SOURCE: car starts then stalls immediately

take the alternator off and have it tested at the auto parts store, this is more than likely your problem....

if it is good, then you need ot check your fuel injectors....

SOURCE: abs light stays on

I had this exact same problem, on a older bronco II. You need to get the ABS computer reset. You can either take it in or buy a computer your self. There are even packages that will allow you to use your own computer and just hook the car up to your lap top or desk top if you can get a cable long enough.

I never had mine done, because back then the computers were so expensive. I never caused a problem because it was only in the braking system. Now they are pretty cheap and there are a lot of other cool things you can do with them. You can reduce your gas requirements and set it for pulling, racing, and fuel efficency on the fly now. Just at the touch of a button.

SOURCE: 1998 Lincoln Town Car: No turn signals, 4 way flash, brake lights

If only your brake light in middle of rear window works then your other bulbs are bad. If brake lights all work in the back than bulbs are good. If you put turn signal on right or left and the bulbs light in front and back then you need to change multifunction light control box under dash. My understanding is it cost $600 new. So I would try used.

the traction control system works off of the abs system so there is a code in the abs module that needs to be pulled so you know were to start to check the system out.the service engine light is a different system all together and there is a code in the ecm that must be pulled so you know were to start to check to repair that system.you don`t say why you jumped to the conclusion that the gas cap set a code.the emergency brake light will come on if the e-brake is not all the way in the off position(something may be holding the lever up just enough to put the light on.the switch could be misadjusted and needs to e readjusted.

Just bought a 97 Aurora and had tires put on front and balanced. Now traction light comes on while driving and RPM goes to 0. After I pull over, it will run fine...What could be the problem?


OK, when the traction light or abs light goes on when driving then it could be a bad wheel speed sensor or traction control module. IF the RPM goes to 0, that may be an engine sensor problem or wiring to the sensor for the crankshaft position sensor or cam sensor.

Practically you can check on the harness and connectors to the instrument cluster for loose connectivity. remove the dashboard carefully and cehcck for dry solder or loose connections, use a lens to check for pcb line break or cracks.

Traction control light comes on after about 15 mins at idle or driving .turn car off and restart light goes out but eventually comes back on car seems to drive ok with light on or off


you can check weather the traction control is working by putting the car in first gear and with one wheel on grass and the other on tarmac pull away as fast as you can.you should feel the power drop and when both wheels match each other for rotation a clean acceleration will occur.i.e.the car will not pull toward the tarmac...and spin on the grass.as this is part of the abs system it could be your brakes are due for renewal.they have wear indicators...take a wheel off and look through the caliper end, over 1/8th inch is just about the lowest to go.

Enhanced Traction System Warning Light (TRAC OFF)


Sometimes it's a complaint with the ABS braking system. If it comes on and you have no other problems and stays on for while, check your brakes. I have had this issue before and had my brakes replaced. They were worn but for some reason were not squeaking.
