Service engine light and abs senor light will not turn off

\015 Both indicators will not turn off,and when slippery roads come up the trac control indicator light does not come on anymore, I had both abs sensors replaced.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Some times the wheel speed sensor will go out on either side. This will make the A.B.S. light come on. But I dont see why the service engine light would come on. I would segest changing all wheel speed sensors and take it for a drive. The A.B.S. light should go out. If the service engine light dose not go out your local auto parts stors can run a diagnostics test to tell you what the light is on for.

I have a 1996 Volvo 850, non-turbo. It has a traction control button near the gear shift (never worked). On the dash idiot lights, ASB, Trax Loc and Service Engine warning lights stay on constantly and have for a long time. I replaced the mass air flow sensor as was indicated when I had a service analysis performed. Is there anyway to turn off any of the warning lights? I tried pulling fuses for the abs and trax loc, but nothing. I know the service engine light is a dealer specialty, but sure

2004 pontiac grand am has ABS light on, Low Trac light on, and Service Engine Soon light on..They came on after a couple days of a loud grinding/vibration noise coming from under the car. Visually, everything looks good. What could this be? It generally only makes the noise when driving straight or turning right. The noise has been going on for about 4 days and the lights came on around the 3rd day and both continue.

My service engine light just turned on, but I don't notice any problems other than my front right wheel squeaking at times, and during slow turns a "clunk" sound sometimes happens. These problems are most likely bad wheel bearings or suspension, and shouldn't activate the service engine light as far as I know. I have 109,000 miles on my 2000 blazer. Is it possible that the light turned on to remind me to get service done like a transmission flush or tune-up?

Why does the service engine, trac off and abs lights come on when I hit a bump, on a 2004 pontiac grand am. I found out I needed front brakes (inside) so replaced the front brakes (rotors were fine). The lights used to go off after I turned off the car and back on again, but now they stay on all the time, even after my new brake job.


There maybe a short in the ground wires somewhere.or one of the sensors for the brakes needs to be check. ... 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

I did see the service engine light on, brought to some of the near service station but they couldn't fix that. We brought also to the Mitsubishi service station. But they say it is okay, it means they couldn't find the problem too. I checked the oil, it was less than suggested. I add new oil one bottle. Several minutes turned the engine, and the service engine light was off. It happened a month later. I added the new oil, and several minutes later the service engine light was off again. My que

The service engine light is on constant. I have dianostic (OBD II) readings: P0141- Sensor heater circuit bank 1 sensor-2, P0178-Fuel composition sensor low, and P0179-Fuel composition sensor high.

Code drive 5 . My 2004 trailblazer posted a code "drive 5". It showed the "reduced engine poweer" light, and would not respond to the accelerator pedal. I had been driving in slow traffic. I pulled over, turned the engine off, and restarted it. The reduced engine power light went off, and it drove fine, but the service engine light stayed on. The next day, I filled it with gas, and then the service engine light went off. Then I had the code read and it came up "drive 5".

I had the ABS light come on along with the service traction control. I had it checked at a GM dealer and was told that the right hub needed to be replaced. I OK'd the work thinking it would take care of both of the service lights. The ABS light is out but the traction control light still comes on when making turns or when backing up at times. The GM service rep said nothing could be done until the light stayed on. What is causing the light to come on when traction control is not even needed?

Abs light ,trac off, and service engine soon would come once in awhile, but now its on all the time. my turn signals sometimes won't work either.


These are differnt issues. The Trac off light is on because the ABS is on most common reason is because of a bad abs sensor which is part of the wheel bearing unless there is any damaged wiring.Your check engine light is on for another reason there ... 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
