I have a 98 Windstar with the same problem. According to my mechanic, it's the ABS controle module. It seems to be a common problem with these vans. Unfortunately, the module costs $1300. I am trying to find a used one, if I do and it fixes the problem, I'll let you know

The traction control system is turned off. If the abs light is also on, there is a malfunction.

When the trac light is off, on a Buick Century, the traction control monitoring system is disengaged. It is recommended to have the trac system engaged on wet roads.

Those lights stay on when the abs computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.

Trac off means your traction control is turned off.

Your car is equipped with Traction Control. This light means it is turned off.

one reason can be,is that the abs sensor were disconnected or ripped off. take off your front tires and check for any unplugged sensors or ripped wires Have the system checked for codes so you know what to look for.

Do you mean Trac off? It means that the traction assist function has been turned off. It is controlled by the trac button which if the alero is like the grand am is on the shift knob left side. Trac off is the normal driving position, turn the trac on for slippery conditions. ABS problems could cause the trac to fail as it is an application of the brakes to slow the faster wheel down to match the other side. speed sensors also have some affect.

These lights are probably all related. When there is a problem in the ABS system, this will disable the TRACTION system, which will inturn illumiinate the Service Vehicle Soon light. A common cause for this is there is a problem in the ABS. A faulty wheel speed senor or the harness to the sensor may be faulty. When the ABS computer (EBCM) sees a problem in the ABS, it can cause all these lights to come on. A scan of the ABS computer would be the first thing needed. Then, diagnosis of the system / circuit that is at fault would be needed. Tech JK -----------------------------------------------

AbS Trac modual needs to be replaced when the ABS light goes on. Unit cost is $500. new. You can send the part away and have it refurbished for as low as $125. You need a special socket to get it off. You can purchase this tool usually at the place where you get the part refurbished and they will give you a discount. Its about $5.00 for the tool. This is common with S70's
