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)
could be a locked up compresser or clutch
Go to your local library and find the manual
No it will not.
Check engine light is for telling you that there is A problem with the fuel injection or emissions system, Most of the time there is no major problem to really wory about. ETS is the light for the Enhanced Traction system (traction control) This is not A vital component of your car.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Both of those said, I suggest you take your car to A repair shop to have it checked out to determine the problem.
It would really be best to go to a wheel alignment shop.
You need to have the computer scanned to find the reason why the engine light is on. Some large auto parts stores do this for free Normally the ETS check engine light has nothing to do with the engine running bad. The ETS is part of the traction system in the car. Depending on the age of the vehicle, you might want to disconnect the negative battery cable on the vehicle for a few minutes, and then hook back up. In older vehicles, it will reset the computer and the light should go off. It does this in a 1996 model. Worth a try.. ETS stands for Enhanced Traction System, and has nothing to do with emissions or cooling. But the computer will almost always de-activate the ETS when a problem is detected, and thus turn on the light. This is normal on the Cavalier. The Check Engine light does mean the emissions system has a problem. Have the computer scanned for the codes by someone who is able to interpret the codes and not just throw parts at the problem. This takes skill and knowledge, so take it to a professional, and don't waste money guessing.
Don't. It came on for a reason. Go to a garage.
No, only these go into 98: 1, 2, 7, 14, 49, 98.
2 and 49 go into 98 2X49=98
Yes, that is possible.
If you have a driver information center (DIC), go to the settings and change your units from English to metric.
The two whole numbers that can go into 98 are 1, 2, 7, 49, and 98.
The light is one because there is a problem with the emissions system. Once the problem is corrected the service tech will reset the light.
I just had this problem on my 98 Frontier because the brake lights were staying on. I had to replace the brake light switch and the brake light button for it to go out.
Because the oil is low.
The circuit board/socket in the tail light has failed.
