Asked by Feb 16, 2015 at 10:22 AM about the Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Its your traction control. You might have bumped the button on the dash or center console. Start the car,find the button marked ESC and press it. If the light doesn't go off its probably going to be a mechanical issue with the wheel bearing or the wires leading from the bearing to the car. The abs and traction control sensors are in the wheel bearing or hub assembly.

Check if you have a MAF sensor code if you do clear code and that will fix it!
