ABS and Traction dash lights come on

Asked by Feb 11, 2017 at 05:39 PM about the 2011 Ram 1500 SLT Crew Cab

Question type: General

When driving my truck it wants to lock up and the
two lights come on. What can I look for to get this
problem solved. I have taken it to a mechanic and a
dealership and they were confused.

Most likely a problem with the anti-lock brake system (ABS). The ABS and traction control systems work together. When the computer detects a problem with one system, both are disabled and both lights come on. You'll need a scan tool that can communicate with the ABS computer to see what's going on. Sounds like a wheel speed sensor for the ABS. I'm surprised that the dealer couldn't diagnose it in like 10 minutes! Must be an inexperienced tech who looked at it! HTH. -Jim
