Answers :

It is most likely a wheel speed sensor. It needs to be put on a computer to determine which one. The sensors are in the wheel hub assy.

2004 Ford Taurus dashboard warning lights come on at start up and stay on at times. Fuel cap, door or ABS etc. are the lights not the check engine light which goes off. When the lights stay on the odometer does not come on to display any info. Usually happens after car has sat for a day or two. Driving a short distance, stopping and restarting car usually clears issue. Can a weak battery cause this? Still has factory battery but car starts right so I really don't think the battery is bad b

My car's check engine light came on and stayed on. The care seemed to run fine. I was going to take it in then i got home and parked it and it was like all of the lights on the dashboard went "nuts" they all stay on and won't go off. The oil-abs-check engin-ect. Also it looks like the fule gauge is broke. It acts like it is ging to work when you start the car but coes to empty. I cant tell if it is in drive or not because all of the lights on the dash stay light (D_R_1_2-3) any ideas.


Hi.Evidently the check engine light came on for some reason.At a glance you may have a problem with the ECU itself (computer) , or a wiring problem, with a contact messing up the car main control module.Also a lose conta ... 2002 Chrysler Sebring

84 el camino, the running lights started poping fuses, 20 amps. After checking behind the light switch, found the harness had been hot over the years. Changed the harness, no changes; still no running lights. The head lights come on, no problem. Now the dashboard lights stay on. The brown wire on the light switch should be hot, its not. The inside fan, A/C or Heat doesn't come on. What's happening with the electrical system.


MORE THAN LIKLY you burnt something like a fuse or a relay or possibily something in front or in back of the harness i know thats a lota help but different people have diff. solutions sometimes. CLOWNY DAGGERS ... 1987 Chevrolet El Camino

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?


Hi,the traction control light coming up means there is a fault detected in the system and a scan tool will be required to learn what fault has been detected. Possible steering angle sensor, wheel speed sensor or brake pressure sensor since the light ... 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette

While driving; the vehicle runs fine and all of a sudden the dashboard lights will come on (security, battery, abs, fuel needle to empty, seatbealt), however the car continues to run. Sometimes it will stay on for more than 15 minutes and then disappears. Sometimes it will come out at the start and stays on for 10 minutes. While parked (all doors shut), the security lights remains lit. What causes this problem?

Good Morning. My ABS light comes on intermittently in my 2001 Nissan Xterra SE model. The light will stay on until I turn the car off, but when I start it back up later the light is off. For the light to come on I don't even have to depress the brake pedal, just driving down the road seems to trigger the dipslay. Could someone please explain to me what might be causing this? I've had someone check the brakes and was told all is well there. I'm uncertain of what to try next. Thank yo


A lot of times the sensors on each wheel become covered with brake dust if you remove the wheels and clean the sensor with brake cleaner this will solve the problem but keep in mind it may happen again when the brake dust gets on the sensor again ... 2001 Nissan Xterra

Hello we have a 2000 mercedes clk430 and when you are driving and attempting to stop it feels like the brakes are pumping themselves (the brake petal) and then sometimes the abs and check engine light comes on and the car goes into fault mode and you have to pull over and restart the car to reset it and the check engine light will stay on but the abs light will go off of it and it will drive right until the abs light goes off again. We changed all four brakes and brake discs because we figured t

1999x j8l jaguar drivers side window wont roll down also sun roof wont stay open, everytime i open it, it closes after a couple seconds. also the dashboard lights go out once the headlights go on. I have checked all the fuses and they appear to be all good. Is there a relay switch that is causing these problems? if so which one. i also notice that the ignition key does not roll down/roll up all the windows like it once did.


Hi! Open the hood and you'll find the relay box, usually coded on the cover. Check for blown or burnt relay which may cause grounding causing the roof and windows to act unusual. THe power windows has relay inside the door too, you will need to detac ... Jaguar XJ8

I have a 2001 9-5 SAAB V-6 turbo. I took it to the dealer and they said it needed the ABS Modulator, the speed odometer quit working. The abs light, park break light, check engine light , and TCS light stay on. But every once in awhile the lights go out except the check engine light and the speed odometer starts working.

Hi. I have a 2002 Ford Windstar. The ABS and Emergency brake lights come on often and stay on. I had the brakes checked and they are fine. It had some quirks, like the radio turning on or off by itself, tail lights staying on after the van is turned off. I replaced the battery since it checked bad and now it is worse. I have no dome lights, no brake lights, no left turn signals only a right front turn signal, the radio still turns on and off on it's own, only the right puddle lamp turns on. I h

ABS light just came on, is it an easy fix. My abs warning light comes on often. It usually stays on until I restart the car, then it might stay off for days but will always relight. Often, I turn the ignition to "start" while driving and it goes out most of the time. Is a "code scanner" different than the computer you hook to your car for the check engine light? Do they have these scanners at Auto Zone, etc. or, only at repair shops where they charge $60 to read you codes?


The code scanner that you need is called ODBII code reader with ABS, and it works in the same way as the one that you connect to the car computer module (ECU) to read codes when the check engine light comes on, but the cheap ones that you can buy fro ... 2001 Chevrolet Blazer

The check engine light stays on. Sometimes it blinks and then sometimes it's solid on. We had a tune up and oil change done and the light went out after a couple days. Then within a week it came back on. One mechanic told us it was caused by some oxygen sensor. We want to get the problem fixed because when it came time to get it smog checked the light just happened to go out for a couple days. What is causing this?

I have two questions regarding the check engine light stays on problem: 1. If replacing the fuel fill cap had already fixed the cause of the problem, is resetting the counter the only thing a technician has to do? 2. If the fuel fill cap and refilling fuel with engine running are not the cause of the check engine light problem, what are the other causes if there is any? Thanks in advance!

I've owned our 99 Grand Caravan for 3 years and for 3 years occasionally all instruments would quit and I would pound on the dash and it would come back. About 2 years ago the abs quit and the abs light stayed on constantly. About 2 months ago the abs light went out but the abs still doesnt work. I have noticed that the transmission does up and down shift at lower speeds incorrectly. A year ago the check engine light came on and the transmission shifted extremely hard and I replaced the tra

Yesterday the Brake light and the ABS light stayed on when I started up my car (2001 Jimmy). I drove it home from the store (approx 3/4 mile) and parked it. Later I started the car up and the lights did not stay on. This morning again the lights did not stay on and I drove 20 miles to work. Should I take it to the shop to get checked out? Or do you think it was just a fluke thing?
