eddie Bauer edition Explorer and I just went throught this problem last week. I first want to say I know less about cars than the average guy so I took it to a "family mechanic" he said I had a bad wheel bearing on the front passenger side. I went to Autozone and got the Duralast wheel bearing hub assembly w/ABS sensor and some new brake pads since I was taking the wheels off anyway. Bought a Haynes manual and used a friends garage and changed the hub assembly in a couple hours and the problem is fixed. So the thing I learned is don't start throwing expensive parts at it until you can get an "HONEST" diagnosis of the issue. Hope this helps you and others

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

Warning lights come on and off


You need to have delaer pull the codes from the computers on borad. It sounds like an ABS brake issue.

Autozone can pull codes for engine & trans for free, so you could try that first. Wrench light is also for brake, body & chassis, brake issues.

ABS/CHECK ADVTRAC/SKIDDING CAR LIGHTS GO ON


The abs sensors also control the traction control and 4 wheel drive actuators so if one of the sensors is faulty the traction control will be disabled and the drive system will be stuck in the mode set at time of failure be that 4x4 or 2wd
get the abs system repaired
