Check engine light on ? Have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . All problems maybe linked together . If you don't want to take to a qualified repair shop , auto part stores will check codes for free ,most will ! i hear advance charges $20 now. Third brake light may just be a bulb or the Stop lamp relay in the under hood fuse box.
Stop Lamps
The body control module (BCM) is responsible for controlling the stop lamps. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the BCM will receive a signal from the brake pedal position sensor. The BCM then supplies battery positive voltage to both left and right stop lamp assemblies and to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL). The stop lamps are grounded at G401 and G403. The CHMSL is grounded at G302.

Malibu hybird 2008 /service traction /engine power reduced


Your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop. Special tool's and knowledge are needed . Scan tools , electrical diagnostic , service information . Your vehicle has a bunch of computers (control modules) C.A.N. cantroller area network serial data communication networks . Hi speed , med. speed , low speed . The power steering is electronic ,computer controlled , sensors on the steering shaft .With those light's lit , DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are stored etc... Plus there is a real chance of being electrocuted. High voltage !

Did you check the blub , is there power ( B+) at the third light ? Is the ground G302 good ? Do you have a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , do you know how to use one ? Do you know what voltage drop is ? an know how to test it ? Check the stop lamp relay in the under hood fuse / relay box.

2008 wrangler. abs, esp and traction control light staying on. checked brake fluid and fuses


Check first the third eye brake light. does it work? okay the problem reside in a ABS sensor make sure it is hook up or if you recently did a brake job it didnt get contaminated. When the ABS signal is interfered with ESP,Traction is disabled. One or some of the wheel speed sensor is disconnected or is being interfered with. This is common for a recent brake job if any occured

Check engine light on , traction control comes on and service traction control light comes on and lose of power


Your check engine light is on because the computer detected a problem with the car. Take it to Autozone and they will scan for the problem.They do this for free. They can let you know what the problem is. This will take the light off also. Other auto part stores do the same service for free. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

The torque converter clutch circuit may be at fault. The best way to determine the problem is to have a scanner/computer to read check engine codes.
