Usually the ABS and traction control off lights will come on
say for example-- if one will spins the others kick in and provide the control of vehicle. this is what a traction control does.
See "Related Questions" below for information on the ABS/Traction Control sensors...
where is the fuse for the traction control module located on a 2000 Cadillac Seville
The speed sensor is probably defective.
The traction control and the ABS both use the wheel speed sensors in the wheel bearings
There isn't a single traction control sensor. The system uses the wheel speed sensors, at each wheel bearing, along with numerous other inputs.
THE TRACTION CONTROL SENSOR IS INTERGRATED INTO THE ABS CONTROL MODULE. EBCM (ELECTRONIC BRAKE CONTROL MODULE). THIS IS LOCATED ON THE DRIVER FRONT INNER FENDER WELL. THIS UNIT HAS STEEL LINES AND ELECTRICAL WIRE COMING OUT OF IT....WHEN THIS MESSES UP ABS LIGHT AND TRACTION CONTROL DOES NOT WORK.. DEALER PRICE ON EBCM IS $850.00 PLUS LABOR!
abs sensor and traction control sensor
On a 2004 Chevy Impala, the traction control sensor is located in the ABS pump module. On the driver side of the car, the sensor is located at the left center of the engine compartment with black wires hanging from it.
sounds like a wheel speed sensor has gone out you will need ot replace the wheel bearing.
You may have a bad wheel speed sensor (inside bearing assembly) or poor connection at plug connector to sensor. Replacement harness is available. When traction / abs lights are on have trouble codes checked at autozone or advanced auto to see what wheel it is.
Probably a bad front wheel bearing/hub assembly with the abs sensor in it
It is a sensor that monitors wheel speed and sends that info to the abs module and/or the traction control module.
possibly could. first check the abs sensors if bad they could think the wheel is skidding and therefore lose its traction, check wires to abs sensor.
it is a enhanced traction service light simple sensor
Passlock sensor (Ignition housing) Or body control module fault
In general, if you see this light come on while driving a car with traction control, it means that the system has detected a loss of traction on one or more wheels. The traction control system will engage to correct it. Usually it only lights up briefly. If that light stays on all the time, there's something wrong with the sensor or the electrical connection to the light.
Probably one of your wheel speed sensors
There is no such thing as a 'traction control sensor'.But, If you are referring to the "Traction Control System", there are Many components that make up the Traction Control System.The heart of Traction Control System is the "EBCM" (Electric Brake Control Module). The EBCM monitors the wheel speed sensors for Drive Wheel Slip. When drive wheel slip is noted while the brake is not applied, the EBCM will enter "Traction Control Mode".When vehicle enters Traction Control Mode, the EBCM sends a request to the "PCM" (Power Control Module) to reduce the amount of torque to the drive wheels. If the engine torque reduction does not eliminate drive wheel slip, the EBCM will actively apply the drive wheel brakes.The EBCM in the 05' Buick Terraza is located on the "BPMV" (Brake Pressure Modulator Valve). In other words, the EBCM is mounted on the Antilock Brake Controller.
My 2002 Impala was doing the same thing. I took it in and they said it was code C1225. Traced to broken LF ABS Speed Sensor Harness. They replaced the harness and charged $231.88 at a dealership.
A Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) senses the speed of the vehicle. Used for automatic transmission shift points and other electronics. Another speed sensor would be a wheel speed sensor. This one monitors wheel speed for ABS and Traction control.
One of the speed sensors runs the speedometer/odometer and transmission shift patterns, other speed sensors run the abs and or traction control.
Need to change the whole bearing...
you take it out.
