My traction control and abs light came on at the same time a few days ago. How do i fix this problem?
I'd start by getting a BRAND new battery, then clean the ground connection TO the chassis, and the one going to the engine...with new power it may come back to normal, and get out of "limp" mode~
It's most likely a bad ABS (anti-lock brake system) speed sensor. Although, given the age of your vehicle, it may be something more expensive such as the ABS pump and modulator assembly. When the computer detects a problem in the ABS system the traction control is also disabled. That's why both lights came on together. Both systems work together to help you maintain control in slippery or emergency situations. Your vehicle IS safe to drive but you do not have the benefit of the ABS and traction control features.
