Clearing/resetting ABS and Traction Control system warning lights - 2006 Buick Terraza

As long as your car's brakes work and is safe to drive, take it to any parts store. They have error code readers that can reset these alarms. If they are not able to reset them then you will probably have to take your car to a brake shop for maintenance on your ABS sensors. Traction control is associated with the ABS sensors.

98 Oldsmobile Aurora There's a on my Dash it says information center and has the oil fuel speed all that it says low oil is there any way anybody knows how to reset that

Check your engine oil using the oil dipstick located on the engine - you need to add oil to the fill line as shown on the dipstick. You should have the oil replaced regularly (every 3-6 months) and keep your eye on the level if the engine is leaking oil underneath or burning a lot of it.

How do I clear a service emissions message on a 2005 Mercury Mariner with a 3.0L engine. I have performed the required maintenance procedures at both 30,9000090's and 60,000miles. Still have message.

Warning Messages The warning messages can interrupt the display until cleared or reset by the driver. The warning messages are either single cycle, non-resettable, or repetitive warning messages.
The single cycle warning messages display once whenever the ignition switch is turned to the ON position or a fault occurs in a system, and can be cleared by pressing the RESET button. The single cycle warning messages are:
  • liftgate ajar
  • liftgate glass ajar
  • service emission system
  • low brake fluid
  • service brake system
  • check left headlamp
  • check right headlamp
  • check left turn lamps
  • check right turn lamps
  • check left high beam
  • check right high beam
  • check brake lamps
  • check parking lamps
  • washer fluid low
  • check fuel cap
  • change oil soon
  • change oil now
  • low fuel
  • service 4x4
  • turn signal on

After replacing a fuse a bunch of warning lights came on dash disply

On many cars disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will re-set the codes. Others require use of a scan tool. You didn't bother to say what you are working on (always a good idea).

Mechanic was not sure how to reset maintenance overdue message once he serviced car. He tried pressing and unpressing trip odometer a few times without success while car was not running.

Got this of a forum. It's for the key less cars. Credit goes to the original poster.

2008-2009 Volvos with starter push button on dashboard

The trip odometer must have at least 0.1 mile on it or the light will not reset.
Get in vehicle and do not push down on the brake pedal
Put the key in the slot and push the starter button once
Press and hold down the odometer reset button
While doing this, push the starter button again and hold for 2 seconds
Keep the odometer reset button held in and watch the instrument cluster for the general warning indicator (I) to illuminate. When this happens, release the button.
Turn the vehicle off then back on and verify the message is now out.
