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?

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?

The B1 notification light came on a few months ago and I took my car in to be serviced. My light just came on again to get my oil changed and it popped up with B1 service again. I drive a fair amount, but it seems ridiculous that I would need to get all of those things "checked" again. What are the odds of this and is it really necessary to get this service done again?

I have a 2003 mercury mountaineer with 71,000 miles. It has been running fine until Friday evening when the service engine light went on.
