You have a wheel sensor failed. Likely on the left rear. I have an 08 Saturn Vue and mine has failed repeatedly. First time Jan 09, then again Jan 10.. and once again in Jan 11. Finally dealt with GM Customer Service, as dealer just keeps replacing the sensor. They claim corrosion. GM CS told them to investigate further, so they replaced a connector and sensor this time. Not holding my breath. Thank god for warranty. Will probably end up getting rid of the car.

How do i reset my traction control

Is your trac light lit ? If so it has a problem an till it is fixed , you can't reset it. Need to have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
If the ABS control module detects a malfunction, it will disable TCS and will command the BCM to turn the TRAC LED Off. The driver can also disable TCS, if desired, by depressing the TRAC switch. When the driver depresses the TRAC switch, the ABS control module will disable TCS and will command the BCM to turn the TRAC LED Off.
DTC C0276 TCM Traction Control Not Allowed
DTC C0275 or C0276
The TCM sends a serial data message to the electronic brake control module (EBCM) indicating that torque reduction is temporarily not allowed.
DTC C0550
DTC C0896
The electronic brake control module (EBCM) is required to operate within a specified range of voltage to function properly. During antilock brake system (ABS) and traction control system (TCS) operation, there are current requirements that will cause the voltage to drop. Because of this, voltage is monitored out of ABS/TCS control to indicate a good charging system condition, and also during ABS/TCS control when voltage may drop significantly. The EBCM also monitors for high voltage conditions which could damage the EBCM.

ABS light come on when i am towing

the tcs system is detecting the weight and sway of the trailer because the load on the hitch is too much- that's the simple answer.

The ABS and TCS work together - the ABS system is what detects wheel spin and tell the TCS which diverts and/or control power.

After mechanic flushed brake system and replaced fluid on my 2008 Volvo C70, if I brake hard I get a red warning light that brake fluid pressure is low. Then it goes away. Why would I get this after the...

Check the fluid level. It's possible it is a tad low. Top off with the appropriate brake fluid, I believe it is DOT 4. If it comes back on in a few days than it is leaking somewhere possibly a bleeder that isn't quite tight enough.

2009 Saturn Vue XE, ABS/TCS/Stabilitrak lights on.

The Wheel Hub Brg is 162.79 at Rock Auto.Com
The sensor 30 to $55.00

Start using Google,Rock Auto & You Tube Video-- to
educate yourself-- before approaching these repair shops

From what is see on Rock- the speed sensor is not part of
the bearing assy on any of the 4 motors

If you can't lay under there to replace your own sensor,
if that is the only problem,I don't have any more to say
You don't need a shop to do that

Have a neighbor or relative do it

Abs and tcs is on my 05 saturn vue. can i reset somehow?

You have to understand that when you have any
type check lamp or malfunction lamp lite on your
dash, you not resetting things. Your vehicle has
detected a problem that has to be diagnosed & repaired

This technology started in north america in 1983 some
30 years ago,yet there a hundreds of these questions a
day, just on this web site,which tells me, people could care
less & drive until the vehicle quits & ends in an expensive repair,
most of which is diagnostic time to find the issues.

You surely know about checking for codes & having the
systems the codes point to component tested & the
cause of a check light repaired if necessary

ABS-anti-lock brake
TSC-traction control system

These can't be strange to anyone

Anytime you get any light on your dash & you will
get one a year you have it checked for codes &
within a day or two.
Otherwise stop using it

Then you have a good idea if you should be driving
it until you make a repair shop appointment or repair yourself
,that you will do within a week or so.

Abs & TCS-off dash lights both stay on. Pushing the TCS off switch does not help. "seem" to stop fine. Emergency brake seems to be fully off, not dragging. My wife encountered a patch of ice...

Hello: If there is a problem in the ABS it will bring on the tcs light as well. To determine what is causing the problem you need to have the ABS checked with a scanner to get the code. Then trouble shoot the components that the code leads you to. Normal braking is available with the light on but TCS is not as it relies on ABS for functioning the TCS.

The ABS, TCS, and ESP warning lights have suddenly come on in my 08 Saturn Vue. What do I need to do? Is the car safe to drive?

Safe? it depends what you think safe is. if going only a few miles or so TO THE DEALER you should be okay but only to the dealer, have it towed if its under warrenty cause the dealer could say they wont fix it cause you drove it with the light on. Also, the manual says what to do in this case. By the way, continued driving might cause more damage to the sensors and electrontics
I'm not telling you to drive it so you be the judge as to wether or not you should drive it to the dealer or tow it there. Dont worry it could be something as simple as a blown fuse

My 2008 Saturn Vue ABS and TCS lights suddenly came on. Is there a sensor connected to this problem?

Yes. Wheel speed sensor. I have an 08 Vue. Same problem happens every year. They say its a corroded wheel speed sensor. Happens every January, always on the left rear. Think they have a design flaw, but GM doesn't appear to agree with me.
