Abs light means that a problem is being sense in the anti lock brake system, Traction control only activates when needed and is not related to the abs light, if you turn the traction control on and try driving and making the car slide the traction control will activate.but as for the abs light you need to get your brakes checked.

    I had the same problem. It is caused by a wheel hub sensor or its connector being fouled or corroded. The traction control system will not engage if these connections/sensors are bad. (they ARE related as far as the computer is concerned). To figure out which one is more trial and error unless you have a computer diagnostics device. (It's usually the front wheel hubs as they wear faster and are more likely to need replacing).

How can I tell if a 96 Toyota Avalon XL has ABS


Easiest way is turn ignition switch on to run position do not start. Warning lights will light up on dash panel. There will be a orange light that comes on, if it has abs. Part of the self test diagnostics of abs system relates to this light coming on. If orange light goes on you have at least rear wheel abs. If you see wires coming out of the center of the back of each front wheel you have 4 wheel abs.

Sounds like the blinkers are blinking but they're not. Traction control and abs lights are on. (spent over $1200 on 3 visits to solve this one) Security light flashes and car won't start for 10 minutes....


BLINKER PROBLEM IS THE MULTI FUNCTION SWITCH FAULTY.WHICH IS THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH DIMMER SWITCH AND WIPER SWITCH AND ALSO HEAD LIGHT SWITCH.YOU HAVE REMOVE STEERING COLUMN COVER BEFORE YOU CAN REMOVE THE MULTI FUNCTION SWITCH.TURN OFF RADIO DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY WAIT 15 MINUTES SO THE AIR BAG IN STEERING WHEEL WILL DISCHARGE. SECURITY LIGHT PROBLEM IS IN THE CAR KEYS WORN WHERE THE BCM AND PCM CANT RECOGNIZE THEM OR THE IGNITION SWITCH AND BCM IS FAULTY.THIS IS A DEALERSHIP FIX THEY HAVE TO REPROGRAM THE KEYS OR IGNITION SWITCH AND THE BCM.ALSO THE ABS AND TRAC LIGHT ON.CHECK ABS FUSE OR RELAY IF BOTH GOOD.DEALERSHIP HAS TO FIX THEY HAVE SPECIAL SCANNER TO CHECK THE ABS AND TRAC SYSTEM. FOR SPEAKERS EITHER THEY HAVE POOR WIRES CONNECTION

Abs warning light comes on and stays on whilst driving had abs system checked for codes comes up with no fault codes found. light cant be turned off until u switch off the engine and turn back on again....


if the sensor is located on the diff. sometimes the lube in diff gets lots of metal shaving and they collect on tip of abs sensor and cause it to ground out to triger light on if this is the case you have to have diff. flushed and refilled with fresh lube.

I need to remove the abs light in my 1992 bmw 520i. ABS works fine, however in order to pass inspection, the light will not go out. I am tired of spending money and getting no where to fix the problem....


for the m.ot the light has to be on then go out. i cant see why this cant be fixed, it must not be working. what i have seen to blag a mot is, a wire from the oil pressure switch to the abs light, when off on and running out, this works but leaves the car no abs, you sure not a sensor or the brain died

My 2002 chevorlet trailblazer LT abs light came on and stays on and turns off if i break and when i let go it goes on it started a couple weeks ago now the light doesnt turn off at all i took the fuse out...


unfortunatley no. u cant turn the light out.any lights having to do with safety and stuff cant b turned out. honestly go to a garage and just ask them to clean it for you. ur parking brake is interconnected with ur abs though. if its sticking or nething it too will make it go off. id get sum1 to put a code reader on it. advance and autozone will do it for free.
