Why is my abs and traction control light on?

Your car has sensors that monitor wheel speed and constantly relay information to the ABS and Traction Control system. When any of your tires have low tire pressure, the ECU ends up sensing an abnormal speed. It may send off inaccurate or flawed information to the ABS or Traction Control, which inadvertently activates their warning signals.

What does the ABS light and traction control light mean?

The traction control computer in your vehicle is the “brain” that controls the entire system. A defect, corroded contacts or water damage in this computer can result in the entire system going offline, which will turn on the TCS warning light. As the TCS and ABS often share a computer, this may affect your ABS system and turn on that light, too.

What causes traction control problems?

Most of the time, the problem with the traction control switch is attributed to function, meaning that you won’t be able to turn it on or off. This is commonly caused by a traction control switch that is jammed with debris or has broken and won’t depress.

Why does the traction control light come on?

The traction control light comes on when the anti lock brake module detects a fault in the system. The abs module has to be scanned for the codes and then fault traced, repaired then the light reset.

Is it safe to drive with the ABS light on?
