I think your traction control button is on the center console behind the Shifter.
But, I don't think that is the problem. That switch will cause the traction control and light to turn on and off. It should not affect the brake light and anti-lock light.

I would first check your brake fluid level. Top it off with the correct fluid. The fluid is a DOT number; like DOT3 or DOT5. Use the correct DOT fluid.
If the fluid is very low, you may need your brake fluid system bled to remove any air. And you may want to check the brake pads. Low fluid may mean you need new pads.

If that doesn't work, go to an auto parts store that will scan your car for ODB2 error codes. AutoZone will do it for free. I suspect you may have a bad wheel bearing. That will cause the ABS and Trac lights to go on. I've replaced GM bearing/sensors on several of my cars. The last one was my 2005 Bonneville. The bearing and sensor are combined in one unit.

2000 buick regal , track light on, anti lock brake light on???


You will need to take it to the GM dealer or any well equipped brake shop and have the system ABS/Traction Control system computer scanned, a fault has occurred in the system and at this time you have no Traction control or Anti-Lock brakes. When the lights were turned on the systems control module stored a code for the fault in the system. The ABS and Traction Control are one in the same system.

My tahoe has the traction off light what doe that mean?


It means the traction control system has been disabled. It can be done manually by pressing the switch on the dash or by an onboard computer (meaning there is a problem). If you can't press the button to get the light off, then get it scanned. Traction control system works with the anti-lock braking system and the engine to help the driver control the vehicle in the event it should be slipping or skidding. It will activate the anti-lock brakes, help reduce steering pressure to better steer and can sometimes cut out engine cylinders to reduce the power going to the wheels to better control in the skid.

My ABS light is on and off on a 2006 Mercury Mariner. Do I need to do something to get this light to stay off


SECTION 206-09: Vehicle Dynamic Systems 2006 Escape/Mariner/Escape Hybrid/Mariner Hybrid Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Procedure revision date: 03/29/2005 Anti-Lock Control adobe.gif Printable View (63 KB) The ABS consists of the following components:
  • Hydraulic control unit (HCU)
  • Anti-lock brake control module
  • Front and rear wheel speed sensors
  • Front and rear wheel speed sensor rings
  • Stability control sensor cluster
  • Stability/traction control switch
The ABS prevents wheel lock-up by monitoring the wheel speed sensors and actuating the HCU modulating the brake pressure to prevent wheel lockup. By preventing the wheels from locking up, the driver is able to maintain steering control and stop in the shortest possible distance under most conditions. The traction control system utilizes the same components as the ABS to prevent wheel spin and help maintain vehicle control during acceleration. The roll stability control (RSC) system utilizes the same components as the ABS and the traction control systems and also monitors the steering wheel position sensor and the stability control sensor cluster to assist in stabilizing the vehicle during abrupt maneuvers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The ABS module is self monitoring. The module will carry out a preliminary electrical check of the hydraulic pump motor by turning the pump ON for approximately 1/2 second either when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position and the brake pedal is not pressed or when the vehicle is in motion and at vehicle speeds above 20 km/h (12 mph). The ABS module will also carry out a wheel speed sensor self-test by sending a reference voltage to all of the wheel speed sensors through their circuitry when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, with or without brake pedal application. If a malfunction is detected in the pump or wheel speed sensors, the ABS module will shut down and disable the anti-lock system. Normal power assisted braking, however, remains.

You may need to have the dealer run a scan test to determine the DTC fault codes. Then go from there. Autozone can't read these codes as tehy are chassis codes. They only can read powertrain codes.

Good luck. please rate.

Abs light is on and tractiioncontrol light says off but cant turn it back on with switch


abs light means that a problem is being sense in the anti lock brake system, Traction control only activates when needed and is not related to the abs light, if you turn the traction control on and try driving and making the car slide the traction control will activate.but as for the abs light you need to get your brakes checked.

Warning light on are trac off, anti-lock, brakes, service engine


You need to have the abs system scanned for codes. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor on one of wheels.

ABS light came on and also the Advanctrac light....says check ADVtrac.


There are many sensors on your anti-lock brake system, as well as on your traction control system. Sometimes one giving a signal will set off the other one. Unless you are can physically feel any symptoms, then a computer test is really the only way to tell what the problem is. Many auto part stores offer to check the computer, and many of those will do it for free. One you know what the computer says is wrong, you can have the problem repaired. You can still drive your vehicle, but be aware that it is highly possible that your anti-lock function as well as the traction control system may not work. The anti-lock keeps your wheels from locking up if you slam on the brakes. The traction control diverts power and/or uses the anti-lock brake system to reduce braking on a certain wheel. I would imagine that there is a problem with the anti lock brake system since it is used in the traction control system. Hope it turns out to be small!

I heard a loud pop or something then my dash said trac off and my engine light came on. Now my car is shaking really bad with a loud noise and a faint smell of gas.


On applications with traction control, there is a switch to deactivate the system, which is normally enabled any time the ignition is turned on. TRAC ON and TRAC OFF lamps inform the driver of system status. The controller may deactivate the traction control system temporarily after it has been engaged for a certain period of time to prevent heat buildup in the brake linings and possible brake fade. ABS braking is not affected by the status of the traction control function. In your case it is the Anti Lock Brake system. You have to take it to a shop and have the antilock brake system checked with some special tools.

Chevrolet Equinox Brake Light Flashing


If it is an amber light that says " anti lock" You will be safe, you just wont have anti lock brakes. The car may have traction controll. If so, look in the manual to be sure what light is on. As a general rule amber lights are warnings and red lights means stop. If the light stays on you will have to go to the dealer to have the code read.

TRACTION CONTROL.


that is what it is desgined to do - reduce acceleration and apply the brakes intermittently when the wheels spin. You have a switch you cn push to disable it. You need to disable each time you start car. See owner manual.

06-10: Traction Control 1996 Contour, Mystique Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Traction Control System The optional traction control system is designed to control wheel spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces. Traction control system is available only with anti-lock brakes. The traction control system includes the following components:
  • Hydraulic control unit.
  • Throttle control actuator (9N825).
  • Traction control switch.
  • Traction control warning indicator.
  • Front brake anti-lock sensor (2C204).
  • Rear brake anti-lock sensor (2C190).
The traction control system operates as follows:
  • System functions by transferring torque from the spinning wheel to the wheel with the most traction.
  • This is achieved by applying the brake at the spinning wheel through the hydraulic control unit or reducing the throttle opening.
  • Traction control braking and throttle control occur at vehicle speeds up to 50 km/h (30 mph).
  • At vehicle speeds above 50 km/h (30 mph), only throttle limiting control is used.
  • If speed control is operating when traction control system engages the traction control system will disengage speed control through the use of a speed control relay. This action is the same as applying the brake pedal with speed control engaged.
1996 contour
Traction Control Switch The traction control switch is located on the instrument panel, left of the steering column.
