Q: Q: Traction Control and ABS lights on

asked by on

The traction control and ABS lights are on.

Hello there! The illumination of these warning lights indicates a system shutdown because of some malfunction. Since the Traction Control and ABS systems share many sensors, the fault may have to do with a sensor that is tied to both systems, such as a vehicle speed or wheel speed sensor. An experienced mobile mechanic, like the ones here at YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose the issue based on the Traction Control light and suggest the most appropriate repair.
