Pcs, trac off, and service engine soon lights all come on at same time. I know it has to do with an independant braking system tied in with abs and trac control. The car stalls when im at a light, then it take 10 sec at least to start up and all of those lights will be on. How do I fix this?? Is it a sensor that I can replace without taking the vehicle to a dealership that will just charge an arm and a leg for something that I could do?? It seems to me this should be a recall, since everytime I

The ABS and Brake lights on my 2000 Silverado Z71 come on periodically. While I know there is no relationship with the fuel system and the braking system, these lights come on every time I have a rough start. I recently had the fuel pump changed and am still having some difficulty starting. Dealer said I may need to replace some fuel pressure regulator for an additional gazillion (dealer charges) dollars. I just find it odd that these lights only come on when there is a starting problem with t

My friends 02 ford escape abs light came on before a trip. I found that the passenger side rear wheel cylinder was leaking badly. I replaced both wheel cylinders and also installed new brake shoes, I then did bleed the complete brake system thoroughly flushing the system till I got clean brake fluid, to insure there was no air in the system. Now the abs light comes on as soon as the brakes are applied to stop, sometimes there is no brakes on the vehicle. There are no leaks in the system. She jus

2 weeks after I had brake pads replaced ABS and TC light came on and it was found that a sensor connection was loose. Drove fine for 2 weeks and light came on again. Serviced aging and a new sensor placed. Came on again 2 weeks later, new rotars put on. Was fine for one week and now both lights are coming on again. Prior to the lights coming on I can feel a pulsation in the gas and brake pedal. Brakes work fine when ABS and TC lights are on.

BMW (1996) e36 318i ABS fault. The ABS fault light stays on which means that the ABS system is deactivated. The diagnostic check when the car was serviced was that the front left brake sensor was faulty and so we had this replaced however when the fault is reset on the onboard computer it comes back on after driving a short distance. The workshop (not BMW) says the ECU is at fault. Could this problem not be one of the 2 ABS relays in the fuse box?

The is no air in the system, I have had that check several times. The second is that the brake light comes on at different,

My uncle has hooked it up to a scanner and it doesnt give a code(i'm guessing because the service ENGINE light is not on) . I have replaced the brakes and rotors , it still doesn't stop them from coming on. Please help!
