Most likely a speed sensor at one of the front wheels has attachment broken.
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 -----------------------------------------------
Go to a parts store that can check your computers codes, if it is on constantly it is a hard code and something that is actually wrong, not just a temporary problem. ABS would be a sensor or something for the ABS most likely. If all of the lights are on constantly, and you have been very good with all your maintenance and repairs and have not been in any kind of accident or driving off road, I would suspect you have a major electric issue, such as the PCM or ECM or BCM. Not sure exactly what control modules the Dakota has. Also be aware, that in most cases, multiple types of scanners may be needed for checking multiple systems and is usually the case for ABS systems, so a standard code reader/scanner may not pinpoint your problem.
A bad sensor can cause the vehicle to shift at the wrong time or not at all.
Yes the alero does have abs it was and still is standard in GM passenger cars. Now that we cleared that up the light is on because there is a problem with the abs unit usually this is caused by someone not familier with newer cars changeing brakes and simply prying open the calipers without opening the bleeders. If this has been done the abs unit is destroyed and needs replaced. Also there is a rotation scenser at each wheel and on or all could be damaged such as the wires have been cut in some way or the scenser is bad.
It would waste electricity if the light were on all the time. It only needs to be on when the door is open.
The ABS light is on because there is a problem with the ABS. The ABS will not function when the light is on. The light will remain on until the problem is fixed.
it could be that one or all of your sensors are faulty, it could be the abs relay is faulty or it could be the abs pump that is faulty ( or it could also be a fuse )
Problem with the ABS.
No, if the light is on all the time there is a problem with the ABS system. Have this looked into by a professional.
the rotors do not have the ridges so the abs sensor can see something.did you purt abs rotors or non-abs rotors on vehicle. most cars light up brake when low on brake fluid, a few cars light up ABS to show same thing. Of course there is the possibility that there really is something wrong with the ABS circuit.
There could be something wrong with the ABS system and check the ABS sensors on all wheels. Also check the connections to the ABS unit and the traction control button.
that all depends on what code it is giving you , then repair what is wrong with the system .
The ABS light may indicate that the ABS system isn't working. The one in my van is coming on and going off from time to time. My mechanic says to wait until it is on all the time and he will replace the ABS module. The tire gauge light could mean that one or more of the tires have low pressure.
It means that the ABS computer has detected a fault with the ABS circuit, meaning that there is a problem with a wheel speed sensor, the ABS computer or the actuator. You'll need to have the ABS diagnostic codes read to find out what the computer thinks is wrong.
The ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) detects a problem with the system. The ABS light will remain on until the problem is fixed. Once the problem is fixed correctly the ABS light will reset itself.
I had the ABS light the light (which is the TCS indicator light) and the TCS light all on at the same time. Turned out to be one of my ABS sensors. According to my repair manual it states many diff things with all 4 lights involved with the TCS/ABS system. If its just the TCS system and not ABS then you will have only the TCS light on. If you have all 4 lights on (the 3 mentioned above) and the (Brake) light on then you have a problem with your entire ABS system. Hope this helps.
If the ABS light is on in your guage cluster, that indicates there is a problem with the ABS system. In another spot on this website the fellow says to : check your brake fluid level check your fuses check the electrical connection to the ABS pump. If you don't find anything wrong then take it in for service. I was lucky, my ABS light came on and when I touched the ABS fuse in the power distribution box in the engine compartment, it made a click sound and the ABS light went out. I guess the fuse wasn't installed all the way.
