View Full Version : Angry Lights! =/

car runs fine... as soon as I put it in to drive and start to move it Either freaks out with the ABS & No Tractions Lights and or Service Vehicle Soon Light either the first 2 or all 3. Nothing seems to feel any different, also recently my car was hit a pot hole or a slight bump and my steering would become more loose (the speed controlled steering would shut off) When I shut off my car, the lights reset untill I start moving again. Now I did have my tranny flushed about 3K miles ago (and as far as I know it was the first time it was done in at least 47K miles) I'v heard that was a bad thing to do (after the fact of course) Any ideas?

My car is a 99 GAGT w/ 3.4 only "mod" is a CAI, 94K miles

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have no clue what to do.

Stupid question. Is the ebrake completely off? If it is then it sounds like you have either a bearing assembly going bad or a bad ABS sensor. In order to tell which sensor is bad, you will need to have the ABS codes read.

I hooked up an ODII scanner, one of the cheap ones a friend had, but i think it only reads engine codes, it didnt read a thing. Where is the abs sensor and is it an easy replacment?

You have to read the code first and unfortunately the cheap OBDII code readers won't work for this. Best thing I would say is find someone with a Tech 2 or have the dealer read the code. I know it's not a cheap way of fixing it but there is no cheap way around this problem. Find out what the code is, that way you know which wheel has the problem. Each wheel has its own abs sensor.

sounds like a possible abs sensor. get the codes read and start from there.
