    all these lights are on in my car, originally they were on and the break pedals pulsated with the noise...When i took it the mechanic he fix the hub and the noise and pulsating stopped BUT the lights are still on. he says now that when he plugs it in it is still giving him three different error codes coming from the breaks. He says that it doesnt seem to have a problem with the breaks that the module it self might be messed up. I dont know anything about this but if anyone has any insight please help!

With these lights on then you will have to see what codes are in the abs and pcm module to find out what the problems are.the abs module will activate when the traction control lights come on.this can also cause a noise and pulsate in the brakes pedal.

Trac off light on


What kind of scanner are you using. that is a CAN vehicle and not just any OBDII scanner will work to read abs codes. Go to an Oreillys Auto Parts store and get the ABS codes read and message me back with the codes and I will be happy to help.

check the ABS sensors in each wheel may be dirty clean them but may have to clean the pick up in each wheel as it is teeth fitted to the shaft.

ABS light, Brake light, and trac control lights on no brake problems. have to turn off engine and restart to clesr lights 2001 windstar


You most likely have a problem with the ABS brake system. First, check your brake fluid level as many vehicles have a fluid level switch that monitors brake fluid level and if the level is low it can turn off the ABS and turn on all those lights.[ABS is part of the Trac control] If that is good then you may have a failing wheel speed sensor, wiring, or a problem with the ABS controller itself which would require having someone connecting to and reading the ABS service codes with a scan tool to identify what the system saw that caused it to turn itself off. Brakes are a very important safety item so you should get it repaired as soon as possible!

Diagnosis faults of ABS


The number one "fault" of ABS is the NOISE that it makes when the ABS is activated. It makes a horrible banging noise, the brake pedal pulsates, and, if you have never heard it before, you'd swear that the front end was being hit by a lot of hammers. That being said, ABS is really a good idea to be on all cars. The only downside is that it does not work at all if the vehicle is sliding on ice, and all 4 tires are sliding. Then, there is no traction for the ABS to pulse fluid to a specific wheel or wheels.

2002 Buick Century anti-lock brake problems


i recently had this problem too, except i had all the lights on (ABS, service vehicle, trac-off, AND service engine) they are all easy to fix without spending more than 20-30$ for labour (depending how much your mechanic charges you) mine did it for free and he found out why the engine light is on afterwards too. so to fix all these lights (abs, trac-off, and service vehicle you MUST get another ABS cable (i went to a garage, they were towing a GM vehicle to the junk yard so i grabbed some scissors and cut BOTH abs cables on each side (good thing i did because one was bad) and braught them to my mechanic. the reason the lights come on is probably a defect or in my case my mechanic said it was salt buildup in the wires (on the drivers side) so he cut the wire off and rewired the new one and BOOM all the lights came off (service vehicle, abs, and trac-off) now for my service engine it says catalytic converter but im trying to put some fuel system cleaner to help it out i read somewhere that this is a defect of the car, so if you dont have that light yet, SELL your car ASAP for as much as you can get for it (after fixing the lights of course) and always google (car name+recalls) in the search bar to see what youre getting into, take care
