WITH MY 98 CAVELIER,I FOUND THE VACUMN LINE TO THE MAP SENSOR OFF AND I REPLACED IT. NEXT I WENT THROUGH THE GEARS,AND THE E.T.S. LIGHT WENT OUT.THE ENGINE CHECK LIGHT WAS STILL ON AND I NOTICED I HAD THE LARGE HOSE "CARB TO AIR FILTER OFF" I INSTALLED IT AND THE LIGHT WENT OUT."IT HAS A SENSOR IN IT" SUMMARY IS THE CAR RUNS FINE. LOUIEBELLSON@COMCAST.NET HERES A BETTER SOLUTION... instead of wasting money that you don't need to, puh the button on the side of your shift knob. That's the ETS button. It will turn it on.
ETS is the traction control system. If you want it, you simply push the button to turn it on... you may have hit it inadvertently.. I used to own a 99 Grand Am (another GM product) and constantly did the same thing. Or it could be a fault in the ETS system. As for the check engine light, the first thing you do is find out the cause of it. You can go to any auto parts store and have them read the fault codes with their OBD2 scanner.
If these two lights come on together then the extra traction sensor is broken and needs to be replaced when the sensor is fixed the check engine light will go off and the ets light will work properly again.
Check the coolant level in the reservoir. If that's up and the vehicle isn't overheating, you probably have a bad sensor.
I have a 98 Grand Cherokee 5.9 limited that does the same thing.
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
ets is enhanced traction system ... pretty much, it prevents the wheels from slipping and increase traction (obviously) but, its wicked fun to turn off because the tires spin out essentially, the way this works is that the system reduces engine output ... so there you go
The ABS and ETS light are interconnected because they use the wheel speed sensors to calculate wheel slippage or wheel lock-up. If there is a faulty wheel speed sensor detected the computer will turn on the fault lights and disable the systems (will not work if the car goes into a skid, etc)
Go to your local library and find the manual
could be a locked up compresser or clutch
No it will not.
It would really be best to go to a wheel alignment shop.
